Chic Week: Robert Verdi Retreat at Luxe Laboratory

While in New York another great event I attended was Chic Week: Robert Verdi Retreat at Luxe Laboratory.

Attending the retreat was perhaps one of my favorite highlights of New York Fashion Week. At the event I got to check out some of Robert Verdi’s ¬†fall favorites. It was fun getting to interact with the different brands while scoping out new products for the fall.

Here are some of the highlights from that event…

The Man himself…Mr. Robert Verdi

The Fresh Diet provided all the fabulous food and drinks…

The first thing I saw when I walked in were the Band-Aid Brand by Cynthia Rowley bandages! If you guys remember, I blogged about them a while ago but they were sold out so I’m happy I got my hands on a box at the retreat!

Next I let Kim from Incoco do my nails and I was in love…

Here’s a pic of my nails up close!!

Aren’t they amazing?? They lasted way longer than my minx and got so much attention!!

Then the lovely ladies of Maybelline got me picture ready.

They were the official makeup sponsor of Fashion Week, they sent me home with tons of straight off the runway looks to try out!

Remington let me try out their new Wrap & Waves Styler…which was right on time since I had to go to a fashion show after the event!

I need one of these in my life!!Check out my waves…

Next I got a chance to check out Hanes new Fall tights, I can’t wait to try out my pair.

Hanes is really stepping up their game with these fall patterns..

Jewelista was showing off their beautiful jewelry.

Kimmie was in the house showing off her Spring 2012 line for Sebago

I can’t wait to play with all my new swag, reviews coming up soon!!
