Marshalls Fall Fashion Challenge Kick-Off Luncheon

Who doesn’t love a good challenge right? A few weeks ago, I  received notification that I had been selected to be apart of the Marshalls Blogger Challenge! I was so excited but then quickly realized I didn’t know what all that entailed. This week while in New York for NYFW, I got a chance to meet up with the good folks over a Glam Media to find out more and boy was I in for a big surprise….

We were each greeted with an envelope that contained all the challenge details and a pretty white box!

I could hardly wait to see what was inside the box! After catching up with my love Lauren and the other bloggers it was time to open the magical white box!

We  played a game called White Elephant! Never heard of it?? Neither had I! The game is simple everyone picks a number and based on that number you get to pick any box. To make a long story short the higher the number the better because you can take what was in someone else’s box! For the most part nobody really took anybody else’s box although there were a few that I wanted to!

I ended up getting the Missoni x Brics Luggage… Can you believe it retailed for $499 and Marshalls sells it for $199! A steal!!

We also found out all the details of the challenge…

It essentially goes like this: every other week for the next 8 weeks we must style a fashion item that we purchase from Marshalls and create a complete look to go against my fellow competitors! Check out my fellow competitor blogs High Fashion 4 LessSkimbaco Lifestyle,  What the Frock and Lauren Messiah

Then it was time to eat…
