Carrie’s Chronicles x Alice + Olivia Fall ‘18 Shopping Event
Alice + Olivia has always been one of my favorite brands, as their design aesthetic perfectly aligns with how I’d describe my personal style. That’s why when I was asked to host an event at their Southampton store location, I was understandably ecstatic and honored. Attendees were invited to shop the 2018 Fall Collection, featuring trends such as animal prints, metallics, and plaids. Those invited were even given an exclusive 20% discount to celebrate my collaboration with the brand. “Alice + Olivia had the absolute pleasure of partnering with Carrie’s Chronicles for this event,” Sam Watts, Personal Shopper at Alice + Olivia asserts. “Carrie exudes effortless style and exemplifies what a true fashion cool girl should be. And we’re all about girl power here.”
Besides the racks of stunning outfits on sale, jars of millennial pink candies and gummies—to match the theme of my blog—were laid out on a table at the soirée. There were treat bags with Stace-face stickers (a signature logo of A&O’s owner Stacey Bendet) on them that attendees filled with treats to take home.
As for the drinks, there was sparkling lemonade, as well as Prosecco and rosé for the adults to enjoy. The pale pink hue of the drinks perfectly matched the aesthetic of Carrie’s Chronicles(and were super Instagrammable).
Speaking of “instagrammable,” there were lots of adorable photo spots around the store. Guests posed in front of the colorful clothing racks, a multicolor mosaic wall, and a bright green glitter background. Among the notable attendees was Gianna Ferazi, a teen supermodel and social media influencer, who posed for the camera while holding the Carrie’s Chronicles logo.
Overall, the event was a smashing success; I had a blast contributing fashion advice to guests and helping them pick out their perfect outfit. I am so grateful to Alice + Olivia for giving me the opportunity to host a stylish celebration in their store, and I’m excited to see what Carrie’s Chronicles x Alice + Olivia collabs may occur in the future.
