J.Crew Aficionada Private Shopping Event Recap

A big thanks to all of you who joined us for the 2nd J.Crew Aficionada Private Shopping Session! The event, held in J.Crew Tysons Galleria, drew many of the region's best-dressed girls (and boys). With over 60 RSVPs on evite, the store buzzed with lucky shoppers eager to get their hands on fall's newest pieces. Everyone shopped till they dropped. The best part? We received a 20% discount on all the hottest fall items!

A big shout out and thank you to Val and the Tysons Galleria store for hosting us for this wonderful event and even provided much-needed breakfast treats!

If you were one of the lucky shoppers who attended, please send me your photos to contact@3pennyprincess.com or provide a link to your blog post covering the shopping event. Here are my (only 2) photos:

Oh, that is so sweet...I love it...the first photo kind of makes me wistful for those shoes I am wearing, they are so pretty and comfy! (Not the skirt so much...that skirt was hard to wear...)

Oh, I also loved that you called Rex a little aficianado. Ahhh...

Good seeing you yesterday! You always look so nice when I see you!

Hey, 3PP! I am just beginning to get back into the groove and easing myself back into blogland, and I love your recap! Thanks for posting your photos. :) It was wonderful to see everybody again after so long (even if it WAS for such a short time)!

You and Dina looked fierce in your skirt and blouse combos - so chic! And of course, everybody was rockin' the 'Crew! ;)

Anon at 10:36 am: No fear, I saw your post. Thank you for the compliment. Yes, I bought the top, necklace, and headband, and I purchased two incredibly fierce pencil skirts. The skirt I am wearing in the picture looked okay, but (and you can't tell this from the photo) from the side the gathered detail on the front of the skirt pooched out and made me look like I had a cute little pregnant tummy (so not a flattering look with a pencil skirt). I do own a tulip skirt from Ann Taylor Loft that is very similar, so that will be my go to instead of this tortoise print.

Those shoes, though? TDF. I have to get them...on sale, though...I think they are near 250 not on sale, gulp! :)

yogagirl - sorry for the late reply! Thank you for the compliments! Yes, I am wearing the Frances ruffled blouse in deep rose. Amazing color and it's the first blouse I've really liked since the seasonal ruffled blouses of the past year-and-a-half.
