So even after working for 10 hours since 7 AM and only having had 2 hours of sleep (3:30 AM to 5:30 AM!!) I still managed to stay wide awake and had tons of fun at my very first private LV event!!! I could go on pages about it...so I'm summarizing everything: - met blushingbaby, Vista, Jazzie (although I've seen Jazzie before at LV); we had tons of fun looking at stuff together! - oh myyyy were the appetizers GOOD. The champagne was good too. Since I didn't have a real meal at all today I had only had two glasses...the chocolate truffles were my favourite!! - lots of SS07 bags: LOVE (1) totes, patchwork denim, olympe, etc...saw most of these in Hong Kong already so no surprise but it's good to see them here in Calgary! - Amarante is GORGEOUS!!! I love it!!! Fingerprints do show up REALLY easily and I was handling the French Purse VERY carefully...but I'd rather worry about fingerprints than colour transfer. This colour gets a from me! I think I'm definitely going to try to get a French Purse in this colour. The colour does kind of look like coca cola in LV lighting! - Sunset Boulevard...speechless!! It is SO pretty IRL and not as small as I anticipated. It has 6 (I think?) CC slots, a zip pocket, and a pretty wide interior. It fit Jazzie's super bulky cell phone no problem and I think it still had room for lip gloss, compact, cash, cards, cles, etc...Jazzie...I'll let you share your news regarding this I'm definitely getting this later on this year when the winter parties are coming up. I have no use for this now but will later on! I think amarante would be great, I'm scared of colour transfer for the perle - saw Summit Drive but not the other popincourt-like one (not sure of name??) Still not a fan of it. - I loveeee the amarante inclusion...dark but not as dark as the vernis version. I'm definitely getting an inclusion PM bracelet and maybe the barrette GM too. - no Love 2 totes preview but manager still is quoting the 15th as the release date. I'm supposed to call that day to see if they're in! - lots of ladies going crazy with purchases! - Other items showcased: new MC bags, new epi Bourget bags, Ivoire, sunglasses available (but I didn't see any), Neverfull, and some other things... - my RAOK buddy surprised me by having the manager giving me this at the very beginning: Again, thank you SO MUCH...once I buy something with it, I will post here what the GC went towards...it was sooo sweet of you!!!! And last of all...the staff was so friendly, and the manager's LV coat was sooooo nice!!! I'm not sure what it's called, but it's grey, fuzzy and has "embossed" mini LV monogram print. Any guys know what it's called? Jazzie? blushingbaby?? Jazzie asked him, "Can I pet you??"
