earlier this month, i attended a VIP shopping event at alice+olivia. this was a fundraising event and 20% of all purchases went to a local non-profit. this was my first time in this store but the merchandise is amazing. it kinda reminded me of kate spade with the colors. i enjoy networking in nyc, but i value events that help others. also, i met angela yee of the breakfast club and got to catch up with claire sulmers of fashionbombdaily.com.
