- Fashion people eat a little, drink a lot
- They wear insane shoes - like, those shoes you think are only in magazines
- They are often extremely young and sporting the blush of youth
- Or they are rather of a certain age, and looking damn fine due to lifestyle and, ahem, treatments
- The models are tremendously, otherworldy tall and strangely long-of-torso
The Holt's / FASHION event was entirely, 100%, almost trashily promotional. Not that I'm complaining; the booze was plentiful (though you had to line up like cattle) and it was good. The catered goodies fell into the "savoury finger food" category and the "hipster candy" category.
Maybe it's just me - and I imagine, Marinka - but my hypochondria does not permit me to touch food en masse like this.
For its questionable cow tow to the tony class, Holt's is a beautiful store, worthy of rich people with money to burn and fashion risks to take. This gorgeous, well-displayed Robert Rodriguez skirt, I can't resist:
There was an interesting scheme to part us from our money. It involved Shu Uemura paste-on eyelashes and a truly remarkable eyelash curler. The next thing I knew, I was shooting video of J's makeover and J was having a makeover - which involved fake eyelashes that look awesome (and strangely real).
But that means she was gifted 3 secret pressies!!, one of which she kindly gave to me!!
Here's how that works: You look, you're loved up by great SA's, you buy, you don't look at the bill too closely except to hand it to the ladies at the Lollipop Wall:
You pick a number (on the lollipop) and then you're handed one of these, that shares the number:
Not bad, huh? I got a rather youthful See by Chloe bracelet. It is hot pink plastic hearts with a couple of charms. M's going to love it.
Finalement, here's a shot of the two of us goofing around:
What? There'd been a lot of booze at this point...
