Last Monday I attended a rather fashionable soiree at the Avalon Hotel in Beverly Hills. The lovely Sydne Summer of Think Thru Fashion had set up a fabulous accessory swap party, designed so that all us fabulous LA fashion types (yeah I'm fabulous, what of it? <insert winking face here>) could swap our no longer adored accessories for new ones (or new to us anyway.)
I cheated and brought along some Stylesmith goodies, but it was apparently a good move as they were all swiped pretty darn fast! In exchange… I took home a funky double strap belt, a brand new (boxed) Diesel watch and a stack of bangles….all of which are pictured above! I think I did quite well, non?

The event also featured a Michael Stars 'pop up shop' featuring the designers summer collection at discounted prices and a charity raffle with some amazing prizes, benefiting Mariska Hargitay's 'Joyful Heart Foundation' which aids victims of domestic abuse.

The night was both fun and fruitful, with fabulous cocktails from Blue Angel Vodka, my swap goodies and a fabulous giftbag featuring Dermalogica goodies, American Apparel, NYX Cosmetics and Beautisol.
