Baubles & Bon Voyage

by Jessica Sturdy on June 26, 2012

Like I finally told you yesterday, I am moving to the east coast! Since I love throwing parties, I figured I would have a little going away get together for Bows & Sequins.

I invited a few girlfriends and my Chicago blogger pals to The Suite Lounge to sip champagne and snack on cupcakes! Kristin Hassan was generous enough to set up a pop-up shop for me so we were able to shop while we socialized.

The space was absolutely amazing. Low lighting, lovely ambiance, gold accents — exactly what I was looking for! Plus, Michelle and the staff were great and so easy to work with! I definitely recommend The Suite Lounge for a smaller event space.

Dress: Erin Fetherston via Perchance // Shoes: Sam Edelman // Bracelets: Kristin Hassan c/0, Sequin c/o, SequinSequin // Two-Tone Watch: Michael Kors // Hair: Dani at Maxine Salon

Here are some snaps from the party:

^ Thanks for this awesome photo, Hallie! ^

^ How awesome are Ellen’s new shoes?! ^

^ My mom came up to Chicago for the party! ^

^ And so did my dad! ^

^ But my dad decided the game was calling his name over the blogger bash… ^

Here are some great recaps of the event:

What a wonderful soiree. Welcome to NYC!!! Would love to meet up once you’re in NYC. Perhaps lunch or sip some champagne on a rooftop?
Safe travels!

So much fun! I agree, the ambiance was great. Still fairly certain I’m suffering from a #cupcakecoma.

Pretty dress, love the bow detail!

Ok, you are too cute. That dress is PERFECT! Also, can you please please do a tutorial on how you did your hair for this event? It looks so classy/chic and different from your other curly hair look so glam!

Thank you!! I actually got my hair done by Dani at Maxine Salon here in Chicago. She curled it with a round brush and blowdryer, no curling iron needed. I definitely can’t do a tutorial, but maybe you can find one online. :)

You look so pretty – that dress is totally you and I love the heels! Sounds like a fun time :)
