Call it kismet or fate, but I was fortunate enough to be invited to Pike and Rose's Blogger Open House. Perfect timing to pick up some new outfits for my Paris trip coming up.
Pike and Rose provided an opportunity for local bloggers to connect and to experience all of what Pike and Rose has to offer and boy was it a lot!
We began the event at Seasons Olive Oil & Vinegar. This local mom and pop chain has two locations in Maryland and another two locations in Pennsylvania. This store is so much more than just buying some cooking oils. They offer high quality products such as infused olives, vinegars, salts, spices and other fun accessories such as olive oil plates. Each item they carry is personally chosen.
I love the personal touches throughout the store and they even offer free recipe cards corresponding to their products and I can vouch those recipe cards are legit. Most of the delicious sampling bites could be found in their recipe cards.
We were also given $200 worth of gift cards to the Pike and Rose stores of our choice. With so many great stores to choose from, I greedily chose to allocate all of my $200 to my one of my favorite store on earth, Francesca's!
Ahhhh Francesca's, my shopping weak spot. One of the reasons why I love this store so much is because their clothes are reasonably priced and they have such a good selection of chic clothes. This isn't Forever 21 with miles and miles of clothes to choose from, but every piece offered at Francesca's is chosen with care and are stylish as hell! Most of the clothing pieces in the store range from $54.99 and under with a couple big pieces like jackets and purses with prices of $89.99 and up.
I get so much fashion inspiration from just walking around the store. Francesca's had a little bit of everything. They have knit knacks and gadgets, clothes, shoes, jewelry and accessories. Francesca's is the perfect place to pick up thoughtful presents for your girlfriends for birthdays, engagements, bachlorettes, and weddings.
I picked up some great versatile pieces that would be perfect on my Paris trip. I wore my green Francesca's tank to the Effiel tower and felt like I fit right in with the Parisian style. Thanks Pike & Rose for the amazing opportunity and for the outfits that helped me create beautiful memories in Paris!
