Fashion's Night Out 2011: Saks Fifth Avenue!

Morning Beautifuls!  Prepare yourself for a very picture heavy post!  It's picture-heavy for a reason because I def wanna share w/ you all the excitement that happened for FNO at Saks w/ having an amazing opportunity to participate in a Stylelist event, styling mannequins!  Big 'Thank You' to Saks and Stylelist for having me!! :)  And this surreal experience wouldn't have been possible without all of you -- thank you so much for being here along this ride w/ me as my blog continues to grow, it has meant so much to have you all as amazing supportive readers <3.
A week before this, I got to visit Saks and pull any kind of clothing/accessories from every floor!  Imagine how excited I was lol.  For mannequin #1: Vince fur scarf, Gucci belt, Theory leather jacket, Helmut Lang sweater, Alice+Olivia dress, Chloe bag.  I was thinking of SF when creating my looks: all layering for fall..and unpredictable weather :p.
On mannequin #2: Burberry cable knit sweater, Prada belt, YSL purse, T by Alexander Wang velvet maxi skirt.
Beeest part of the night was I got to meet some of my readers!!  They were thee sweetest and cutest ever:  Miianne from MiianneFashionDaily and Danielle from Things She Made.  Wish I got to see more of you!  really just brightened my day to see everyone in-person! :)
During pulling clothes, my heart fluttered as I walked to the accessories section..Chloe and YSL stole my heart lol (of course, my faves).
The bubbly ;p.
My mom, auntie, cousin, and family came to support.  Her being one of my important fashion idols, of course needed her to be there :).
D&G free makeovers were done during the event!  My cousin's gf came too, super sweet. :)
This is the guy behind all the amazin photography on my blog, my boyfriend-turned-photog :p. <3
Lucky to have thee sweetest roomie! :)
Beeeautiful stylish blogger friends galore came to the event.  The lovely Jamie from blog redhead.
Chanda from PancakeSTACKER looking extra cute! :)
Finally got to meet the beautiful pair of bloggers, Whit (left) & Britt (right) from
Aaand, got to finally meet another gorgeous pair of bloggers, Whitney and Mallory from Whitwatwear.
My Berk blogger girls: Anisa from Young and Seamless, Sherrie from Closethound, Deanna from A California Dreamer.
to end the night, Jamie had a crush on a guy mannequin that had style so much like Ryan Gosling lol ;p
Just wanted to say once more, thank you so much lovelies for your support since Day 1 or whenever you started to read my blog :), Inspirafashion.  My blog's anniversary is coming up sooon!  And will run a personal giveaway with an item I will find just for you all!  Stay tuned lovelies, keep inspiring and have an amaazin weekend! :)

I've said this before: You TOTALLY should have won, Kathleen. Loved your mannequins - I would wear the outfit w/ the Vince fur scarf in a millisecond (LOVE the Chloe bag). You looked totally beautiful that night, love :) And I got to meet Momma Murillo very briefly!! I love meeting people's moms, I don't know why - maybe it's cuz I like introducing my own mommy to everyone I know.
