GUESS and Paul Mitchell VIP Shopping Event

Two nights ago, 4/4/11, I went to the GUESS and Paul Mitchell event at the Guess by Marciano store at Americana in Glendale. It was an invite only sip and shop event that I was happy to go to. First of all, I love the location. Americana in Glendale is a newer outdoor mall across from the Glendale Galleria. The parking is always good and it’s just a great space over there

Two nights ago, 4/4/11, I went to the GUESS and Paul Mitchell event at the Guess by Marciano store at Americana in Glendale. It was an invite only sip and shop event that I was happy to go to. First of all, I love the location. Americana in Glendale is a newer outdoor mall across from the Glendale Galleria. The parking is always good and it’s just a great space over there. Secondly, I’m a long time fan of GUESS. I have a few pair’s of GUESS shoes and a few purses, and I have bought Cherelle and Forrest (my sister and brother) items over the years. Thirdly, who doesn’t like free champagne?

At the door was a lady checking names off the list, and as soon as you step in, there’s a guy with a plate of champagne and a few smiling ladies waiting to help you. The DJ is spinning, but not too loudly. He was doing a good job with a nice mix to get you in the shopping mood. Paul Mitchell had a booth with about 5 people ready to make you beautiful (I passed…I just got my hair done and Tanyea, my hairstylist/friend, would not like someone else in my hair). There was also a makeup station, but I had just freshened up my own makeup.

As I was walking around, sipping my champagne, I was approached with a plate of a bit of beef with a delicious sauce on a small piece of sourdough bread. It was really good. A few minutes later, there was a chocolate brownie bite plate that, as the guy told me, I was the first person to say no to. I’m trying not to eat too many sweets, too much fat, or too much sodium. Trying to loose some weight and be a little healthier.

Anyway, I feel I should buy something and I had my eye on a peach slouchy shirt…just perfect for this spring. But, they did not have my size. Boo :(  So, I settle on a cobalt blue (one of my favorite colors right now) long shirt with a pocket square. It matches my blue shoes and pants and other shirts. lol

After my purchase, or with my purchase, I received a cute black GUESS by Marciano vinyl bag that contained: A spring/summer 2012 GUESS by Marciano lookbook, a travel size of Paul Mitchell smoothing serum (which instantly works), a gold medium sized kind of clutch/wallet that has zippers to hold items in, a Girlactik Beauty black eyeliner, a gold luggage tag (which is going to come in handy…especially when I replace my lilac luggage), and a mystery shopping bonus card that could be worth between $20-$500 (and only can be used between April 12-May 9, 2012).

I’m really glad I stopped by. Everyone was very nice and had pleasant smiles on their faces. I look forward to more GUESS events.
