#ShinePRxKateSpade: A Shopping Soiree

Melina Morry, The Lady-like Leopard. Shine PR. Kate Spade New York. Yorkville.

Kate Spade, marshmallows, cupcakes, bacon wrapped watermelon, boxed water in champagne glasses – this is just all part of a typical Thursday night for a fashion blogger! Or at least for Veronica of (the) VB Chic, Leopard Cub and myself. We all got ready together and then ventured out to Yorkville for a shopping soiree put on by Shine PR.

We arrived to a gorgeous photo wall across the alleyway from the Kate Spade boutique that fit all of our photo taking needs (apparently the girls at Shine had gotten creative and made it themselves!). We had a bit of a photo op out there while Leopard Cub enjoyed a gourmet popsicle that we had gotten from The Gap on our walk over.

There areΒ so many gorgeous garments, shoes and bags this season at Kate Spade! I could have bought the whole store – if only my credit card would let me. I found a pair of glittery gold trimmed sunglasses that I fell in love with and quite a few (too many) pairs of heels that were ready to buckle themselves to my feet and saunterΒ out of there.

We had a fabulous time mingling with the stylish girls of Kate Spade and Shine PR and trying out the delicious hors d’oeuvres and taking in all the lady-like outfits. This was my kind of evening! We even met another blogger named Eleni of Bijuleni (she was really sweet and you should definitely check out her blog).

One especially delicious – not to mention adorable – part of the evening was the marshmallow bar by a Toronto company called I Love Puffy Love. They were so cute! They had three different flavours of marshmallows (they actually have a lot more on their website) that youΒ put in these sweet little polka dot boxes and topped with chocolate or rum sauce and sprinkled with graham crackers, shredded coconut, strawberries, etc.

Here are more photos from this lovely evening (below)! Thanks to Shine PR for having us and for giving us those fabulous gift bags – Leopard Cub is still raving that she got to take one home all of her own! You guys definitely made her night.
