My Date With Tous

Last Thursday, I was invited to spend the day with the Miami blogger crew and Tous. In what may be the best Thursday ever, I boarded a yacht at 9 a.m. at the Epic Marina, was handed a mimosa, tried on jewelry and bags, had a day-long chat fest with the girls, was made over by a glam squad and enjoyed a dinner overlooking the Miami skyline. Here, a week later, is my ultimate throwback Thursday post: My date with Tous.

 

9 a.m. and we’re getting ready to board the Y Charter Miami yacht. That’s me with the day’s cast of fashionable characters: Erika Thomas of Blah Blah BlondeKelly Saks of Kelly’s KlosetHaya Tetroashvili of Good Good Gorgeous, Kristin Clark of Living in Color Print and Daniela Ramirez of Nany’s Coset.

We’re on a boat!

The selfie situation—as you can only imagine with a group of fashion bloggers—was Out.Of.Control. My sincerest apologies for the Instagram-a-ton of pics that particular Thursday. Let’s just say #MiamiLovesTous was the catch phrase of the day.

Not a bad way to kick off the middle of the week, let me tell you.

We cruised from Epic Miami to Aventura Mall, where Tous was throwing an in-store bash hosted by none other than—you guessed it—us.

Limo selfie situation (I told you so).

If you ever want to stop mall traffic dead in its tracks, I highly suggest hopping out of a limo and walking in with a pack of bloggers, a photographer and cameraman in tow.

Well, hello, Tous heart-shaped bag. Want you, need you, need you, want you.

Paparazzi situation.

After trying on everything in the store, it was back to the boat and then off to Epic Miami for operation beauty suite before dinner.

How embarrassing, Kristin and I are wearing the same thing.

What does it take for six fashion bloggers to get ready for dinner: A suite at Epic, a glam squad and ever-flowing bubbly.

After decking myself out in the Motif necklace, it was off to Area 31.

For dinner—and lots of laughs. Erika is beyond hilarious. I laughed until I cried. I think this pic sums up my feelings for the day: I had a blast. It was great getting to know everyone even better.

Cheers to the best Thursday ever.
