Have you been checking in on the Ford Fiesta Movement this month? The agents were given a "style" theme for October and they have been on some really fun adventures! Check out one of my favorites below...
Two weeks ago, the girls and I drove up to New York City for our own Style Adventure. We attended a two day fashion event called petitePARADE and were crazy excited! I went up with the girls solo. I was feeling brave. Scott stayed home to work on our kitchen DIY, so it was a full out girls weekend. We went out to lunch, walked the city and spent a few hours at the show. The girls were even feeling inspired by the shows and held their own show outside!
Every adventure has is highs and lows and we had our fair share of both. In the end, I'm happy we went and that I was able to have this experience with Maya + Senna. It was neat to expose them to this world of fashion, but would I do it again? If things were a little different... absolutely.
1. FIRST TIMERS.
We attended a fashion show! How neat is that? The clothing was beautiful and interesting. The styling... was awesome.
2. MEET + GREET.
Met up with Sharim + Bre from PanacheBox and they were sweet, beautiful and just as lovely as we knew they'd be!
3. FRONT ROW EXPERIENCE.
We sat in the front row of the JC Penney Show and the girls were beside themselves! The brief time we were in those seats, watching the girls glow in excitement and listening to their comments on the pieces as they walked right in front of them was.... AMAZING.
4. MILK POP!
We attended our first Milk Pop workshop where the girls decorated a pair of hightop Converse. Love them!
5. STAR STRUCK.
We saw Heidi Klum + Sean Combs (P.Diddy) in person.. within 2 feet. You may not think it's a big deal. I never thought I could get star struck, but it happened. I got chills and the girls love America's Got Talent so seeing Heidi was exciting to them!
1. WAIT TIME.
The first show we attended was the Swarovski Showcase, which was gorgeous but since we're not celebrities or sponsors we waited a long LONG time to get in and sit. The girls and other kids were cranky, tired and well... unhappy. I was having a hard time keeping my cool, Maya was crying at times. But they were troopers in the end.
Unless you're lucky enough to have a front row or second row seat, then be prepared to hold your kids up to see. We were encouraged to bring the girls and that's what made it a trip I wanted to go on. But they're small, it's over crowded and the seating is all on one level. They could only see when standing on their seats, but that wasn't easy to maintain.
3. KID FRIENDLY?
It may be in true fashion "fashion" to be running late, but when it involves kids it's tough. There's nothing to do in the waiting space. It was about kids, included kids, but unfortunately it didn't seem that the kids attending were taken into consideration. The Milk Pop workshop on Sunday was great! But it was in the showroom and we were rushed away to leave the room so they could set up for the next show. Would've been more profitable if it was in the waiting space...
All in all, it was a great weekend with my girls! We made memories and that's what's most important to us. Stay tuned... I'll be sharing our favorite looks from the show in an upcoming post!
