No, that is not me.  (I wish!)

That is a real live model — the kind of person who gets paid, on a day to day basis, to be pretty.  But those clothes?  I’m the one who picked out her gorgeous clothes.

To celebrate the launch of their new denim line, Tory Burch had the amazing idea of hosting an event where bloggers could style a model in anything they wanted from the store.  You know what that means?  There was a real, live, person-sized Barbie doll for us to play dress up with.

Sorry, I can’t help it — I am woefully unsophisticated.  I know that styling models is a job — no, not just a job, it’s a whole industry — but to me, it feels like the dress-up game I played as a little kid that never gets old.

So I styled my model in this everyday-glam outfit — the kind of thing I would wear for dinner with friends or a day of shopping.  My favorite thing about Tory Burch is that her clothes are so effortless that you can look like super-chic in the simplest items.  And the chic-est simple-est item of all?  Jeans.  I was given a pair of comfy denim leggings at the event, and I can’t wait to work them into an outfit!

Tory Burch is having a Facebook contest for the best blogger styled look from this event!  Vote for me here, if you’re so inclined. :-)

More pictures below, including some from another event I attended this week — a launch for the new lingerie line from kensie.  The event was gorgeous and their nightwear and super-girly intimates were really lovely (as you can see below)!

Rag and Bone sweater, twenty tank, Theory shorts, Coach bag seen here, J. Crew necklace, Hermes bracelet (on me — everything on the model is Tory Burch!).

    Voted. You can’t go wrong with a classic black and white stripe.

    Transitioning into fashion blogging is one of the coolest things you could have ever done! How fun to play dress up with new Tory Burch! I now have my eyes out for the denim. Great job with the styling. :-)
