Get free personal styling this weekend at Westfield Brandon
We all need a little help from time to time, don't we? How many times have you walked out of your house in last night's PJ bottoms, wondering if one of your "friends" is lurking around the corner with a What Not To Wear cameraman? If that sounds like you, check out this cool event at Westfield Brandon Friday and Saturday.
It's the National Westfield Style Tour, and it's making it's first stop here in our backyard. We're a little bummed, though, because it appears our mall's event is one of the few that won't be graced by the all holy Stacy London (left) from What Not To Wear. Sadness.
Anyway, it's still cool. Produced by IMG (the folks who produce of New York’s highfalutin Fashion Week), the Westfield Style Tour is a two-day FREE fashion bonanza. FREE. Did you hear? FREE. Here's how it goes:
When you get to the mall, you hang out in a special lounge and read Westfield's WStyle magazine, which details fall trends and offers tips from Stacy London. Then, you get a free fashion consultation with a professional wardrobe stylist. They'll pull stuff from the mall stores to suggest -- Bebe, White House/Black Market, Metropark, G by Guess, Forever 21, Express and Buckle.
After that, you get a free makeup consultation at the Beauty Bar. There will be samples (WE LOVE SAMPLES) and demonstrations from Bare Escentuals, The Body Shop, MAC, Clinique and Chanel. You can also enter to win a trip to the 2011 Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in New York City or a $2,500 Westfield shopping spree.
I can think of worse ways to spend the weekend. But be warned -- the mall is a business that wants you to BUY, obviously. Although it's free, we suggest packing a little spending cash if you got it. Don't say we didn't warn you.
