Yes folks, that's how you party! Couture USA's Style Social event---a fun night of glitz and fashion---brought out the stylish crowd, who came out for the night to sip, shop and party. Held at our boutique in Tampa, the event infused a dose of glam to Tampa's local fashion scene as couture-obsessed guests came in full force to share laughter and conversations over hors d'oeuvres and drinks. The drink of choice? Champagne and white wine, of course!
The Style Social event kicked off at exactly 6:30 pm, and guests trickled in throughout the night. By 7 pm, it was already a packed house, to say the least, and felt like a date night with friends more than a style event as Couture USA regulars who are local to the Tampa area warmly greeted each other like old friends recently reunited. New guests, on the other hand, enjoyed the company of other fashion-lovers and received a warm welcome by the Couture USA team who were hard at work throughout the night. And like any good party host would, Couture USA
Founder Catherine Ansel officially welcomed guests and was on-site to help those needing style or product recommendations.
So how exactly do you kick a glam party up a notch? Get guests to strike a pose in front of a vogue photo booth! Against a backdrop of glittering silver, guests had a blast as they posed while dressed up in their favorite props---a choice of oh-so-French beret, oversized Chanel sunglasses, Louis Vuitton and Chanel totes and scarves and fun stick signs---and shared their favorite photos on social media. Bonus points to those who tagged @coutureusa as it gave them a raffle ticket to win any of the three Chanel sunglasses and Louis Vuitton Neverfull tote! Those who purchased a product (Who wouldn't? Everything in-store was 10 percent off for that night only!) were also automatically entered for the much-anticipated raffle drawing. Expectedly, the giveaway was one of the highlights of the night!
WHO'S LUCKY TONIGHT? Tampa blogger Lucille Salomon draws the name of one of Couture USA's lucky winners.
