Amber's {Blog Event} Notebook: Banana After 5 Recap

On Thursday I was honored to co host the banana republic after 5 event held at the flagship San Francisco store along with Laura of On The Racks and Aimee of Song of Style. Banana did a fabulous transforming the vibe of the store to a summer party atmosphere. Complete with a ping pong table and sangria, a chance to win a whirlwind trip to West Hollywood was also on the line. Aimee, Laura and I had a blast greeting costumers, sharing our favorite pieces and enjoying the sangria, ping pong and amazing appetizers. Bloggers like Mission Closet, Like Fresh Laundry, ProFreshStyle, Jennie Goes West, Thrift eye and J'adore Couture and came out to show us support {it was SO nice to see you all!}. And some like Jeanne even took advantage of the 25% off that was offered {she picked up the pants version of these foldover shorts -that I love!}.
Thanks again to the Banana Team for asking me to be a part of the fabulous even -- I had an amazing time!
