Styling at the 2b Store in Beverly Hills

Thursday, October 27, 2011

I know it seems like my fashion calendar has revolved around attending fashion shows for the past month. And honestly, it kind of has! But in between New York Fashion Week and Los Angeles Fashion Week, I got the fortuitous opportunity to attend a super fun fashion styling event. I was invited by the lovely 2b team for some fun girl talk and a friendly session of mannequin styling with my fabulous Two Point Oh! LA girls. 2b, which is Bebe's diffusion brand, is focused on providing affordable and flirty fashion through their stand-alone retail stores. If Bebe is Kim Kardashian (who once collaborated with the brand) then 2b is Kylie and Kendall Jenner, her equally fashion savvy younger sisters. With almost 40 retail locations nationwide, 2b is steadily becoming a go-to brand for budget conscious fashionistas.

Lunch at The Farm of Beverly Hills. What do fashion bloggers eat? Soup and salad. So we have room for the sweet treats! We're all about calorie budgeting.

Each of the bloggers were given a mannequin to style with clothes, accessories and shoes from the 2b store. Naked now, fashionably dressed later!

Attentively listening to Linda, 2b's President give us a company overview.

"Shopping" the store for our mannequins!

The photographer captured me in a pensive styling state. Why must a double chin emerge when I'm thinking and concentrating on something?

All dressed and ready to be displayed! Right when I stepped into the store, the dark fuschia dress adorned with rosettes caught my eye. It reminded me of the highly coveted H&M red rosette dress from their Garden Collection. I layered the dress with a fun faux fur jacket and a fedora for some downtown edge.
