LA Fashion Bloggers Springs Into YMI

Wednesday, March 6, 2013

I threw my first party in third grade. At the time, I was obsessed with Little Caesars and wholeheartedly believed my friends were equally enamored. So I ordered ten large pizzas, one for each guest and nothing else. In my defense, I'd only been in America for a year and had never actually been to a real party so my perspective was nonexistent. Midway through the event, lethargic and lactose intolerant eight year olds lay slumped on the floor, too sleepy and bloated to partake in party activities. How tragic! Since then, I've shunned Little Caesar's from my life (the real tragedy) and have had to quell sporadic cravings for their doughy crust and mystery cheese.

A few weeks ago, I partnered with YMI Jeans and invited seven of my LA fashion blogger friends for an afternoon of fashion, sweets, and champagne. This was no pizza party. We popped champagne, nibbled on candy and macarons, and played dress up in fab finds from YMI Jeans's spring collection.  Each of the girls harness an unique personal style so it was an absolute treat to see how they each styled their YMI.  The entire party was documented by an amazing video crew and I'm so excited to share our Spring Into YMI LA fashion blogger video with you! 

If you live in or around the LA area, then you must enter the Spring Into YMI contest. Grand Prize is lunch with LA bloggers, a styling session, a personal photo shoot, and a fabulous YMI gift bag.  Here are my outfits featured in the video.

Wow! I've come so far from the days of stringy cheese and zesty marinara. What a fabulous day with a fabulous group of girls. For behind the scenes look on the making of the video, follow YMI on twitter and instagram!
