EVENT RECAP: The Stylist App11:41 AM
Style Saturday Share
with Model Citizen by StyList App
Last weekend, my dear colleauge, fellow blogger and new friend whom I love to bits and pieces! invited me to tag along to a fab event---one, that I had no clue what to expect.
Upon arrival, I immediately knew this was an exclusive event, handing off my coat in exchange for a champagne cocktail kinda gave it away.
The vintage inspired, McCann Advertising and office space was transformed into a private shopping and networking platform for selective peer to peer shopping. We enjoyed light bites, cocktails, manicures and even had mini fashion show as we styled and shared pieces.
Model Citizen by Stylist App allows ladies, like you and me to shop through each other's closets by renting or selling pieces. Women can sift through closets that are of similar height, size, body types and personal style-- think of a well structured and virtual swap-party! --- You can rent by day or for 3 night/4 days and with partnerships with NYC dry cleaners offering discounts for Model Citizen members, items arrive dry cleaned and returned dry cleaned! It gets no better than that, huh ladies?!
StyList App is currently in the start up stage, however with a small but mighty team of stylish media mavens: Danielle James, Founder and Creative Director and Lauren Damarest, head of Marketing and Advertising; I have a feeling Model Citizen by StyList App will morph into the NEW and easiest way of style sharing amongst busy and professional ladies.
We had a great time meeting the ladies and other guest that attended, Chante had great pieces to share that I actually wanted to take home with me and Danielle made sure to get us involved by giving us the opportunity to offer a Style Tip for their style community. check it out below!
