I love a good store opening. What I like even better is getting a sneak peek before it opens to the public. That’s what I did last week when I was invited to a press preview for the 37th Bloomingdale’s store to open in the United States. It officially opened on Friday, November 8 in the city of Glendale, California (Los Angeles area).
Before you curvy shoppers get too excited, plus sizes will not be carried at this location. We were told that this department is only successful online and not in-store. We’re going to have to fix that Bloomingdale’s! I know we love to shop!
The two-level, 115,000 square-foot, store does include 48 designer shops. I will admit I was drooling over their shoe, handbag, and beauty departments. I’m going to have to go back and check out the Illamasqua makeup for sure.
For the event, I decided to dress comfy of course! And when all else fails, I wear black.
What I’m Wearing (Left): silk moto jacket from Macy’s (old), Forever 21 tank, Torrid Denim – Dark Wash Ankle Zip Stiletto Jeans, Mossimo Booties (old) from Target, Marc by Marc Jacobs Preppy Nylon Aimee Plaid Sia crossbody bag,
Michael Kors Oversize Golden Stainless Steel Pyramid-Stud Watch, and Torrid necklace.
I’ve come to realize that I wear a lot of denim and I wouldn’t have it any other way. It’s so versatile and amazingly comfortable for me.
Take a look at some of the photos I took at the press preview below.
Disclosure: I received a Bloomindale’s gift bag.
