Spring Bling & Pamper Me Party Photos

By: Erin.. (I'm on the right :)

The only way to explain the day was...
"I LOVE my life!"
If you didn't make it to The Spring Bling
and Pamper Me Party

at the Renaissance SportClub
in Aliso Viejo,
putting it mildly

We were pampered up, down, right, left and sideways before we even stepped in the door! Red carpet entry, photos by 944 Magazine, graham cracker rimmed "Coco Puff" martinis, head boppin' beats, sun kissed models walking around in the latest fashion trends, shoes and hair styles, waiters serving chilled champagne, baseball size white chocolate dipped strawberries and exquisite orchid and rose floral arrangements from Elegant by Design florist dazzled my eyes and taste buds at this ultra stylish event.

Talk about coordinated and designed for the ultimate sensory experience. If the party were a car, it would be a super charged Boutiquing V-12 with chrome rims and leather seats! Silk tops and dresses from Elle H, statement jewelry from The Passionate Collector, sexy reversible aprons from Kitchen Couture (let them turn your ugly bridesmaid dresses into adorable aprons), one of a kind maxi dresses from The Black Flamingo, stylish workout gear from Powder Blue Productions, affordable tanks from Angels N' Vixens and stunning bandeau and gold ring swimsuits by Kai La Mare were just a few of the amazing vendors that captivated our attention for hours.

Thank you, Thank You, THANK YOU to Renaissance SportClub Marketing Director Amanda Thomas and Christy Pacella, owner of The Black Flamingo Boutique (famous for styling the "Laguna Beach" TV show icons and "The Real Housewives of OC"). These two women created an esthetically gorgeous environment and a most memorable day. Any event these two put their hands on... I will be there with no less than 10 friends!

    I too attended this fabulous event and Erin; you hit the nail on the head! The champagne flowing and the fashion glowing... this was a can't miss on a perfect Sunday afternoon. And the icing on the cake... fabulous collections with budget friendly pricing!!! My girls and I all walked... no strutted away with the best of the best- a wedding shower present of an adorable golden shimmering apron from Kitchen Couture, a to die for ring by the visionaries of The Passionate Collector, a heavenly silk hand- made number by Hale’ Bob, plus a little bubbly in my belly... what more can a gal want!!! Thanks to you ladies and your fashionista's paradise of a blog, I had the best time I've had in months. I look forward to reading more from you soon!

  2. I had the pleasure of meeting you both and you are just dolls! This was such a great event - a shopper's paradise! The chocolate dipped berries were just as beautiful as the stylish clothing that adorned the racks of the fashionable boutiques. Free flowing champagne, "Coco Puff" martinis, jewelry, handbags, dresses, gift bags, and goodies oh my! Being a "girl" has never been so much fun. Unfortunately as a vendor I didn't get to totally enjoy the experience, but being a part of this event was well worth it. I had fun watching everyone have a ball (it was like kids in a candy store) and made great networking connections. I look forward to hearing about more events and boutique ratings to come. Cheers ladies!

  5. Christy Pacella, owner of The Black Flamingo and Black Feather Productions is an event GENIUS! This woman knows how to throw a party that people talk about for days! She has the ability to turn any room into a flawless environment oozing with beauty and flavor (just like her shop in Laguna)! She has the connections, memorable personality and business savvy to attract the perfect clients for any niche market.
