Gilt City Miami Warehouse Event Recap

If you watched my video that I posted yesterday merging a magnetic nail tutorial and a briefing on the Gilt City Miami warehouse event, then the following post will fit appropriately.  As I mentioned, I recently went to the Gilt City event here in Miami where invited guests were given the opportunity to peruse various high end designer items at a fraction of their original prices.  Gilt City is a membership only online store where you can purchase some quality pieces for a discount.  What made the warehouse event so unique was that it allowed you to actually walk in and try on the items before you purchase them, in addition to the extra price reduction made especially for the event.

I fell in love with many of the Valentino, Emilio Pucci, Marni and Missoni items.  Cocktails were provided in addition to sponsored products by PopChips, Vita Coco Coconut Water, KIND bars (LOVE these) and a live DJ was spinning in the upper area of the warehouse.  The lower portion had all of the clothing and home decor items while the upper section housed the shoe selection for men and women.

Unfortunately, most of the shoes were selected once I made it up there.  Imagine this if you will...I'm walking in heels, holding a 25lb baby on my hip, browsing the selection of clothes with my other hand and attempting to take photos with my camera for the blog.  Needless to say, it was quite the charade for me.  Overall, it was a great event filled with some exceptional designer pieces.  If there is a Gilt City event in your area, I suggest attending.  Check out my photo diary from the event below.
