Anthropologie + BHLDN at Chestnut Hill

Guess what? I got to attend the Boston area BHLDN opening event at Anthropologie last month! AHHHH! I've been a huge fan of BHLDN since they launched (see here). But being a tactile person, I really wanted to be able to touch their products. Well, now I can!!

Anyways, I'll let the pictures do the talking.

Window display from the inside.
Champagne and sweets were served. 

The treats were delicious! So. Good.
Onto the BHLDN section. It's tucked away in the back corner of the Anthropologie.
Pretties on display.
The dressing room.
Guests can sit in the Astrid Settee while the bride-to-be tries on dresses.
The gowns.

Mercury and milk glass, oh my.
So pretty! I wouldn't mind having this in my home for a dessert station.
One side of the runway (it was 'y' shaped).
I believe this is the Anthropologie store manager kicking things off.
The BHLDN manager, I think.
Fashion show!

I had arrived early enough to be able to scout out a great position for taking photos as I wanted to give a full report to my bride-to-be friend who couldn't make it. Somehow the 'media' gallery' formed around me. Guess I picked a great spot. I tried taking photos with my dSLR, but the models moved with quickly and without my external flash, my camera and I had no chance. Luckily, I was able to take video on my phone. Sorry for the bumpy video, the woman to my left kept elbowing me every time she brought her big camera up to her eye.

I had a blast at this #AnthroEvent and can't wait for the next one. Oh yes, I get to participate in their birthday event next month. I don't know that I'll have time to take pictures. I might be a little busy (aka CRAZY) buying up the store. Credit card, you better be ready, because you are coming to the party.
