At the beginning of May, I attended the #VIPink Brunch at Westfield Mission Valley, where 100% of the proceeds benefitted the Bight Pink organization.  I first posted about the outfit I wore here, so these are pictures from the event itself.  The event featured the following information below (taken from San Diego Style Bloggers post here).  I had a great time seeing my fashionable stylist and blogger friends, and we were treated to wonderful food, tasty drinks and great fashion!

The VIPink Brunch will combine fashion, philanthropy and delicious food and drink in a chic outdoor setting including:

  • Craft cocktails by master mixologists Rumbling Tins
  • Delectable brunch bites by Gordon Biersch
  • Pink donut station by Nomad Donuts
  • A live, interactive fashion show
  • Styling by Fashion Group International
  • Pampering mini beauty treatments
  • Live music
  • Activities, giveaways and more!

Guests will also have the chance to go on the ultimate shopping experience around Westfield Mission Valley, where they’ll receive samples, swag and exclusive discounts.

Finally, I had the pleasure of hanging out with Lily of Curls & Fashion for the bulk of my stay at the #VIPink Brunch.  We walked around to check out the special offers, swag & samples that were available throughout the mall.  Be sure to check out her blog!

The Flowers on the Summer Dress You Wore in Spring

A full post about the event will follow, but I wanted to get in a quick outfit post of the dress I wore to the Bright Pink event a couple of weeks ago at Westfield Mission Valley.  This is my third Voodoo Vixen dress, and all of their dresses make me feel confident and yet very feminine at the same time.  Maybe it’s the retro styling or the flare cut that does the trick, but whatever the case, these types of dresses are so beautiful because they flatter every figure.
