thanks to Rachael for taking my pictures

As an addition to St. Louis Fashion Week, Saks invited a group of local bloggers to their store to have breakfast and have our makeup done. Ummm yeah!

We arrived and were given a tour of the makeup department and provided with some really neat facts about the store which I don't remember any of because, well, I was too focused on trying to keep the drool in my mouth. Their makeup department is ah-mazing!...and their make up artists are pretty amazing too. We each were paired up with a make up artist to be made up and walked away feeling beautiful! I recommend making a trip to the makeup department at Saks to have your makeup done and for some eye candy - Chanel's set up is a piece of art.  And right now it's beauty week at Saks and are are offering a gift with purchase which include a fabulous tote bag filled with really great samples.

In addition, Saks is gearing up for the upcoming local exhibit at the World Chess Hall of Fame titled    "A Queen Within: Adorned Archetypes, Fashion and Chess." This exhibit is being set up to explore the archetypes of a queen, including, you guessed it, Queen Alexander McQueen. Yowza!

To appropriately outfit viewers of this exhibit in town, Saks set up a special room, for a limited time, to carry and sell fabulous designer handbags and shoes by Celine, Nicholas Kirkwood and, of course, Alexander McQueen to name a few. A few of us bloggers were lucky enough to walk through this gem. Behold...

oh hello...

Thank you so much to Saks for inviting me to take part in this event. You sure know how to make a girl feel special!
