ALDO A-LIST EVENT
By: Justine Barnes
Aldo on Robson Street partnered with The Style Saver and Verlico for an event on Friday, Nov 21st. The exciting atmosphere during the event was infectious. Guests were treated to colorful drinks, a candy bar and showered with deals on all the merchandise in the store. In addition, a fashion show showcased chic fall/winter looks to the guests.
The Style Saver is a blog belonging to Elizabeth Manuntag, which she started up when she began thrifting and consignment store shopping in her attempts to save money on fashion. She partnered with Aldo for this event because she has a history of working for the company and continues to style her outfits with Aldo shoes and Accessories. A few of her favorite consignment and thrift stores are Hunter and Hare, Mine & Yours, Turnabout and Value Village. Elizabeth will continue to thrift and consignment shop to encourage a sustainable lifestyle and plans to travel and explore the sustainable culture in other cities, connecting with other bloggers and insiders who have similar passions.

Verlico is a website that offers an amazing way to discover new bloggers and brands and to view a variety of different styles and inspirational outfits. It is a social sharing platform that enables us to search and keep track of our friends, bloggers and brands. Fashion folk are able to upload their own looks and tag the designers or direct product links through their outfit, making shopping for viewers that little bit easier.
Overall, a fabulous event to attend and enjoy the company of like-minded fashion individuals. I have a feeling this will be an event that will continue to be held, seeing how successful it was.
