Hey Material Girls!
Great to meet you, I’m Vanessa, the winner of the “Live Like a Material Girl Sweepstakes! It’s funny because you never think you would be chosen to win a sweepstakes, but it DOES happen! I saw the sweepstakes on facebook and just figured I would enter (despite the fact I never win anything!) About a week later, I got an e-mail from one of the team members from Material Girl. I thought it was a joke because it sounded WAY too good to be true…but after speaking with Material Girl on the phone reality sunk in! I REALLY had won and I along with a guest was going to NYC to live like a Material Girl for the weekend!
When I arrived in NYC, a personal driver was waiting for my guest and I to take us to the Empire Hotel, which was just stunning!
My guest and I spent the evening relaxing around the hotel (There is a pool and restaurants and incredible city views!!!) and I had a big day of shopping ahead of me in the morning!
When it came time to go on my shopping spree, I met up with 3 Material Girl stylists at Macy’s. They were so nice and fun to be around. They helped me pick out lots of different outfits and gave me their honest opinions. There were so many things I loved from the Material Girl Collection; it was hard to narrow down to my top choices. With the help of all the Material Girl fans I was able to choose the right outfit for the Nylon party and a couple of others just for fun!!!
After the shopping spree my guest and I explored the streets of NYC and took lots of pictures. We even went to a comedy show!!!
Soon enough it was time to get ready for the Nylon Music Issue Party, hosted by Florence & the Machine! The party was at a lounge called Mr H at the Mondrian Soho which was really cute! It was such a blast and it was an experience I will never forget. I got to go into the VIP gifting suite and get my picture taken in front of the step & repeat! I am so lucky to have been the one chosen! Thank you MG!
