We’re just one day away from Fashion’s Night Out! I’ll be celebrating at the King of Prussia Mall, where many stores will be participating by offering great deals while showing off fall’s latest fashions. The fun begins at 6pm – there will even be a faux photo shoot! Come visit me at the Blogger Lounge, or follow me on Twitter and Instagram, @MeganStecher. Get ready to shop til you drop! Happy Fashion’s Night Out!
Last week I got to interview one of the biggest stars out there, not to mention People’s “Sexiest Man Alive,” Bradley Cooper!!!! I’m a huge fan, and needless to say, this was a DREAM COME TRUE! Check out my red carpet in interview with him at the Philadelphia premiere of “The Words.”
On Tuesday night I attended the Blogger Preview Night at King of Prussia Mall and got a great preview of new fall fashions at the fab stores there. After cupcakes, champagne and some freebies, I was loving life! Here are some of the fab fall fashions I previewed, and remember; only six days until FASHION’S NIGHT OUT! I will be attending FNO at the King of Prussia Mall and I hope to see you all there!
Vera Bradley gave us these cute candy bar cupcakes!
Like the boho feel of this new print called “Provencal”? It’s new, along with two more prints and available now for the Vera fan ladies!
I was so excited to stop at Wolford. They are THE authority in hosiery and tights. We got to see new stuff for fall, including these studded stockings! So very Fifty Shades…loved them!
This was my favorite – finding out which stockings our favorite celebs/icons are always rocking! From left to right, their faves below: Katy Perry, Beyonce, Kate Middleton and Madonna. These are the secret to celeb-worthy legs!
Off to Tumi! They are the ultimate in luggage, and anybody who’s anybody has some nice Tumi luggage. ( I don’t, however, I aspire to Tumi someday!) You can see in the pretty pieces below how they used falls’ hottest color trend, plums & burgundies, in their collections:
But the best was this collection, Dror for Tumi. Dror is an amazing architect, who designed each piece in this collection to be multi-functional. Every bag turns into something completely different, so there’s no need for multiple bags! We were wow-ed by the demos!
Next was my favorite store in the universe, BCBG. I seriously sweat every item in that store, every season, everyday! I just really, really, really love their clothes, dresses, shoes and accessories. Allof my best dresses are BCBG, and I can never have enough! Here are full-length dresses in more hot shades for fall, green & blue, followed by dresses in every color! Taste the rainbow!
Studs and spikes are still a hot trend, and I can imagine so many celebs wearing this pair! Kim Kardashian for sure; that is, if her new stylist Kanye West lets her!
When we stepped into Aveda, I was so preoccupied by the feeling of arriving at a spa that I forgot to take pictures! It smelled amazing as anyone who has been to Aveda knows, and the music playing immediately had me ready to book a massage! I swiped on their amazing lip glaze in Mango Juice and sampled a pampering hand cream, then we snacked on the most delicious cupcakes I’ve ever had, which happened to be vegan!
Next we went to Kate Spade, which is such a wonderland for us girls! Clothes, shoes, accessories, stationary…the eye candy was endless! I was so distracted I took terrible photos, here are the best two!
Loving these lady-like bags – structure, structure, structure!
I love this “Rock the Casbah” bag! No matter the intended use, I would use it as a clutch for day or night!
Last stop on our amazing tour was Tommy Bahama! You may know them as the place your Dad gets all of his weekend/vacation shirts, but they now carry plenty of women’s clothing. I like these two ladies’ looks on the mannequins; the first is a great day-to-night look for vaca or everyday while the temps are still warm; throw a cardigan over it when temps drop this fall.
I think this second look is the perfect airport outfit; it’s chic and simple! Couldn’t you see one of your fave celebs breezing through security in a chic striped sweater like this?

One year ago today, Kim Kardashian wed Kris Humphries, only to file for divorce a mere 72 days later. While the divorce is still being dragged on, we can at least take away one thing from this day; Kim’s beautiful makeup! I wasn’t a big fan of her down-the-aisle dress and jeweled headpiece, but I thought her makeup was gorgeous, per usual. Here is a link to the instructions from Kim’s makeup artist that day. Check out the tutorial the two did together, below, with his best tips and tricks!
Tonight’s the night! At midnight, The Hunger Games will be available for purchase on DVD! (Unless you pre-ordered, which is my preferred method of purchase). Some Walmart locations will be hosting release parties beginning at 11pm; you can find the location nearest you here. Some of the cast members of the film, (AKA the tributes who got axed last) will be at some of the stores in larger cities.
The fab ladies over at BuzzSugar listed all of the extras that come with your purchase, including a two-hour “making of” documentary! If you’re hosting your own viewing party at home, how about taking some inspiration from this amazing party blog? Don’t forget the Capitol-worthy desserts!
Check out my Pinterest board for some fun Etsy finds for Hunger Games fans and Team Peeta!
Have a great weekend - the world will be watching!
