One of the perks of attending the MAGIC show as an official blogger was the personalized gift bag. What's cool is that all of our gift bags and everything inside of them were different--most were picked out for us based on our personal style and preferences (how nice of them!). I was so appreciative of the things we got--a lot of them came in handy during the show. Here are the ones I used during our stay:


 Large tote bag (c/o LeSportSac)

Each of us got one in a different pattern--mine is a colorful floral print. Super helpful for lugging around lookbooks, snacks, a camera, paperwork, and everything else because of the multiple pockets. Also served as a great carry-on for the plane ride back.

Red tennis shoes (c/o Keds)

Other than my (beat-up and overused) pink Converse, these are the only other pair of sneakers I wear! Cute, comfy, and classic. They were great for walking around the convention centers and shops.

Deer print dress (c/o Mia Melon)

This was one of my surprise items--and what a surprise it was! I'm infatuated with animal prints, and this one has illustrated deer all over and a key-hole back. I wore it on the third day of MAGIC with a wide elastic belt and my red Keds (above).

Black chiffon shirt (c/o Ellison)

A wonderful basic. I wore this semi-sheer blouse during the first day of the show and paired it with my bow shorts. I plan on wearing it with more high-waisted bottoms.

Baby Beauty bow booties in bronze c/o Irregular Choice

Ahh! I love these so much. They're so much prettier in person. These booties are comfortable and fun--I wore them to the AllSaints party and didn't have any problems all night.

Chartreuse open back dress (c/o Lucy Paris)

Another one of my surprise items. I never really liked chartreuse, but once I put this on, I changed my mind (I need to stop discriminating against colors before I try them! I always end up wearing the ones I "dislike"). I wore it with my Seychelles "Ampersand" pumps and my H&M boater hat for the second day. In the photo above, I'm speaking on the Social House panel about bloggers and branding.

Black roll-up ballet flats c/o Flat Out of Heels

These portable ballet flats are the ultimate lifesavers! They roll up to fit in your bag and even come with a tiny drawstring tote to store your offending heels/uncomfortable shoes when you need to change them--genius! I'll definitely be carrying them around when I wear my heels. I got a pair of black ones, but they come in a few other colors and metallic finishes too for under $20ranging from small to x-large (women's 5 to 12), and xx-large (13-14) will be available soon. They're easy to wear, convenient, and can go with most outfits. I'll let you know how well they hold up as I use them out.


I'm extremely grateful to our generous sponsors and everyone who took care of us at MAGIC for making our stay as comfortable as possible.
