Update Your Look! Event

April 14, 2015

The Infamous White Room at Crompton Collective – right before the party started. How awesome are those dream catchers?

So grateful for the opportunity to share The Fashion Cookbook with you all! Your feedback and kind words warmed our hearts.

Thank you to all of the lovely ladies who came out to the event! It was truly a pleasure meeting you!


So many lovely finds in the Haberdash booth! Three words – Vintage, Vintage, Awesome.


Found the cutest little accessories from fellow blogger, Holly Dolly. We’re talking sewing spoodle necklaces, say what?! Too cute.


Project Bead also made an appearance, selling these gorgeous bracelets for a great cause – funding education in Ghana.


Met our new Photographer Bestie Nina from Blue Fly Lens and her adorable little one. Those cheeks are everything, and her photography is pretty amazing too. 


We had a blast styling! It was so much fun creating outfits from all of our vendor booths. Can you say, shop ’till you drop?

A couple weeks ago we held a very special event with a local company named Crompton Collective. Crompton Collective is a curated boutique marketplace located in a beautiful historic mill in downtown Worcester. On the last Sunday of March, we partnered with them for an “Update Your Look” fashion event. The event itself consisted of local shops and vendors coming together, who focused on clothing, jewelry, accessories, and hair & makeup. These vendors both showcased and sold their products in what Crompton calls, “the white room,” which is used primarily for larger events and every Saturday afternoon hosts a farmer’s market. The Fashion Cookbook was there to offer styling advice and taught attendees how to work their new pieces into their Spring wardrobe. This was our first shopping event and it was such an incredible experience! It was so special to meet people from the community and to introduce The Fashion Cookbook to  help serve their fashion needs.

Thank you to everyone that came to the event, chatted with us, got a mini style consultation, and allowed us to share our passions with you. We hope that you’ve been inspired to shop local. When we shop local we support not only businesses but people. We connect on a more personal level with those who are passionate about creating. Not only do we support our local economies but we forge friendships and we give greater meaning to the things we buy. Our material possessions take on stories, the visions of artists and curators.

Thank you to all of the vendors who came out – Nkd Waxing, Lashes, and MakeupThe Trunk & DisorderlyAlexis GraceFig Knitting, North Water St. Handbags, Haberdash VintageThe Hidden JewelThe Wolf and IProject Bead ,HollyDolly.

We can’t thank the Crompton team enough for all of their support throughout the planning of this event! We couldn’t have asked for better partners. Amy, your creative vision, determination, and positivity has inspired us. To Emily, Kat, and Olivia we couldn’t have done this without you!

Special thanks to Dalena Nguyen for her amazing photography. You can check her out on Tumblr and Instagram @Via.Grid.

We made this little video to share this experience with all of you who could not attend! Enjoy!
