Last month the lovely team at LAGOS invited me to join a small group of about a dozen fashion writers and PR mavens for a Press Preview of the 2013 LAGOS Fall Collection followed by an intimate dinner at a stylish Philadelphia bistro. Hmm, try on baubles and bling, then enjoy bubbly and bites? Yes, please.
That evening I found myself smitten by sparkly additions to the Soiree collection (above left), mesmerized by the depths of a citrine ring and dazzled by the silvery sheen and dramatic scale of a Bold Caviar bracelet (all coming this fall). The store itself glowed like a jewel box, and steps away lay lush Rittenhouse Square, a part of Philadelphia that always brings Paris to my mind.
It was a magical evening and I'm sharing it here because you have a chance to experience the store, the shopping and the city yourself. In celebration of reaching 100,000 Facebook fans, LAGOS is awarding one lucky lady (or gent) a luxurious "Escape to Philadelphia," with airfare and accommodations for two in a posh Rittenhouse Square hotel plus a $1000 LAGOS shopping spree with champagne reception at the flagship store.
To enter, head to the LAGOS Fine Jewelry Facebook Page and submit your info by July 17, 2013. (You must be on Facebook and "like" LAGOS to participate.) Then perhaps wander over to the LAGOS website to daydream about which bauble you'd choose and click back here to share your choice in the comments below. I'll share more about my lust list in an upcoming post. Good luck!
