In Honor of Fashion Week: Birchbox + Ann Taylor Shopping Event

An Eskie's Yelp:

Birchbox + Ann Taylor Shopping Event (Palo Alto, CA)

Welcome to the last day of Fashion Week! Well, technically my sapiens and I are celebrating from the West Coast given that Fashion Week takes place in New York City, USA. This intense and exciting New York Fashion Week (NYFW) event started on September 5th and ends on September 12. From there it travels across the pond to London, Milan and finally makes its last stop in Paris.

#ReadySetFinished +Ruckus Eskie 

Since were were not able to join the festivities, we headed out a few weeks early to secretly celebrate Fashion Week at the Stanford Shopping Center in Palo Alto, CA. Birchbox partnered with Ann Taylor Store to host their #ReadySetFinished party.

We were showered with champagne and sweet goods from a local bakery. Then each of us were given a complimentary Birchbox! The extra bonus was that we ran into two San Francisco Bay Area fashion bloggers! Kate from the TheFancyPantsReport (Host) and Franci from the TheFashionPalate

I submitted my photo above. Still no word of the winner :(

Items inside this exclusive BirchBox:

Of course we did NOT leave empty-handed, they had amazing deals. My sapien left with a couple of items in her bag. She found out later that she could have received a special gift with purchase--a scarf by Ann Taylor. Too bad she didn't know to ask!

Overall though, she was feeling especially giddy with her new polka dot Ann Taylor Katy Peeptoe Slingback heels!  

Of course, my other sapien was more impressed with the anti-mold chip inside the shoe box!

I suppose as much as I desire my BarkBox, the sapiens' need their Birchbox too. They have one for each gender!
