For any fashion loving woman, the idea of sitting down with a glossy magazine and flipping through the pages will always be more enjoyable than scrolling through on a screen. It is relaxing, inspiring, and the perfect way to break up the digital overload in our daily lives. When I Like Her Style Founders Kyla Getty and Jody Belanger contacted me last year with their plan to launch a Vancouver Based Fashion Magazine, I was beyond excited. I saw their vision, and I believed in it. There is no shortage of talented women in business in this city, and Kyla and Jody saw an opportunity to connect, collaborate and a create a media movement to showcase this talent. After months and months of hard work, these ladies turned their vision into a reality. Last week was the launch of the first issue, and to celebrate, they went ALL IN!! A private party held at Coast Restaurant, with a full guest list of Vancouver’s biggest influencers. No detail was missed; the decor, food, music, contests, prizes and swag bag were ALL great, and the entire event came together just perfectly! And who better to capture the night than Kim James Photography?! Cover Girls Danielle Wiebe (left) and Michelle Phillips (right) Danielle putting her flatlay skills to work! A station with copies of the magazine and props was set up for a flatlay contest. Such a fun idea that kept the guests entertained! The Cover Girls, Michelle and Danielle, using the props at the photo wall! A mini bottle of Henkell Rosé as a takeaway for the guests! The Private Room at Coast Restaurant. Lily of Divine Decor did an amazing job decorating the space. The gold accents and gorgeous floral arrangements were perfect for the stunning room at Coast. I Like Her Style Founders, Jody and Kyla, looking gorgeous as ever! This stunning floral backdrop was made by the talented Blooms and Paper. Xoey of AX ART Makeup providing touch ups on site! What a great service to have at a party! Each guest was greeted with a gold sugar rimmed champagne glass to celebrate! My friend Codi of Creative Wife and Joyful Worker posing with her adorable baby girl, Evelyn (whom I snuggled constantly that night!). Codi is carrying her prize – A stunning grey Mackage crossbody bag from Bella & Wren! Let’s talk about this swag bag. So many goodies inside!! The ladies of I Like Her Style not only hosted a fabulous party, they spoiled their guests with some amazing products too! I can’t wait to soak in the tub with these Kismet salts (maybe while drinking the Henkell’s and eating the candied pecans! ;-)) All photos taken by the lovely Kim James Photography Stay tuned for next week’s post about my feature in the magazine. I can’t wait to share more with you!
