LA's elite ladies are so popular that they're sure to be invited to countless holiday parties this season. Before they hit the town, they indulged in not one but two pre-holiday elite events to help them get prepared and pretty!
Sunday was a ladies-only Beauty Bash at Benefit Cosmetics, where elites received eyebrow waxes, eyelash tints and makeovers while nibbling on bites from La Grande Orange and sipping beverages from Barefoot Wine and Bubbly. When they weren't getting gorgeous, the ladies received lip balm fortune readings from Psychic Stephanie of Los Angeles Mar Vista Psychic.
Rosa J says, "What a great Idea, to have girls hang out on a Sunday night, drink wine and bubbly and get your makeup done!" Teresa R raved about the desserts from La Grande Orange, including the "biggest, most delicious cookies ever!"
The next night, the ladies replenished their wardrobes at a Cocktail Dress Swap at the Whiskey Blue in the W Hotel Westwood. This time, they noshed on crab cakes and empanadas as well as more delicious wine from Barefoot Wine and Bubbly while they traded their fancy frocks. All of the dresses that weren't traded were donated to Women Helping Women, an organization dedicated to empowering low-income women to achieve self-sufficiency through employment success.
We think Pauline C said it best: "Free drinks, free finger foods, and free dresses. Ummm what's not to like?"
