couple of weeks ago I had the amazing opportunity to fly to Las Vegas to
preview Jennifer Lopez’s fall collection at Kohl’s AND we got to see her
amazing show. But this wasn’t all, we also got to meet her…TWICE! So let me
tell you all about it!
was also super excited to meet the other girls I was sharing this experience
with: Desi Perkins & Cara Loren. The first day we had our styling session
with Jennifer Lopez’s stylist Rob. Each one had a one-on-one with Rob
where we tried different pieces of the collection. There were many that
caught my eye and others that simply impressed me because they are meant for
the body and not a hanger (meaning that they look so gorgeous on). All the
jeans fit like a dream…we all want that JLo booty, right?
the time our styling session finished, I had already picked two looks: one for
the backstage tour and one for the actual concert at night. Originally I was
going to wear the maxi dress with heels for the concert, and the jeans with the
top for the day. However, I felt the maxi dress was light, flowy…perfect for
the heat; and the jeans were perfect to dance the night away. This really shows
the versatility of the collection. While we were picking up our things…the team
surprised us and the one and only JENNIFER LOPEZ walked in. She started
chatting with us for a while about why she wanted to partner with bloggers and
how she wanted us to show that it is not all about designer pieces but about
fun pieces that are also affordable. We were left in absolute state of shock.
second day we headed backstage and it was so incredible. We talked with the
costume designers, we saw all of JLo’s outfits (if I’m not mistaken, they said
she changes 13 times!! So crazy). We also saw the props that are used, the
stage…even Jennifer’s dressing room! Now we were EXTRA excited for the concert.
headed back to the room to rest a little and change for the night. I should
really re-shoot my outfit for the concert; I thought we couldn’t bring the
professional camera so I only have iphone pics (and well, my pic with JLo..but
wait for that second encounter). We had basically the best seats…we were
super close, front, and center! We danced, sang…really had a blast! The
concert is a great mix of all her best-hits, with jaw-dropping choreography,
excellent dancers, and backdrops.
the concert, we stayed for the quick meet-and-greet. That’s when they took our
cameras and bags, and no iphone shots with her. We only had ONE chance, ONE
picture. I was pretty sure I was going to look crazy beside her gorgeousness
(everyone asked me, YES she looks as gorgeous in person and her body is
perfection!). But I’m happy I don’t look that crazy in the one shot, and the
outfit also looks cute, right?
