★ Shimmer: Fashion For Every Age and Size ★


Shimmer is a fast fashion retailer based in the San Diego area. They also have an online store where they sell some of their most popular items. One of this things that I love of Shimmer is that they cater to everyone; as the title states, "every age and size." Yesterday, Shimmer invited the general public and local bloggers to a VIP fashion show to showcase their new fashion.

The event provided free manicures, massages, and makeovers to everyone that wanted one and free goodie bags (as seen on my instagram) to the first people to arrive. I certainly felt pampered and enjoyed every second there. The fashion show was amazing. I loved that they showed how their fashion can be used by people of all ages and sizes.

I used to only go to the Shimmer in the Chula Vista mall because half of the store is dedicated to plus-size clothing, but I was surprised of the large selection of clothing that I saw at the Plaza Bonita Shimmer store. I will certainly be going back.

Another highlight of the night was meeting the amazingly sweet Maxine, owner of Vanity Girl Hollywood. Yes, those mirrors that we have seen all over Youtube and that we dream of. Shimmer uses Vanity Girl mirrors in their stores and trust me, seeing them in person makes me want them even more. I hate doing my makeup in the morning and leaving the house to discover that I missed a spot of foundation. Who's with me on that? I know I'm not the only one!

Lastly, I enjoyed meeting other fashion bloggers that share the love for fashion, blogging, and beauty. I don't feel so alone anymore. It's great to have a community of people that understand what it means to be part of these cyber communities.

Below you will see some of the many pictures that I took. Please remember to visit Shimmer Online and take advantage of their 20% with the code: Fashion20

Shimmer  es una tienda de "moda rápida" (como la de f21) que esta basada en el area de San Diego California aunque tambien venden en linea. Una de las cosas que me gusta de esta tienda es que venden ropa en tallas regulares y hasta 3x. Ayer, Shimmer invito al publico y a Bloggers a un evento VIP donde habría una pasarela que mostraría sus nuevos modelos y las nuevas tendencias.

El evento brindo al publico manicuras, maquillaje, masaje y peinado gratis aparte de botana, bebidas y una bolsita con regalitos que mostre en mi Instagram. De verdad que me senti super consentida! El show de moda me encanto. Ame que enseñaron moda/atuendos que pueden ser usados por personas de cualquier edad y talla.

Yo he comprado en Shimmer por varios años pero solo he comprado en su tienda localizada en Chula Vista ya que tienen una sección gigantesca dedicada a moda plus; sin embargo, me di cuenta que aunque tienen una sección mas pequeña en Plaza Bonita, su selección y variedad de ropa es grande. Definitivamente regresare a esta locación!

Uno de los mejores momentos de la noche fue haber conocido a Maxine, dueña de la compañía Vanity Girl Hollywood. Si, la dueña de esos espejos con focos que hemos visto por todo Youtube y que la mayoría soñamos con tener. Verlos en persona me convenció que necesito uno. Odio maquillarme en la mañana, salir y darme cuenta que me falto maquillaje en algún lado. Quien esta conmigo en esto? Se que no estoy sola!

Finalmente, me encanto tener la oportunidad de conocer a otras chicas bloggers que comparten mi amor por la moda, belleza, y este mundo bloggero. Ya no me siento tan sola jeje. Es súper padre tener una comunidad de personas que entienden lo que significa ser parte de esta comunidad cibernética.

Abajo les dejo fotos del evento. Espero que las disfruten tanto como yo. No olviden visitar la pagina de

    1. Hola Lupe!
      Si es una lastima que se tarden tanto en hacer este tipo de eventos allá en Mexico. Ojala pronto se pongan las pilas ya que se benefician los "vendedores" y nosotras como consumidoras :D El baile de finas estuvo BUENISISISIMO! :D jejeje

      Te mando un abrazo. Gracias x siempre pasar. Me haces feliz!
