#MomtrendsBTS event and fashion show @VeraBradley Showroom NYC

1 Aug

Momtrends hosted their annual Back to School event this year at Vera Bradley’s showroom in NYC. My daughter Taylinn was given the opportunity to model in the fashion show and she was one very happy girl. The sponsors that the kids modeled for were from Carter’s, Appaman, Lands End, Stride Rite and French Toast. My daughter wore Lands End polka dot denim jacket, skirt and cute long sleeve shirt with horses. Her cute sneakers were from Stride Rite. To top off the outfit she carried a colorful Vera Bradley lunch bag. I was so proud of her. All the kids did a great job and even got to keep the outfits they modeled and were sent book bags and lunch bags to their homes.

Vera Bradley’s showroom is so vibrant and full of color. Her collection is amazing I wanted to take everything home from jewelry to wallets, iPad cases, backpacks and totes.

Vera Bradley spoke to everyone about the trends for the fall. I love pink and that’s the color that will be mixed with materials like faux leather and cotton. Barbara Bradley spoke about the 32 year old company that was started with a $250 loan from her husband that she gladly paid back.

French Toast has been around for more than 50 years and I have always relied on them to bring me the best school uniforms for my kids. Everything you need from polos, button ups, jumpers, skirts, and pants. I’m loving the pants with the bow for a belt and the shirts with buttons that look like bling. There’s also a one piece dress with the shirt attached. Incredible. You can also purchase a years worth of uniforms for $125. That’s amazing! They have really been a blessing for my kids. Love the new uniforms. Check out the website.

Stride Rite has kept my kids feet happy with all their amazing, shoes, sneakers, boots and sandals from all brands. I love taking my kids in for a shoe measure and let them pick out the great styles. These are very comfortable, durable and inexpensive. I also love the dress shoes for my daughter like the Mary Janes and the colorful, bright sneakers. My son foot is too big for Stride Rite but at least I have one child left who can enjoy over 400 styles to choose from.

Mabel’s Labels is a big hit with my kids folders, lunches, clothing, and school supplies that need labeling. My daughter loved all the labels especially the luggage tag with her name on it. All the labels have the name of the person on it. I picked up some with my name on it at the event that was pre-made for us bloggers. It’s all about organization. My daughter loves to be organized. She takes after me. The designs and colors are fun and stand out. I’ve never had a problem with these labels getting lost or not sticking well. Very durable. Check their website for a back to school combo.

Foods with no artificial flavors or colorings is a plus in my house. Revolution Foods provided us with a sample of their healthy snacks in our gift bags. I will be checking out their website for more info on how my kids can pack their healthy and fresh foods meal kits in their lunch bags.

It was nice to meet Wall Pops and learn about wall art and other goodies they carry. I especially liked this because my daughter (like her mother) loves decorating and this wall art will be great for her space. I want to see what she comes up with.

No parent wants to hear their kid say “my hair itches”, so the company Vamousse was there to show everyone their products to use to get rid of head lice. In 15 minutes the lice is killed. We received a sample in our goodie bag. Have never had to experience that and hope I never have to but it’s good to be prepared.

Sheila McCraith, author of The Orange Rhino showed parents her tips on how to yell less for a week, month, or year. I definitely could use those tips. I don’t yell everyday but I’m sure her tips could help. If she could do it for a year straight so could I.

The food was amazing. Sushi was served, my favorite and other goodies.
There were raffles and guests were given cute, colorful Vera Bradley totes with school supplies inside.

We had a great time and Taylinn is ready for her next fashion show. Thank you Momtrends for a wonderful event!!!
