Store Opening - LOFT Calabasas
While we're normally glued to our desks during the day, last week we were delighted to leave the office and attend the opening of LOFT's latest store in Calabasas. Our field trip was a total treat, but we weren't the only ones enjoying the event. Attendees, including Glee's Jayma Mays (the sweetest redhead on TV, in our opinion) and loads of well-dressed locals, sipped champagne and checked out the new store design, which has an intimate, boutique-like look. Of course, there was lots of shopping happening too, as everyone browsed the brand's summer offerings, which include lots of adorable knit dresses, bright tanks and tees, and easy wardrobe staples. Celebrity stylist Shane Cisneros"best known for his work with Leven Rambin of the upcoming Hunger Games"doled out suggestions and fashion advice to shoppers too. Of all the LOFT items, he was particularly fond of the boyfriend shorts and safari-inspired pieces in stock. "I also think their embellished belts are fantastic," Cisneros said. "They're great for punching up a dress or wearing around shorts." Glee star Jayma Mays had slightly different ideas about what to buy, specifically all-white separates. "I'm really drawn to white for summer," Mays said. "It's my easy go-to thing for the season because you always look so crisp and put together." We couldn't agree more!
