Sienna Ray & Co. Pop-Up Party and an Invite For You

Champagne, shopping, and a massage-giving shirtless dude: all of these things describe my Thursday night.

Sienna Ray & Co. threw a party on Thursday evening to celebrate the brand's pop-up boutique in Nolita. If you've read this blog for a while, you may already be familiar with Sienna Ray's luxurious leather handbags, shoes, and accessories. I was interning with the company in Vancouver when I started this blog many moons ago, and have loved it ever since.

Now, here we are in New York, and designer Natalie has a beautiful Nolita boutique to house her wares, and thankfully, my mom is no longer the only person that reads this blog.

The pop-up party was packed with people, and the shelves inside the boutique were lined with the handbags, shoes, and accessories from the current Fall/Winter collection. Champagne was served, manicures were had, and best of all, massages were given out by a man in just a Sienna Ray bow-tie because Natalie and her right-hand woman, Jaclynn, are hilarious and genius and will hopefully start an amazing new trend. Can you imagine if shirtless guys gave out foot massages during fashion week?

"It's been so long since I've been touched by a man." - things I say to envelop people in my awkwardness.
Marlisse in a state of pure champagne-and-massage fueled bliss.
I went home with a new bag that is the best thing to happen to me since a shirtless man gave me a massage.
