It's been a whirlwind week but we did make it to the Grand Opening of Uniqlo on Newbury Street last Thursday night where the fashion bloggers turned out in force to help celebrate.
Other than the cocktails, treats and well-dressed crowd the highlight of the event was a traditional Japanese ceremony called Kagami Biraki. A barrel of freshly-brewed sake is cracked open with wooden mallets by the store management to bring happiness and prosperity for each new store opened. Needless to say, the sake was shared with everyone.
Then there was the team from Fomu serving up their delectable ice cream.
Of course we were enamored with the colorful green tea ice cream being served and, as usual, had to have several samples.
And then there was a fully-stocked store that we had the very first chance to shop at. I think I was the only one buying. I do love the design and fit of Uniqlo styles and I am not easy to fit. Somehow, everything they carry seems to be tailor-made for me.
Congratulations Uniqlo for the fun event and we join the team in wishing you success!
