On Saturday, May 14, eight local fashionistas were faced with a challenge: pair up and style two outfits for a total cost of $150 at Aurora Farms Premium Outlets.
Participating in the challenge were Alicia Lewis, blogger at The Tree's Roots, Amanda Antenucci, blogger at Closeted Fashion, Katy Hanawalt, blogger at Sugar and Chiffon, Nadine Nocero of Blog is the New Black, Rachel Schlather of CLE Fashionista, and Kent State University students Kaitlin Schott, Marisa Ramicone and Taylor Fritzsche.
The event was a great way for Aurora Farms Premium Outlets to collaborate with local style mavens, according to Kyle Hersh, Director of Marketing & Business Development.
"We had a great time at our Spring Fashion event on Saturday," he said. "It's important for us to keep our finger on the pulse fashion, and no one knows current trends like the fashionistas who live it everyday. Our first event was a tremendous success, and we look forward to continuing this collaboration with more events in the future."
Post-challenge, the fashionistas gathered at ThornCreek Winery to model the outfits they styled with pieces found at Saks Fifth Avenue Off 5th, Rue 21, Banana Republic Factory and more. See their outfits in the slideshow below:
