Scene: Target Style, CUSP, & Think Pink

Target Style

At Target in Bucktown on October 9th, fashion enthusiasts came out and met up for a fun style event and  competition with fashion notables from across the nation. Three stylists took part in the competition including Yanira Garza, Dana Weiss, and Emma Arnold. Zanna Roberts Rassi, fashion editor at Marie Claire and E! News correspondent, hosted the event while Courtney Kornegay emcee'd. Judges for the style competition included Ikram Goldman, owner of Ikram boutique,  Mickey of PAPER Magazine, and Mary Alice Stephenson  of GLAM4GOOD.

Before the event began, guests mingled with appetizers and beverages, complimentary makeup and photobooth videos. I attended the event with my friend Ayesha of AnUBlog and enjoyed the fun stylish atmosphere. When the event began, the judges and participants were introduced. There were two rounds in the style competition where the competitors had to create two head-to-head inspired looks for any situation.
