Brahmin recently opened their new store in Saddle Creek, and to celebrate, they hosted a group of bloggers at The Second Line in Midtown. We sipped cocktails, noshed on a delicious meal, and of course, talked all things Brahmin.
For those not familiar, Brahmin first launched in 1982, and the luxury handbag line is produced completely in-house, which allows them to create timeless collections that adapt with the changes in trends when necessary. That night I learned that Memphis is a strong market for the brand, and while they have been sold in department stores for years, they were really excited to open their own retail shop in Saddle Creek. There’s a special collection designed exclusively for Memphis (see it here), and they were receiving constant calls about inventory while they were setting the store up, lol. They held a soft opening the day after this event, but the official grand opening takes place on Friday, June 1st.
I feel like I’ve been repeating myself a lot about these events, but I really am loving how much brands and businesses in this market are doing more events with bloggers. Each blogger has their own level of influence, and for them to have events to bring us together is not only smart on their part (great PR at its finest!), but also a nice treat for us all as well.
Got to snap a quick pic with Bianca and Andrea, some of my blogger boos that night (I went to 2 other events before I got there so I had to play catchup ha ha). I’m telling you, getting to play dress up and have fun with your friends is amazing. Yes, we’re technically working, but we get to do it together so stylishly. 😉
I’m headed to NYC and D.C. for family vacay next week (I can’t wait! This is my first time for both places), and need a smaller crossbody bag to take around with me when we go sight-seeing. I think I found the winner. Thanks so much to Brahmin for this gorgeous bag!
