Yes, it’s true. I’m an event snob and I’m pretty skeptical about invitations that promise attendees the ultimate, “Girl’s Night Out.” Don’t get me wrong, I love the idea of dancing the night away with my BFFs, sipping classy cocktails and taking home a goodie bag full of beauty products and treats, but let’s keep it real, all events — or cocktails — are not created equally. Fortunately, that was so not the case at last Thursday’s Hpnotiq Harmonie event, “Stiletto War.”
The event was held at one of Chicago’s hottest nightclubs, Spybar, and I had the pleasure of serving as host for the evening. Can you imagine a purple carpet filled to capacity with pretty people, a candy buffet stacked with cupcakes, chocolate, licorice, cupcakes and saltwater taffy? I’m not done. Close your eyes and picture a super hot DJ that spins the hottest beats, a raffle giveaway with a chance to win a pair of Raphael Young shoes and gorgeous mixologists serving an eclectic variety of Harmonie cocktails. Yep. It’s a true story and there’s proof!
Check out the exclusive video from “Stiletto War” presented by HPNOTIQ Harmonie, and if you haven’t tried the new ‘girl power’ liquor, you’re missing out on an opportunity to live by the brands suggested philosophy: “louder” and sexier, might I add! One sip and you’ll feel like a new woman, with a new attitude to choose and plan your perfect girl’s night out!
