Girls Night Out with West Elm

On Wednesday night West Elm had the big grand opening for their new Seattle store! It was a ball.  They throw quite the party, let me tell ya (:

In the morning, my friend Cassie {from my design major! blog coming soon!} and I were able to go to their preview. Our friends at West Elm gave us the full tour of the stunning new store! We received details on the architecture, design and all of their products.  We also had the privilege of getting a sneak peek at all the Holiday goodies.  I have to say, if you're looking for some awesome Thanksgiving and Christmas decor, look no further...WE is your place. They have the most stylish and current holiday decor I've seen in quite some time.  I love how they make their holiday products tasteful and unique. {Lots of mercury glass, people!} I'll be sure to highlight my favorites soon! 

For now, I'll show you some of my favorite pieces we saw on Wednesday...

This owl came home with me:

So did one of these amazing pillows:

Sadly this chair didn't fit in my car...or my budget (; But what a great new canary color!

Luxurious bedding and stunning headboard:  

Sitting on my all time favorite settee {Elton Settee} that I sourced for an e-design client a few months back. Finally sitting on the real thing!

Holiday metallic prettiness:

Loving the layering: 

At night, we went back to WE for the grand opening bash! And that it was, as there were probably close to 600 people in the building! Here's my good friend Cassie and I at the party:

My blog friend Megan of Splendid Design also met us there! So fun to hang out for the night (:

And I guess you could say {between my William Sonoma discount and the 10% off for the night} we did some damage:

Alright, I kid...only 2 of the 4 bags are mine! But still...great stuff.

And don'tcha worry...I didn't forget about you! I brought home a souvenir for a lucky reader.  Giveaway next week (:

A few things you can do on the weekend:
1. Enter West Elm's sweepstakes & chance to win a trip to NYC!
2. Enter the Twirl Photography Giveaway posted on Monday...only a few more days to enter.
3. Enjoy the days off with family and friends.  Soak up the beginning of Autumn (:

Happy Friday!
