For those of you who don’t know who Carli Bybel is, she’s a beauty/fashion Youtuber. I’ve been following her ever since she started and I’ve had the pleasure of meeting her twice. The first time was back in 2012 which was her very first meet up. Carli is a Jersey girl just like me which makes me love her even more!
This weekend Missguided had a pop-up shop in Soho, Manhattan for Carli’s new fall/winter collection. If you follow Carli then you know she had a collaboration with them once before. This time around her collection is a lot more her style. With there being a lot of dressier options for the holidays and/or special occasions there is also casual wear.
As for the whole experience it was a good one. Upon first arriving my friend and I walked right up to the storefront where there didn’t appear to be any line (awesome right). Yeah well we quickly found out by security that the line was actually down the street on the opposite side of where the building was. Needless to say we waited two hours before getting in to meet her. It was definitely worth the wait though. Once we finally got in and saw her standing there it became so surreal.
As for the inside of the store it was so cute. Carli had her own spot set up for picture taking with a backdrop of her from the Missguided photoshoot. (That’s her mom in the bottom corner). Her friends and family were there as well, along with someone else…Nicole Guerriero. For those of you who don’t know who she is, she’s also a beauty/fashion Youtuber who lives in Florida. The two of them are close friends and have been in each other’s vlogs.
Once it was my turn to take a picture with her I showed her the photo of us back in 2012 (from my last post here ). She loved it and that’s when she told me that was her first ever meet up. We took our photo’s and even some selfies, hugged once more and then I was on my way. You weren’t able to actually shop her collection in store, but you were able to order them off of the iPads before the actual launch. All the clothes that were there were for trying on and being able to see/touch them in person.
(I also got a picture with her sister!)
It was so fun getting to see her collection in person because it’s so nice! I also loved being at a Missguided event because they are a U.K. brand. Overall it was great and being able to meet her again along with others was definitely something to remember. Carli is such a sweetheart and so gorgeous in person!
I hope you enjoyed this post and until next time xoxo
