The fashion industry can be fickle, which explains why so few style magazines are printed on granite. Stay flexible with today's Groupon: for $30, you get two tickets to Viva Vaz Vegas (a $70 value). The event takes place at The Society Room of Hartford on Thursday, September 22, at 5 p.m.
The Viva Vaz Vegas event aims to connect ladies over 21 with the fashions and wares of more than 40 exhibitors, such as Diva Girl Purse Party, Glow Naturally Organic Skincare, and various local designers from Connecticut, as well as designers from other cities including New York and Boston. Complimentary tarot-card readings predict an evening full of cocktail and food samples from local eateries, and fashionistas feast their pupils on a runway show that shows off stylish threads and unlikely backflips. Artists from Bobbi Brown Cosmetics make over façades, staffers from Sculptures Salon beautify coiffures, and the spirits of X-Rated Fusion Liqueur accompany nibbles from area restaurants. Each attendee takes home a goody bag stocked with samples of cosmetics, treats, and loose change. 20% of ticket proceeds will benefit the MS Society.
