It has been QUITE the week here at Shorely Chic! The opening party for my store was on Wednesday night and I was ecstatic with the turnout and just overwhelmed with all the love and support from my colleagues, family, and friends. People came from all over the area to see what the store was all about and some even brought gifts!! As I was setting up my dear friends Austin and Jennifer of Mabley Handler Interior Design in the Hamptons had the most beautiful bouquet sent up which I have to say really set the tone for the whole night. Their kind gesture melted my heart and affirmed that I am right where I need to be :)

Bloggers Stacy of Quintessence, Jessica of the Entertaining House, Adare of Fairfield County 411, and Marcy of Stylesson came out, and it was SO great to catch up with all of you :)

My mom and Brian did so much work to help make it a success, serving people drinks and making them feel comfortable, running out to get more wine and food in the middle of the event because we ran out (!), mom for preparing all the food, and Brian for being my right hand and the BEST fiance a girl could ask for.
