I don't come out to play with the Hollywood crowd too often, but occasionally when an alluring event of some sort lands specifically in my inbox, I make the effort to schedule it in.
This time, the invite was by way of Royal Waistbeads (my mom's and my jewelry business). I've vended at/helped sponsor a few different Hollywood events via RWBs since my relocation, and with varying levels of success, I've tended to mainly stick with only selling online where we get the most love with the least promotional effort. (Fun fact: Sheree Fletcher, Will Smith's ex wife of Hollywood Exes, once purchased a set from me at the first event I did here. I had to look her up because I’d never watched the show, but she was such a sweetheart!)
However, when we were extended an opportunity to be involved with the Les Femmes show by actor Lance Gross, I figured I'd give it a go. Any of the event’s LA-based sponsors or gift bag contributors were added to the guest list, and our simple contribution of gift certificates was enough to grant access.
