Media Monday: Project Runway and JustFab wrapup

Well, it’s been a week and a half since my Project Runway viewing party sponsored by JustFab.

A fun time was had by all!

I sent out an evite to 93 people. That’s pretty much everyone I know who lives in a 50-mile radius and that I had an email address for. I do know a few more people, but if I didn’t have an email address, I couldn’t invite.

Stud Muffin freaked out a little when I told him I’d invited 93 women to our 1250 square foot house.

I did it for several reasons:

The swag JustFab sent. Sketch books, gift cards, favor bags, wine, catalogs!
  • JustFab committed to sending favors, buying us some food and drink, and supplying gifts. I owed it to them to make it the biggest bash I could.
  • My hostessing experience tells me that if about half to seventy-five percent of invitees actually attend, so my guesstimate was I’d have closer to 40 than 90 attendees.
  • My real life experience of living in the country has taught me that people think driving twenty extra minutes is no big deal until the time arrives for them to climb in the car and they change their minds. And it was short notice, so I knew a lot of people wouldn’t be able to make it and some would have something come up at the last minute. So I wanted to have some padding against the inevitable fallouts.
  • It promised to be a really fun evening and I wanted to share it with all my friends.

In the end, I had about twenty women come. We ate the food JustFab and a few of my friends provided. I set up chairs in the living room, dragged the dining table out of the way and we got cozy. I could have fit a few more on the floor in front of the television.

In all, it was the perfect viewing party. Even Stud Muffin ended up agreeing with me.

We watched the show. We chatted during the commercials about which designs we liked and why. Just like the judges, we were widely divergent on the runway designs. We agreed that the red dress was fabulous. We also loved Ashley’s motorcycle jacket.

That was beyond adorable.

We discussed if Tim would use his Tim Gunn save. We agreed that it depended on who was “out.”

Those of us who watch the show regularly knew that Laurie and Merline were on thin ice.

In the end, Laurie just couldn’t get past the double failure of her bottom finish the week before along with the JustFab challenge.

We agreed the judges made the right decision on who was out, but we weren’t unanimous on the winner. Some of us felt Ashley deserved another win. She completely recreated her look when Tim suggested the fabric suggested a hospital gown. She “made it work.”

A few more pictures of our evening:

JustFab has sent me a few of their products to try out. And they sent some gift cards for three lucky attendees at my viewing.

Next week, I’ll talk about what I ordered and what I think of the products.
