Breaking the Guinness World Record with TangoTab Terrell Owens and Mike Modano

I must admit that I had an ulterior motive in going to this event being hosted by TangoTab. Although I have an extremely charitable heart, I was really pulled into this event to see if Dallas could break the Guinness World Record for the most number of people making sandwiches at one time.

Yeah, that pile of bread over there...only the tip of the iceberg my friends.  Over 1,300 Dallas volunteers showed up for this imagine how much bread, bologna and cheese was actually piled up!

However, after piling into the Hilton Anatole and really getting into the spirit of the event, I'm so glad that I went.  I really enjoyed slapping some bologna and cheese between two pieces of bread and meeting other Dallas volunteers.  My sister and I made 80 sandwiches to be delivered to the North Texas Food Bank, Soup Mobile and Metro Relief.

Me and my beautiful sister, Meagan...ready to break the world record and make these sandwiches...fashionably of course!

Oh yeah, and we got to see Terrell Owens who I so desperately wanted to get the scoop on his two-week marriage and now divorce to a "random" unknown gal and then there was Mike Modano who looked ever so hot in his casual get-up.

Hey T.O.!  Hey Mike (on the far left)! I must admit...I'm liking the style that T.O. is sporting...very handsome!
Overall, over 136,000 local citizens were fed because of this event and in the end WE BROKE THE WORLD RECORD! My wheels are definitely turning on how I can add this to my seriously.

Volunteers making sandwiches.  However, I was completely baffled as to why people would not make sandwiches in an "assembly line" process rather than one by one.  Like, "le duh!"

Me and my sis made 80 sandwiches using the assembly line method..this is a box of 40.

Me and the current reigning Mrs. Dallas doing it BIG for charity!

Peter Pilotto Collection for Target: A Printed Paradise

So today marked the long-awaited launch of the Peter Pilotto designer collaboration with Target and I must say that I cleaned up.  I was a little leery of the boldness of the prints and how that would fare with my skin tone but I still woke up super early and arrived at the store 30 minutes before opening to make sure that I got first dibs on the collection.  Upon arrival to the store, I realized that there was noone there but me and my close girlfriend...this was good news, but it also confused me.  Where were the lines?  Where were the enthusiastic fashionistas who hyped up this launch?

Where are the crowds?  It was just me and my close friend...we couldn't have planned it perfectly! (My friend Marquea peering in the windows)
Overall, I was 50/50 impressed with this launch.  While I looked better in some prints than others, the cheapness of around 60% of the items really turned me off.  Yeah, yeah, yeah....what should I expect when most of the items were 100% polyester??? I know...but even still I was a tad bit disappointed.

The red iris floral romper!  Love!  Was so excited that it fit me and my long legs!!!  My favorite from the collection.
I did, however, find some great pieces and my take away from this collection is that the best pieces were definitely the swimwear, the red floral romper, the red floral strapless dress (recommended to go a size higher), the shirt dresses and the long maxi swim cover-up.  I can't wait to wear these pieces.  As of the time that I'm writing this, the online selections are sold out and the stores are scarce.  So glad I scooped up what I could at 8AM this morning!!!!

Love this corset swimsuit top!!!

The shirt this...can pair with boots, open toed heels, leggings, belt or no belt.

The maxi swim hi-lo cover-up! Pair with a swimsuit or make it casually appropriate by pairing with a bandeau top, leather jacket and booties...can't wait!

Grrrrr.....couldn't get this pic to rotate...but love my swim corset top with the matching shades!
