Have to Have and Lucky Go Shopping in Venice

FABB West took LA by storm. Check back often, because we'll be recapping some of our favorite moments and events.

“Where’d you get that _____?!” was a popular greeting amongst FABB West attendees. So it's a given that shopping dominated our pre-FABB activities on Sunday, April 29, when online registry Have to Have sponsored a boutique-hopping trip to Venice (hosted by Lucky’s West Coast editor Marlien Rentmeester).

More than 40 fashion and beauty bloggers piled into the Big Red Bus Company's double-decker at the Viceroy Hotel in Santa Montica, sipping Stacked Wines and munching on Fatty Sunday's chocolate covered pretzels. After arriving on the ridiculously cool Abbot Kinney Blvd., Marlien introduced the group to her favorite stores, including Heist, Undiscovered, Steven Alan Annex and Undrest.

Users voted for their FABB favorites on HavetoHave.com and the top three picks won. What items did shoppers have to have?

1st Place: An
 Isabel Marant dress selected by Melanie Lee from Wrecked Stellar. Melanie will have an exclusive interview with NYC designer Ammara and will receive the outfit of her choice from Ammara's Spring or Fall '12 collection.

2nd Place: An
 Attacama Wallet from Undrest chosen by Stephanie Liu from Honey n Silk.  Stephanie will receive a beauty basket packed with some of Lucky's favorite products.


3rd Place:  Lindsay Rogers from BelleBelleBeauty.com who loved these Alexis Bittar rings. Lindsay will snag a set of handbag accessories from Candy Stores.
