This 4 wheel lightweight luggage in various sizes from Chariot Travelware was an Emmy gifting favorite at the Debbie Durkin’s EcoLuxe Lounge Pre-Emmy bash celebrating #ChristmasinSeptember. An unusual theme for fall, but the Avalon in Hollywood was transformed into a winter wonderland (even though it was 90 degrees outside) in support of the Shriners Hospitals for Children in Los Angeles.
People brought toys to support the cause while noshing on marshmallow S’more bites from LA’s new S’More Bakery, and burgers from Rounds Premium Burgers while sipping wine from Fete Today (which has a celebration app that goes along with the bottle). Guests posed in the WIREIMAGE Holiday Portrait Studio with Santa and Mrs. Claus. ECOLUXE host How2Girl Courtney Sixx stopped by to create DIY Holiday Ornaments with celebrity guests and families and the decorated Christmas trees were donated to Shriners Hospitals for Children® – Los Angeles.
Guests loved posing with their new hard shell and soft luggage from Chariot Travelware that moves easily across the floor with its multidirectional spinner wheels. Everyone was happy to find a fun bold print and color to take home. Other Emmy gifting lounge swag that stood out were cool sneaks from Burnetie Shoes and jewelry from Ammanii Jewelry and AmyMarieRadzik Jewelry.
As I was leaving I saw Elliot Gould (Ray Donovan) entering the party while many Emmy nominated guests made appearances throughout the day, such as Beau Bridges (Emmy Nominated for Best Supporting Actor in a Drama for Showtime’s Masters of Sex), Khandi Alexander (Emmy Nominated for Guest Actress in a Drama for ABC’s Scandal), Naomi Grossman (Emmy Nominated for Outstanding mini series or movie for American Horror Story) and Abigail Savage (of the Emmy Nominated Comedy series Orange Is The New Black).
