Xbox 360 Project Natal Event+ What I Wore & Party Pics

what I wore+Miguelina silk crepe top+Prada Chandelier Necklace diy -2

Last Wednesday evening the husband and I went to an Xbox 360 event at The G2 Gallery {who donates all proceeds from art sales to environmental causes} on Abbot Kinney in Venice. We were so lucky to be invited to get a sneak peek at the new way of gaming with no controllers called Project Natal.

Last June, I posted about my excitement for Project Natal here and cannot believe just under a year later, I actually got to experience it before it’s even released to the public …which they’re thinking will be around the holidays 2010. How exciting. We literally cannot wait to get one in our home!

Since Mondays are usually reserved for a Completely Gratuitous Outfit Post …I’ll start with what I wore . . .

As we walked in, they handed me a super awesome new minoHD FlipCam {with the Xbox 360 logo on the back} that I got to keep. I used up the entire battery at the event and came home with little great footage due to my unsteady hand.

It wasn’t long before we found the sofa and planted ourselves there for the remainder of the evening. We really had the perfect view

…but ended up the background of many photos …oops 😉

    Maegan I tell you — you may be stunning because of your effortless chic taste, your knack for the aesthetically pleasing, but girl you have something about you that just glows.

    By the way, as much as if I was in your position I would be irked by my boyfriend wearing a Star Wars hoodie, nerdy is hot.

    Love your blog-
