The 5th floor of Saks was rocking with a DJ spinning tunes, cosmos waiting for the VIP guests, and a tableful of cupcakes waiting to be devoured. Girls in Tech LA is a terrific group of women who educate, support, and promote women in the tech industry and they sure know how to throw a party. With a 15% off coupon at Saks tucked into each of the swag bags, we all jumped at the chance to help out a great cause: Dress for Success. Saks was donating 5% of the evening's proceeds to the charity that donates professional attire and career support to women who are re-entering the workplace after unemployment. Other fun distractions included a photo booth and the Alice + Olivia Fall 2010 collection that was sitting just outside of the VIP room. Here are a few photos from the evening, video interviews to follow later this week:
