Glitter & Glamour
Last night I was lucky enough to attend Directives West First LA fashion show at the patio at CMC. Fashion is one of very few motivators for me to drive to Los Angeles, but I was glad I did, as this show was amazing! Thank you Directives West for having me.
Trendspotting: lace, flowy layers, tribal prints, and bright colors. I love color, so I am especially happy that that trend is here to stay for now.
One of the highlights of my evening was meeting the lovely Kristen of Glitter 'N Glue. If you are not reading her blog, you should be! So go, read now! Kristen is super sweet and looked so fabulous and chic.
Another highlight for me was busting out this dress I have wanted to wear for a long time, but was saving it for the right occasion. It's by Haute Hippie (my fave!) and is oh so delicate. I scored this dress from Saks Off 5th Avenue. I think it was only like $70, and if you know the price point of a regular HH dress, you know this is a major steal. I layered it up with vintage jewelry + Juicy Couture bracelet and cocktail ring (you have to wear a cocktail ring to a fashion show) and my beloved earrings from Christine Wallace. I don't normally like pictures of myself, but I thought this dress deserved to be shown off.
Have a glass of champagne and peruse the pics from the show. Then check out Kristen's blog and get some inspiration to craft up your own runway ready look. Cheers!
