NYFW: Accessory Showcase

The first night of fashion week I hosted an event at the Carlton Hotel.  It was an accessory showcase featuring a bunch of different designers and it was also the launch of my friend Jaclynn's blog
"Blazers & Bellinis."  It was such a great turnout and I really wish it lasted longer!  I met so many amazing girls who follow my blog and instagram and they truly touched my heart with their kind words.  The first thing everyone said to me was that I am so tiny haha. I'm only 4'11!!  I honestly never thought that my blog would turn into anything so all of this is such a blessing to me.  I always say the best part is meeting new people and I truly mean that!  I hope that all of you who came out had a fab time and hope to see you again :)




Dress: C/O H&M (also love)/ Shoes: C/O Shop Prima Donna/ Necklace: Forever21/ Bag: Aldo/ Bangles: Bebe/ Lipstick: Urban Decay F-BOMB


I wore a faux leather dress from H&M but unfortunately you can't see it too well in these photos.  The sides were a different material and I really liked the contrast.  These shoes came just in time for nyfw and I am completely in love with them!  It's been awhile since I wore t-strap heels and these have a thin gold chain making them a great pair of statement shoes.  They're the perfect pair to dress up a LBD.



It was a really cool moment seeing my blog's name on the step and repeat :) 


So happy that 2 of my good friends came out to support my event.  I love being able to share what I do and what I love with them.  


With my little fashion designer from Texas & my two favorite photographers from Chicago :) Always a great time with them!


So great meeting you cuties!  You both looked fab!

I forgot to change my lens so it was hard having people take photos since it doesn't zoom out.  But here are some of my instagram/iPhone pics and a few from some of the ones who came out to support :)


Doing a little intro for the video linked at the end of this post!
