This dress and overall look might be one of my favorites and it’s definitely my new favorite “Friday Night” getup!! I admittedly saw this dress on Stassi Schroder’s Instagram and knew I had to have it! It was sold out in the U.S. so I had to track it down to a little boutique in Australia. It’s of course, made by one of those Australian lines that I love so much- Finders Keepers. With the on trend gingham and the blue & black combo, this was the perfect dress for a night at Charleston Fashion Week!
Friday night was the Gwynn’s show at CHSFW, so I carried this absolutely FABULOUS Jimmy Choo bag, courtesy of Gwynn’s. I loved how the gunmetal metallics went perfectly with my jewelry! It was fun for me to branch out and wear a little bit of silver, when I’m typically a gold girl.
Since I was seeing the same people over and over last week, I knew I would need to switch up my hair and makeup a bit. So, for Friday night I jazzed things up big time and went for a bold smoky eye!! I used this tutorial and my Too Faced Pretty Rebel pallet to get this sultry look. Since that was so dark, I stuck to a neutral matte lip with a lipstick by Trish McEvoy from Gwynn’s.
I know y’all are probably sick of seeing me wearing these shoes, but my Stuart Weitzman nudists from Bob Ellis were really the perfect CHSFW shoe!! Not only do they look great with everything and make my legs look deceivingly longer than they actually are, but they aren’t easily ruined therefore perfect for trudging through the Marion Square dirt and muck!
What’s the best thing to make any girl feel fancy on a Friday night?! Diamonds, of course!! I was lucky enough to get to don some gorgeous jewels by Theodosia this week and this night was for sure my favorite! This beautiful art deco style ring was the topic of conversation all night! The earrings went perfectly too, so I showed them off by pulling one part of my hair to the side. This dress is definitely going to be a repeat offender!!
