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!!

City Sleek

southern-meets-chic-gwynns-51 southern-meets-chic-gwynns-57southern-meets-chic-gwynns-56southern-meets-chic-gwynns-54southern-meets-chic-gwynns-52A head to toe dark look is not something you’ll see me do often, but black has recently become one of my favorite colors to wear. I slowly see it seeping into my wardrobe and a lot of my favorite tops to throw on and feel myself in, are black. There’s just something so chic about a full dark outfit and this one does not disappoint. This velvet navy and black sweater is to die for!! The mix of colors and textures translate beautifully making this a very versatile piece. You can easily make it super fancy with a fun skirt for a night out or dress it down with boyfriend jeans and sneakers. I went somewhere right in the middle, pairing it with equally sleek leather leggings. Throw on a pair of classic black pumps and you’ve got the city girl look down! But, we wouldn’t want a city girl to look boring now would we? That’s why I had to add this fun statement necklace. This is THE perfect statement necklace to have in your wardrobe! With the combination of colors, you can literally wear this necklace with anything. Bonus: it’s got a magnetic clip in the back. No more frustration over not being able to get your necklace hooked! For a beautiful contrast of color, I wore this with a structured cranberry handbag. I am kind of obsessed with navy and cranberry colors together for fall and these are the perfect shades to compliment each other. Throw on a dark lip and pulled back hair and you’ve got a chic look that can easily take you from the office to date night!

Midweek Shoe Sale Fix

So, I’ve been wanting to break Southern Meets Chic into more than outfit posts for a while now, but I just never knew exactly where to start. That is, until I got word that Saks Fifth Avenue was having a HUGE designer shoe sale! Once I got on their site and saw all of the amazing deals and variety of styles, I knew I had to share this with the world!! If you’re like me, you love big name brands, but can hardly ever afford to fork out the dough for them. Now is your chance to get designers like Prada, Miu Miu, Jimmy Choo- the list goes on, at up to 60% OFF!! Now, a lot of these can still be a little pricey so I also threw in some, still designer, but less expensive options as well. I’ve organized them into 4 different categories- flats, sandals, dressy heels and casual heels with info below. If you are seriously interested in a pair, I’ve got a great contact over at Saks in Atlanta I can hook you up with. Happy Shopping & Happy Hump Day!!

6b9b0564e7127b298bc8b603984999961. Jimmy Choo Alina Perforated Leather Ballet Flats in Lemon <original price: $675.00 SALE: 315.16>

Consider these neon babes the new neutral for summer! You can wear these with virtually any color to add some fun to your everyday look. The laser cut leather was huge for Spring/Summer ’14 and is a great way to spice up a basic flat.

2. Miu Miu Patent Leather Mary Jane Flats in White <original price: $550.00 SALE: $256.79 >

These Blair Waldorf-esque Mary Jane flats will put just the right amount of “prep” in your step this summer. This style is perfectly classic, but with a modern and trendy twist. These can be worn easily with most shorts, skinny jeans and dresses. Now all you’ll need is a fun headband to complete the look!

3. Chloé Suede Mary Jane Double-Strap Ballet Flats in Red <original price: $630.00 SALE: $294.15>

I absolutely love these precious flats! The ballet flat keeps them simple, but the double strap adds a bit of funk. They are a great transitional shoe between seasons. I can picture them worn with fun, floral tops and black/white striped shorts, but also with black tights and a skater skirt and fuzzy sweater in the winter. Simply perfect!

620297d7e4228334b407ec491c6cf1371. Rachel Roy Camden Studded Ankle Strap Sandal in nude <original price: $295.00 SALE: $137.74>

These are a basic must-have sandal to keep in your closet! They are easy to throw on and put with everything. But, with the gold studs they are anything but boring! Great chance to add a staple shoe to your Summer wardrobe, and if you’re like me, throw out your 3 year old Target go-to’s!

2. Nicholas Kirkwood Bicolor Leather Zigzag Sandals in black/red <original price: $495.00 SALE: $231.12>

Now, I will be the first one to say that I am OVER chevron- if you’re considering it as a part of your outfit, don’t do it!! However, on the inside of your shoe it actually has a bit of a draw (besides the fact that it can’t be seen). These are a sandal that you can easily match with outfits, but still add a pop of color! You’ve also got to love that gold toe!

3. Prada Saffiano Patent Leather Gladiator Sandal in white <original price: $575.00 SALE: $268.47>

These white beauties are a different take on gladiator sandals. The gleaming white is perfect for summertime and will go great with all of those fun neon colors you’ve got in your closet! They can also take a classic jean shorts & white tank from boring to chic!

2e0b368260d80c4b45d45312e3dbbfd21. Tibi Anouk Leather High-Heel Sandals in Mandarin <original price: $395.00 SALE: $184.43>

The color of this shoe is everrrryyything!! The options of how to wear the style are endless- perfect for shorts, skirts, jeans, dresses..I mean the list goes on! I love the idea of wearing it with black/white, neon yellow or even a really pale sky blue.

2. Reed Krakoff Leather Cutout Pumps in Sky Blue <original price: $695.00 SALE: $324.50>

The laser cut leather does it again!! This time in an absolutely beautiful pump. Remember above with the Tibi heel in that great mandarin color? Now picture these shoes with a dress that color. Gorgeous, right?! Also, the perfect splash of color and sass to an all white outfit.

3. Jimmy Choo Thistle Patent Leather and Metallic Leather Sandals in White/Gold <original price: $795.00 SALE: $371.19>

Can you say Grecian Goddess sandal?! These babies are a great summer shoe for a night out on the town! Or, how about all of you future brides out there? These are perfect for bachelorette, showers, rehearsal dinner or even the big day!! A designer wedding day shoe for almost half off?! Oh yes, that just happened!

 


b34e2c8b887aee7ba6035e8fade7d4b21. Kate Spade Aisha Leather T-Strap Sandals in Luggage <original price: $328.00 SALE: $153.14>

If you know me, then you know I love a block heel! If you have yet to get into the trend, these are the perfect starters. The classic colors make this super versatile. This sandal will take you from day to night and looking super classy all the while!

2. Valentino Patent Chevron-Espadrille Slingback Wedge in Pink <original price: $575.00 SALE: $301.50>

Okay, so ignore the word chevron being in the title because that super cute stitching on the heel is nowhere near that stuff that makes me want to gauge my eyes out! These are the most fun wedges! I know they’re a little Elle Woods, but it’s summer, you’re supposed to add a little fun to your life and wardrobe! These would also make perfect pool party shoes- think Vegas & Miami BABY!

3. Diane von Furstenberg Remy Leopard-Print Calf Hair Cork Sandals in Camel <original price: $350.00 SALE: $163.41>

These 1970’s style leopard sandals are TO DIE!! It’s no wonder DVF is Rachel Zoe’s mentor/role model, these totally encompass everything that is RZ. Just add some bell bottoms, loose black tank and huge sunnies and you are ready to go!
