I'm so excited about this post, I have so much to share with you! But I will get to that! Yesterday, I ran a lot of errands which is not fun in 90 degree heat, so I wanted something simple, airy, and comfortable. Which is what I love about this outfit. The black dress has saved me many times -especially in the summer!- it is extremely light and summery. The vest has a fun draping effect and creates a unique silhouette.
The Moon Bloem statement necklace really elevates the look! It adds a fun, unexpected twist. When we met and Cee was showing me the different pieces of jewelry that she had, I instantly gravitated to this necklace. I have a thing for statement necklaces and this particular one really struck me. Its design is meticulous! Each strand is beaded with different shades of pink, orange, and even a few rhinestone strands spread out evenly throughout the piece. Just a hint of sparkle. I got several compliments on it yesterday!
As I mentioned, I have some exciting things to share with you all! Earlier this year I joined a group called The Fashion and Style Industry of Charlotte and met several amazing people, one of those people is a lady named Marie. She is the leader of the group, organizes meetings for everyone to get together, network, and indulge in our shared love for fashion. This group is actually how I connected with Cee (Moon Bloem) and Ty (of Tygerian Lace). I've gone to several of the meetings and gotten to know Marie, who is such a lovely person! She plans so many events -including a summer fashion show later this month- and while I can only imagine how busy and hectic her schedule is, you would never know it by talking to her! She is so calm, collected, easy to talk to, and generous. She reached out to me a few weeks ago and offered me the opportunity to be one of the lead bloggers for the re-launch of the Fashion/Style Industry website! I had to re-read the message a few times. It was so surreal!
We were able to connect last night at a fitting for the show and chatted more about it.
Needless to say, I am beyond excited!
I can't wait to share more with you in future posts, including the Fashion Show on the 28th! (It will be my first show!) =)
Thank you so much for reading and being on this journey with me! Huge thank you to Marie for this amazing opportunity! And another huge thank you to Moon Blooem for partnering on this post! =)
