This weekend I had the honor of attending the Haute Curves Los Angeles Fashion Week Fashion Show and Charity event. The event was amazing with so many designers and fabulous fashions. I’m working on a full recap and will have it posted later this week.
Attending fashion shows probably puts most fashionistas on edge because you want to look pulled together, wear something trendy, but not too trendy, maybe wear something created by one of the designers of the show and so on…It can be a little stressful especially if your going on the red carpet or sitting on the front row.
I knew that I wanted to look great but also knew that this was somewhat of a working event for me so I needed to be comfortable as well since I would be walking a lot and taking as many photos as possible. I opted for a Pencil Skirt, blouse and Moto jacket. Pencil skirts are always perfect for pretty much any event. They have a very classic feel to them.
The Moto Jacket added that trend element since they are in for the fall season…although do they ever go out of style?
My skirt and blouse are both from Lane Bryant and the moto jacket I picked up from Nordstroms and it’s by Blanc Noir. Cap toes shoes are from Payless…Yes I said Payless and I love them!
My hair is in a two-strand twist pinup. I was going to untwist the hair in the front but I’m glad I didn’t as it was so hot taking pictures on the red carpet that I was sweating up a storm…A little embrassing to be honest.
But the evening was a huge success and it was such a blessings to see so many lovely ladies that I’ve met in the last year or so walking the red carpet. I was also blessed to meet the lovely Chastity of GarnerStyle and Tiffany of Lace N Leopard. I was a little star struck because it was one of those moments when you look at someone’s blog all the time and you actually meet them in person. Both ladies were absolutely lovely and sweet and I hope to meet up with them again in the future.
Here are a few pics of the my Outfit of the Night!
