Couture for a Cure.

Last night I went to a local event called Couture for a Cure with a couple of friends. We had so much fun mingling beforehand having drinks and appetizers, and then we watched a runway show put on by a local store called Leigh’s. They carry many high end designers and put together some fabulous looks! My favorite part of the show was the end when designer Daniel Vosovic, who you might remember from Project Runway, shared his Spring 2013 collection with us. I need to be better about taking pictures at the events that I go to. I really wish I had some photos to share because I love his collection!
For the event I wore a BCBG dress that I purchased secondhand from a friend. I didn’t have an occasion that I wanted to wear it for at the time, but the dress still had the tags on it and she sold it to me for a great deal. I was so excited to have an opportunity to wear it!
I repeat what I said before about my evening style. Here’s another look that’s a little more flashy than usual. I absolutely love the sheer top on this dress! It makes me embrace my flat chest because I can get away with such an exposed look without it coming off as trashy. Another bonus: I couldn’t wear a bra with this dress. Most comfortable evening look ever? I think so.
I tend to embrace the bold lip trend when it comes to dressing up for the evening. I tried something a little different this time and went with a dark eye and neutral lip. I loved the way it complimented the tones in the dress.
Because the dress and purse are both sequined, I kept my jewelry really understated. I’ve been seeing simple watches with evening looks lately and I love it. It’s practical, sophisticated, and unexpected.
