Fashion Social Events

All dressed up

If you know me you know I will find any excuse to get dressed up. I love wearing heels and doing my hair and makeup. And nothing looks better than a man in a tuxedo, am I right…. I know typical girl. So when I got invited to a black tie event I absolutely jumped at the opportunity. I spent weeks pinning different dresses to my Pinterest board and looking for the perfect pair of shoes. My poor boyfriend had to endure several shopping trips to make sure I have the right shoes, accessories and lipstick.

I saw this lovely pair of black heels and fell in love instantly. Usually after 20 minutes of wearing heels my feet start to kill me, but these heels were so comfortable I didn’t even break them in.

I cannot wear costume jewelry. I feel like my body starts to reject it and I end up with a horrible red rash and Lovisa proved the answer. Their Stirling Silver jewelry line is super affordable and absolutely stunning.

I don’t often wear big and chunky earrings, but felt that the occasion called for it and I think it pulled the entire look together.

For my eyes and hair I kept it simple. A smokey eye with a slight wing was achieved using only Inglot makeup. One of their consultants did my makeup for the night and it looked absoletly amazing. I was so impressed with this brand. Not only is it cruelty free but also affordable considering it is higher end.

My dress looked amazing and was exactly what I wanted. I felt daring yet classy and sophisticated. A local designer made it and it fits like a dream. I absolutely can’t wait for the next black tie event.

 It was such a lovely event and I felt absolutely empowered and fabulous in my dress. With lovely friends and a handsome boyfriend what more can a girl ask for.
