Saint Louis Fashion Week (STLFW) started with a bang last night! If that opening event, held at , the scenic rooftop bar at the downtown Hilton, signals the standard of what’s to come during STLFW this fall, I’m even more excited than I was before.
The evening began with a cocktail party featuring special drinks provided by Pinnacle Vodka, Skinny Girl, and Beck’s Sapphire, and also a wide selection of appetizers provided by Three Sixty. The St. Louis Fashion Blog Awards immediately followed the cocktail party. I’m so thrilled to tell you that I won the best budget blog award! I was both the official winner and the people’s choice winner. Thank you so much for voting for me! It means so much! Thank you! Thank you!
Wanna see what I wore? I opted for an African-inspired look last night. I had a high-waist, full skirt with a fresh African print made during my stint in NYC last week. I paired the skirt with a basic black top. The outfit was finished by an African-esque collar necklace by Vince Camuto, red pumps, and a metallic gold clutch.
