Saint Louis Fashion Week Opens with a Bang

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.
