Happy Friday, everyone! Honestly this week flew by super fast for whatever reason, but I’m still ready for Margarita Saturday tomorrow. Aw yeah. \o/
We’re gearing up for Spring 2014 St. Louis Fashion Week around these parts and I’m excited to get to check out all the shows this time! Last fall, Fashion Week aligned with buying a new house, my cousin’s wedding, and Strange Folk Festival (aahhhhh!), so needless to say, I only had time for one event. It was a doozy, though! If you’re local and interested in joining me in the fun, you can use the code “CT20” to get 20% off your tickets!
For all non-locals, I’ll try to keep my coverage as short, sweet, and relevant to your interests as possible. :)
To kick-off the festivities, last night was a VIP Bloggers Lounge event at Scape. It was really fun to catch up with all my lovely local ladies, sip some Moscato, and chat with exciting local brands and shops. Plus, who doesn’t love an excuse to get all dolled up on a weeknight?

Haha, I usually draw the line at outfit photos that are obviously taken in a backyard–especially for a fancy outfit that doesn’t match the surroundings at all–but I was in a hurry between work and the event and wanted to make sure I got decent photos! I have an awful habit where I get super fly to go out, but I’m so excited to go out and have fun, I forget to get photos of the outfit when I actually look my best! I guess that’s not really much of a problem since I prioritize living my life, but you know. ;)
The weather was insanely gorgeous yesterday and I decided to ditch my tights! Here’s a fun fact: that bruise on my knee is from last weekend when I got so excited to dance to Beyonce’s “Grown Woman”, I slipped on a spilled drink on the dance floor and fell. Always a class act, that Michelle Volansky. No regrets!
The team at Shirt Kong were so nice and talented! JoAnn–the woman with the perfect pastel pink hair in the photo above–painted that beautiful sign herself! I love small businesses that are passionate about helping out other little guys.
These metallic oxfords stole the show at the Bronx-Diba table. Also the clasp on that bag totally looks like a cat head! Definitely a bonus.
Glik’s surprised all of us with a really beautiful, on-trend collection of clothes and accessories!
BelleStyle makes beautiful jewelry right here in STL. Their table looked gorgeous!
How incredible is this swimsuit?! I kept wandering back over to the Triflare booth to admire it up close. They make the most colorful, fun athletic wear for women that I’ve ever seen!
Always a good time with DJ TrashTalk spinning tunes!
Jessie and I were hot pink/polka dot twins! Haha. :)
Thank you to ALIVE Magazine, Scape, and all the great local businesses involved in making an awesome evening! I had tons of fun and feel so happy to be getting to know so many other STL bloggers. We’re a small but mighty group of beautiful, diverse, spunky gals and I’m proud to be counted among them. :)
