Last night was my first event for St. Louis Fashion Week! Fashion Week is usually held around the last week of September–my busiest time of the year–but thankfully this year the festivities were pushed back to November.

First up was the Emerging Designer Competition Show, the biggest runway show of the week at Union Station. It’s such a beautiful venue for a big runway and I had a blast, as always. I’ll be sharing an STLFW recap on Monday, but for now I wanted to share what I wore.

I found this magnificent studded denim jacket at an estate sale last year. It’s been waiting for its moment! I wanted to keep it simple, but edgy underneath so I stuck to an all-black, midriff baring ensemble and a dark lip color.


There’s still time to attend an STLFW event yourself this week! Check out my top picks below or the full list of goings-on here.
