Red Alert! Red Alert! It’s celebration season y ‘all. The galas, soirées, dinners, and fundraisers are abundant. And with this comes the dreaded question, what do I wear? Do I buy something new? Do I pull an oldie but goodie out of the closet? Maybe something vintage? The answer is yes, yes, yes, and yes!!! That’s exactly what I did with this look. You can rock this look at a Friends-giving event or your first dinner with HIS family. No matter where you decide to rock this, it’s pure FIRE!!! It just made sense for us to shoot at a fire house. I think we kinda nailed it…lol
Let’s get into this look. The stole is new, new. It’s a piece from Blair Eadie’s Atlantic Pacific x Halogen drop. The line is sold exclusively at Nordstrom’s. I picked up a few pieces from her drop last year. She did not disappoint with this year’s release. I wanted EVERYTHING from the line. I had to make hard choices guys. Do I get everything I want and we all eat peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for the foreseeable future? Or do I pick out one or two pieces and be a responsible adult? I decided to be a responsible adult. I am not Cardi B, I have to choose…lol
I have to say I choose an absolute winner. This faux fur stole feels like the real thing. I legit wanted to sleep in it. The skirt I picked up from Chicwish a long time ago. You can find something similar here. The sweater was a last minute find at Express. This sweater gave me the drama I was looking for. I love a dramatic top and the Juliet sleeves (long tight sleeve with a puff at the top) on this sweater gave me everything I was looking for. Don’t sleep on Express guys, you can find some real gems there.
The belt is a vintage piece. I picked it up from a vendor at a blogger conference I attended. More Than Your Average by Mya Price is a vintage/thrift shop. I spotted the belt during the conference and snatched it up before anyone could grab it. It pulled the whole look together for me. THE BOOTS!!! These boots are a crowd pleaser non-stop compliments whenever I wear them. The boots are an oldie but goodie, also a Nordstrom find. At this point I think you’re sensing a trend with me, I love me some Nordstrom’s. Sadly the boots are no longer available but Steve Madden has really cute alternative here. Creating a chic look wasn’t that hard, now was it?! Make it easy on yourselves gang, mix some old pieces with some new pieces and you’ll be surprised what you’ll come with.
