On Wednesday I had the pleasure of co-hosting my first event as a Charlotte Russe It Girl!
Yup, exciting! Fellow It Girl Ana and I were equally excited when we were asked to get our our holiday best for a night of fun, makeup, shopping and OF COURSE selfies at the Charlotte Russe in Perimeter Mall last week. I mean , it’s not everyday you get to host an event at the mall with one of your favorite brands. So basically I was QUITE excited.
When it comes to holiday style, I always lean towards a bit of shimmer or shine. It just seems the appropriate time of the year to embrace all ornament like fashion and shine a bit . With this sentiment in mind, I went for a head to toe velvet look.
Combining three of my most recent style obsessions; velvet and the colors merlot and blush, made my selection for the night an easy choice! Paired with my merlot pumps (also worn here) I felt like a holiday flower in this long sleeve velvet dress . With a night full of holiday music –well lit selfies- a candy bar that my boyfriend loved a little bit too much ( those strawberry banana gummy bears were REALLY good though ) and not to mention a lippie make-over station – the 3 hour soiree was full of laughs and new connections.
Shopping for the the holidays can be stressful and expensive sometimes — I can honestly say shopping at Charlotte Russe makes it so easy .
[ MY LOOK WIDGET]
HONESTY TIME – I had a week full of work the entire week prior to the party and couldn’t go shopping the way I wanted . Ugh — #responsibilties
BUT ,I was able to run in the closest Charlotte Russe for 15 minutes – take a picture of 6 outfits I liked before I went to work the day before the party. On my break, I ran back to the store to try on the three that my best friend and I narrowed down together via text ( thanks Gabs ! ) and tried it on. In less than 15 minutes I was out the door with my oh so perfect dress .
True story . I lucked up! My procrastination didn’t turn out in disaster . If you are still looking for the perfect party look this holiday season check out this round up of the hottest looks from Charlotte Russe.
Big thank you to Francis and Kali from the B You Salon In Sandy Springs GA for helping us look so fabulous with our hair and makeup makeovers !
On a personal note, thank you to everyone who came out to support me and came to the event. I appreciate every call, text, and well wish that has been given personally and online . It is so humbling and motivating to know that others support and believe in your dreams and endeavours, especially when it is a reflection of your truest self.
So thank you ! LOVE YOU LOTS !
