Last weekend I had the pleasure of attending Fashion X Dallas as press! If you are not familiar with Fashion X Dallas, it is a 3 day fashion event that showcases talented mainstream and emerging designers in Dallas. Two days prior to the event, I received an invitation to attend. I was so excited!! Soon after I got over the initial shock, I went into outfit planning mode. After spending a half hour tearing up my closet, I was convinced that I had nothing to wear! It always seems that I never have the right clothes in my closet whenever I have to attend a fancy event. Does anyone else have that problem? This meant I had to do a little shopping. After spending hours in the mall, I purchased a skirt and fringe bag from H&M and decided to resort to Pinterest for a little fashion inspiration for styling the pieces I already owned. Turns out my closet had cute outfits in there after all. It’s amazing how that happens.
Here is the outfit I wore to night one of Fashion X Dallas. I love love love the print on this skirt.
For day 2 of Fashion X Dallas, I decided to have a little fun and I allowed my followers on Instagram to decide how I should wear a little white lace dress. I provided 2 option choices and you guys hooked a sister up! Here are the two options.
It turned out that you guys really liked the black paired with the white dress so that is what I ended up wearing. I call this look the edgy wallflower. If I could only wear one look for the rest of my life, I would most likely choose a leather jacket, statement necklace, and a feminine dress with some edgy shoes. I love the juxtaposition of edgy and feminine.
For the last night I decided to break out some sparkle. I recently found a cute sequin vintage art deco inspired dress by Laurence Kazar while thrifting. As soon as I saw it on the rack I was like oh this is mine! I was going to save it for the holiday season but figured now would be a great time to step out in this beauty. As Fergie says, a little party never killed nobody! This dress is the party.
And that’s all folks! Which look was your favorite? Let me know in the comments below.
