Saint Louis Fashion Week Opens with a Bang

Saint Louis Fashion Week (STLFW) started with a bang last night!  If that opening event, held at Three Sixty, the scenic rooftop bar at the downtown Hilton, signals the standard of what’s to come during STLFW this fall, I’m even more excited than I was before.  

The evening began with a cocktail party featuring special drinks provided by Pinnacle Vodka, Skinny Girl, and Beck’s Sapphire, and also a wide selection of appetizers provided by Three Sixty.  The St. Louis Fashion Blog Awards immediately followed the cocktail party.  I’m so thrilled to tell you that I won the best budget blog award!  I was both the official winner and the people’s choice winner.  Thank you so much for voting for me!  It means so much!  Thank you!  Thank you!

Wanna see what I wore?  I opted for an African-inspired look last night.  I had a high-waist, full skirt with a fresh African print made during my stint in NYC last week.  I paired the skirt with a basic black top.  The outfit was finished by an African-esque collar necklace by Vince Camuto, red pumps, and a metallic gold clutch.
