Sugar and Spice

Yesterday I had the pleasure of heading to NYC for the night to go check out Blue Stripe PR’s Blogger Open House Event. It’s always so nice that NYC is just a hop and a skip away from Philly. Of course I also went to meet up with some of my fav girls Keiko, Audrey and Claire.

The event was great. I got to meet up with Laney a lovely Blue Stripe Gal and talk about their company, fashion, and NY living. She showed us around and introduced me to Porter Grey. Hello, I’m in love. Porter Grey is a sister design team who’s pieces have such modern and clean lines. They also had a bunch of other samples from other designers as well. We chatted while munching on all types of sweets and sipping on champagne. At the end of the night, they surprised us by offering us to pick out a pair of shoes from 80%20. Can’t wait to style up the pair I picked out! Let’s just say they are some sweet brown wedges. All in all it was an amazing night of mingling. No sooner was I there that I hopped in a cab to leave for the bus again. Bye bye NYC. For now 😉 Ill be back next week for the Lucky Blogging Conference which I am SOOOO SO excited to meet lots of new faces. Hope everyone rests up this weekend. It’s going to be a CRAZY week!

I was OBSESSED with this Porter Grey leather dress on the left.

Some pieces that Audrey loved. And how cute is she??? We were ladies in red!

Such cute ladies. Love these girls!

Now onto the outfit. So I was very much inspired by the LOVELY B.Jones Style on this one. Once I saw these red pants I knew I wanted to pay tribute to her use of bold colors. Hope I can do it some justice! I love the simplicity of how it came out.

    myheartblogged - I love your outfit, and the leather dress. I can’t seem to find a well cut pair of red pants. I’m looking for more of a boot leg, flare, or even wide leg. The skirt Audrey picked out is really cute as well.
