Last night was the Preview Party for Memphis Fashion Week and I stopped by with Shaun to check it out and pick up my VIP pass for the weekend. The Party was held at Chickasaw Oaks which is one of my favorite places in town (we almost had our wedding there - I think it's a great reception place but I couldn't envision my ceremony there).
When we arrived we had a yummy cocktail - MFW events all have alcohol served and then checked out the VIP lounge where I got my VIP goodie bag and we noshed on some bites from Simply Delicious - I snapped a picture of one of the desserts because let's be real - that's always the best part.
The cocktail was delicious!
The Chickasaw Oaks stores were open for the event and Kittie Kyle hosted Nicole Miller for a Trunk Show. In the courtyard there was a great music duo so we enjoyed just sitting and listening to the music for a bit.
Also in the courtyard Sachi demonstrated how they create their custom shredded tee looks and freeze models showed off looks from some of the designers that will be featured in Friday and Saturday's shows - so pretty and definitly got me excited for the main events.
For this event I wore a top restyled from my closet purge project with a Tulle skirt and what was supposed to be my wedding shoes (long story short my dress was not ordered in a long and I'm 5'10 so yeah, no heels). When I first posted this top it got quite a few purge votes (but a good chunk of keep votes too) and I'm really glad to decided to keep because I LOVE this outfit. I'm really be digging black and white lately but I think the fun-ness of the look keeps the color palette from being blah.
