Two weeks ago I had the privilege of attending Dana Prigge's "Spring Fever" event at Neiman Marcus Last Call. It was an experience indeed, being seated in the middle of a luxury designer department store amongst great bloggers, writers and creative minds (while shoppers took a peek). My taste buds went on a roller coaster with peculiar yet scrumptious treats. That evening I walked away with some great styling tips for this spring; like investing in a white denim jacket, adding a scarf of color or pattern to give my outfit a pop, and adding jeweled head pieces for a bohemian look. I've attended three of many events Dana has hosted/coordinated, and each time I've been empowered and inspired. I am grateful for the connections I've gained through these events. Thank you to Rhea of sewstylishrhea for being kind enough to drive to NJ for the event.
Now, for my outfit! I changed my outfit so many times in my head. With the unruling weather, I was at loss for fashion. A few days before the event, I came across a current trend: The magazine/book clutch. I thought this was such a unique trend that I had to get my hand on one of these. I searched and searched and found many great magazine clutch at pretty affordable price tags, but still I was not satisfied. I came across a diy magazine clutch here. First thing that came to mind, BELLA Magazine! I thought, why not make my own magazine clutch out of a magazine I actually read and support? Why not create a super cute staple piece of the magazine I'll be in?!? You know it, I got right to it. There were a few bumps along the road of creating this masterpiece, but with the amazing team of Bella Magazine, I was able to
pull this project through.
With all that said, I was circulating my outfit around the clutch. I already knew what shoe I was going to pair my clutch with, but my outfit? That took me 3 changes to finally decide on going with this beautiful floral sketch turquoise dress.
What's your favorite spring trend?
