what i wore: saint louis fashion week kickoff

I'm in love with my new dress. It was a great find from Byrd Designer Consignment (originally $425, purchased for $90). I wore it to the Saint Louis Fashion Week Kickoff Party, which was held at the new Public Commons at the Nine Network's space in Grand Center.

It was a gorgeous night and the new space is truly awesome. with six large screens, including two on the sides of different buildings. There was a presentation by Craft Alliance's Fiber Artist in Residence, Grace Kubilius - that's her on the lower left with ALIVE's ninja event planner Jess Leitch - I want one of those necklaces!

The Fashion Blog Awards were also given out that night - check out the post I wrote for ALIVE with the winners. Over the next two weeks, there are more amazing events planned all over the city. ALIVE's Fashion Editor, Sarah Stallman, did a great roundup of all the fashion week events on her blog. Follow me on Instagram for more party pics and see the schedule and buy tickets here!

When it's 97 degrees and 80% humidity, wardrobe options are limited. The only thing I felt like wearing on a recent night out was the lightest-weight dress I own.


This dress was a long caftan-type thing that I thrifted. I liked the pattern, so I bought it and chopped about three feet off of the hem. The sandals and leather backpack are also thrifted - my whole outfit is thrifted, yay! I made my necklace in a metalsmithing class I took at Craft Alliance, which was really fun.

A few other items of note:

I'm now a contributor to the ALIVE Magazine Style Notes blog! Check out my articles here (there's only one at the moment, but there will be more soon).

I'll be attending Saint Louis Fashion Week again this October as one of the STLFW bloggers. Buy tickets here to come with me! Also, you can nominate me for a blogger award here.
