If you're in the area

When you are a blogger in a big city I imagine there are no shortages of fashion related events to attend, however when you are a blogger in Connecticut they are few and far between. So of course ever since I found out South Moon Under is having a grand opening party at their Westport Connecticut location tomorrow night, I've been terribly excited.

I attended their ribbon cutting in March, and the store is beautiful. If you are in the area, it sounds like it's going to be such a fun event! I plan on being there all night, and I would love to know if anyone else can make it. Find the details and invite below, and check out South Moon Under's Facebook page to RSVP!

Now I just need to decide what to wear...

Who: You and your friends! 
What: South Moon Under Grand Opening Party + House of Harlow Trunk Show 
Where: 14 Post Road E., Westport, CT 
When: Thursday May 1st, 6-8pm 
Swag bags for the first 50 guests · 20% off the entire store · Giveaways all night · Benefit Cosmetics beauty bar · Live DJ · Sweet treats and signature cocktails

  12. It's true that there is no shortage of events to attend when you live in a big city... but now that I've been attending them for four years, I realise that a few really good ones are worth more than ten that are just okay. I don't mean for that to sound ungrateful, but at a certain point, attending events becomes part of the "work" of blogging and that can take some of the fun out of it. Better to really enjoy a few here and I there, I think! And this one sounds like it's going to be wonderful.
    PS: I love that red bag more every time you carry it!

  13. Sounds like so much fun and I adore your dress:) Kisses, lovely.

  14. I need that nail polish color! It's gorgeous.

    The layering of your collared shirt under that dress is asdhaskjda perfection. Eep! You look so cute.
