RVA Fashion Week: Day 2

Today, I bring you photos from Day 2 of RVA Fashion Week. It was a networking social held at Tobacco Company. It was a great event & I met lots of great people!

I knew I wanted to wear something I typically wouldn't wear, but also pieces I already owned. I have learned one can never go wrong with chambray. Normally I pair this shirt with colored denim, but I had only worn this chiffon skirt once before, so I knew it'd be perfect. I'm in love with my earrings from Sassy Jones Boutique, too. They'd paired impeccably with this outfit!

RVA Fahsion Week: Day 1

As promised, I've got a new post for your enjoyment! Last week was RVA Fashion Week. I attended the events last year & the previous year, but this year I decided to put my degree in PR to some use & volunteered on the PR team. It was a lot of work, but a lot of fun.

This year, Day 1 kicked off in Carytown. A few stores & boutiques participated, hosting a fashion show at their store front. I only snapped a few pics during the shows mainly because I get so wrapped up in the show, I forget that I'm actually a blogger & should be documenting these. The above photos were taken at AlterNatives & the other pics below from GlassBoat & Ten Thousand Villages.

Thankfully, what I did manage to remember are outfit pictures! I decided this year, I wouldn't purchase anything new to wear during fashion week (mostly due to a lack of funds, but I digress). The morning of the Carytown shows, I knew I'd wanted to wear a peplum top, the issue was deciding which bottoms to pair with it. I chose these magenta pants that I typically wear to the office, but wanted a pop of color. I didn't know how far I'd have to walk either, so I chose my cute yet comfy Jessica Simpson wedges. Naturally, I had to wear my Courtney Bib. The outfit worked for this day & I wouldn't change a thing about it.

I also popped into Fab'rik after their show & purchased some goodies you'll see later! I hope you all have fab weekends (I'll be working :-/)

I'm sure you've all noticed the tiny break I took from the blogosphere. I was starting to get overwhelmed with the responsibility of blogging, working full time, working out, helping out with RVA Fashion Week & trying to have some form of a social life that I simply just needed to take a break. I"m back now. What better way to kick off being back than to share some of my favorite Courtney-isms? Enjoy & expect a few more posts this week!!


P.S. How can Bravo not renew Courtney Loves Dallas for a second season??????!
