Last night I attended a fun Shop N’ Style event at Ted Baker hosted by the fabulous Sydne Summer. It was a warm night in LA, so I decided to dress the part with a sleeveless polka dot dress and vintage (and vintage-inspired) accessories.
In fact, confession: I adore the show Hart of Dixie. You too? And it must influence me more than I think because once I saw these photos, I thought I do declare, that’s something Lemon might wear. (Pop quiz: Whose wardrobe do you love more, Lemon’s or Zoe’s? A: I love both, but am always blown away by the vintage ladylike charm of Lemon Breland’s wardrobe. Which, is kind of funny, considering I was a total tomboy growing up!)
I spruced up my polka dot dress with pink wedges (which you’ve witnessed me flamingo-ing in before), a bright orange vintage bag I picked up in Palm Springs last week, polka dot nails, an arm party and a vintage owl brooch and ring I also found on vintage shopping voyages in Palm Springs. I really do love that place and hope to have a weekend house there someday…
The event was filled with stylish, talented people (stylists and bloggers galore), the fashion was flawless and inspiring (both on the mannequins and the guests), and best of all, I won a $500 shopping spree to Ted Baker! I can’t wait to share what I spend it on xx. If you’d like to see more pictures from the event, check out the photos on Sydne Style.
Here is what I wore: Dress: Lulu’s (old, but similar ‘Cowl of the Wild Dress’ here ); Shoes: Rosalie wedge from Sole Society; Bracelet: Anya Designs necklace as bracelet (similar); Cuff: Kristen McCloud; Bag: Vintage from Revivals in Palm Springs; Ring: Vintage from Revivals in Palm Springs; Owl Brooch on Belt: Vintage from Bon Vivant in Palm Springs. Palm Springs, Palm Springs, Palm Springs!
