The Music City Masquerade


If you are in the Nashville area and looking for an amazing charity event to attend this season, then you have to check out the Junior League of Nashville's Music City Masquerade.  Now it's been quite a while since I attended a black tie gala, so I'm super excited to be supporting this event.  If you don't know about the Junior League, its a remarkable group of women who come together to raise money and awareness for worthwhile non profits in the area, as well as committing a significant amount of time to such organizations.  Events like the Gala allow the League to continue to grow in their commitments throughout the community.  What a fun way to raise money for a good cause!  I hope you will consider attending the Music City Masquerade as well as check out the links for more information and tickets.  Also, be sure to check back here in the next few days.... I need your help choosing my dress!

Upscale Women's Fashions.... at a Steal!


One of my favorite upscale women's consignment sales is coming up in a few weeks and I couldn't be more excited.  Claire's Closet is a semi annual women's consignment sale specializing in upscale and name brand clothing and accessories.  This season's sale will be held February 28- March 2 in the Resident's Clubhouse located in the Westhaven community in Franklin (401 Cheltenham Ave)  

They accept new and gently used women's clothing (size 0-14) shoes, bags, belts, scarves, and jewelry.
 All you have to do it tag your items and bring them to the sale.  They will do the rest!  You set the price and They sell it for you! Why wait weeks or even months to sell your boutique items(and get paid) with a traditional consignment store?  Claire's Closet sells them in  3 days! 

Shoppers can find the best deals on gently used boutique brand items such as Tory Burch, Sevier Skirts, Milly, Nanette Lepore, Ella Moss, lululemon, Louis Vuitton, Tiffany, and so much more.  Volunteer to work a shift during the sale and you can shop before the sale opens to the public. 1 shift volunteers shop early and 2 shift volunteers shop even earlier!   This means you get first choice of all the fabulous items for sale. 

Visit Claire's Closet on Facebook at www.facebook.com/clairesclosetsale to be the first to see items as they come in from consignors,  their website www.clairesclosetsale.com for a complete list of brands accepted or contact them  at clairesclosetsale@gmail.com to register as a consignor or volunteer or to be added to the email list. 

If you are in Nashville, you don't want to miss this show!

Hello Again!

Several people have been asking where I've been, and I just want to follow up with you all since my last post.  I haven't posted in over a month...I know total slacker!  The holidays got so busy and I am now working a full time job as well as my three little ones at home who keep me running!  As you all who blog know, blogging can be a full time job, and I just haven't had the time recently to devote to the blog.  Therefor, I am taking a little break from blogging, hopefully not permanently, but for now, a break.  That's not to say if I have something I feel I just have to share... a new fashion find, a fabulous event, an amazing new store.... that I won't find myself posting.  So keep in touch and keep looking fabulous!

What To Pack for a Girls Trip

I'm going to share something about me with you all today that even I can't believe.  I haven't been on a girls trip in over six years!  Yep, that's right...I haven't been on a trip with just girls, besides work events, in what seems like forever.  I have three kids, the oldest is six, and it was before he was born that I was able to leave for a weekend get away.  Now don't get me wrong, I've been on plenty of trips with the hubby and friends, I've just never been able to leave all three kids with my husband for the weekend.  It doesn't help that I have a just turned two year old that is literally like an appendage on me, but that's another story.  So, yes, I will be off on a weekender to Chicago with the girls and I'm totally pumped. Question is, what to wear?  I've pulled a few outfits together that can take you from day to night, pack easily, and will have you looking smokin hot on your next vacay.

Day #1
Shopping Trip





Dinner and Drinks Attire



Day #2

Late Night



Day #3

Now, all I have to do is pack!

I'm participating in a fabulous giveaway over at The Daily Post blog.  My item is an amazing necklace from Hybrid Her valued at $125 seen here.  Go check it out and enter for a chance to win!

D.A.S.H. Link Up

Welcome to D.A.S.H.!  D.A.S.H. stands for Deals And Steals blog Hop and today is the inaugural link up that three amazing bloggers and myself have been working on for a few weeks.  Here's how it works...

Every Thursday we will be hosting this link up for you all to link back to your amazing deals and steals you've found recently and want to share with everyone.  It can be a picture of you wearing your deal, or just something on line you want to purchase.  Whatever it is, we want to see your post about it so we can all share in the deal!  The only rule is to please link back to all four of our blogs when you post since your link up will show up on all four blogs. Wine Taste Girl, Pinterest Told Me To, Get Your Pretty On and Found In My Closet.  So link up and check out the other blogs linking up as well.  I bet you come away with some great deals!

On to my latest deal and steal...


I already own a chambray top but I wear it so much that I bought another one.  Do you ever do that?  I know it sounds ridiculous, but whenever I want to wear it, the shirt always seems to be dirty so I really needed another one, right?  Well this one is from the J. Crew Factory store, was 40% off plus I had a special additional 20% off coupon so it was practically free! (Well not really, but almost).  Since not every town has a J. Crew Factory Store, and I'm sorry if you don't because that store is awesome, I found a similar shirt at Old Navy.  Better yet, Old Navy is running a 20% off deal if you enter the code ONHOLIDAY at checkout.  Love it!
$29

Speaking of deals and steals, if you are in the Nashville/Brentwood area you don't want to miss an amazing designer consignment sale going on tonight at 5:30pm and again on Friday at 3pm.  Here's the link if you want to see more information and pics.  Click Here for More Info.  This will be a fabulous sale!

What to Wear to a Christmas Party

Tis the season for all things that sparkle and your outfit for your upcoming annual Christmas parties should not disappoint. When choosing a must have piece, go for something that is versatile, yet festive so you can invest in a piece you can where to multiple events. I choose just such piece this year when I purchased this fun little number I will affectionately call my sparkle shirt

This gush worthy top I found at Saks Off Fifth the other day and it was marked down 40%! Gotta love those sales. What is so great about a shirt like this, is you can dress it up or down depending on the occasion. For dinner and drinks with the girls, pair it with black jeans and stilettos similar to the look I'm rockin here... 

 For the office party, or a dressy cocktail affair, pair it with a short black skirt, tights and pumps. So easy, festive and versatile. Want this look for your next party? 

 Shop It Here! 

 MICHAEL Michael Kors sequin top
$31.99

Old Navy Skinny Jeans
$19

Piperlime Black Skirt
$95


I'm linking up today for What I Wore Wednesday's. Hop on over to The Pleated Poppy to join in on all the fun.
