Fashionably Late: February & March 2015 Events Part 1

It’s been quite busy for me lately, and I’m finally getting to post events that I’ve attended over the last couple of months!   I’ll be posting them in a new segment that I’ll call “Fashionably Late” (I’ve already posted one about the events I attended at the end of 2014 here and added Vanessa Balli’s event).  Anything outside of the more fashion related events will be posted separately (like music or food related events).

This one for February and March is quite large, so it will be split into two posts.  Cheers!

The Flowers on the Summer Dress You Wore in Spring

IMG_5392 (2)

A full post about the event will follow, but I wanted to get in a quick outfit post of the dress I wore to the Bright Pink event a couple of weeks ago at Westfield Mission Valley.  This is my third Voodoo Vixen dress, and all of their dresses make me feel confident and yet very feminine at the same time.  Maybe it’s the retro styling or the flare cut that does the trick, but whatever the case, these types of dresses are so beautiful because they flatter every figure.
