While growing up I can remember wishing that I could wear ALL of the pretty things. From as early as I can remember, I’ve always loved bright red lips, pointy toe heels, and fluffy full skirts. However, these were never the sort of things that my mama wore or dressed us girls in.
As a Baby Boomer raised up in a household of 14, she developed a very practical approach to life. When it came to her clothes and accessories there were no formal or special occasion pieces. If she was invited to such an event, she just wore what she had.
If mama was still with us, I feel like she’d definitely approve of this dress because it’s not the sort of dress that gets worn once and thrown in the back of a closet.
Over the weekend, I had the privilege of attending Atlanta Frocktails hosted by Topstitch and Fabricate Studios. This is a social event where we home sewists get to meet up with other makers in our community wearing something that we’ve made.
How I Styled This Look
Makeup – With this look I was definitely going for more Glam than my previous look shown here. I traded in my everyday bronze lip for a red lip and also added red nail polish and a set of lashes.
Jewelry – If you look closely, you will see that there is silvery glitter on the denim. Using that as my cue, I added a drippy necklace and earring set along with an over sized matching ring.
Shoes/Purse – Because of how dark the dress is I went with a nude colored cross body clutch and a pretty pair of patent nude colored Nine West strappy sandals with a pointy toe of course.😍
I had such a great time at Frocktails and I definitely plan to attend again. My favorite part of the whole night was hanging out in the selfie station with my sew sisters. ( I have got to get me one of those.🤣)
Gonna leave you guys with a few random selfie pics from the night. Until the next time……
