Maryland Fashion Awards OOTN

Spoiler: I didn’t win! But it’s ok. This blog is still just a baby! The night was still fun and I got to see a lot of amazing fashion talent that I wouldn’t have known about otherwise. Here’s my outfit for the nightโ€ฆ.the dress code was “high fashion” and “black tie”. I don’t consider this blog either of those so it was tricky coming out with something to wear that represented my personal style and the style of this blog while also being “fancy”.

Necklace was a gift. I used it to be fancy but also add a pop of color since the dress was black.

That bag is pretty amazing. I can’t believe this is the first time I’ve worn it. I always wonder about who had it before me. I purchased it from a lady who said that she bought it at a random shop in Texas in 1962 and it had been sitting in her attic for decades. It’s a really sturdy tough leather and you can feel where the crafter tooled and stitched it. It’s like holding a little piece of history.

I got a lot of compliments on the kimono, so thank you all! It’s last summer H&M so I don’t know if they still have this exact one but I’m sure there are similar ones. Be careful wearing it, the fringes get stuck easily on things; doorknobs, jewelry, chairs, cars, etc.

Thanks to everyone who voted for my blog! Maybe next year ๐Ÿ˜‰
