Today's Everyday Fashion: Blogger Dinner

Anyone who knows me knows that I love meeting people, and I love to network. That's why I often organize blogger meet-ups in Orlando! Thursday night about 10 ladies and I met up for dinner and this is what I wore. (If you are a lady blogger in Orlando and want to join us, please shoot me an email!)

Styling tip: If you have a shirt you love, but it's too long on you, you can try "fixing" it like I did here. This top is gorgeous in person (may just be my favorite top of all time), but it comes down to my knees only in the front. After about 4 tries I came up with a belt trick to make it work! I belted it around my waist, and then pulled the material up to create a little pouf. The fabric is really sheer so it didn't add too much bulk, and it kept me from looking silly with a shirt down to my knees!

Shirt: c/o Saivana
Jeans: Gap, $35
Belt: Limited, $10

  12. Hi! So glad you like the blog! Have you seen my "Online Shopping Guide" which is a blue link in the top, right corner? There is a section on where to buy special occasion dresses, so I would start there. Let me know what you find and if you need help narrowing down your choices! :-)

  13. I love the fixing the shirt with a belt idea! I'll have to use that sometime! :)
