CapFABB October MeetUp

I had THE most amazing time last night at the Capital Area Fashion & Beauty Bloggers (CapFABB) meet up. As a co-founder of the organization, I was literally in awe of what this group has become. What was once Liz of So Much to Smile About and I’s excuse to get some of our favorite bloggers together for a cocktail hour has become a group with approximately 200 bloggers. Wow. Sometimes I just need to step away from the crowd at our meet ups and take it all in… and this night was one of those nights.

With the sensational BrandLink DC helping us host the event I knew this was going to be a fabulous night. Add on top of a killer co-host that the event was held at Nectar Skin Bar and BAM… that makes for an insanely perfect night of fashion, beauty and conversation. Oh, and not to lay it on, but every blogger in attendance also got to sip on Voli Light Voldka cocktails and this low-cal voldka is not even in stores yet! Yes, we were spoiled rotten. I was also going to mention the insanely fantastic goodie bags we got to leave with, but I thought at that point I would be just bragging. Hehe.

Want to see what I wore to the event and the details of how to get it? Head over to my outfit post here!

All in all, words can’t describe how absolutely fantastic last night was, so hopefully pictures will do…

I was obsessed with this chandelier in the entrance.

A pedicure room for a queen… and some of her fabulous friends.

Another chandelier to obsess over.

This Voli Voldka was seriously so delicious! Cannot wait for it to be available in stores!

Want a mani? How do you say no?

Snakeskin & Dots

Top + Pants + Necklace + Ring {H&M} | Clutch {Meeps Vintage}| Booties {Steve Madden} | Cuff {F21} | Watch {Michael Kors} | Bracelet {Yurman} | Manicure {Essie – Midnight Cami} | Pedicure {OPI – Give Me Moor}

This is what I wore to the CapFABB meet up last night at the absolutely fabulous Nectar Skin Bar. I decided to go with a chic pattern mixing look. I was originally a little concerned about the whole ensemble but with every step I took toward the venue I was falling in love with it. I feel like this look is so me. It is conservative… with a risk. I was comfortable and felt like a million bucks, but it’s all H&M which means I spent MUCH less then a million bucks! ;)

Side note – Aren’t these pants to die for!? They are snakeskin print and has leather piping on the pockets. Amazeeeee!

My recap of the fabulous-ness that was the CapFABB meet up will be posted shortly.
