Hot and Streamy

This Alexander Wang streamer dress screams “Wear Me” every time I walk in the closet.  Although I can get pretty fancy drinking coffee in front of my computer, I had the perfect occasion to debut the dress last week.

When I saw this on the rack at Last Call Neiman Marcus, I couldn’t believe it.  Surely, this was an oversight and could NOT have just been sent from Bergdorf Goodman!  How could this be?! I was going to MAKE it fit.  Luckily, the sizing worked out in my favor!  You may have seen my twitter and instagram ramblings.

On a side note, Mr. S says like I look like I got in a fight with a paper shredder.  He thought I should call this post ‘Tore up from the floor up’!  LOL!  That man cracks me up!

I wore this outfit to a rewardStyle x Kelly Wearstler event last Thursday.  In case you aren’t familiar with Kelly Wearstler, she is a interior AND fashion designer with a glamorous and distinctive style aesthetic.  She was the creative eye for the Viceroy Resorts and designed the Bergdorf Goodman restaurant, and that’s just the tip of the iceberg.  I LOVE checking out her blog My Vibe My Life for inspiration.

Unfortunately, Kelly was unable to make the event because of unforeseen circumstances, but it was still a blast.  Her genius digital content manager, Erin W, filled us in on the upcoming news – another book and new blog due out soon.  We saw with our hands the new items from her Fall collection.  I’m dying over that gorgeous green leather jacket – it’s the perfect shade of green.  And I needed EVERYTHING on the jewelry tray.  There was lots of mingling with local bloggers, and I got to chat with two of my favorites, Judy and Jane Aldridge of Atlantis Home and  Sea of Shoes.  They are the sweetest dynamic duo!  I’ve been following Jane’s blog since 2008.  We even got a swag bag filled with a silk scarf and VIP discount card.  It was a great night!

Happy Wednesday!  Thanks for all the sweet thoughts and comments about my big news.  Y’all are the best!  :) And TODAY, I’m going to see Garance Dore speak at SMU in Dallas!  I’m such fan and smitten by her charm!  She will be at Neiman Marcus in NorthPark Mall tomorrow which I am contemplating going to also.  Obsessed much?!
