Do you remember my crazy day trip to Houston last month {documented on Instagram}?!  Well, it was a quick trip to visit The Outnet {Net-a-Porter‘s little sister} and The Coveteur {THE ones who take you into the closets of stylemakers}… wait for it… in TEXAS!!  That’s right, BOTH were in Texas.  I missed them the first go-round in Dallas because of a work conference, but I would NOT miss it when they hit my hometown of Houston.

Of course, it was the usual fabulousity to be expected when an event is hosted by The Outnet’s styling director, Eve Thomas, and content creator, Njide Ugboma, at the swanky Hotel Zaza!  Gorgeous dresses, heels, handbags, and accessories were on display.  The Coveteur was there to photograph all of it AND they had just coveteured my friend Monica!

Although my REAL camera was in my bag, I only managed to get iPhone pics.  How does that happen?  Anyhow, I got to meet new bloggers and ogle all the to-die-for pieces from The Outnet.  At the end of the event, we got goodie bags with a Coveteur notebook and giftcard for The Outnet!  Whoo hoo!

oh just that Proenza Schouler gold skirt I’ve been eyeing since last year // Charlotte Olympia glitter heels // Nicholas Kirkwood masquerade heels // swag bag – YAY!

Long story short, the purple split bell sleeve dress is the end result of THAT said gift card!  The MOVEMENT of those sleeves… well, it’s just so fun!  Can you tell by all my moving pics?!  I’ve already worn this dress 3 times – bridal luncheon, rehearsal dinner, Van Cliburn preliminaries.  Yes, DEFINITELY a keeper!  In case you haven’t visited The Outnet, it’s a must do!  I bought these heels and this necklace over Memorial Day weekend.  I know… TROUBLE!

{P.S. Ignore the crazy bruise on my knee.  My mom’s dog turned into mini Cujo and got me!  Yes, he’s a little chihuahua with a BIG attitude.}

Hope y’all are having a GREAT week!  Mine is a little hectic with some calmness sprinkled in!  Stay tuned for another fun one from Grandma on Friday.

  1. You had me at the title and color of that dress. It really is just fabulous.

    But OMG! Chihuahua’s are some of the fiercest dogs and NOT in the good way LOL.
