Elegance with an Edge + Giveaway

Image Hosted by ImageShack.us

Lulus top, Next Modal skirt, Olive and Piper necklace, Dapper Diction clutch, DailyLook heels, Michael Kors watch

Last night I had so much fun at the EXPRESS grand shopping event!! Hundreds of people showed up and I got to meet so many of my followers, Brooklyn Decker, the president of Express and I even stumbled upon some free dropbox space (super crazy – thanks to Amy and Ryan!!). The music was energizing and the hors de ‘oeuvres looked delicious. (I sadly never had a single chance to try them as I was too busy socializing for 3 hours… in fact I even started to lose my voice!) Anyways if you didn’t have a chance to make it out, you should definitely stop by during your next visit to Union Square. It was 3 stories, with the most modern and stunning design I have seen in any EXPRESS store before!

As for my look here, I thought it would be a nice little twist to throw this super elegant and feminine top + gold necklace with a simple but edgy skirt (edgy because of the zippers and the casual material). These two alone would have felt unbalanced but add gold and black accessories to tie it all together and I think it works 🙂

Now time for a new giveaway! (I will announce the Simply Eyeglasses winner in my next post :)) Enter below for your chance to win $50 store credit to Olive and Piper! You can even get the same necklace I’m wearing and more if you are chosen! xoxo

    Wow, it's lovely. I like how it's elegant but you've also added an edge, just like your title says! It's beautiful.I would pair the necklace with a solid color sleeveless cocktail dress. All the designs will be subtle on the fabrics so that it doesn't take away from the necklace's exquisite design.
