When In Doubt

I hope you're having an amazing start to your week! I went to a fashion event last night for HelenJean -- a made-to-measure dress company that has just opened up a studio in Gastown.
I love when these events are more intimate because it gives you the opportunity to have actual conversations with the designer and other guests. I always love meeting other bloggers -- especially right in my hometown! (check out my instagram for more photos).

Now, most importantly, what to wear to one of these events... I usually just wing it and go with whatever feels right on that particular day, but unfortunately last night nothing felt quite right. So, I went with what I know is fool-proof. Something short on the bottom, something loose on top and sky-high heels. This top has been something that I find myself reaching for time and again. It always seems to work and I really love the cut-out on the back. It's nice and long and loose, but still looks quite chic with the collar and lace detail. One of my best Forever 21 finds to date! (other than my leather jacket, of course). I knew it was a more casual event, so this worked quite well and I felt comfortable standing and talking the whole night.

What about you? What's your fool-proof look to wear to fashion (or other) events?

  11. Black and white with some pop of color is my go-to outfit when in doubt! I cant believe this shirt is from F21. I thought Mango or Zara! You look stunning as always! so pretty! Hope you are having a wonderful day!
