Hope everyone had a great weekend! I spent mine on the Vineyard for my cousin’s wedding and it was the perfect mix of relaxation and celebration.
Last Thursday night, I got the chance to attend an event at Be Styled (the blowdry bar I mentioned in a previous post) with Boston-based designer Daniela Corte, and wanted to share a few pictures with you guys (you can check out more at Be Styled’s Facebook page). There were delicious hors d’oeuvres (just took me a casual 15 minutes to spell hors d’oeuvres correctly) and champagne to enjoy as we got our hair done and browsed pieces from Daniela’s collection—it was pretty much a perfect way to spend a Thursday evening with a girlfriend.
And speaking of epitomizing all things “girlie”—I’m about to have an uncharacteristically Rachel Zoe-esque moment over Daniela Corte’s leggings. THESE LEGGINGS. My friend and I each tried on a pair at the event and were immediately convinced they had to be made out of magic and unicorns and whatever Beyonce is drinking. I’m talking the most flattering, stylish, comfortable things I’ve put on my body in years. I was so taken by the high quality of all the pieces in Daniela’s collection. She imports the elastic from her home country of Argentina, and while the leggings aren’t cheap, they’re well worth the investment—I could immediately tell I would wear them multiple times a week.
As for my own clothing, I wore these fun printed pants to the event. They’re so comfortable and I love that you can easily dress them up or down. The weather in Boston this fall has been awesome, so no jacket was required—which is great for me since I lose 3 to 5 jackets per winter by “hiding” them at bars to avoid the coat check line. I’m the worst.
