Black & Blue

by Jessica Sturdy on September 11, 2012

HIIIII!! I don’t even know where to start! Oh my gosh, I have missed you guys! Sorry for the lack of posts last week… I was running a hotel out of my apartment and had NYFW event after event after event, on top of work! I can’t complain… I had a truly FABULOUS week, but I did not have a single minute to myself, let alone to blog.

Let’s start with my outfit from the IFB Conference!

I was having a bit of a Carrie Bradshaw moment in this party skirt tutu! Big poofy skirts truly make you feel like some sort of princess!

Oh, and these shoes? Yes, they are fabulous. Yes, they were on sale. And yes, I took a three hour bus ride to New Jersey and back to get them. (Hi, my name is Jessica and I have a problem.)

This outfit is stunning! The black & blue go perfectly together and those heels are to die for. Completely worth the 3 hour bus ride in my opinion :)

Oh my goodness, you look STUNNING! I’m always apprehensive about blue on black, but this inspires me to rock it more often. How did I miss you this first day?! It was great meeting you for a milla-second at LuckyFABB haha…hopefully next time I’m in the city we can chat a little more.

Your 3 hour bus ride was so worth it – and I’m sheepishly admitting that your apartment turned hotel was for me.. You are the best for letting me crash!
Can’t wait til you invade CT in a few weeks. xoxo

JESS! First off, SO happy to have met you at the NYFW Eve Eve party! You gave me SUCH confidence to screw work, pick up, & move to New York! Fingers crossed it happens soon.

Also, I LOVE this outfit because it literally looks PRICEY. I just clicked on every link and was shocked to see everything reasonably priced! Love!

Glad we connected. :)
