Evenings in Vogue

I got the chance to attend Evenings in Vogue at PUBLIC last Thursday with two of my coworkers! There wasn’t a whole lot going on… just mingling, an amazing violinist, makeup artists, cocktails, and hors devours. We stopped by for a little while before heading to Paris Club for dinner. Dinner was SO good. We tried a bunch of dishes off of the tapas-style menu and split a chicken dish. Everything was superb. Except the dessert… the dessert was PHENOMENAL. I can’t remember the name, but was some sort of chocolate and crepe brûlée.

^^ I kept this picture to show you the actual color of the dress. It’s more of a nude/blush than most of the pictures show. Gotta love indoor pictures and flash photography.

My black blazer was at the dry cleaner so I was improvising with this embellished jacket. I kind of forget this jacket lives in my closet, but I should really sub it in for my black blazer more often!

      I just hope it lasts considering I’ve worn it three times and it was only $20! Gotta love H&M 🙂

    That is such a lovely outfit! Can you tell me where you purchased your tights? I cannot seem to find tights that are that opaque w/out looking so thick.

      I believe these tights were Spanx brand! I got a small snag that night and had to toss them so I can’t double check, but I’m almost positive! I’ve also heard GREAT things about Wolford tights… Thinking that they might be the kind to replace the pair I ruined.

    This dress is fantastic & I can’t get enough of the embellished jacket. Too cute.

    Love this look! You definitely need to put this jacket into rotation because it is a nice change from the regular blazer. Its just dressy enough to go a long with such a feminine pretty dress.

      I totally agree. I’ll have to wear it more often! I usually lean towards my other blazers since they are longer. The only issue I have with this embellished jacket is how it is slightly cropped… It hits me at a weird place depending on what I’m wearing.

      Thank you!! It’s always so interesting to hear what outfits readers love. Usually, they’re just outfits that I feel okay about. Funny, huh?!
