    And a skirt and shirt were given a saucy twist with a cinched belt and red accents.

    As for me, I wore a Michael Van der Ham printed shirt and a Marni skirt, accessorized by my Jimmy Choo Anouk Suede Pumps.

    I am honestly just one to sit behind my computer and write all the live long day. I wasn’t sure how these would turn out, but I have been so humbled by your support and honored by your presence in all cities. I can’t thank you enough for stopping by–and I can’t wait to do these again!

    And I said, these aren’t about me: it’s about networking, having fun, and socializing in the name of fashion. I hope you guys had as much fun as I did.
