Last night's date was a bit different than our typical Friday date night, we attended RD Style's Spring 2014 Preview Event! I had such an amazing time. There was a live DJ, fashionable people everywhere, complimentary manicures being given by Ginger + Liz to all guests, and yummy hors d'oeuvres!
I had the opportunity to chat with RD Style's gorgeous president, Samantha Hollinger.
She's an extremely focused, talented, and down to earth individual and I'm in love with her pieces. Seriously, there was not one thing that I saw that I wasn't in love with. Eddie, being my husband, knows my personal style very well, and he himself was viewing pieces and saying, "honey, this is so you right here" with every piece we spotted, lol! I took some photos of the showroom, as well as some of my personal favorites, which were either single pieces or completed looks styled on mannequins.

Getting my nails done!
As for my outfit, I headed to Marshall's once again to save the day for a complete look. I decided that since the event was held in NYC, near Time Square, I had to represent, which is why I opted for a NYC graphic tee. To add some stylish edge, I paired it with a pair of black skinny high waisted jeans with leather side strip detailing, and my Ralph Lauren sneaker wedges (remember I scored these at the Burlington Coat Factory months ago for the Knick Game?!). I wanted to go for an overall black and white color scheme, but chose to add some color with a pink lip, which is a huge trend in makeup this fall!
I personally like jeans or pants that have detailing down the side for my curvaceous ladies, such as the pear and hourglass shapes. The reason is because I feel that it really accentuates the hips, which you don't always want need to conceal. I would just suggest that you do have something interesting going on up top, like I did with the graphic tank and bold lip.
