One Fashionable Evening with Escada

Last night I attended a fashion show and cocktail party to celebrate the launch of the new Elizabeth Anthony expansion in Uptown Park.
The whole evening revolved around the fashion show featuring Escada’s fall, resort, and spring collections. Escada is an up and coming designer label that is favored on the runway by the likes of Gennifer Goodwin, Emma Roberts, & Kat Graham, (from my favorite show … Vampire Diaries! Yep, I still watch Vampire Diaries.)
Anyway, the Houston fashion blogger community has been so much fun to be a part of and I love getting the opportunity to go to these snazzy events and meet new people on such a regular basis.  
We had ourselves a fabulous time last night, people watching and oohing & ahhing over the pretty clothing.

After the show, we were invited back inside Elizabeth Anthony for a preview of the new store accompanied by light bites and cocktails. 
Light bites & cocktails are always a nice addition, in my opinion. 😉
I buddied up with Paola from WithinMyStyle the rest of the evening. 
We took goofy mirror selfies …
And posed with unbelievable gowns.
I can only imagine what kinds of luxurious events these particular gowns will be worn to one day.


I dressed up my little SheInside number (remember this … only $20!) for
the occasion with a black blazer, making the summery shades a bit more
appropriate for the season. 
I love stumbling upon cute and inexpensive fashion.  It didn’t phase me for a second that I was surrounded by exquisite dresses, that cost probably as much as a car, while I was all dolled up in a dress that may actually have cost less than two tickets to a movie. 
You can’t put a price (whether big or small) on style after all.


After checking out the dresses we stumbled upon even more beautiful
goodies to admire. These acrylic clutches were simply stunning! 
I would carry one with me every where I ever went … from now on. 

It certainly was a lovely evening and I left day dreaming of gorgeous gowns and wearing them to cinderella-esque balls.

But back to reality!

Also, I wanted to thank you all for entering my Boden giveaway that accompanied my last two posts! I’ve loved reading everyone’s favorite things about fall, and let me tell you those comments have me itching (even more) for the temps to drop down here so we can really enjoy this wonderful season!

I will be annuoncing the winner on Monday, but in the mean time check back tomorrow for some more fall fashions and another extra special giveaway.

Thanks for reading. 🙂
