Neiman Marcus CUSP fall event

Hi everyone, happy weekend! Yesterday (September 15th), I got the honor of co-hosting the Neiman Marcus CUSP fall fashion event as a featured influencer! This event was an absolute blast and oh so beautifully put together by the NM team.

We got the chance to highlight different trends that are coming fall 2016, pick our favorite pieces that highlight our trend, and then dress our own mannequin with some of those pieces. You can see images from my trend below, which was texture; lots of lace, velvet, sweaters, and suede! Texture is a huge part of fall fashion this year and is one of my favorite things to add into a look. I linked some of my favorite texture pieces at the bottom of this post! Also, Neiman Marcus is doing a special promo right now; free Alice + Olivia clutch (floral one in second photo below) with $500 CUSP purchase!! Shop CUSP here to take advantage!

My fellow blogger babes (pictured below, from left to right) were Aika of Aika's Love Closet, Brittany of Pumps and Plaid, Megan of Sort of Style, and Lisa of Story of my Dress. And big thanks to Sydney Mintle of Gossip & Glamour for EVERYTHING she does for Seattle fashion. Hugs and kisses to you girls!!

I hope you guys enjoy some of the photos from the event! You can see more on Sydney's Facebook page here! I'll be sure to keep you guys tuned in on any future events so hopefully I can meet some more of you! Thank you to everyone who came out last night! xx
