Fashion’s Night Out (FNO) Post 1: The Look

Fashion’s Night Out in Baltimore was a really great time. Although it didn’t have the glitz, glam, celebs, and posh storefronts associated with New York, it was still an amazing experience.

I did A LOT of networking, found out about some great local stores and got to experience the core of what fashion and art have to offer in Baltimore.

The event was so JAM-PACKED that this will have to be a three-part post. The first, is going to be about my outfit, the second is going to showcase the venders and the fashion show, and the third is simply about all of the amazing people I met.

Special thanks to Baltimore Fashion Alliance for hosting an amazing event and I can’t wait to see what else they have in store for the coming months.

Soooooo, on to my ensemble!!!!!!

The look I was going for, aesthetically, was a  modern 70’s vibe. I was inspired by the skirt that I wore. It was a maxi that I found at a Salvation Army last year that I never got a chance to wear. When I put it on, it made me feel fun, vibrant and carefree. I took that and ran with it. I decided to modernize it a bit by pulling up the right side and giving it a flowing drape effect. For the rest of my outfit, I decided to take a ‘Thrifted Thursday” approach. My friend Beatrice of HeavenlyGlow.net has a recurring post she calls “Thrifted Thursday”, so I let that inspire me as well.

First we have my skirt:

I paired it with my vintage Iceburg blazer; check out the pocket detail:

For Shoes, I chose my “Daisy” platforms courtesy of Wild Pair from Bakers:

And I put my Arm Party away for the night, so I settled for Arm Candy. This consisted of two chained bracelets that I made myself; one with black ribbon threaded through it. A burberry Nova Check watch and a vintage Jade ring courtesy of Grandma.

For my necklace, I chose a beaded Aztec style piece that I bought last year from an H&M in NY while I was attending Teen Vogue Fashion University: TVFU (I re-applied this year, hopefully I get in).

My favorite piece was definitely my Vintage belt; borrowed from a wonderful friend of mine.

That’s all for now lovies! Hope you enjoyed my look as much as I did. My next two posts will be up in the next few days, so stay on the lookout.

Tootles until next time…..

XoXo, Jada
