Beauty was a Beast

I’ve always been a girlie girl, no doubt about that! I love dressing up and feeling like a million dollars. Looking like a a million dollars is always the goal but you definitely don’t have to spend a million dollars for any look!

Being invited to an formal gala a week before made me feel a little anxious but I knew I could pull it off. I just simply had to grind and be in Beast Mode! The look I was going for was to be sexy yet classy, no cleavage and not too much skin showing. Being in a room with an older crowd I didn’t want to portray the wrong image as this was my first time at this particular event and meeting new folk of prestige.

Well believe it or not I pulled off this entire look for about $30! (check below for prices) Sometimes formal dresses can be a little out of budget especially when we wear them only once for special occasions such as weddings or galas! I did not want to pay that much for one night! I ended up finding a dress online from a lady who had only worn it twice and it was the perfect fit, not too tight and not too big.  The shoes and clutch bag were items I already owned but at good prices!

Night in the QC

It’s going down in the QC! Food, drinks, new city and just having fun! I’m not too much of a night owl like I used to be in my youthful days but stepping out once in a while is always nice to do especially when its a change from you normal surroundings.

I hadn’t been to Charlotte in the past 3 years which is shameful since I live about 2.5 hours away, but I don’t like driving! I hate driving lol. And this trip I still didn’t drive, luckily I have a friend that works at the airport.

Of course I had to pack accordingly for traveling and having a carry on, so a few sundresses a pair of jeans and heels and flip flops with cute tops and a skirt. I’ve always been a neat and organized packer so I knew I had to make my outfits work around the shoes I bought. I think most females can relate when I say some of us may take about 30 bags sometimes for just a weekend!  Learning to downsize and pack lightly was a challenge but I think I mastered it! I had fun and was able to feel  and look sexy and comfortable on my weekend getaway!

How do you organize your clothing items for travel?
