Cognac Wellerlane BDAY BASH and Ladies Behind Lenses

Last week I had the opportunity to attend the lauch of Ladies Behind the Lenses and the birthday celebration of famed Fashion Week Legend and reporter Cognac Wellerlane.
This awesome party was thrown by a Marcy Clarke of Women’s Mafia.
The drinks were amazing, the cupcakes delish, the DJ awesome and Cognac…well she was just as Pink Champagne as she’s ever been. She was also presented with the first ever Women’s Mafia Boldness Award.
(Cognac, Nikki Roberts, Marcy Clarke)
This event was also a fundraiser for the Ladies Behind the Lenses Festival in the Fall. Nikki Roberts who wrote and directed the film Out of Darkness which was selected at this years Cannes Festival. The short film is incredible. Take a look at it HERE!!!

Outfit
Blazer: H&M
Bustier Top: ASOS
Shorts: Urban Outfitters only $20 Fashion STEELE! see them worn differently HERE!
Shoes: Jessica Simpson
Clutch: Vintage
Earrings: Mango
Overall this was an awesome event and I had a great time! I was a little nervous to show my middrift while wearing this outfit. I’m not really for showing my belly button…(atleast not since high school) but I think I did it tastefully.
What do you all think of showing off a little tummy?

    That’s just a teeny amount of midriff! And it looks good!! I adore this outfit! You find the best H and M pieces. How come every time I go there I can’t find anything like that?

    Nothing wrong at all with showing a little tummy (as long as it’s in shape)! Quite tastefull indeed. In fact, I love the blazer and the sliver of belly, classy and sexy at the same time!

    You have understated sexy down pact!

    I also second the person who mentioned your amazing finds at H&M. I look at your items from there and wish you would do a tutorial. H&M always fails me. I walk in, I walk out, with nothing in hand. 🙁
