Dallas Fashion Week Finale

I attended the finale night of Dallas Fashion Week 2012 and I must say I had a fabulous time. I attended three days of the events and I had the best time, so note that for next year. Tonight's event included a Red Ball Aids Awareness Benefit & Award Gala at the magnificent Texas Museum of Automotive History, hence the cars in the background.

Now for the outfit at hand.  Wearing a tulle skirt is something that I never I enter into lightly.  The thought about wearing a tulle skirt at the ripe old age of 31 had me doubting my ability to pull it off.  It's a tricky thing to pull off without trying to look too costumey or like I'm 12 (seeing as I just bought my niece one for Christmas).  I jumped into the challenge.  I figured to approach the skirt in the most sophisticated way possible and this is the outfit I came up with.

Skirt - Shabby Apple $62 (in an XL my waist size is 40 inches), Lace Top - Kim Kardashian Collection for Sears $50 (sold out, my bust is 44 inches), Belt - Michael Kors $50, Shoes -  Payless $20, Lip Color - MAC Spitfire

There was also awesome networking at the event.  I must shout out an avid reader, Adrienne, that I met at the Gala.  She was so excited about my blog and even though she is not plus size anymore, (she lost 80 pounds) she still is a reader.  I'm a regular girl who happens to record her life and style in a blog and it still amazes me that people are genuinely excited to meet "little ole me."  It was so humbling to met her and she was super sweet. 

Briefly, I wanted to share the next event that I'll be attending in Dallas.  It's called Girls Bite Out and it's a dinner party with a purpose.  All the proceeds go to the North Texas Food Bank.  For more info click here.
