Cupcakes and handbags galore from Bag Borrow or Steal

Who doesn’t love a fabulous summer party? Especially one that includes the following, hair tinsel, chocolate wine, massages, food, music, girlfriends, cupcakes and eye lash extensions. This was all the buzz at the CRAVE Seattle Summer Party that took place at The Woodmark Hotel in Kirkland, WA. The evening couldn’t have been more perfect with the weather being beautiful, the sun shining and the water practically at our feet. The event was well attended by hundreds of successful and inspiring women, I very much enjoyed taking in all of the pretty shoes and dresses guests wore. A summer party after all is the perfect excuse to dress up and stand out, right?

Head to toe in Nordstrom merch. Love that store.

One more of my hat! Perfect for keeping my eyes out of the sun. Oh and that’s an Alexis Bittar bangle on my wrist.

In getting ready for a party like this I thought long and hard about what to wear, I knew I wanted to wear a dress and wedges (a summery combination). When I put my outfit on it felt as though something was missing, so I added to it a hat I purchased from Nordstrom a the beginning of the summer. Big hats are girly, elegant and fun, three things I was hoping to be! My hat came in handy in starting conversations with people I didn’t know and kept the sun out of my eyes, it ended up being more practical than I thought!

As the evening came to a close the sunset across Lake Washington couldn’t have been more stunning.
