Were you a huge of fan of What Not to Wear? I sure was so you can imagine my excitement when I had the opportunity to meet the infamous style guru, Clinton Kelly. I attended a style seminar at Macy’s Lenox Square with style tips and questions with the man himself. I meticulously picked out my outfit the night before. I wanted to go with a nerdy-chic kind of look. I borrowed a tie from my husband’s closet and learned how to tie one courtesy of YouTube. After battling Atlanta’s ridiculous Friday rush hour traffic, I managed to arrive super early to the event which was rewarded with a front row seat!
Look how close I was!!! He was amazing and dressed to the nines as expected. No man can mix prints better than Clinton Kelly. He was just as energetic and engaging in person as he is on t.v. I got up the nerve to ask him a question on how a petite woman can wear a midi length skirt. He replied with some very helpful advice and here’s the kicker…..he said ‘I love your outfit by the way’. #WINNING!!!
There was a fashion show featuring his top trends of the season. I loved how he used models of all different shapes, sizes, and ethnicities. Here were my favorite looks from the show.
Winter white is so hot and this look just exudes elegance.
Tweed shorts with tights are a nice alternative to a dress or a skirt to change things up. The burgundy booties were killer with little cut-outs all over the shoe.
Another look featuring a sick pair of shoes. The blazer had sequin sleeves that were absolutely dazzling.
This holiday dress was meant to keep all eyes on you at the party. The dress had little peek-a-boo cut-outs all over that were so sexy.
One of the guest in the audience was Holly, a previous style offender on What Not to Wear, and as you can see, she’s still looking good.
Guests received a tote graced with this Clintonism.
After the show, I received a free makeover by Estee Lauder. They did all the make up for the models. I would have never thought to put these colors on my face, but I think it turned out pretty. What do you think?
I had such a great time! Thank you Southern Blog Society for the invite!
