Greetings ModLovers, Lindsay here with the newest installment of Outfit of the Week. For your consideration, we’re going to venture into the glamorous world of art benefits! Last Saturday, I attended Pittsburgh’s sixth annual Hothouse – an event to raise money for The Sprout Fund, a non-profit organization that supports local art and grassroots community projects throughout the Pittsburgh area. A showcase of local bands, gourmet food, and innovative projects set the tone for a night I won’t soon forget.
As you may have guessed, dressing for such an event isn’t something that should be taken lightly – press, photographers, and local trend setters always come out with bells on. I wanted to stay comfortable enough to dance the night away, yet stylish enough to turn heads and keep the flash bulbs hot. The perfect solution was simple (yet oh-so pretty) – The Lady In Red Dress by ModCloth favorite BB Dakota. I was looking for the perfect excuse to treat myself to this vintage inspired beauty, and what’s better than a night on the town? Sure, I could have stopped at a new dress, but what fun would that be? The Angels Envy heels not only feature the perfect matching hue, but a dance floor friendly cone heel that keeps a girl feeling good while looking better.
If you’re not already familiar with The Bittersweet Belt, take notice before its too late! This versatile belt has turned many of my favorite outfits into signature looks. Granted, the dress is fabulous on its own, but a belt is an easy way to get that put together vibe that all well accessorized girls strive for. Top it off with The Hotchkiss Headband and a glint of shine with the Bird By Bird Necklace and let the festivities begin.
Needless to say the evening was a hit. $130,000 was raised for a worthy cause and from what my camera shows, a good time was had by all. Now I have to wait patiently for next year’s epic party. In the meantime, I’ll work on my next featured outfit. Don’t forget to hug your local non-profit and as always, happy shopping!
