Smoking Hot!


One of my most favorite things to do is walk into my closet, get creative, and come out feeling proud. Usually it's inspired by something I've seen on a fashion blog or Pinterest. But last week was a little different in that I was inspired by a menswear party I had attended the night before.

Admittedly, I've worn this little bow tie necklace before. But I had forgotten all about it!! Poor thing had been buried in my jewelry/accessory drawer. It's nothing special, just a ten dollar children's bow tie from a men's tux shop that I've looped onto a chain I had laying around. But the effect was awesome in that I was asked about it all night. 

What about that party I mentioned? You may have seen a few of my instagrams - Social Primer held it's SP Smoking debut at the Charleston Library Society last week. From the looks of it when we pulled up, we knew it would be grand inside.


I'm not sure where he found his models but my guess is college campuses and CFW would have done well to snatch up a few of them. It was quite the mysterious and theatrical event. It got even more interesting when I ducked down to the basement for the SP Smoking (hot!) tuxedo collection's photo shoot.

All the while, guests are partying it up just one floor above. This collection is due for fall but you can check out Social Primer's current collection at Brooks Brothers here.

PS - that fun & wild dress I'm wearing up top (underneath my raincoat) can be found on sale here!
