Happy Friday Babes!!!
i am so excited that i can finally share with y'all some incredibly exciting news!! 
i will be joining Belk along with an exclusive group of southern bloggers for their 1st ever Southern Style Summit at this years Baker Motor Company Charleston Fashion Week!!!!  i feel incredibly blessed to be chosen for such an honor, and have totally been freaking out because i will be sitting alongside some pretty incredible bloggers, including, my absolute favorite Mary Seng of Happily Grey!!!  are you dying??  i have been following her journey from the beginning and truly she was my major inspiration for getting into the world of blogging in the first place, so to be anywhere in the vicinity of her is MAJOR!!!  ok, so if you're not a super fan like myself, no worries, there is plenty more for you to get excited about!!
get fully acquainted with all the bloggers HERE!
Marion Square will be totally transformed into a fashion lovers playground and before you even hit the main tent, there is so much to be seen!!  last year i spent most of my time in the Belk Tent sipping and shopping, so undoubtedly this year will be no different and this year Belk is offering a unique spring trend everyday accompanied by makeup touchups by the nights featured cosmetic vender.  i am most looking forward to the "Spare Me' theme on Wednesday.  not only is the title intriguing, but, uh, hello! or should I say, Chanelo!!!!  Chanel will be providing the makeup, so you know this girl will be first in line to get a little pampering a la coco! 
ok, so lets head to the runway.  Charleston Fashion Week is THE premiere fashion event in the south and every year promises to surpass the last in jaw-dropping high fashion.  from local boutiques to the emerging designer competition, there are always plenty of surprises and special guests including Trina Turk who will be showcasing her spring collection on Thursday, which has been dubbed Belk Night.  i am literally counting down the days, and I hope to see you all there!!
