By Invitation Only: A Dallas Tidbits Event

Last week, I was invited by a friend to attend the book signing party of By Invitation Only, the story of the Gilt Groupe founders Alexis Maybank and Alexandra Wilkis Wilson.  I choose to wear a couple of items I've bought from Gilt because, why not?
Top: Cynthia Rowley & Skirt: Dolan via Gilt
Earrings: Buried Bauble by BaubleBar a few months ago 
Braided Cuff: T+J Designs; Link Bracelet: Kenneth Cole NY
Clutch: c/o BCBGMaxAzria
Shoes: Jimmy Choo Freya
The event was held at Hotel ZaZa here in Dallas and it was so much fun. Getting to meet and chat with Alexis Maybank was definitely the highlight of the evening.  How often does one get to tell the leader of a favorite shopping site that your husband is not represented?  He is just tall, NOT Big & Tall!  Not to mention the amazing goodie bags that included jewelry by the fabulous Kendra Scott and gift cards for scalp massages at DryBar!
The images are top to bottom, left to right: The book display at the entrance of the event; The Kendra Scott team from the store at the West Village (they helped me choose the earrings and bangles I wore to the wedding in this post); Kendra Scott Swag Bags; Dallas Tidbits Q&A with Alexis Maybank; Gifted Necklace by Kendra Scott and copy of By Invitation Only.
It was a wonderful evening and I've already started reading this engrossing book which is much more a business guide than a book about fashion.  I can't wait to show you how I am styling the fabulous necklace and other Kendra Scott jewelry that the sales team gifted both my hostess and me!
