A little behind with recapping the Leslie Tessler trunk show but hey, better late than never, right? The event was small and personal. We met the designer, determined our personal color palette and nibbled on sweets while catching up with fellow bloggers.

1. White Professional Color Lab helped a few select bloggers determine our personal color palettes. First step was determining if your skins tones were best suited with “warm” or “cool” and then within those two categories you were given a palette. I was told I looked best with warm colors and was given the “fire” palette. Each of us were so different, super neat process! As it turns out the dress I wore fit into my palette, guess I know what works after all this time of figuring out what doesn’t through trial and error!
2. Faux fur collar accessory Leslie offers to spice up the capes.
3. Capes waiting on the racks for a new home.
4. Lovely environment for the trunk show!

Since I’m an lady on a budget I unfortunately didn’t leave with a beautiful new designer cape but I do still have the really cute one my friend gave me in the Spring and will totes be rocking this thing through the Fall/Winter!
This weekend’s photobooth I set up at Backbone Fest hosted by Birds of a Feather Creative was a sweet success as was the festival!! It was so much fun seeing local ladies showcase their unique talents! Can’t wait to see what next year brings with all the girl power surrounding this event!

    I LOVE that you get so much more use out of that cape than I did. I’m just too short to pull off the cape look and that hurts my heart. Haha.
