I was so incredibly lucky to score a press pass through a delightful friend of mine last week, enabling my fashion obsession and allowing me to attend the swankiest of Nashville events at the Nashville Symphony - featuring one of the top evening and bridal wear designers in the country, Monique Lhullier. In addition to the total elation I'm still to this day experiencing due to the formal wear overload, I also got to meet one of my favorite Nashville ladies, Karen Elson. (You'll know her around town as Jack White's ex-wife, brilliant model and sultry songbird) Karen serenaded the crowd along with another great local band, Leagues.
Did I mention there was an open bar? Yeah. That was cool too.
So enjoy the impending photo flood:

What beautiful ladies! They were on point with their stylish ensembles and super cute accessories. I love Emily's bag and Leslie's dainty pussy bow. I always feel so awkward saying pussy bow - but I love them!

Chic plus size fashion blogger and Tennesseean contributor, Codie Gentry of A Brunette. Doesn't she look classy?
Fan girl moment!
Me and my favorite red headed songstress and model, Karen Elson. Check out her music, it's dreamy.
Amber Williams Chapman of DNAStylix
I couldn't have possibly expected a more beautiful collection. I was obsessed with all the fall and winter whites along with an array of textures, furs, feathers and fringe. Everything blended seamlessly together. The gold was a nice touch, too. I know what colors I'm incorporating into my wardrobe this F/W - thanks for the inspiration Monique!
Miu Miu sandals! Beautiful!
