I’m totally digging the concept behind this next feature. By matching your outfit to your affair you’re more or less guaranteed to win the title of the hostess with the mostest. Designed by Boutique Bites and captured by Carasco Photography, this vibrant and sparkly affair is just the pick me up I’m looking for. For more girly inspiration, you might want to spend some time in the gallery.


From Boutique Bites… I’m the owner and culinary style director of Chicago-based luxury catering company Boutique Bites. Apart from my catering company, I produce a lifestyle video series called Fashion to Fork, which is focused on styling everything from yourself to your spread for fabulously fashionable entertaining at home. This particular shoot is the third in my series entitled “Girly & Glam: A Girl’s Night in Garden Party”. The party colors were pink and gold and we made everything from the tassel streamers to the menu signage.

For my party attire, I wanted to incorporate gold and lots of sparkle. I’m wearing Badgley Mischka’a Fifth Avenue Showstopper Dress from Rent the Runway, Kate Spade Karolina Pumps, and a Zara necklace to complete the look.
