French Connection US Event at Belk

I was thrilled to get an email from French Connection a while ago asking me to help promote their White Dress Trunk Show at Belk in Raleigh.  I was even more thrilled to find out that Zelle (Southern Style) and Emily (Life with Emily) were also going to be there.  I remember my first French Connection dress I got back in college for a black and white semiformal.  It had the most unique cut-out in the back, structured big sleeves, and was made to perfection.  What I love about French Connection is the fabulous quality and unique styles they always seem to bring to the table.  You can often find their pieces on sale too!
The fun started on Friday night when we decided that we should all meet up at 518 West in Raleigh, which is the best italian restaurant and is SADLY closing this weekend.  It’s devastating really.  Anyways, Zelle and I met the FC ladies there for dinner and drinks and had the best time. It was so interesting getting to hear all of their stories and backgrounds.  They also decided to order every single dessert on the menu and I felt like I was in Stepbrothers *Did we just become best friends?* Yes.
Saturday morning, we met up at Belk in Crabtree Valley Mall in our French Connection dresses and snapped some photos before most of the shoppers started arriving.  If you’re a future bride or graduate, you have seriously got to check out all of the stunning white dresses they have!
We helped customers style some outfits of their own and had a blast.  We also tried on numerous outfits of our own.  I wore this White and Black Polka Spray dress for most of the day (which, by the way, is on MAJOR sale for $88 here).  I also found another white dress that I would have totally got if I was graduating or something soon.  
I had to try on this cute black jumpsuit.  And Emily looked gorgeous (as usual) in this white dress she picked out.  
This outfit Zelle picked out was on point.  We all want that periwinkle leather skirt now.  Anyways, It was really cool getting to see customers get excited about picking out an outfit for a special event in their lives and seeing how confident and beautiful they looked.  I don’t normally get to work with fashion, other than this blog of mine, so I soaked up all I could.

Thanks for reading!
