If there's one thing Style Night Out 2012 accomplished last Thursday night, it was to make me want to go shopping. Bad.
The third annual event took place at Morrison in SouthPark, featuring the fall fashions of more than 30 independently owned boutiques, with models styled by Charlotte makeup artists and salons.
As I sat in my chair, gazing at the various trends (Side note: Faux fur vests? Not for me, but they were all over the runway. I did enjoy the sparkly New Year's Eve gear, though.) I couldn't help but feel a little proud of Charlotte. Our city isn't exactly a destination location in the South for shopping, but here's an event that makes you think twice about that statement. Congratulations to organizer Effie Loukas and her team for a job well done.
Check out this quick video and slideshow I put together of some of my favorite looks from the runway. In other words: Friends and family, these are pieces you can pick up for my upcoming birthday.
