alt: winter whites

Because this entire conference is about blogging about various topics, here's my obligatory "what I wore today" post. Probably the one and only time you'll see me this way. The party this evening was a winter wonderland theme and guests were to wear shades of white. As a mom to a toddler, white is not something I had in my wardrobe. It was fun to go shop the post-christmas sales and get something light and sparkly. I scored some great soft corduroy jeans from Anthropologie (less than $60: marked down, then half price again!), a sequined shirt for $25 and a glittery clutch for $21. I was quite proud of my budget shopping results. The accessories and shoes are from my wedding outfit. (Actually my wedding dress was light green, so this was the first time I've worn all-white.) Anyway, it was fun to participate in a fashionable way and I'm glad I made the effort.

Speaking of parties, tomorrow night are the Mini Parties and for me, this is the MAIN EVENT. I have been planning the Squarespace + UPPERCASE mini party and tomorrow's the day to see it all come together. If you're at Alt, please do come to the party (I'm giving away complimentary copies of the latest issue of UPPERCASE magazine!) plus the activities planned are friendly, super fun and creative!
