It's Getting Hot In Here: ALIVE Hot List Party

We may not be a fashion capital of the world (yet), but St. Louis sizzles with stylish, fashion-forward gems for our closets! ALIVE Magazine hosted a scorching party to celebrate the Editor's and People's Choice winners of their annual "Hot List," featuring beloved shops, eats, and nightlife destinations. The shindig was held poolside at the lovely Cortona at Forest Park with fun tunes and tasty apps. (Think: upscale Melrose Place with presumably saner residents and a hot tub.) Thrilled to don my dancing shoes for the first time in ages, I had a blast! I may have even been spotted by the DJ booth jamming to "It's Time for the Percolator." LOL
Goofing around with blogger buddies in the elevator! The wannabe rock star with the Kanye glasses in the back is me.
I was especially excited to be chosen as one of the Hot List Party Blogger Hosts, which meant that I styled a summer look that was displayed in one of the gorgeous units. This entire outfit from resale boutique extraordinaire/Editor's Choice for "Best Place To Shop For A Cause," AKA Rung costs under $70! (Look for it to be appearing on me in the near future.)
A funky and flirty look for summer - perfect for a hot date or night out with friends.
The vintage Harlequin bird necklace adds an extra pop of color.
I went for a similar vibe in a tribal dress from Francesca's Collections.
So, are you ready for summer? I hope so, because it's getting hot in herre. . . ;)

Please note: I received compensation from ALIVE Magazine to style a look for the party, but the opinions in this post are entirely my own.


  1. LOVE your dress, and those wedge sandals are exquisite!

    1. Thank you! The wedges are some of my faves too and will be in heavy rotation this summer. So sorry I missed you at the party!
