"24 Karats"

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a more eventful weekend than I did...LOL. I pretty much worked all weekend, but on Sunday I did get a chance to catch up with old friends and wear this AMAZZZING maxi dress.
I
I am a huge fan of Folake from Style Pantry. I have been following her blog forever. She is a true inspiration to me on so many levels (fashion, business, blog, etc). I was beyond excited when she launched her own online store Shoxie because it meant it was another resource to find great fashion at affordable prices, and it was awesome to see my ultimate business goal manifest in someone else who had the same dream!

I almost had a heart attack when I saw her wearing this dress on her recent post and quickly did a cartwheel when I seen that it was available at her online store. I knew in my fashion spirit that this dress was going to sell out FAST so yes I did what ever fashion junkie does...pulled over from driving and ordered it on my phone (**confession I was doing a social media check while waiting at a traffic light**)....LOL

The dress doesn't need much, so I kept my accessories gold and simple. I wore my favorite Queen of the Jungle necklace by Melody Eshani, black Betsey Johnson pumps, and my initial studs.

The dress arrived in two days, and  as you see is everything I expected and more. I love the fit and the length. The only issue I had was I had to pin the top closed because I am busty, other that that perfection!
I am excited that Thanksgiving is Thursday and I am able to fly home to Salt Lake City to visit my family. I can't wait!!! You can also check out the other dress wore that was inspired by Style Panty HERE
