Runway Off Wealthy

Runway Off Wealthy

There are so many things to love about Grand Rapids, but one thing that I have noticed over the years is that we are quite philanthropic. Seeing businesses like Lee & Birch + West Elm come together to not just put on an event to promote themselves, but to raise money for a charity makes me incredibly proud to live here.  

I'm excited to have teamed up with a local boutique Lee & Birch to promote their fashion show: Runway off Wealthy that is coming up September 14. It will be held on the beautiful grounds of Jeffery Roberts Design, which I have heard amazing things about! 

So whether you are ready or not, fall is almost here and what better way to gear up for the cooler weather than grabbing some great fall styles straight from the runway. 

Come enjoy live music from Adrian Butler, drinks + bites from an up and coming restaurant Zoko822 and several others. Enter to win several amazing raffles + prizes from local business.  Make sure to bring BRING CASH!

ALL the event proceeds will be donated to Kids Food Basket! How amazing is that?! It's hard to believe that so many kids right here in West Michigan don't know where their next meal will come from. If you want to find out more about this amazing charity + how you can get involved with them, please check out their website here

Grab tickets while they are available at Lee & Birch! They are going fast + you are not going to want to miss this event! If you choose to attend, please don't hesitate to come find me!

I spent the afternoon with my good friend Michaela over at Lee & Birch to get a sneak peek at their fall items which by the way where all amazing! I absolutely loved that their pieces are very versatile but most importantly you can find something in your personal style. Michaela and I have quite different esthetics, but their stylist was able to find unique pieces to compliment us both, which I was very impressed with. 

If you have been following my blog for a while you may have noticed that I have a thing for stripes + denim! So when I spotted this dress at Lee & Birch my eyes got big + even bigger when they handed me this loose fitting denim jacket to pair with it. I have said this before but you can't go wrong with stripes + denim! It's a classic pairing for any season.

This striped dress was so soft and for those who don't LOVE turtle necks this trending mock-neck is the perfect look without all the extra fabric. If you aren't a denim girl, no big deal. Grab your leather jacket or a solid color sweater + you are all set; that's the beauty of stripes, they go well with almost everything. I will say, be mindful about the jewelry you pick out because they can get lost in the stripes so make sure its a statement piece like this gorgeous stone necklace + a fun mix of bracelets.

I just happened to be wearing my hushpuppies which worked perfectly for this outfit, but this dress could easily be paired with some boots to complete the fall look.

Thanks to Michaela - she snapped these shots for me!
