Gahh, what a FABulous, Golden weekend it was for me! Hope it was for you as well. I actually spent pretty much my whole day in bed. I have come down with a terrible head cold, just thankful it didn't really hit until today- so that I was able to enjoy my night on Saturday at the Maiedae Mixer here in Atlanta.
For those of you wondering what a Maiedae Mixer is, it is an annual gathering for creative entrepreneur women, hosted by Savannah + Jenny the beautiful gals of Maiedae ! Just a reason for us creative, virtual lady frans to all gather together in real life! I actually attended this mixer as a helper//extra pair of hands. I reached out to them months ago about the mixer through email, and they got back to me asking for assistance with things that day, and in return I get to go for free! SO moral of the story- DON'T be afraid to put yourself out there, it [often] can work out for the best!
This years theme was " You're Golden" and everyone was encouraged to dress up as much as they'd like with the theme in mind. Gold isn't necessarily a color I have a lot of in my wardrobe, and I didn't feel compelled to shop for a dress either [ I've been much better with saving money lately].
So instead I opted for a number that made me feel golden! I got this dress about a year in a half ago from a thrift store, and the only other time I wore it was to a wedding I went to in Vegas. So I was just smitten that I had another reason to wear it!
My dahhling friend [ and hair stylist] Lori did my hair + makeup for me so that I could feel extra glam! AND I had my nails painted copper!
I only snapped a few photos before the event began, but heres what I got. Be sure to check out the #MaiedaeMixer hashtag on Instagram for more pics!
And here are a few photos from the smile booth!
