Eye Spy {bar} a Tie|Fashionable Happy Hour

Tonight I had the pleasure of attending the Fashionable Happy Hour hosted by ClothesHound at the Spy Bar in downtown Raleigh.

It is a charitable event that benefits the Solemates Foundation. A foundation whose mission is simple: "To keep shoes out of landfills and recycle them for people in need".

Well what’s better than having a legit excuse I mean reason to shop! There were over 10 local vendors there selling their amazing jewelry, candles, and clothing items.

I picked up a gorgeous new cocktail ring that I am sure will be featured in a future post very soon!

Because I knew this event was tonight I wanted to dress up a little more than my usual ‘casual Friday’ work wear. I stepped completely out my comfort zone and paired together different patterns, colors, and textures and topped it all off with a very lovely tie {courtesy of the hubsJ}. He’s sweet for sharing. I also did a different eye shadow look than I usually do. TWO colors with a bold eyeliner. I have to say this is one of my fave looks! Ties aren’t just for the boys, I think they give women a very subtle sex appeal and bad girl edge!

What do you guys think of my outfit? It was inspired by Selena Gomez’s photo lay out in a recent Glamour magazine!
