Last week I had the opportunity to attend Wine Women & Shoes – a “two-part signature event series (that) creates an enhanced atmosphere of giving where community-minded, philanthropic women (and a few good men) gather to sip, shop, savor, and support a worthy cause in an exciting, chic and innovative way.”
I wasn’t sure what to expect since this was my first time attending the event, but I can honestly say that I was blown away. As I entered the ballroom at the Rivers Casino I was offered a glass of champagne from one of the “Shoe Guys” and encouraged to browse the numerous designer vendors including local clothing, jewelry and sweets boutiques. Before being seated for dinner I enjoyed wine tasting & finger foods while mingling with other like-minded women.
During the seated dinner there was a fabulous fashion show showcasing clothing from Pure Barre and Serendipity Boutique followed by a live auction and handcrafted desserts. The benefactor for this years’ event was the Pittsburgh Emergency Medical Foundation which is committed to providing financial support for research and educational endeavors in the field of emergency medicine.

For the event I decided to wear a little black dress, because, well… you can never go wrong with a LBD. This petite wraparound flounce flare dress from Loft was originally $89.50 but I picked it up on sale for 30% off. I paired it with statement heels and dangly earrings for a chic, romantic-inspired look that kept me comfortable & stylish.
As always – comfortable & effortless housewife style xoxx
