Pgh Fall Market + Event

This isn’t the first time I’ve said this & it definitely won’t be my last – I love the creative community here in Pittsburgh.  Every time I attend an event or immerge myself into the blogging/styling world I am amazed with the goal-oriented, power houses that I meet.  Today was no exception…

This afternoon I attended an event hosted by Wildfire Pgh – Pittsburgh’s first boutique market & virtual look book.  Seven local boutiques filled the brick patio of a local brewery with their fall fashions, accessories and handmade goods.  I was not prepared for the chilly outdoor temps but that problem was quickly solved when I purchased a fringe hem poncho from Penny Layne Boutique (pictured below).

I always find myself leaving these events feeling inspired, grateful, and proud…Inspired by the people I meet, their stories and their goals, Grateful for the friends I’ve made and the support I receive, and Proud of myself for starting The Wexford Housewife, for becoming a part of this creative community & being willing to change and grow.

I’ve included links to the boutiques that were at today’s event so you can shop their latest styles & fall looks.

Wine Women & Shoes

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.

Stitch Fix Kids Reveal

As a mom and a Stitch Fix stylist I was so excited when I heard we were launching a kids collection. I wanted to be a part of it & luckily was chosen to join the Kids Styling Team.  The merchandise is colorful, on-trend and full of fun surprises like zipper details and interactive appliques.  I finally had the chance to schedule little man his first Fix and I am happy to say everything exceeded my expectations.

I love working for this Company!  They went out of their way to make sure our Kids Collection was focused 100% around the kiddos.  Not only are the clothes super soft & easy to wear, but there was a fun sheet of stickers included with his Fix and the box everything arrived in can be turned into a spaceship.  Besides the shoes, which we normally have a hard time with, everything was true to size compared to the other brands he wears.
