I’m so excited to share the photos from the Creative Collective Launch Party! Yvonne Rock took our lovely photos, and you can see all of them over on Glitter Guide today! I’ll be sharing a few of my favorites here.

So the 11 of us know a lot of people. And to even get a fraction of the people we wanted to invite into our space in one day, we split it up into two events — a brunch and an evening event. Yes, I totally changed for the evening event. Here I’m wearing a Solace London Lane top. Yes it’s totally see-through. No, my husband didn’t love that part. Oh and did I mention it’s practically backless? I’m obsessed. I paired it with Emerson Thorpe Emilia Pants and Joie Jaclyn Heels (mine are gold from last year).

Ridgewells Catering really went the extra mile (although I think they do that at every event!) with the food and drinks. For the morning brunch we had a mimosa bar, green juice, and milk and donuts among other snacks. The milk and donuts were a hit. I’m pretty sure I win for eating the most donuts, and not drinking any milk.

Because it’s nearly impossible to get all of us together at the same time, we are missing a few people in both all of the shots, but oh well! This is outside our building before the morning brunch. I am wearing the Clover Canyon dress I could not take my eyes off (bodycon version), and lucky for me it went on sale and fit like a glove. Win win. My silver shoes are old ZARA.

The infamous Holly Chapple graciously created the flowers for our event. We got to continue enjoying them for another week! Absolutely gorgeous. That is my painting I’m Blushing in the background.

We had to get Lola — our studio pooch into the photos (mom is Abby Jiu). She did attend both parties and was quite the hit. Apparently she’s got a thing for balloons, and we had about 200 of them in the back room — so that was entertaining.

Make sure you head over to Glitter Guide to see all of the photos!
