My Style Challenge: Grease Lightning Behind the Scenes

I was going to a NOVA Fashion Week Behind the Scenes event on Friday and wanted to look unique and chic! One thing I've been meaning to work on is hair... since getting my pixie I've styled it almost exactly the same every day. Well, no more! Since I'm crap with product and styling, I decided to go to the other extreme and look to Danny Zuko for some hairspiration!

Translates to..
Not too bad! I was so proud of myself for identifying another place where I was hiding out in my comfort zone and then taking the leap out of it :D

I'm wearing: ASOS blazer, Sweetees top, J. Crew pants, Marc Jacobs misplaced heels, South clutch from a show giftbag. Jewelry includes: Earrings from Anthropologie, necklace and jeweled cuff courtesy of South Moon Under, spike bracelet courtesy of Stella & Dot, mixed metal bracelet from CUSP, leather wrap from Banana Republic, and Banana Republic stacking rings, Tina Tang band and old gold band from mom.
Emily & Allie were ready to jump up on a car and sing with me! I also saw DC fashintonians Deb and Whitney!

The pop-up styling event featuring a behind the scenes look at what goes on backstage before a runway... I didn't see any meltdowns and there were definitely more people eating cupcakes than you'd see all fashion week, but it was fun to see models get styled and to hand out with friends! Best of all was checking out the great fashion people brought:
Mixed prints and sequins!
Love the flowiness here, and look, more seqiuns!
Yes to a summer color palette! White + primary color = fabulushness!
