Do you dread packing for a place you’ve never been before? Are you never sure what to wear to what event? You are not alone. That’s why we brought in local fashion blogger Evin Elizabeth to debunk the myths and demonstrate the tips to get you ready for NVFF. Learn how to blend in with the locals, stand out on the red carpet and always be #FestDressed.
What a week it’s been! And let me tell you, you’ve all looked fabulous! I mean, really, your fashion game has been on point! So now that it’s the last day of the festival and you have a few more screenings to see, a wine pavilion or two to visit and a wrap party to attend don’t drop the ball. You owe it to your Instagram to go out with a bang… a fashion bang, that is.
I know after a nights of cocktail dresses and heels you might be thinking, “There’s nothing I want more than my PJs and some fuzzy socks,” but ladies this is Napa and we are going out on a high note! With all the events happening on the Riverfront today you have to make time in your schedule to stop in to Cake Plate and treat yourself to a look that will turn heads tonight.
The boutique is not only amazingly decorated, but its owners Paige and Lindsay Smith have the racks stocked with brands like Trina Turk and MILLY (the two designers I’m wearing!) for cocktail attire and Paige denim if a great pair of black jeans is more your style. Plus, some of the most unique accessories I’ve seen in the Valley to really finish your look.
For tonight, embrace the Wrap Party’s Peruvian inspiration with these bright dresses, amazing ruffle
details and great patterns! “These dresses are statement pieces… you don’t need a lot of accessories because everything is in there,” said Paige. So, although, I am
a big proponent of a new pair of shoes you won’t be stuck without a complete look because those black heels or metallic sandals you already own will pair so well with any one of these styles.
And remember just because it’s the middle of November doesn’t mean we have to stick to somber colors. But if you really want something to wear tonight and to Thanksgiving dinner, Paige shared a few merlot-colored styles with me that are to die for!
So in between your culinary demo and the next film you plan to attend take your whole crew in to do a little late weekend retail therapy. “That’s the most special part for me, a lot of the times I have a mother and a daughter in side-by-side dressing rooms,” Paige shared. There truly will be something for everyone in your group. Plus, what’s better than picking out a new piece and immediately sharing it with the crowd tonight?
I’ll be looking out for all of your great picks!
All three dresses, the rose gold bag and the embellished collar necklace are available now at Cake Plate!
