If you follow me on Twitter then you know I recently had the opportunity to attend the grand opening of online retailer Clothes Hound's flagship store in Raleigh, North Carolina. The event was a two hour media only affair where guests had the opportunity to browse items before the public opening, speak with the store owner and take photos. I was happy to find out Clothes Hound will be carrying French Connection and Free People (two of my favorite brands) as well as a few I had never heard of such as Gentle Fawn, Naked Zebra, and Paper Crown by Lauren Conrad. I went with my roommate Brit! Check out the photos we took below!
|I loved this purse! I have a thing for quilted bags :)|
|I loved the simplicity of the items in the store. Each rack was arranged by color palette. My favorite was this rack of neutrals and blues. The pieces were all affordable ($35-$150), casual enough for everyday, but trendy enough to easily wear in a more formal-appropriate setting. I loved this dress, The color and cut is exactly my style. Simple and classic. Flattering but not over the top. If you're looking for some pieces similar to these, you can use this coupon from Fashion Bug to help you save on some!|

|Theory dress. Cole Haan heels. Michael Kors watch.|
|Love love love these heels!|
|I love a leather hybrid wallet/clutch. I like to carry them around on their own. Large enough that there's no need for a purse :)|
|We went out to dinner after! I got the gourmet chicken pot pie. SO yummy!|
