Good Morning! I’m sharing my final TBSCon outfit with you today, and it was the dress I wore on night one for the Welcome Cocktail party.   This dress was also Rent the Runway, but I found it on sale for only $90!!  It was such a fun dress and perfect for a summer cocktail party.  These pictures were taken on the famous Rainbow Row in Charleston!

When looking for a dress, I knew I wanted something fitted and a fun bright color! This orange cocktail dress was exactly what I had in mind.  It is fitted, but the material has stretch to it.  I REALLY like the added stretch because it made it easier to move around in, and I didn’t feel so stiff like in some fitted dresses.  The cut of the neckline was perfect to show off a little shoulder.  The laser cut detailing down the middle gave this dress just the slightest stand out detail I wanted.  I opted out of wearing a necklace because of the laser cut details.  Instead I grabbed for these large gold earrings.  Whenever I pass on a necklace, I feel like big earrings are a must!  I really felt this dress was a statement in itself, so I went with more of my gold basic jewelry.  From my hoop drop earrings to a little more simple bangles, I really wanted to be sure nothing took away from this dress.

The Welcome Party was so fun!  It was the first opportunity to meet the fellow bloggers attending the conference.  I met blogger pals who I only know on the internet side, so it was great to meet them in person.  Last week, all the conference pictures arrived in my inbox and I can’t wait to share some of them with y’all and more details about what all went on at the conference!  Stay tuned because that will be up in the next week or so.

Thanks for swinging by today and have a fabulous week!
