STYLE STORY: Buzz City



This Saturday, I had the pleasure of covering the Hoops and Heels event hosted by the staff of the Charlotte Bobcats (soon to be the Charlotte Hornets again, hence the outfit).  I love how the event infused women in heels with the idea of increasing our knowledge of the game.  Approximately 150 women alike, some in heels and some not (sad face - lol) enjoyed a cocktail hour/wine tasting followed by an inspiring presentation by Stephanie Ready on the fundamentals of the game.  It was such an empowering moment to hear of all the women that have made an impact in the arena of men's and women's basketball.  We even had the opportunity to watch the players warm ups court side, followed by the game viewing in a luxury suite.  It was a great social gathering and I'm certain that the ladies in attendance had a swell time.


Now, on to the fashion and style . . . . I snagged this AMAZING teal leather suit (with shoulder pads - YES)  in a little vintage shop while traveling and all I could scream was YES, YES, YES!  The color is out of this world and a rare find.  Because I wanted to play on the original and returning color scheme of the Charlotte Hornets I decided to accent the look with purple by locating this purple lace top at my local TJ Maxx and these Bakers shoes that I've had forever but have only worn once.

    1. Thanks Adie, I too love leather and lace! I will not host my annual fashion show, Mode Noir, this year, but I'll be out and about during CIAA doing street style interviews for my style media, Charlotte Street Style.
