On Philadelphia, Style

Cherry Bomb

April 18, 2016

Kat and I got to play dress-up last night for Spoonful Magazine’s amazing Spring Community Dinner. Held in the Stotesbury Mansion in Rittenhouse, the venue itself was absolutely incredible. Perfect for an intimate wedding if you’re in the market for wedding venues or what not.
Kat was a last minute plus one, and she found this amazing vintage black dress thanks to Ritual Ritual in NoLibs. I’m wearing a dress I bought a few months ago off of ASOS followed with a bright red, matte lip from Colour Pop called “Creeper.”
The event itself brought out some of Philadelphia’s influencers for a night of conversation, a delicious multi-course dinner and live jazz music. I made some new friends, caught up with some old friends and had quite the “ball” of a time. With the theme of “Love Affairs,” this dinner was absolutely perfect. We took a few photos from the night below, but all the good behind the scenes could be found on my Snapchat. If you don’t follow me already – my Snapchat is @JogaMel88!
Big thank you to Spoonful Magazine for hosting yet another beautiful gathering. How was your weekend?
