Uniqlo x Tastemade Food & Fashion Event

Alright everyone, I'm super pumped to tell you guys all about my latest adventure.  Last Friday, I hosted Uniqlo x Tastemade's fashion & food event in DC.  It was a really fun (and delicious) shindig in honor of their Tyson's Corner grand opening.  I'm all about Uniqlo so I'm beyond stoked that they're here.  Fellow DMV-ers, make sure y'all head on over to VA this Friday to get your shop on. Anywho, without further ado, let's take a look at some behind-the-scenes snaps from the event. 
Katsuya Fukushima (the head chef at Daikaya) prepping ridiculously nom chicken ramen for the crowd!  Hands down, the BEST ramen I've had in the DMV.  The noodles were chewy perfection, and the broth was to die for.  I was worried it'd be salty, but seasoning was really on point.  If you're in the area and you want solid Japanese food, head on over to Daikaya STAT.
They also served delish karaage sandwiches to peeps!
A special shout out to all the fab bloggers who came out to support! Pictured:  As It Happens, Diego Downtown, and Anchyi Adorned.
In addition to all the yummy noms, Uniqlo handed out free shirts + tanks (!!!!) Y'all know I'm a huge fan of free swag!  Anywho, I hope you enjoyed today's blast.  To follow more of my adventures, add me on snapchat (my handle's @sensiblestylist) and on instagram.  I just started using stories, and I'm officially addicted.  

Feeling Fancy in Lace

Pumped to partner up with Chaser again on SS for today's OOTD.  I was feeling mad girly so I styled a feminine look for you guys.  I centered my latest around a fabulous lace mini dress and paired it with a chic drape cardigan for a simple yet polished ensemble.  I accessorized with a dainty layered necklace and carried my new Chloe crossbody to match.
Other fabulous lace minis (varying price points):

I don't mess around when it comes to shoes.  These gorg heels are everything - super cute yet comfortable!

Neon Lights

Sharing another fab San Fran look with you guys today on Sensible Stylista.  For today's OOTD, I centered my look around a fancy GNO-kinda dress.  I purchased it at a BCBG factory outlet before leaving for Frisco because:

1.  I had been eyeing it for weeks.
2.  It was on sale for $50 (!!!!)
3.  A girl can never have enough dresses...
4...that are neon colored...or any colored for that matter, ha!
I totally thought SF would be warm, but it was actually pretty freakin' cold.  Luckily, I brought my moto jacket with me so it was all (mostly) fine.  As you guys know, I'm all about being sensible and whatnot, so I remix like nobody's business.  IMO, This dress is pretty swanky (think cocktail appropriate), but I tried to dress it down for a more casual look.  I know heels always up the fancy factor, but I live in 'em daily so I just couldn't swap them out.
