Parlor Blow Dry Bar’s Ribbon Cutting Celebration

Parlor Dry Bar in Cameron Village | Raleigh, NC

Parlor Dry Bar in Cameron Village | Raleigh, NC

We attended Parlor’s grand opening party last Thursday night.  The stunning space is located at 402 Oberlin Road, Suite 116, in Cameron Village.  We were driving up to the event when we noticed the massive amount of people already lining up outside the salon.  It was evident in that moment that Parlor owners, Emily Cutts and Allison Rohde Conley, have a tremendous amount of support.  It also became clear that locals have been anxiously awaiting the opening of the dry bar’s doors.   The turnout was INCREDIBLE.

The event featured a raffle that included items ranging from local business, Raleigh Denim Workshop to New York-based scarf necklace designer Mignonne Gavigan.  Proceeds from the sale of raffle tickets were donated to the charity “Dress for Success”, a wonderful organization which promotes the “economic independence of disadvantaged women”.  They assist women by providing professional attire as well as offering tools for career development.

Here are some of the amazing raffle items…

When the raffle was beginning, Tiffany turned to me and said, “I never win anything at raffles” to which I replied, “I have never won anything in my whole life.”  Just a few minutes later, raffle numbers were called and I could feel Tiffany nudging me and she exclaimed, “That’s you!”  I had won!

Once we stepped inside the space, we were blown away by the beautiful navy and white aesthetics.  There were so many people inside that it proved difficult to take a picture that illustrates the crisp clean feel of the salon but you can click here for professional photographs on the Parlor website.

We had such a great time and were able to meet so many new people.  In fact, we posted a picture on Instagram and just a few minutes later the DJ (Joe Bunn) turned to us and showed us his phone and there was our picture!  Apparently, he follows our account…too funny!

Obsessed with Stripes

I’m starting to realize that I may have an obsession with stripes.  I think this is my third post with striped dresses.  Hey, I like what I like!

I bought this dress from CWonder several weeks ago.  It’s perfect to wear to work or dress up for a night on the town.  I love a good dress with cute pockets and this dress has them.

DSC_0245I paired the dress with the amazing Michael Kors sandals.

DSC_0255 This necklace is from Mindy Mae’s Market.  They have wonderful statement pieces at affordable prices!DSC_0253My bag is from Tory Burch.  You can carry it as a clutch or cross body and it transitions perfectly from Summer to Fall.

DSC_0262 I wasn’t able to find any of my items online but here are few striped dresses that I love.

A Sea of Royal Blue

Royal Blue is trending as a super hot color for fall, fueled by the fact that it was selected as one of the “it” colors by Pantone earlier this year.  This bold and vibrant color helps to brighten up one’s face and looks incredible when paired with a bright fuchsia lip color such as MAC’s Girl About Town…one of our all-time favorite lip colors.  We are loving this color paired with black for the fall!

This super cute dress from Express is perfect for a GNO or a cocktail-attire wedding.  It would also easily transition into cooler months by pairing it with black opaque tights, black booties and a black leather moto jacket.  The best part is that it is on sale for $55.93 and is still available in all sizes.
