KCL Friday Finds

Happy weekend, guys!! I've got one beautiful small biz to share with you today, and then I'm doing things a bit differently for today's Friday Finds. I'm getting a bit overwhelmed with complimentary goodies this week, and I wanted to take this time to share my favorites with you. I'll be doing an unboxing video featuring the sample items, to post next week! But first, I did want to share one gorgeous shop with you guys. Check it all out below!

Pictured above are some handwoven home goods by Melody Fulone. Her shop is full of unique and beautifully woven wall hangings, pillows, many other home accessories; and even a bit of fiber art jewelry. I really love the neutral colors and the modern designs.

Shop the 2018 Winter Collection. And keep an eye out for a DIY kit for a crochet wall hanging in a few weeks. Melody will also be releasing her spring collection in late March!


This next brand will go into both an unboxing as well as a B…

How to Dress for a Black Tie Holiday Event


During the winter months, you may be invited to any number of black tie events including an evening wedding, a fundraising gala, or formal party. For these events, the attire can often be "black tie". For women that means you should wear a floor-length gown. For an evening black tie event during the fall and winter months, stick with dark or rich colors and heavier fabrics; think lace, beaded, velvet, or satin as opposed to a light chiffon.

For the holidays, some sparkle is always a good idea. In fact, some formal holiday events may call for "festive black tie" on the invite. Go for either a gown with some sparkle or a rich holiday color like emerald or red. A "festive black tie" event that is work-related calls for a more modest gown - no high slits, and nothing  strapless or with spaghetti straps. A gown with a modest neckline, like the two pictured above, is something you could wear to both a wedding or a more corporate setting. A more simple, solid-colored dress like the Eliza J Women's Beaded Cap Sleeve Gown pictured above is also a great versatile gown. You could dress it down for the ballet with minimal jewelry and more natural makeup, or dress it up with formal heels, an up-do with bold makeup, and a jeweled statement necklace.

Don't worry about being over-dressed for a black tie event. It's the perfect opportunity to wear a beautiful gown with some added drama like beading, a bold print, a full skirt, or an interesting neckline.
