Leather and Stripes

Remember when I mentioned that I was going out of my way to wear my Pitaya tunic? What about when I said I couldn’t stop wearing my new Naturalizer boots? Can you guess what I wore to Blogger’s Night Out when I was too sleep-deprived from Saint Louis Fashion Week to manage matching a dress to tights?

Blogger’s Night Out began with happy hour shopping at local boutique CLR-MNSTR. The shop — which operates under the tag “be the best or die” — has changed storefronts since I last visited, and I absolutely love this new location. Never fear, downtowners, it’s still on Wash. Ave., quite close to where we headed for dinner and drinks: Hiro Asian Kitchen. The store features women’s attire, jewelry, vintage and more; deal-loving me, I was obviously glued to the sale rack. Bonus points: CLR-MNSTR is affordable as-is, meaning the sale rack is practically free. Not free, but pretty damn close. I bought an adorable clearance top (take a peek here!) and discovered a tasty treat called pineapple vodka. Scary good. 

Alas, I was so focused on pineapple vodka and sale racks that I missed a few must-haves. Peek at my CLR-MNSTR favorites below.

Black and white attire from a shop pronounced Color Monster? Irony!

We hit the hay early after Blogger’s Night Out because the next morning featured even more STLFW madness. Stay tuned for the Midwest Fashion Conference and a full look at my new CLR-MNSTR top!
