Wednesday night I was asked to do an “Instagram Takeover” for the Elaine Turner Instagram Account {check it out here} as they hosted the big Opening Party for their Upper East Side Store located on 82nd Street and Madison Avenue. Excited to welcome them to the Big Apple, I threw on a pair of Elaine Turner Renata Cork Heels and snapped the night away!

Rosé Champagne, Eleni’s custom Texas cookies, and a note-worthy list of NYC socialites were accompanied by endless pops of bright colored Elaine Turner accessories.

So what were the real deets behind the event? Elaine Turner, a chic Texas designer and founder of brand Elaine Turner {known for her fabulous handbags and shoes} celebrated the opening of her seventh boutique, the first in New York. Hosted by Purses & Pursenalities co-chairs Amy Hoadley, Karen Klopp, Kathy Prounis, Betsy Pitts, Mindy Fortin and Tiffany Moller, the party was the place to be for glam Upper East side socialites! In line with Elaine’s mission to give back, ten percent of proceeds went to the Madison Square Boys & Girls Club.

So what did I wear to this FAB event? I showed off my 23 week pregnant Baby Bumpy in a BCBG Maxazria Lace Crochet Mini Dress {non-maternity… just tight!}, a Current/Elliott Leopard Print Denim Jacket, a set of Gorjana Batik Hoop Earrings, two Elaine Turner Bangles: the Kim Bangle Bracelet in Gold and the Caitlin Bangle Bracelet in Gold, Elaine Turner Renata Cork Heels {beyond comfortable!}, and to finish it off, the Elaine Turner Angelina Distressed Metallic Minaudiere.
