Looking for something...

a Night to Remember...

I got a call last Thursday morning from a frantic friend, a very good friend with just a couple days to prepare for a once in a lifetime opportunity; She had been been invited to walk the red carpet with a dear friend of hers at the 17th Annual Screen Actor's Guild (SAG) awards on Sunday night (original airing 01.30.11). Wow!
With just a short amount of time to get ready, two potential dresses on loan, and a Friday appointment for jewels from the infamous "Jacob the Jeweler" we --yes, we, i was going too!.. but only in spirit-- needed fab shoes and a bag ASAP! I got right to work! I hit all my favorite sites and started pulling together looks --I mean full on head to toe looks in Excel-- for her BIG night. 
I live for this stuff and I found so many great options for her so how could I not share some of my favorite looks with you! And when you continue reading see the final SAG red carpet look...

Katie is a member of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., a high-level executive assistant at a multimedia company in New York City, and was engaged to her fiance Terrence on August 9, 2010 ; if I do say so myself, it was a fairy tale, very romantic proposal at the end of her 50 day cycle across North America. Katie is also a close friend and trusted confidant of Tracy's.
It was such a pleasure and so much fun to style Katie for the 17th Annual SAG awards! Love you girl, keep doing you, and I'm so proud to have you as a Soror and friend!
