Camo, Pleats, & The Cooper-Young Festival

Cooper-Young-Fest-Memphis-According-To-QThis weekend’s cold front didn’t stop me from enjoying The Cooper-Young Festival.  The chill and a little peek of the sun were the perfect setting for a Saturday afternoon stroll through midtown Memphis.

According to Q, Pairing ‘tough’ and feminine is unexpectedly chic! The toughness of camo with feminine pleats was the perfect mix for a fall festival!  Next up, leather and lace!

Yours in Stilettos,
