Hello everyone! Welcome to Blessed and Fabulous!
I am sharing with you guys today the outfit I wore this year to the 59th Annual Linly Heflin Scholarship Fashion Show. Of course, my look includes ruffles and the ever so popular trend this fall– Leopard booties. I am living for this trend this season.

“Educate a woman and you educate a family”
The Linly Heflin Foundation chooses bright, young women across the state of Alabama and grants them scholarships. This gives so many women the opportunity to receive a higher education! That’s so incredible! Each year, the Linly Heflin Unit hosts their annual fashion show to raise money for said scholarships and for the past two years, I have had the great opportunity of attending! It’s always a great night.
All designs come from Gus Mayer Birmingham, with this year’s featured designer, Haute Hippie. Now, let’s talk about a beautiful collection! The overall influence for the collection was bohemian, yet flapper and classy. It was stunning. There were so many pieces that I just needed to get my hands on. Below are two of my favorites from the night.
I am thankful for getting to attend this show each year. I always get my mom to tag along, the perfect opportunity for a GNO!
I am about to give you another reason for Target to be your favorite place, as it is mine! WhoWhatWear has now developed a collection with Target, making their items accessible more easily to everyday women! Me, being the young me, am completely obsessed with the ladies at WhoWhatWear, and snatched up this perfect piece the moment I saw it.
The main outfit piece is the ever so pretty ruffle dress. To make it this already pretty dress even prettier, there is a neck tie bow. The outer layer is sheer, but there is a slip underneath the dress to accommodate. Three tiers of ruffled goodness.
This dress is under $40.
What more do I even need to say? That is a steal!
I have the ruffle dress paired with my favorite leopard print booties, which are also from Target, grey leather jacket, and blush pink fur purse. The booties are also under $40! I found this leather jacket in the back of my closet. I think it was purchased about 3-4 years ago but it’s still in pristine condition! I have tagged similar options below! The faux fur crossbody is too perfect for the colder season. With a chain strap, it is also comfortable to wear and versatile for any type of occasions.
This dress is beautiful in its simplicity so minimal jewelry is needed. A pretty pair of hoop earrings or studs would compliment it well. I have it paired with my gold Kate Spade rhinestone bangle. It is currently on sale for $33! It was given to me last Christmas as a gift from my brother.
