Insights on Literature, etiquette, and Beauty from a Catholic wife and mom

clothing rack of Ivy City Co dresses

One of my favorite brands to represent as a creator is Ivy City Co.. Wearing and sharing their beautiful dresses is a joy and honor. I met the founders a couple of years ago in Waco during the Silobration festival at Magnolia, and they are incredible women! They truly care about each woman who puts on their dresses and that love was evident in their warmth and kindness shown when I met them. 

A few weeks ago, I received an invitation to attend their first fashion show. I made all of the arrangements and attended with my dear friend, Jess, this past week. The location, The Snowpine Lodge in Alta, Utah, was stunning! We arrived a day before the fashion show and spent our time hiking, swimming, and exploring the grounds. 

I wore THIS DRESS to the fashion show and my friend wore THIS DRESS. After meeting other ambassadors and eating the most delicious food, we listened to the Piano Guys perform. Then the show began! 

Ivy City Co. is releasing the most beautiful winter line, yet even more stunning were the women wearing the clothes on the runway! It was incredibly inclusive and it made me so proud to represent this brand.

Here are some of my favorite moments of the show! Thank you Ivy City Co. for inviting me – I had such a wonderful time.
