Today at STYLEanthropy, I am sharing with you my first day in Charleston for Charleston Fashion Week. I was among the 9 lucky southern bloggers chosen by Belk to represent them during fashion week in Charleston, South Carolina. Here’s a refresher. I arrived at noon and was given the chance to explore the charming city on my own, before heading to the tents to meet everyone. But the highlight of my first day was an intimate dinner with the bloggers, Belk Team, Nunez PR and the wonderful designer, Trina Turk!

We were taken to the popular Charleston restaurant The Grocery. Y’all, it was amazing. I highly recommend you dine there when you visit the city. Everything I tasted was delicious!
The Belk team did an amazing job with the table setting and Trina Turk approves!
I was seated next to Arkeedah who, by the way, has amazing style! Check out her blog.
When Trina Turk arrived, we obviously took turns to take photos with her. Above (in teal coat) is Ms. Arlene Goldstein, Belk VP President of Trend Merchandising and Fashion Direction, along with her two daughters.
Trina Turk was so amazing! She’s super nice and approachable. Plus, she told me she’s read My Fashion Juice! OMG! I was geeking out inside!
After some introductions and mingling, we started dinner. You must try their Kale salad, guys. It was so flavorful! And then the lamb over pasta was also delicious. I was too full to finish my Panna Cotta dessert but wished I saved room. It was delish!
After dinner, the Trina Turk and Belk team surprised us with an amazing gift – a piece from the Trina Turk Spring 2015 collection. We were all so excited to find out what we got!
Before dinner, Arkeedah was already eyeing the white jumpsuit on the rack. So she was so ecstatic when she saw it inside her bag! And guys, she looked amazing in it.
Thank you so much to Belk and Trina Turk! One of the best dinners I’ve had in my entire blogging life! <3
