Orange You Maxine?

I recently learned that the Queen City Style won 
this year's Charlotte Magazine Voters' Choice Award for Best Blog.
I'm still not really quite sure how this happened, 
but I am super excited, stoked, grateful and on and on some more.

I also feel like the pressure is really on now.
If you voted for the Queen City Style, thank you SO much!
If you are reading this right now, thank you!!
I can't tell you how much I appreciate you being here.
I am looking forward to my first BOB Awards party this Thursday night.
If you are in the Queen City, you should come!
Here's how to get your tickets.

To celebrate, most wonderful man in the world and I ventured up to the
NC Music Factory for some good eats at Bask on Seaboard.
Chances are if you enjoy good live music, you've ventured to the 
NC Music Factory, but if by chance you have not, you really must.
The location serves home to a vast assortment of excellent restaurants,
hip new bars-whether it's brew ha ha or cocktails you're thirsting-
and the Queen City's hottest spot for listening to live music.

Hangin' with my new friends, Brody & Choch, and crew.
If old school hip hop with a smooth twist is your thing, have a listen.

  7. Oh goodness I am LOVING that shade of orange! Such a perfect pop for summer without being too overbearing. And the belt that goes with it is just to die for. I've considered getting a maxim dress but I always wonder- isn't it too hot in the summer?
