2 Budget-Friendly Glam Evening Looks, Courtesy of Style Pantry

February may be a short month, but it’s full of exciting occasions. There are dreamy date nights for Valentine’s Day, awards season celebrations and plenty of other reasons for dressing up a little! We asked Folake Kuye Huntoon of the fashion and lifestyle blog Style Pantry to put together some fancy, fashionable looks for a glam night out. Best of all, her stylish selections are affordable and elegant, so you can look red-carpet-ready without the price tag of designer clothes. Check out her luxe looks. 

About Style Pantry

My name is Folake Kuye Huntoon. I run the fashion and lifestyle blog, Style Pantry. Excited to be collaborating with Walmart.com again this year. (Before I dive right in, do you all know you could find red-carpet-worthy pieces on their site?) February is the month of love, thus Greg and I usually seize the opportunity to have more date nights. Every Thursday night is standard for us, however Saturday has become more regular. We have a few go-to date night destinations, but this month we’ve narrowed our choices down to our favorite spots by the beach in Malibu and another top favorite in Laguna Beach. In both cities, the restaurants are right on the water. Great ambience, food, drinks and good music.

Outfit #1

I love this backless midnight blue dress. At night, it sparkles. It’s flirty, flattering and perfect for Malibu’s social scene. The clutch I paired with it (also found on Walmart.com) is equally fascinating and one that will be on high rotation in my closet. The colorful stones and shape stole my little fashion heart.

Outfit #2

For the second look, I chose this embroidered black and white number, which fits for the Laguna beach wine, dine and chitchat scene—an older and more sophisticated crowd (my mother-in-law lives there, so calling Laguna a “more mature crowd” is an inside joke and a nudge to loosen up). In any case, I wanted a punch of color, so this subtle bedazzled purple clutch won. Neither my dress nor my clutch are competing, rather, they are complementing.

I’m a big fan and advocate for mixing high/low pieces and like most, I wasn’t aware that Walmart.com offered both options. My husband’s jaw dropped with each outfit. He couldn’t believe they were from Walmart.com! If you are looking for a stylish, yet budget-friendly number to wear on date night, special occasions or perhaps on the red carpet, do yourself a favor and check Walmart first!
