It was quite the fashion scene at Artista when Dec My Room took over for its annual fall luncheon. While it was difficult to pinpoint a favorite among the fashionistas attending, Holly Waltrip was certainly among the standouts for, at the very least, her glittering Marc Jacobs handbag that changed from sapphire blue to silver as light in the room struck it in different ways.
Her Peter Pilotto dress from Sloan Hall reflected deep jewel tones and her Dries Van Noten shoes were an astonishing match to the dress. Waltrip allowed that she had bought the one-of-a-kind, multi-colored wedges off the runway in New York six years ago.
She accessorized with a multitude of slim bracelets, some from her own line HW Designs.

Winter Ball underwriting chair Jacquie Baly welcomed a flock of fashionistas to Kendra Scott in CityCentre for her annual salute to the benefit for the Crohn's & Colitis Foundation and none stood out more than event planner Ella Markovsky.
For the cocktail gathering, she wore a Michael Kors dress from Neiman Marcus, accessorized with a Fendi belt from Fendi and Casadei sandals from Neiman Marcus. In case you missed them, her sunglasses (on top of her head) were by Versace.
A native of Ukraine, Markovsky has lived in the United States for 23 years. She is founder and CEO of Ella Productions, an event planning company which she describes as offering a 4D experience — dine, drink, dance, dream.
