A Fashion Fiend // Fashion Law

Hey guys! I wanted to share with you a fashion seminar taking place this weekend in Arizona during the Business of Fashion Series presented by Phoenix Fashion Week. This is an important opportunity to talk face to face with an attorney about your brand.

I highly suggest taking this course, especially for bloggers. Most of us run our own blogs and just have no clue about people using our pictures, taking our ideas, etc. We need to know how to safeguard ourselves. Talia’s training is the best legal advice you will ever get and straight from an attorney’s mouth. Talia is captivating, extremely intelligent and will empower you to promote and grow your brand with outstanding confidence. Looking forward to seeing all of our AZ peeps there!

Phoenix associate, Talia J. Offord will present at Phoenix Fashion Week on Saturday, October 4th.  Ms. Offord’s presentation is titled “Fashion Law: Protecting Your Brand.” This presentation, one of the more popular topics at the event, will highlight the legal aspects of brand management. These aspects include trademark, intellectual property and copyright issues. The goal of her presentation is to provide practical advice to attendees wishing to establish a legally strong brand. ~Lewis Brisbois Bisgaard & Smith

Teen Style Tuesday // Homecoming

Hi guys! I have missed you all so much! This year has been so crazy already! Adjusting to high school has been harder that I thought! I am loving every minute of it though, and have even made some amazing new friends!

Last weekend was my HS Homecoming dance! I was asked by a good friend from last year a few weeks prior and was so thrilled to go! The day of the dance I did all of my primping before we had dinner with our huge group!! My bestie, Olivia’s date was my dates twin brother so you know we had a freaking blast! Talk about awesome times. Best dance so far this year! Hope you all are having a fab time in school as well! HS swim team practice starts today, wish me luck! Have a breezy week and enjoy the weather!

A Fashion Fiend // Relaunch Party with Chef Roble’

Hello hip people! Last week I had the honor of attending Bravo tv’s, Chef Roble’s, perfume launch party hosted at Carrie Ann Boutique. The night was filled with bloggers and stylists from all around town, that were able to sample Roble’s perfume while sipping on wine and chatting with the one and only Carrie Ann Sanders. The store offered a 20% off special that night, so snagging a few dresses I had my eye on was all too easy. The night was a huge success; the Chef has got it down in the scent department. World famous chef, television star, scent creator, what will Roble do next?!!

Spring events are in filling up my evenings lately like no other. I’ve been so excited about all of the happenings that I had two in one night! It was awesome though, so much fashion and style. My kind of night! The first event was at David Peck’s boutique: Heroes and Handbags event featured the newest clutches and handbags by Houston artist Hanh Tran. Twenty percent of the proceeds from the evening’s sales benefitted Heroes for Children.
