A Fashion Fiend // High of 75

These lyrics sum up my last two days. It’s been just beautiful, clear skies, high of 79. I’m starting to embrace the fall and added a scarf to one of my favorite eyelet dresses. Belting my scarf gave me a little shape to my non existent hips. Good trick to have in the bag. Have a great weekend 😉

“And now I’m sunny with a high of 75
Since you took my heavy heart and made it light
And it’s funny how you find, you enjoy your life
When you’re happy to be alive”

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!

A Fashion Fiend // My Woman from Tokyo

TGIF everyone, made it through another week of crazy events and trunk shows! Wore this little number to a boutique party and it was literally the talk of the evening. This dress is so damn chic, I instantly fell in love. I paired it with my my Michael KORS Hamilton, which was perfect because my camera fit in it when I needed to be hands free! No one can tell me not to wear white after Labor Day! Have a great weekend.

A Fashion Fiend // On Repeat

I love these joggers, they’re a perfect transition piece. The fabric made them easy to wear during the hot summer months and the color helps me rotate them in my closet through the fall. I also snagged this asymmetrical, wrap top at Nordstrom’s Rack and fell in love. Another favorite are these new Elaine Turner two-tone heels that I snagged on sale! They go with everything! Hope you guys are getting some nice weather. Fall is my favorite season, and I’ve been preparing my house with all of my Autumn decorations. Smells of pumpkin spice and I couldn’t be happier.

A Fashion Fiend // Short Business

What a week!! Back to business after a whirlwind of events. Now, the industry has pulled out their fall clothes, but Houston has not gotten the memo. It’s still pretty warm and rainy of all things! A total bummer. I mixed in another pair of bermuda shorts to stay nice and cool while running from one place to the next. Off I go!  Have a great weekend.

A Fashion Fiend // A New York State of Mind

Fashion week may be over for the season in NYC but events in H-town ware quickly growing. With the fashion crowd back in town, I have a very busy next 3 weeks ahead.  Fall is here and while the weather is trying to catch up, I’m stuck in a wardrobe transitional phase. This maxi is light enough to keep me from getting over heated during the day and I added this printed shawl as the sun goes down. Can’t wait to get out my boots!! Maybe next week.

A Fashion Fiend // Full Bloom

I added some floral into my usual mundane Monday routine. This matching outfit really brightened up my day. Custom women’s clothing line, eShakti, did an amazing job on these pieces, fits perfectly! Also, any piece with pockets is a hit in my book. Cheers to a good week.
