A Fashion Fiend // David Peck-Fashion Meets Hospitality

I wore this oxblood monochrome outfit to David Peck‘s show debuting his Fall/Winter 2014 collection. I love the deeper colors that get incorporated into my wardrobe as the weather cools down. Monochrome is a tricky style for me as I’m always trying to pop in color. But when I saw this matching crop and skirt- I went for it!

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.

My second event of the evening was held at Up restaurant in Highland Village. Presented by Houston Magazine, Men of Style was the theme of the night. We mingled and noshed on tasty apps with local fashionistas and dapper gents. It was the place to be for Houston’s Fashion Elite.

Pantone Color of the Year 2014 and Holiday Sales!

Pantone has just announced the new color of year 2014, ORCHID!! If the 2014 Spring runway shows were a forecast to this gorgeous hue then I am not surprised at all. This tone was used in so many beautiful floral prints during the shows. Moving away from the rich Emerald of 2013, I think Orchid will be a refreshing color for the year. With purple and pink undertones, Orchid is a delightful color to wear and flatters a wide variety of skin tones. It is feminine without being overwhelmingly girly. This flirty tone can be paired with bold red to sister hues like lavender. It also accents the popular color, olive, as well as turquoise. Orchid can also be used as a subtle change in place of plain old neutrals.
