A Fashion Fiend // Sriracha

Hey all you weekend warriors! Took a little day trip to a farmers market in a small town and stopped on a super cute farm street along the way. I freaking love Sriracha so much that when I saw this little number at Wet Seal, I made it mine immediately. I was a little concerned because the back of the top is very, very open. No worries though, I put on a corset underneath and voila. Coverage while still being able to see the amazing detail. Hot, Hot, Hot.

Mix It Up

Just another Monday. Welcome to the week, guys. I’m fully back to it. I’m excited to be back in the thick of the blog, it has after all, my home.

I’m totally caught up in mix and matching prints. I love having the option to put so many different items together and having a great outfit. I chose a similar color palette for all my pieces to ensure a smooth transition throughout my ensemble. Perfecto!

In recent news, my little sister, Mootz, has moved to Hawaii over the weekend to start a new chapter in life. We’ll be adding her adventures and island styles to our site. We are so thrilled and excited for her!! Have a good week and please let us know if you have any ideas or places Mootz should visit in Oahu! #amootzinhawaii

Simon Fashion Now

Last Thursday marked the end of New York Fashion week, but here in Houston we had an amazing time at the Galleria hosted Simon Fashion Now fashion event. Myself and other select Houston Fashion Bloggers were invited to the Fashion Now preview event featuring the eight brands that would be showcasing in the Luxury Runway Fashion Show on September 5th. The event was held on the 21st floor of The Westin Oaks Galleria. There we were nibbled on h’orderves and sipped champagne as we watched the mini fashion show. Each brand displayed one look from their collection. A small Q & A followed lead by Simon Malls Style Setter Executive, Jacques Ellis and Stylist, Leslie Rivas. It was an intimate discussion about trend forecasting as well as the Hostess’ personal style favorites.

Last year when I was first settling in Houston, I came across Fashion Blogger, Lynne Gabriel. At the time, she was Simon Malls Style Setter and was hosting a contest sponsored by Cadillac and the Houston Galleria. Grand prize was a week with a brand new Cadillac SRX,VIP treatments and a seat to the Simon Fashion Now Runway Fashion Show. To my surprise, I WON!! Here are a few pics from 2012’s experience.

The Houston Galleria definitely did not disappoint in its effort to change the ice rink into a high fashion runway. While there was no contest this year however, I was all too happy to find myself seated next to Lynne, front row again. Thank you Cadillac, Dancie Perugini Ware Public Relations, Houston Fashion Bloggers and Simon Malls.

Gangster Squad inspired outfit: Jeans- Michael Kors; Top- Target; Shoes- Express; Hat-ALDO; Bag- Zara; Accessories- (Not to) worry beads, Gucci vintage c/o Mom; Gun- Caracal F QS

Saw Gangster Squad (awesome movie, fyi) over the weekend and my Fedora came busting out of my closet! Fedoras add so much style to a simple outfit to give it a more put-together look. I paired it with short cut, cuffed jeans that are currently trending hard, and they provide a relaxed look.

Style these laid back jeans with some sky high or statement heals to glam up. Ballet flats in a striking shade to add a pop of color. Ankle booties are also a warm choice for chilly months.

Petite ladies beware: these jeans can cut off your legs and make you look super boxy. If you want to wear this look, make sure you are adding nude colored heels to lengthen your legs. Also, make sure the jeans you are cuffing are a short length when you buy them. That way, your cuffs are not too fat and you are rolling the same amount of pant leg as taller gals.

Happy weekend!
