Featured: Fashion and Fiats

This week I was a featured blogger at the Fall, Fashion and Fiat Networking event hosted by  Helfman Fiat and The Brand Elixir. Myself and 5 other Houston Fashion Bloggers talked to guests about cool weather styling and answered questions about trends. I wore an embellished sweatshirt and dressed it up with a cobalt blue skirt and heels. I love this cozy and chic trend that was reinvented this year during NYFW.

We started the evening with lite bites and drinks. A DJ set a high energy vibe as we took in the beautiful artwork crafted by local Houston Artists, I was especially impressed with the work of  Elizabeth Cencini. Her romanticized paintings take everyday photos of real people and turns them into timeless works of art. I got a chance to talk with her and asked her what exactly was her artistic style. Elizabeth described her art as ” the way a woman is in love”. Soft lines and carefully balanced hues in each one of her pieces give her work a gentle, easy on the eyes view. I loved her take and understated changes in each of her paintings. She makes subtle changes small areas of the paintings like background and creates a piece of art that will last a lifetime.

The fiats were the stars of the night. Their sleek body and array of features really made these cars a perfect addition to the fashion themed evening. Also on display was a Fiat we were all asked to sign and the Abarth convertible was a crowd favorite. The Gucci model is tribute to how perfectly chic these cars are and obviously, is my favorite.
