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 // 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?!!

#onthecusp at Neiman Marcus

Happy Monday, everyone! Last Thursday marked the Neiman Marcus’ CUSP department showcase and fashion show. It was a fun and busy night of Tom Collins drinks, cupcakes, and hor’duerves. The fashion show featured spring’s hottest trends and the whole floor showcased the CUSP designers and their latest pieces. As a member of the Houston Tidbits Front Row program, I was treated to a grade A swag bag and of course, a front row seat on the runway. Black and white is still ruling as a trend and headed right on into the warmer months. The night was so fun and it was I loved seeing the newest fashions.

Teen Style Tuesday- Birthday Edition!

Hi friends!! So sorry for the delayed post but this weekend was my birthday!! My parties started off with a surprise limo pick up from school and hibachi dinner with my best friends! It was so amazing, all swag in the limo, I felt so cool! Day 2 was shopping at the gigantic Galleria mall. It was exhausting but I got a ton of new clothes thanks to my birthday money 😉 My last party was on St. Patty’s day, where my parents rented out a whole theatre for my friends and I to have a private movie screening! It was amazing to have an entire theatre for my party!! The rest of the week is spring break so I’ll be back with my vacation update on Tuesday! Hope you’re having a great week!

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.
