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!

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?!!

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.

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.

Happy Shopping!

Teen Style Tuesday- Blk & Blu

Hey guys!! I hope you all had a super fun Halloween! Since I went all out the weekend prior with my costume, on Halloween night, my friends and I just wore subtle hippie costumes and hit a few houses for candy. Pretty low key but still a blast! So it finally cooled down and I can bust out my boots! What, what! I love boots almost as much as my TOMS. I choose a pretty monochromatic outfit so I slipped into a pair of black boots to contrast the blue hues. Pretty easy and super cute!
