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

Teen Style Tuesday- I Heart You

Hey guys! Sweater weather has finally rolled into town and I’m loving it! Again because I refuse to be uncomfortable during the school day, this over sized top is so comfy. Its super soft too! I was rubbing my face with the sleeve all day.  My skinny jeans are also a closet go to and I always feel super cute in my boots! I just so happen to switch my case this weekend to the cutest pink, hearts one and it matched my sweater!

So since its fall, I’m debating dying my hair back to brown and giving my ombre a back seat til summer. What do ya think? Decisions, decisions.

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!

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.

Meet Your 2013 PHXFW Models!

Last Thursday at The Mint in Scottsdale, we attended the Fashion Arizona 2013 Model Announcement party. The model search which took place at the end of June was narrowed down to the top 40 finalists (10 male, 30 female) who will compete in a series of challenges from now until Fashion Week, to see who will ultimately be named 2013 Male and Female Models of the Year. Along with this magnificent title, the winners will also be signed to Agency Arizona! Challenge #1 was broadcasted throughout the venue: the models had to give their all in the “Best Head Shot” look after their Tony & Guy make overs. After all of the top 40 strutted down the catwalk, only one male and one female were chosen as Challenge #1 winners. Congratulations to Sydney Rounsaville and Denis Danicic. Can’t wait to see what the rest of the competition brings!

Our swag bags were oh so nice, including some coupons to Ja’ire and Medium Apparel (two of the Emerging Designers this year), $20 ride credits provided by Uber car service, a full sized No.7 Cosmetics mascara, Green Living and Discover the Phoenix Region Magazines, and a tasty, all natural fruit and nut bar by KIND.

The next model challenge will be held along side the Shop Garment District Event on August 9th. Stay tuned for more details for that and the rest of the events leading up to Phoenix Fashion Week 2013!
