A Fashion Fiend // High of 75

These lyrics sum up my last two days. It’s been just beautiful, clear skies, high of 79. I’m starting to embrace the fall and added a scarf to one of my favorite eyelet dresses. Belting my scarf gave me a little shape to my non existent hips. Good trick to have in the bag. Have a great weekend 😉

“And now I’m sunny with a high of 75
Since you took my heavy heart and made it light
And it’s funny how you find, you enjoy your life
When you’re happy to be alive”
Relient K

A Fashion Fiend // My Woman from Tokyo

TGIF everyone, made it through another week of crazy events and trunk shows! Wore this little number to a boutique party and it was literally the talk of the evening. This dress is so damn chic, I instantly fell in love. I paired it with my my Michael KORS Hamilton, which was perfect because my camera fit in it when I needed to be hands free! No one can tell me not to wear white after Labor Day! Have a great weekend.

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.

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.
