If you’re reading this then you know that I am NOT one to blend in with a crowd! I always like to make a big splash wherever I go. And it’s no exception when I go to the gym either. So when my gal pal Patty from Style By Patty told me about these new bright & bold leggings from Personal & Co Activewear, I was ecstatic to partner up with them!
I was invited to speak about Fall Fashion trends for residents and local fashionistas at Uptown at Post Oak Luxury Apartments. I was excited to share all of my MUST HAVE looks for the cooler season.
I chose to showcase special one of a kind pieces from Azuz Boutique. If you have not been there, you are truly missing out. The boutique is in the heart of Rice Village. When I first reached out to Jacki (one of the owners) to see if she would be interested in participating in the panel, she was thrilled! We really hit it off great and she was more than happy to help me pick out some killer looks.
Jacki and Penny opened their store about a year ago and they pride themselves in having a large selection of unique and chic pieces from designers such as Tibi, AS by DF, Bec & Bridge, and much more.
For the panel, I decide to invite my good gal pals and fellow fashion experts Lisa from A Chic Effect and Jillian from Jillian’s Closet. I felt that both of these ladies brought a different perspective on fall trends. Our styles are so different, so it made for a great variation for our audience.
Overall, the event was great, we had food, drinks and well-dressed people to share it all with. Thanks so much for the great time and thanks to the ladies of Azuz for our looks of the night.
Also, a huge thanks to my photographer of the night, Jared from JAFusion
Recently I decided to raise my blogging stakes and have a photoshoot! This shoot was a fun way for me to showcase my style & fashion. It’s also a way for you to get to know me better. Now, I haven’t received all my photos just yet but I figured why not release some teaser shots! I want to say thanks to Jared Li from JA Fusion Photography, Albany from Iriswings and Nikki from Nikki Lea Beautyy for making this such a creative and fun process!
There was a sea of well-dressed fashionistas this past weekend at Houston’s Premium Outlet Stores. And no, it wasn’t JUST due to Tax Free weekend. Style expert and TV personality George Kotsiopoulos was in town to promote Gap Factory’s “Exclusively Styled” campaign. This new campaign shows off Gap Factory’s 2014 spring collection. These trends and styles are at value pricing, making it easy for anyone to afford.
During the event, I got the chance to chat with the style guru himself. He shared a lot of great tips on upcoming fashions for the fall. “It’s all about bright colors,” he said. “Try to keep things fresh with layered accessories and pop-art prints. Oh, and don’t forget a good pair of white distressed jeans (like the one here) from Gap Factory.”
George also mentioned that when it comes to fashion, it’s all about the fit and finding the items that work best for your body type. And speaking of body types, a little tip for those up and coming fashion stylists, George said “to be a stylist, you must be able to dress all body types. Anyone can dress a size 0 model. It’s about having the eye to know what works for any man or woman.
P.S. When asked how he liked Houston he said, “I like it. I just came back from Dallas and it seems a little bit prettier here. Dallas is a little crazy and it’s different, but I really do like it here.”
One of my favorite things to do in my down time is scouring my favorite blogs for fashion and beauty tips. I have a couple that are my go-to’s for everything fashion, beauty, and technology! Feel free to pay them a visit and let me know what you think of them.
