This year Phoenix Fashion Week debuted their show on October 3rd at Talking Stick Resort in Scottsdale, Arizona. The moment I stepped out of the elevator and into the Style Villa, I immediately was in fashion heaven. The Villa was in full swing with my favorite pieces from Shawl Dawls and The Shine Project and many others. As I found my seat I could feel the energy from the audience and the PFW staff. I am a part time people watcher at fashion shows and my part time job was in full effect that evening:). Everyone in the audience was on their style “A” game and looked stunning.

Fashion By Robert Black started out the show very strong with his colorful vintage collection that had a western theme that looked amazing on the runway. His styling touch was on point with every model that came out. Below are some of my favorites!

The Shawl Dawl’s collection is so very different from last year….the word I would use for this years collection is FIERCE! Their theme was “The Dawl Factory,” all of the models were wearing nude stockings and body suits underneath the shawls to make them look more “dawl,” like with black smokey eyes and nude lips….which I loved. The makeup and hair tied all of the looks together and I absolutely loved their show!

Black Russian Label’s designs were very different and artistic and nothing that you can get in boutiques pieced together. Standing alone I would definitley wear her pieces but the way that some of the looks were put together, I wouldn’t generally wear on a daily basis (more so for a special occassion). I feel like I would see her looks pieced this way in New York or LA.

Brandon McDonald from Project Runway season 12 showcased his newest collection and reminded me of Spring Paradise in Fiji. I pretty much wanted everything from his collection especially the nude ruffle two-piece suit. LOVE! LOVE! LOVE!

Linden’s collection was very soft and had a free spirited feel. Loved the light denim look paired against lighter colors and patterns. My favorite look was the denim and plaid jumpsuit (for those of you that know me, know that I own close to 15 jumpsuits and 30 rompers). Her looks can easily be transitioned to your closet and accessorized with simple pieces like a delicate gold necklace.

I wish it was still summer after seeing Dolcessa’s collection on the runway! I loved each and every one of her suits; the color combinations were on point and complemented each other and the headpieces by Melis Accessories were a perfect touch (can’t wait to get my hands on one!) Some of her pieces have already been seen in Sports Illustrated Magazine.

The energy from the first model that walked out on stage in Loin Cloth LA looks was contagious! All of the models seemed to really like what they were wearing because these guys were strutting their stuff and their jewels were a perfect fit by Clutch Jewelry! Loin Clothes pieces were very colorful and definitely stand out in men’s apparel. As a personal stylist it is sometimes hard to find bold and fun prints for men. I am excited to see what boutiques in Arizona will carry their brand because I can think of a few clients that would love their looks.

I had to add this picture of the two designers because I love their expressions and how happy they are! Congrats guys I am so happy for you and all of your accomplishments…A Penny And A Plan!

I was extremely impressed with designer Medium Apparel! When I saw the first woman model walk onto the runway I was excited. He took a chance and did a great job doing it. I loved the high waist a-lined leather looking skirt. I would buy that skirt in a heartbeat and can pair with just about anything in my closet; I also like how he coupled the look with a black graphic tee.

Over all the 2nd night of Phoenix Fashion Week was a huge success. I had a great time and now feel like I need to go shopping to find a nude ruffled suit! <3

This past weekend I was on a mission to find dark denim high-waist shorts…but of course when I am looking for something, I find and WANT everything else but what I am actually looking for. So while shopping I found this mirrored effect floral printed dress at Forever 21. This new print is on trend and will continue to be well into Fall. I am even starting to see this “mirrored effect,” in swimsuits too!

I love this cut and fit because I can wear it with a blazer for work and take off the blazer for happy hour or a date night. If you are an online shopper and want to purchase this dress make sure to buy a size larger than you would usually be because it runs a bit snug.

Well, summer is officially here!!! It hit 100 degrees last week and today I am laying out by the pool and enjoying this beautiful Arizona weather while writing to all of you!

So in honor of the summer weather I wanted to show you a casual, fun summer look that can be worn on the weekend day drinking or at a bbq.

I love dressing up but sometimes it’s nice to be comfy and casual when it’s hot. But don’t forget to stay extremely colorful this summer because you will see lots of color out there in magazines, fashion blogs and watching House Wives of Orange County of course lol! 🙂

Field of colors, lace, crystals and tall models galore; that pretty much summed up my Friday night at JW Marriot Desert Ridge for the Massage Envy Fashion Show! This show was a grand production and I had an amazing time styling this show! Thanks to Phoenix Fashion Week for letting me style such a fun and colorful event!

photo 2

For this show I was inspired by Massage Envy’s location color/theme…..PURPLE!!! So I wanted the color pallet to flow around the rich purple they use to trademark their name. (Shown Below)

All of the models in this picture are wearing looks from Dillards. The Saturday before the show I spent close to 3 hours in the Scottsdale Fashion Square location, pulling looks because there was sooo much to choose from (which is never a bad thing). What really stood out to me was the flowy dresses and tailored jackets and for the men I was drawn to board shorts and rolled up skinny’s for summer!

I also wanted to give a special “shout out” to the amazing style team that helped me backstage with a flawless show! I look forward to working with all of you again! 🙂

LOL! I had to add this picture because I love standing next to these beautiful models because I am half of their size…literally!

Spring is now quickly turning into summer weather and I wanted to check out the stores to see if I could find any transition pieces for my wardrobe. I recently went on a mini shopping spree at Tempe Market Place this past weekend and I found a crisp, white peplum rayon top at Divaz Boutique. This top inspired me to do a blog post on Work to Weekend Wear Looks!

It was the perfect temperature and weather for a rooftop fashion show in Phoenix. With over 250 guests supporting the Phoenix Children’s Hospital; everyone was dressed to impress including the amazing models.

I have never styled a fashion show on a rooftop before and now I don’t want to have it any other way because of how beautiful it was….but if you would ask me in the middle of July I would probably be perfectly fine with an indoor venue 🙂

I love this picture above because I am literally half the size of these beautiful bombshells I am styling <3. Backstage all of the models are wearing Shawl Dawls; I blogged about this designer back in January because I fell in love with their collection because there are so many ways to wear their shawls. Watch their new video below!

Here are some of the Shawl Dawl looks at the show:

Misty’s fun and unique location is in the heart of downtown Phoenix. If you are looking for a Louis Vuitton clutch to a sequin cap-sleeve jacket Vintage By Misty is your place! There you will also find Amir’s Va Loute!

I had the pleasure of working with him for MIM Rocks Fashion. His looks are very clean-cut and unique. I love his color pallets that he pairs with his prints and designs. What’s really cool about Amir is that he creates all of his designs in-house.

When I first started writing this blog post, I just wanted to talk about backstage but as you are reading…..it has turned into a lot more! I absolutely LOVE my job and LOVE what I do and LOVE who I worked with on this show and wanted to give everyone a little shout out! 🙂

JHaus Denim was really fun to style because I pretty much wanted every single item she designed; so it made it extremely easy to visualize what I wanted my outcome to be! JLynn (the designer) is amazing to work with and has such a kind heart! I was also lucky enough to be able to pull some fun tops from Clothes Minded Boutique! (Shown Below).

Last but not least I loved this look from Bounty Hunter! Who says only women can roll up their pants, guys are now doing it too! I also tell all of my male clients to always match your belt with your shoes and this is a perfect example! I loved the color of this belt and actually saw the belt first and paired the entire outfit around it 🙂

Dillards

I also wanted to give a special “Shout Out” to Dillards Accessory Department because they supplied me with all of the accessories in the Green Street Realty Show!

And as always thank you Phoenix Fashion Week!

I hope all of you had a great weekend!

Did a little shopping this week and over the weekend and wanted to show you some of my clothing and accessory finds! I went shopping at a couple of boutiques, Tempe Marketplace and JcPenny! Yes, it’s a pretty wide variety of places; but if something sparks my eye…I have to get it and if it is a great deal…then I have to get 2 (one for me and one for a friend).

I have been asked by some readers to show one piece of clothing turned into multiple looks. So I decided to show you a recent purchase of a nude top that I spoke about in my past blog from Clothes Minded Boutique in Phoenix. I love this top because it looks extremely expensive looking but not expensive in cost; this beautiful top was $39 and I am going to show you different ways to wear this top for day and night!

– Black Button Up Leggings, Juicy Couture $198
– Tear Drop Gold Earrings, Muse Apparel Boutique $18

I am always looking for fun ways to dress for work because there are only so many suits and dresses I can wear to the office before I get bored! My new nude top inspired me to put together this work look today! I paired it with a bright green pencil skirt that gives the outfit the “POP” it needs to stand out! Another color that would look great with this top is plum purple, turquoise and even a bright mandarin orange color! I also paired this look with a motorcycle jacket to add a fun layering piece; you can even add a fitted black blazer or a cropped denim jacket with this look!

Where I got this look:
– Nude Top, Clothes Minded $39
– Green Pencil Skirt, Express $59.90
– Motorcycle Jacket, Express $99.00
– Gold and Gunmetal Earrings, Guess By Marciano $68
