Fashion week was in full effect and just about everyone from the fashion world was in the audience at Talking Stick Resort looking fierce, fabulous and dressed to the nine. I can’t believe it is already October 2014, feels like just yesterday I was writing the recap for fashion week last year. Below are my favorites from the three shows….2014 brought new and eclectic looks to the runway. My favorite designer from the entire week was a past “Designer of the Year,”Bri Seeley. Her designs are wearable for the every day woman that want to look fabulous from head to toe. I pretty much want everything from her new line.

In April Morgan McLane with Morgan McLane Photography and myself had a Styled Photo-shoot Giveaway.

IMG_5412

Our winner that was chosen is truly amazing; her name is Melanie Van Klaveren and she is a Beachbody Coach. Morgan and I went to her house to talk about what she was looking for in her photo-shoot and we learned so much about our amazing winner! I truly believe that everything happens for a reason because we completely hit it off and had a fun time going through her closet and deciding where we wanted to shoot! Melanie has an amazing personality and is beautiful inside and out and we were very excited to help her with her brand as a Beachbody Coach as well as her website! I pulled looks out of her own closet and paired them with accessories and shoes. You don’t always have to go shopping for new and improved looks….it sometimes just takes another set of eyes to look in your closet and pull great pieces that compliment your body type and color.

We shot under the beautiful Arizona sun on a sunny Sunday morning; we choose this location because it is beautiful and colorful as you can see below. We also had a camera crew (my husband) follow us on the shoot because I LOVE behind the scene looks. We had a blast and I cannot wait to do a giveaway like this again with Morgan McLane!

This year I was paired up with Clothes Minded Boutique in Phoenix. We both worked together last year for MIM Rocks Fashion, so I was excited to be teamed up with Kim Kendall again. The pieces in her store are versatile for any look you are going for…dressy, casual or just the in-between. This spring is all about neutral and casual tones; so I decided to focus on simplicity meets effortless beauty and that is what shined on the runway this year at Phoenix Fashion Week’s Spring into Fashion show in downtown Phoenix. Below are a couple of interviews from the show by Phoenix Fashion Week and Valley Hype.

This was my first time getting a blow out at Park Avenue Blow Dry and Nail Bar and I loved the result! My hair actually stayed in place till the next day! 🙂 I felt like a movie star getting my curls pinned so of course I HAD to take a picture of it<3

All of the jewelry featured in my show were from Kendra Scott at  Scottsdale Quarter. I love her pieces because they can transition from day to night or a casual evening to a night out on the town. I own close to 10 pieces and I find new ways to pair them together everyday and you will see that from the looks on the runway.

I also teamed up with Block and Battaglia, the owner Christine is a full time real estate agent who when she’s not selling homes or running Block & Battaglia, spends her time focusing on her 2 great loves… her boyfriend and their son. Each Block & Battaglia bag is handmade by Christine, and all bags are one of a kind pieces. I have a clutch with Camelback Mountain on the front and I LOVE it (one because I am a native here in Arizona and two because it is just amazing!)

This year I was welcomed back as a Top Stylist in Arizona for the Spring into Fashion Show held in downtown Phoenix by Phoenix Fashion Week. I am very excited to be a part of this event on March 28th at 7pm.

I have been preparing for this show the past couple of weeks and shot my video last weekend at one of my clients that turned into one of my best friends house (the view was amazing). This year my vision is simplicity meets effortless beauty, it’s all about being comfortable and fashionable this year without having to spend a fortune.

Christian Dior. A name that is thought of as legend in fashion. So it was no shock when I saw their new campaign featuring the stunning and funny actress Jennifer Lawrence as “Miss Dior.”

rs_560x363-140221085425-1024.2.Jennifer-Lawrence-Miss-Dior-Campaign.jl.022114_copy

BRAVO to the creative and production team that put this shoot together because they hit all the right points in my eyes. From the simplicity of the makeup to the volume of her hair. It was the perfect touches that made this campaign memorable for Spring 2014. From the plain backdrop to the black and white photos, everything was in perfect alignment for this “spring loving,” shoot!
