the IN crowd...The Blue and Green Fashion Show

Makeup, hair, clothes, heels, flat irons, steamers, hustling, bustling, models, lights...camera...RUNWAY. I told you I would do my best to get some backstage pics of the Blue and Green Fashion Show I assisted in, and as you can see, I came through for you fashionistas! But there was something that was out of my control...I went to the fashion show to be a STYLING ASSISTANT and ended up being a MODEL! Now, you and I both know that I am sooo NOT a model, but one of the original models was not able to make it so I was asked to fill in. Even though modeling is totally not my thing, I'll always step up to the plate in the name of fashion. Afterall, this was a fashion emergency. The fashion show was lots of fun and featured the fall collection by a.d.o. and vegan shoes by Neuaura. The models were a blast to work with and trying on different fashions is always great. I wore a winter white blazer and wrap dress that was VERY comfortable and cute...I wished I could have kept the outfit! I am excited to assist(be it styling or modeling) with the next show:) Be sure to check out http://www.carbondc.com/ for all of your sustainable fashions.

FALL in love...with Layering!

Falling in love with boys? That's soo last season! This year, FALLing in love with fashion is what's hot and I'm smitten. Fashion  layering is the love cure-all when it comes to that eternal question; "What to wear when it's no longer hot, but not quite cold?" Fashionably transitioning from summer to fall can be a bit tricky because, just like love, the begininng can start off kind of cold and uncertain, but as the relationship continues, much like the day, things start to heat up! Wearing lots of layers such as blazers, cardigans, tees, trench coats, capes and sweaters allows us to adjust to this unpredictable weather by peeling off layers and still being fashionable. There are many layers of our hearts one has to get through before we're comfortable, so why should it be any different when it comes to fall fashion. Now, as love pulls us in deeper, nightfall arrives and the temp begins to cool again. No worries...you have your friends to shield you, or in fashion's case, your layers to keep you warm. So this fall, don't count on traditional love to get you through the unpredicatable season...FALL madly in love with fashion layering and your heart will never be broken.

the POPular girls

I REALLY like this necklace...as you can tell. lol

The Jocks, The Cheerleaders, The Nerds, The Band Geeks, The Class Clowns and most importantly...The POPular Girls. Welcome to Fashion High, where the boys drool and The POPular Girls rule! Staying abreast the latest trends is what makes us fashionable but standing out from the crowd is what makes us POPular. Adding bold colors to our outfits sets us apart from the rest. Jewelry, shoes, bags and makeup in eye POPping color is what distracts the students from paying attention to the teacher. ALL EYES ON US! Reds, pinks, yellows and purples can quickly take your outfit from drab to FAB! Sitting at the cool lunch table, front row bleachers at Friday night football games, invitaions to the hottest parties and seats next to the cute boys in homeroom and 5th period are all perks of being one of the POPular girls. Still feeling like an outcast? AS IF! Meet at MeMe's house after school to study more ways to make an outfit POP with color and gush about the cute new guy;)

When you are challenged with what coordinates with uncommon combination colors like pink and red, turquoise and yellow, orange and blue, ect., I say get NAKED. Yea, that's right. Go NUDE and rid yourself of color.  It's the perfect solution for fashion challenges like this. An outfit that has lots of color can be paired with shoes and accessories that have no color at all. It gives your ensemble the perfect balance and won't over power you or your look. On the other hand, nude, ironically, can be the POP to an outfit. For instance, I love wearing black and white with nude shoes/accessories. I get bored with the standard black, red or pink with black and white. It is very expected and Fashionistas are all about the unexpected. White  looks very chic with nude tones as well. So the next time you feel like you have too much on or you want to shake things up a bit, just take it off and expose yourself! Strip down, uncover, get naked, bare it all...go NUDE. Yes, everyone will stare and that's exactly what you want them to do;)
