KCFW: in the details

The final night of KCFW was one for the books! The runway show included many KCFW “veterans” and they didn’t disappoint. For me the final evening was all in the details.

Here was my outfit for the evening! Top and shoes from Pink Saloon, pants from Target Who What Wear line, jewelry from Stella & Dot

I loved all the details in every line from the evening. I especially enjoyed how each designer’s collection was so different from the others.

This collection from Barbara Bultman was a serious stunner. With the deep, rich colors and all the textures it definitely wasn’t a bore.

This train was amazing and so different from your usual train. Maybe perfect for a beach wedding??

Next up were some fabulous jewelry designs from Georgina Herrera. This jewelry is seriously like no other. I also loved how the designer chose to have two models walk down both sides of the runway at the same time. Was a great change up and gave the audience so much to look at!

People in the audience were actually gasping when this model came down the runway because it was so amazingly intricate.

Is there such a thing as too many jewels and metals?? I don’t think so!

Beautifully paired outfits with Georgina’s jewelry designs.

The last designer was Christian Michael’s new women’s line, sHe. 

I think hands down this was my favorite line of the runway events I went to. 

The entire collection was in black and white and incorporated different stitching techniques and varying hemlines.

Love the quilted look of this overcoat with the Cruella deVille like collar.

There wasn’t an outfit he put down the runway that I didn’t enjoy.

And a couple more looks from Barbara Bultman because I just couldn’t narrow it down!

Overall I had an amazing experience this season at KCFW. I liked the change of venue and the European style runway. We were up close and intimate with the models and really were able to take in all the details. Want to see more? Be sure to follow @kc_fashionweek on Instagram!

ORC Week 5 It’s all in the details

I can’t believe there’s only one week left of the One Room Challenge! Our dining room is having a couple hiccups that I will share more about next week. Overall it’s coming together nicely. One of the things I posted about before we moved to the #hickoryhouse was that I wanted a bar cart. I ended up not purchasing one off my list but instead purchased this adorable marble and gold one from target. I love all the details of the space already and can’t wait to show you more!

For our dining space I couldn’t choose a very large bart cart so this one fit perfectly in size and in style. I love the detailing of the marble that really adds to my dining room by bringing in a different element. The only difficult thing about it is when it came to styling my cart. Since it’s not very big I didn’t have a lot of options so I just stuck to the essentials.

I needed a set of bar tools that was the right size to all fit together on the cart. I love this one also from Target that I purchased. The stir sticks are Oh Joy from the summer collection and the decanter and tumbler are from Target as well, they are older. I love this hammered copper shaker and this wine decanter if you’re in the market!

The bottom of my bar cart carries my true essentials: moscow mule copper mugs, ice bucket, and a few spirits and mixers!

Obviously the bar cart serves a purpose, hello cocktails! However I love the added detail it’s bringing to our dining room.

I’m a fan of mixing my metals so I love the copper, gold and chrome that pop off the cart!

And those stir sticks are just too darn cute not to show up closer!

So tell me, do you have a bar cart? Or if you did how would you style it? To see all the rest of the bloggers linking up for the One Room Challenge head to Calling it Home! And don’t forget to come back here next week, same time and place, for the finale of the ORC! I will be sharing all the beautiful details in our newly transformed dining room. 

Wedding Planning Part Dos

For part 1 of this post go here!

How to Pick a Wedding Song:

We got many laughs when people would ask us what song we picked for our first dance, but they didn’t know the whole story. If you’ll remember how the hubby and I met you’ll know I’m a Tswift lover and she’s the sole reason we are together today-pretty much anyways. So we chose Today was a Fairytale for our first dance song. Once we told people the story of why we chose it people loved the sentiment behind it. No matter what song you choose have it be one that represents you and your soon to be, that’s all that matters!


How to Pick Wedding Colors:

Search Pinterest! I can’t tell you how much I looked on pinterest for good ideas that I could use in my wedding. My only warning is beware while on pinterest you will have ideas of grandeur that might not fit into your reality. Use it as inspiration and see how you can work those same ideas into what works for you! I chose to go mostly with neutrals for my wedding so that when I looked back I would be happy because they are still classic colors. Now I wasn’t all boring and didn’t just stay in the neutral zone, I added pops of mint green! I think doing this let my personality shine through!


Mint Green Necklace & Bracelet paired with gold bangles and a headband for the reception. I’m all about the details!


My shoes were my something blue!


It took some convincing but he finally obliged to wearing a mint tie 🙂



Ways to Make your day Special:

There are so many different ways to make your day special, from the dress you pick to the songs you play its all about you and completely customizable! Several things we did that I thought were unique were that we didn’t have a program, who keeps those anyways? Instead we wrote in on a big framed chalkboard and had it displayed when you entered the ceremony site. (Also a great way to save some $$) Another thing we did is a photo guestbook as well as we had a bible inside that I had personalized with our names on it that people could stop and underline, highlight their favorite verse and put there names beside them. These are both sweet ways to look back on your wedding day and remember who all was there! Another thing we changed up was our “unity ceremony” I didn’t love the whole light a candle to unify the two of you. I didn’t think it was very personal at all. So instead we did a unity prayer where we had our pastor invite both sets of our parents to come up and pray over us. It was such a special, unique, intimate time that truly signified our families uniting. Just think of ways to make the wedding ceremony fit you and your spouse not the other way around!




As I mentioned before we deemed my wedding style as boho glam therefore this headband added the perfect touch when I took off my veil after the ceremony!

Whatever the details of your wedding are, make it all about you! It is you and your soon to be’s special day and you deserve for everything, even the small details to reflect who you are what your relationship is like.
