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!

bold fashion: KCFW

I love going to fashion shows. It’s so fun to see new designers, inspiring collections, and all the fabulous models, kiddos included. A couple weeks ago I had the chance to attend KCFW again, this time for the Fall/Winter 2017 season. When I was thinking of how to describe this season’s runway, “bold fashion” was the term that came to mind. This season’s designers and collections definitely didn’t disappoint the inner fashionista in me. 

This first collection I’m going to show you was so 70’s inspired to me and had all the jewel tones every fall fashion lover will envy. Tiffany Brown’s “Chelsea Girl” collection was probably one of my favorites during Friday night’s runway. 

One of the reasons I love fashion shows are because it shows off a bunch of fun, unique pieces. While this collection definitely still had those, it also contained so many “wearable” pieces I would love to have in my closet!

The wide leg look is so flattering on many body styles, though I’m not sure I could wear the pleated look on the backside. Maybe it would help though 😉

Nasheli Juliana’s line was a little “flying nun” inspired if you ask me! So fun and bold for sure. 

This kid’s collection by Ethel & Dean is everything I totally see my future kids wearing. It’s still whimsical and kid friendly but so unique and different from all the other adolescent fashion out there.

Love the bold fashion prints, accessories and details in this collection. Not to mention the kid models were so stinkin’ cute and took that runway seriously!

I really enjoyed Joshua Christensen’s line as well. Love the use of bright colors paired with bold prints or accesories. I love a designer who isn’t afraid to get a little on the wild side!

These are truly just a sampling of some of my faves from the Friday night runway show. Later this week I’ll be sharing more from Saturday’s, which was the final runway for this season’s KCFW. It is going to be so much harder to pair down my faves from that evening. Be prepared for an even more photo packed post!

AFW16 Finale

Is it Monday again? How did that happen so quickly? Hope you all had a great Mother’s Day celebrating all those great mamas out there! I shared about our first night attending Austin Fashion Week last week and today I’m talking about the finale runway event. We dressed up a little bit more for the finale events and had a blast! Thanks Chloe Red Carpet for being so awesome 🙂

How killer does this red headed model look? She was by far one of my faves, love all those long red Merida/Ariel like locks! Talk about fierce.

The color blocking from this designer was so on point and I loved how it looked and was perfectly pieced together to create a fabulous look that I think would look great on all ages and multiple body types!

Loved this capsule collection featuring a vibrant print showcased different ways.

And this designer just “made it” in my books. Her designs were unique, kept you guessing, and playful!

That’s a wrap folks. Have you attended a fashion week before? After attending my first two this year first KC then Austin, I can’t wait to attend more. For fashion lovers like myself it’s fun to see new emerging designers as well as dress up myself for the event!

Austin Fashion Week

A couple weeks ago I had the opportunity to attend Austin Fashion Week as a fashion media blogger and had such a great time! For starters Austin is such a fun city so it was great to spend some time down there enjoying the amazing weather, shopping, eating and nightlife and with the added bonus of a lot of fashion mixed in it made for quite the weekend. Friday night we made our way to Austin Fashion Week in a peddie cab which was also provided for lots of entertainment!

Ready to get started and see those runway looks!


I took so many pictures and loved so many of the looks but chose some of my favorites…

afw16 2

Loved the all white with the gold accents, looked stunning!

afw16 3

This look kind of reminded me of a Britney Spears 90’s look (in a good way!) and I really liked it, I loved everything they put on this model actually

afw16 4

Mostly loved this for the bike, love when designers use props or accessories in a fun way that shows off the aesthetic of their brand

afw16 5

How fun is the movement in this dress?? She’s just walking down the runway and it sways like that, love love it!

afw16 6

Here was one of the capsule collections that just looked awesome, the far right looks like something Olivia Pope should probably have in her closet

afw16 7

This was one of the final looks of the evening and I think one of my sister’s favorite looks from the whole weekend. Something about that tone on tone top with the pants and the pop of color scarf just completely works!

Post runway!
