Kansas City Fashion Week

In honor of all things Pretty, Polished, and Perfect,  I’ve decided create awards for this season’s Kansas City Fashion Week: PPPxKCFW Fashion Awards (golden trophies coming soon.)  I didn’t get a chance to attend every show, so these are the winners based on the Thursday and Saturday night shows: KCFW Jewelry/Accessories Category: Georgina Herrera (this […]

Prom Dress // 5 Tips

It’s Prom Dress season here in suburbia (when is it not, really?) There is nothing more rewarding than guiding my youngest clients through the sea of never-ending homecoming and prom dresses, to see their eyes light up when they have found the perfect dress (it’s a pre-cursor to wedding dresses, but without the usual tears!)  From strapless […]

Cocoon Dress

I don’t know about you, but I love these see-and-be-seen events – don’t you hate wearing a great outfit and nobody that’s going to appreciate it gets to see it?  Save it up for KCFW, snap a pic on the red carpet (step-and-repeat, but without the step and sometimes even without the repeat lol!) and […]

Red Dress // 5 Ways

When friend and blog reader Anna (okay so she’s also my best friend – wink) sent me a link to this Erin Fetherston chiffon dress, I knew my budget was in trouble.  I’d just started researching beauty trends, florals are huge this spring (I feel like that’s always a duh! spring florals!) and with KCFW […]

Red + Lavender // KCFW

Omaha Fashion Week

At the beginning of March, the Mr and I took the boys to Omaha, NE for a quick getaway; actually I went for Omaha Fashion Week, and dragged them all along with me (still haven’t heard any complaints…..)  This was my first time at OFW, and it was…..a great experience.  Everything ran smoothly (of course […]

West 18th Street Fashion Show

I wasn’t in town for last year’s West 18th Street Fashion Show (held at the Kansas City Public Library due to inclement weather), but based on the small glimpses inside the show I was able to find via social media – it looked amazing!  I could not miss this year, not with so many designers I […]
