Falling Off The Wagon (and the best photo ever!)

The beginning of September brought us fashion shows from around the world.  I’ve been lucky enough to attend Kansas City Fashion Week (and all its’ parties,) and have gotten to experience the good, the bad and the ugly.  I’ve seen the KCFW team under stress and under the influence.  What I remember most is how […]

Kansas City Fashion Week: Saturday Designer Showcase

Night four of Kansas City Fashion Week, my feet were still intact, the atmosphere was still kinetic and my fellow bloggers and I were wearing white blazers (see previous post.) The show started with Garbiela Arslanoglu, a Peruvian tigress – full of personality and well, on the prowl – lol!  If ever there were a […]

KC Social: Saks Off 5th Event

Saks Off 5th can be a great store, and can sometimes be hit or miss.  Sometimes I can’t get enough of the shoe selection, the spring and summer dresses can be phenomenal (but my size is almost always sold out!) and the denim never fails me, ever.  Right now they have racks of denim on clearance, with […]
