Kleenex Needed

I need more leather jackets in my life.  Somebody talk me out of a light-colored leather jacket.  Please.  I do NOT need one of those. Or maybe I do….. This is a Fashionista Events opportunity.

With 31 days in October, I’m prepping to crank out 31 awesome styling flavors tips and tricks that you will love (just like the ice cream.)  Now is the perfect time to talk about versatility.  It’s what makes it so nice to take our summer clothes we love so much (and aren’t quite ready to […]

Denim + 5 Tips

All opinions expressed are my own. } 5 REALLY GOOD REASONS TO BUY DENIM ONLINE (and a quick denim outfit.) Fall is just around the walk-in closet and it’s the most wonderful time of the year: Denim, Jeans, […]

Just Between Friends (in KC)

It’s back-to-school for my sons, fall has arrived in stores (which means it’s back-to-fall for stylists, scooping up what we hope to be the best trends found this season,) and I’ve just spent too much money!  Ha!  Just in time to save me before I buy my sons even more athletic wear (why am I […]

Polka Dots + Modesty

I’m officially back from summer vacation and ready for August’s weekend whirlwinds (including a very exciting upcoming event in St. Louis – so save the date for the morning of August 16th, okay?)  In the meantime: polka dots, modest swimsuits and the beach! And a discount code just for you!  Lime Ricki Piped Cream Dot […]

Phone Etiquette While Shopping

It’s summer, and that means I’m back to juggling work and entertaining three boys full-time.  There are days when my sons are super-helpful, and there are days when they play along with my little schemes; they even forgive me for my multi-tasking monstrosities.  Like the time I took them to a special event at Sealife/LegoLand […]

VPLs and other calamities to avoid

Visible Panty Lines.  Enough said, right?  (also, I have no pictures for you, but I think Steve Martin does a great job of summing it all up no?) image via pinterest I was at a……place, where I couldn’t help but notice this teenage girl and the unsightly bunching of her bikini-brief-type underwear under her knit […]

ULTA Beauty + a pretty little giveaway

ULTA Beauty was in town for a local grand opening, and we (Sandy, Meg and I) got double the fun after seeing them at KCFW and being invited to a media preview party (let’s call it what it is, shall we? lol!)  We headed straight to The Salon (you can read more about their services here) to […]

Isaac Mizrahi + Kleenex Style Studio

Back in the day, fashion was a little bit different.  There were no tents at Bryant Park.  Chain stores didn’t have “previews” or showings.  Designers hosted their shows in amazing locations, and even the staging itself sometimes upstaged the collection.  The next morning, local papers would run the reviews and designers woke up putting it […]

Park Place

Let’s talk about Park Place for a minute.  I’ve often met my girlfriends at Ingredient for quick lunches, attended a few events at the ALoft Hotel, and ice skated the shopping center’s rink; what I have not done is actually shopped there.  I recently had the opportunity to be shown some of the shopping found […]

Overalls: Trend or Timeless

I believe I may be eating my words right now; I’m 100% positive I’ve said no one should wear overalls, ever.  Unless you happen to be a toddler, toddling around with a toy in hand, I’ve always thought overalls were a trend to avoid.  Drive to Omaha for the Omaha Fashion Week, forget your very […]

First, 5 Spring Sandals from Macy’s (all under $50!) Second, a Macy’s gift card giveaway ($10k in gift cards, 300 winners, 1 day – today only.) 5 Spring Sandals, on trend, from Macy’s. Under $50. I know the urge to buy more flip-flops is strong (I mean, I know,) but try some of these first. […]

KCFW + Saks Off 5th

This past weekend was Kansas City Fashion Week.  I was only able to attend the Saturday afternoon and evening shows, and it was a lot packed into 10 long hours.  I met up with Meg, Sandy and Jana and hit the backstage VIP Ulta event.  It’s always fun to be backstage (I mean, who doesn’t […]

Vacation, Anyone?

I’m ready for another vacation.  The kind that requires a passport, please. this is a fashionista events opportunity.

Full Skirts + Silk in Color

Another fun skirt to make me super-girly: the full skirt.  Full skirts have been trending and you can find them everywhere.  Except of course, for the color I am always looking for.  Growing up, I could never find exactly what I had envisioned in my mind, and I would always beg my mom to make […]
