Dress To Death

dress to death, scottsdale fashion, amy blackYou may remember my post a few weeks back promoting the 1st “Dress to Death” fashion night out event hosted by the lovely Bri Bridge.  Dress to Death is a fashion networking event intended to bring together fellow fashionistas.

September’s featured brand will be After Hours Agenda the hottest new tee trend that began in AZ and is spreading like wildfire across the globe. Live models will be showing AHA’s latest designs throughout the night, and the brand will be available for purchase, along with some must-haves from other AZ boutiques.

The best dressed attendee will receive fashionable giveaways and gift cards for local shopping.  Holler!  I am so excited to be judging the Best Dressed contest with  Cassidy Doller!!!


I can’t wait! I hope to see you there! Monday Sept 16th from 7pm-11pm at American Junkie!



My Morning With Kendra Scott

Last week I had the pleasure of spending the morning at the Kendra Scott store at the Scottsdale Quarter. I had never visited the store before and was anxious to check out all the gorgeous gems in person.  Kendra is primarily known for her Color Bar.  The Color Bar is designed for you to be able to pick and chose what item you would like and then create what stones to put in your piece.  It is very interactive and easy to use. There are so many different choices, but in true Amy Black fashion I picked and committed to the first combination I chose.  :)kendra-scott-scottsdale-quarter-store-front 77ac1a44158811e3a61a22000a9e06f0_7 CB_howto_for_print k3 k1
