Last week I was privileged to attend the 43rd Annual Barrett Jackson car show‘s Fashion Gala event. It was an amazing experience that I was thrilled to be a part of via Phoenix Fashion Week who never disappoints. The Fashion Gala is the official kickoff of the week full of events. I have been to Barrett Jackson before, however I haven’t been to this Gala Event. The best part of it all was our behind the scene access!!!
Brie and I had a blast snapping pics and taking it all in. There was always something going on and the celebrity shots were seriously an added bonus. Frankie Muniz and Billy Baldwin were my personal favs!!!!We also had a blast hanging with the gorgeous Brittany Brannon, she was such a gem!!!
We can’t forget about the one of a kind fabulous cars that were there! Obviously having an eye and love for all things vintage, I was definitely drawn towards the oldies, yet goodies!!!
The night ended with a rockin performance by Bret Michaels. I can’t wait until next year!xoxo,

Thank you to the following photographers for taking such fabulous runway photos: Trudgephoto Photography, Steve Yap Photography, and Almanza Photography for taking such great photos throughout the event!
Wow, WHAT A FREAKING year!!!! So many ups and of course a few downs. Here are a few of my fav 2013 highlights:
Dapper Fellow & I went to SF together. We were able to attend the Heat vs Warriors game and witness Lebron James’ 20,000th point milestone.
I attended my first LuckyFabb event in LA where I met some of my fav bloggers for the first time and was able to brush elbows with some of my fav fashionistas.
I turned 30 years old and was able to have some of my best friends join me in Napa & Sonoma for a weekend I will never forget.
I completed my first open water swim in La Jolla. The best part about this experience was that I was able to share it with my sweet mama.
I traveled to NYC to visit friends, shop, and attend my 1st Broadway show, Newsies!
My new restaurant, Jimmy and Joe’s Pizzeria. This is our 3rd location and we couldn’t be more thrilled to see our booming business continue to grow.
I am finally getting a REAL sister, Norma Jean. My brother popped the question to his longtime girlfriend who I cannot wait to spend a year celebrating!!!
Thank you for being a part of this awesome year, here’s to 2014!!!!
Last night I had the opportunity to attend a private Holiday Trunk Show at the 7 For All Mankind store in Scottsdale Mall. Not only was most of the store on SALE, but they also made the cutest most DELICIOUS custom cookies in the shape of denim pockets. (I may have had 1.5) The Scottsdale 7FAM knows how to throw a shin dig, right down to the small details.
I ran into two of my fav blogging babes Latisha & Alyssa. It was so much fun catching up with them, sipping champagne, and of course trying on some of the hottest holiday pants ever!!!!!!
Have a great weekend!!!

Good Morning! I hope you’re all feeling refreshed and rested after Thanksgiving weekend. Nothing makes me happier than relaxing with family, eating good food and watching football. Blogging has sadly taken the backseat with my chaotic work schedule, but I am so happy to be back at it this week. I am not a huge Black Friday fan…I would actually rather swallow a piece of glass. However, I am a BIG fan of Cyber Monday. I put together a list of some of my favorite sales for you. Unlike most fashion bloggers, you won’t find any big businesses on my lists. I love finding unique stores or sites that offer quality, yet affordable products. If you haven’t heard of some of these sites they’re worth delving into.
Danielle Stevens-Their ENTIRE SITE is 70% off. Use code: cyberdeal
Modify Watches: 30% off sitewide. Use Code: EVERY10FABB. (Modify will also be giving every 10th order for FREE. Those are some good odds!)
Yosi Samra: So many styles are up to 50% off. You will LOVE these flats! I ordered these bad boys.
The Shine Project: Buy 3 get 1 FREE while supplies last. No code needed.

Good Morning lovelies,
Last month on my NYC trip I was lucky enough to stop into the GORGEOUS Bollare offices! I felt so NYC getting buzzed up and making my way through their amaaaazing showroom!
Lovely collection of La Mer watches. Everyone needs one of these if you haven’t gotten on board already.
Rachel Pally is one of my favorite contemporary dress designers. Her line is full of flirty casual dresses that last so long. No cheap cotton used here. Pally’s threads are quality and movable on your body.
I discovered Quay Eyeware over the summer and somehow accumulated 3 pairs of these awesome shades. Sunglasses are mandatory in AZ so I really can’t ever have too many.
Reformation was by far my favorite line at Bollare. Reformation is an environmentally sustainable fashion brand that repurposes vintage and surplus
materials to create a chic, limited edition collection. The collection is made locally in New York and Los Angeles studios, and sold directly to our own stores at reasonable prices. I can’t wait to make my first purchase.
We can’t forget about the boys. Galet is so hot for Spring right now.
Have a great Friday!!!
A few weeks back the lovely Angela from Heaven Has Heels interviewed me for her “Well Heeled Hot Seat” section of her online, interactive, digital fashion magazine. Thanks HHH for including me!!! Hope you are all having a great day! xoxo,
Hey guys! I have a very special post for you today…I am teaming up with the fab Agi from Vodka Infused Lemonade & co-hosting her weekly Tres-chic Thursday!!!! Every Thursday Agi hosts a “link up” to encourage other bloggers to network and get to know each other better. I always look forward to it and I am sure you will to!!!
Here are AGI’S favorite looks from last week:
1. Must be a new post, or fairly recent one. Please link the post not the blog.
4. Please stop by the other blogs and say hi. The idea is to get to know other bloggers .
5. Please link back to my blog or post this button on your blog.
I had such a wonderful time attending PHXFW this year. Last year was my first experience at any sort of fashion show and it did NOT disappoint. One of my favorite things about events like this is meeting beautiful, kind women who share so many of the same passions. I met a ton of new friends and of course ran into some of my favs. <3
Phx Bloggers unite!
It was so fun running into my friend Maile from Seattle!
My top two favs from the two nights that I attended were the Robert Black collection, a Phoenix local and the Brandon McDonald collection, a current Project Runway contestant. Both were flawless and I literally was gasping with excitement!
Brandon, who sort of resembles Jesse Tyler Ferguson from Modern Family yes?
Love these gals, Audree, Stesha and Brie
My gorgeous sista, Norma.
My BFF Krystal, Cynthia & Norma
The darling Ashley Cooper, so great to finally meet you <3
Night two with these two hot babes <3
It is always over so fast Thanks PHXFW for another great year of fashion!
