PHXFW-Recap

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

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!

The Shine Project-Beauty Bar Event

You all should know by now my love for all things ASHLEY from the Shine Project. Last week she put on an awesome event geared towards a “ladies beauty night out!” Not only did this event have amazing rooms where ladies could get their hair, nails, and eyebrow’s done, but there was also a silent auction to win fabulous prizes. Considering my last run at a silent auction, I opted out of bidding. Haha. It was a great turnout and the best part was hearing about the work that Ashley and her camp are doing in all of these kids lives!!!

PHXFW-Day 1 Recap

What a whirlwind yesterday was.  It was a long, but an amazing first day of Phoenix Fashion Week. My dapper fellow is out of town this weekend so my plus one last night was my good friend Cass.  It started really late, but the shows were so great I forgot all about the waiting.  As we were taking pictures early in the bloggers lounge I noticed my camera’s battery dying so I saved the life for my favorite new emerging designer Shawl Dawls!  You may remember me sharing with you about these dawling wraps here.  Their one piece 15 way shawl collection killed it on the runway. I cannot wait until my spending freeze is over and I can get my favorite one! Here are the pics I snapped of night 1.

In true T-loc fashion Cass and I got in the front row!

I can’t wait to see how their line grows and further develops! Stay connected with me throughout my entire PHXFW experience via Instagram & Twitter!

Happy Friday babes!

FNO-Scottsdale Edition

Last night I had the pleasure of attending FNO in Scottsdale.  I brought one of my best friends Nicki who I used to paint the town with in our early 20’s.  She since has gotten married and has the cutest little 1.5 yr old you have ever seen. It was so nice to share the experience with her and catch up! I also FINALLY got to meet the lovely Lauren who I have been working with from PHXFW. I also met one of my fav bloggers, Katie from Running On Happiness and was introduced to her darling gf’s, Sarah from Something Brue and Ashley from Golden Divine. I can’t help, but get even more inspired when I meet and find other fashion bloggers who share similar passions.  If you don’t know about them already be sure to check them out!

Have a great weekend loves!
