Q&A with Issac Mizrahi

So this past weekend Isaac Mizrahi was in St. Louis in conjunction with the Opera Theatre of St. Louis.  He was gracious enough to do a Q&A with the community of STL.  This event brought out fashion enthusiast, bloggers, the media and lovers of art.  Isaac kept the crowd in stitches with his humor and was very open to answer any question.  One 16yr old aspiring designer asked him for advice about establishing herself in the fashion industry and his advice was to not listen to advice and to keep doing what she was doing.  That was probably the most memorable moment of the evening.  All in all it was a great night and I’m adjusting everyday to dress this bump:).  It gets easier when there’s actually a bump to dress lol.  Check out the deets below.  What would you have asked Isaac?

Rocking Chic and Transitioning


It was such a beautiful day this past Sunday and I felt a little edgy.  I’m still adjusting to my ever growing body and some days my bump is bigger than others, but it’s quite a journey and I’m excited to see where it leads.  I’m heading into my 14th week in this picture and still able to fit many of my regular clothes.  I love the leather details on the leggings, the fur detail on my vest made me feel luxurious and my shoes are just killer.  I love rocking them! Hope you all are having a wonderful week and embracing the transition in your life.  The thing about transitions is that it makes us feel uncomfortable.  Sometimes we loose site of the beauty on the other side.  I know that’s how I felt this past week, but I believe in beauty in exchange for ashes.  Which simple means out of the rough spots or ugliness in our lives, if we are transitioning for the better, there is beauty on the other side.  So keep going, don’t give up or quit.  This transition will only make you better!

Hanger Appeal


While shopping a few weeks ago in Marshall’s, I landed on a row of interestingly designed cardigans. I went in the store on a mission to desperately find a few cardigans to hide my growing bump, because I hadn’t made an official announcement of my pregnancy. I don’t wear many cardigans, and I’m picky about them, so I knew this would be a daunting  task. Weaving through the hangers I saw some that I liked, but weren’t quite my style. While searching, I stumbled upon the cardigan that I’m now wearing, but it wasn’t love at first site. I thought “hmm that’s interesting,” but it didn’t grab me. The hanger appeal was non-existent, that is until I saw a lady in the next aisle try it on and that my friends is when I fell in love. The draping and fit intrigued me and I had to have it. I didn’t even try it on. I just took it to the register and paid. This cardigan actually stayed in the bag for a few weeks and I debated on taking it back, but when I put it on with my all black I fell in love again. I really love the upholstery type material that its made out of.  I’m 13 weeks preggo and official and I asked some of my coworkers  and my husband if they could seem my bump? They said no lol, but I see it and know its there:). So the moral of the story is don’t judge a garment by the hanger. It may surprise you! Love love love this look!
