Local Love

Happy Wednesday loves!  Hope everyone is enjoyed their family this past weekend.  I totally did!  I  want to drop some love on one of my very favorite local boutiques.  Blush Boutique is located in Kirkwood, MO and seriously its like my style just threw up all over the store.  If you’re a festival, free people, sun dress, short shorts and crop tops, everything  tribal girl, this store is for you.  My duster and jumpsuit are both from Blush Boutique.  Shoes are from Alloy.   If you live in the St. Louis Area and you don’t shop local, you are missing out! And now there’s an app for that:).  You’ve got to check out Boutique Nav an app for iPhone and Android users that connects you to the best local boutiques in St. Louis.  Download the app now and talk to you guys soon!

St. Louis Fashion Blog Awards!

Last Thursday night I had the pleasure of hosting the first ever St. Louis Fashion Blog Awards EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEK!!! The excitement was very real! It was not only the Blog Awards, but the kick off to St. Louis Fall Fashion Week 2013.  Co-hosting with Alive Magazine’s Co-Founder and Fashion Week Co-Producer Elizabeth Tucker along with PR guru’s Jenna Pet and Ellen Soule, was an overwhelming experience, but in a most wonderful way!  The night kicked off with hors d’oeuvres, mixing and mingling and great ambiance.  We then moved into the fashion blog awards ceremony and that’s where I took the mic.  I was able to announce the winners in categories such as Best use of twitter, instagram, Best photography, Best Personal Style, Best Life Style (which I was nominated for and didn’t even know lol oops).  The crowd was full of excitedment as the winneres were announced.  It was so great to see the bloggers come up to the front, receive their award and  have their moment.  If you talk to any blogger there, they are just excited that people read their “stuff,” so being nominated or a winner  is a huge cherry on top of the cake! I can’t wait for next year’s awards show!!! However the fun isn’t over yet, it’s just beginning! Next week the fashion shows kick off and you don’t want to miss them!!! Get your tickets here St. Louis Fashion Week and use CHRISTIA15 for a $10.00 discount!! Can’t wait to see you there!

FNO canceled??? STL does it’s on thing!

Even though FNO (Fashion’s Night Out) was canceled nationally, St. Louis decided to keep the tradition alive by having A Night of Style sponsored by St.Louis Magazine. It was a night of networking, free food and drinks that culminate with a fab fashion show inside of the mall. I held down the Fashion Group international booth, mixed and mingled and also enjoyed the show inside. Guess, H&M, Nordstrom, The Limited, Franchesca’s and several other retailers showcased their fall trends.  While watching the show it was hard not to keep your head from bobbing because the DJ was incredible. He definitely kept the night interesting! I think some people were more interested in the music than the clothes. At one point my husband and I threw our hands up because heyyyyy he was was playing our jam. He immediately looked over at us and gave us the head not of approval lol! What a great night!
