A week has almost passed since Fashion Week San Diego’s Second Annual Spring Showcase. The event was once again hosted at Harrah’s Resort Southern California, and man, was the atmosphere electric that night! But let’s first talk about the outfit I wore . . .
For this first FWSD event of the year, I desired mixing one of my favorite winter pieces with some fresh flair. Why? Well, for one, I’m usually one to spring for a dress, so I wanted to go outside my comfort zone a bit. Secondly, I did SPLURGE on these beautiful, Marsala leather pants for my thriethieth birthday, and in order for me not to have buyer’s remorse, I need to get as much use out of them as I possibly can ;) thus my goal was to find a top [hopefully in a print] to go with. I didn’t have to look too far, though. [Goodness, how I LOVE REVOLVE clothing!] Once I saw this Reagan Printed Tank by Equipment, I was sold! It had the perfect amount of dark red in it – mixed with fun pops of citrus yellow and pink. Then, I added one of my beloved COS necklaces, a retro radio-looking clutch, these “I-look-like-the-new-Valentinos-but-am-really-not” shoes, and I was SET! What do YOU think of my ensemble?I’m really starting to realize what people have been telling me for years = I have a knack for color, folks! But I guess that goes hand-in-hand with being an upholstery artist. I also adore velvet. Always have. Always will. And that brings me to the first of five favorites from that night’s runway. This blue velvet Napostol dress almost made me fall out of my seat. It’s flawless hue and the lines. I mean DAMN! Beyond beautiful.
And no Spring Showcase would be complete without some bathing suit love! I adore when a one-piece embodies an interesting design with an overall sexy feel. Kudos, Candy Bee Swimwear. You should be proud!
Prints are oh-s0-hot right now. That’s why I wanted a print top for my Spring Showcase look. Scott Rich must have got the memo too. WOW! After the show, I personally went over to congratulate him. You should see what he has in store for October’s runway. I have a feeling there will be MANY Scott Rich pieces in this #stylecrazed lady’s closet.
BJASHI is at it again and I am OBSESSED with this yellow dress. The unusual textures created by layering fabric got my fashionista chest beating; very interested to see what her total line will embody in the fall.
On a [last] more personal note, I am so beyond thankful for all the beautiful souls who have come into my life through FWSD. A year ago, I was fairly new to the San Diego style scene, sitting alone at events, and now I have a whole fashion family. It’s all because of you, Allison Andrews! You are such a forward-thinking force, fabulous friend, and fun-loving gal. I believe I can speak for the entire group when I say you continue to inspire me. All of us. Event after event. Congratulations! If this is just a taste of 2015, this year is going to be smashing.
P.S. – I was having an awesome hair day at the event. The day of this #stylecrazed shoot :/ not so much! Lol. “Don’t let perfection ruin the good.” Check!
