Memphis Fashion Week 2017 Featured Designers Part 2

Ugh, y'all I got the flue this week so now I'm super delayed in my MFW recaps - sorry! Anyway, moving on with the fabulous fashions I have today pictures of the remaining featured designers to share with you,
First up from Austin, TX - This is Sloane. This collection is very hip, very Avant-Garde  and although too edgy for my personal taste very fun to see. The designer is only 21 years old and this is her 5th collection!!! Meanwhile, at 21 my biggest accomplishment was surviving my first three years of college in New Orleans. Check out these cool designs:

Finally, to close out the evening was the headline designer Nicole Miller! As I mentioned in my last post we wound up sitting across from Nicole during the earlier shows in the evening, and I happened to be carrying my old school Nicole Miller purse - which she totally noticed! So, when I saw her notice it I took an opportunity to say hello during one of the breaks and she couldn't be nicer and even posed for a photo with me:
Yes, I am a giant
Here is the Nicole Miller Spring 2017 collection:

It was a wonderful night of fashion and the perfect way to close out the first night with a bang!
Tomorrow I will be sharing about the Emerging Designers Project so stay tuned!

I tried

As I've blogged about previously this year I am trying to cut back on my amount of clothing and my fashion spending. But now I've realized the problem with that - I've purged a lot and now I wearing the same 8 seasonally appropriate  outfits on rotation - which is not great when you're also trying to focus your blog to have more of a fashion emphasis; plus it's reminded me why I typically bought so much clothes - it's boring wearing the same thing over and over again. Of course, part of this is my bad because I'm also supposed to be trying to wear things differently so they don't look like the same outfit over and over again. This my friends is easier said than done. So take last Saturday for example - Shaun and I headed to Ikea to look at sofas and kitchen ideas (woohoo - married life is so glamorous!). Initially I threw on jeans, a cotton top and a cardigan since it was looking to be a little chilly look and right as I was about to say ok, I'm r…

Memphis Fashion Week 2017 Emerging Designers

The last night of Memphis Fashion Week is the favorite night for many local fashionistas because it shows off what is up and coming in our city. Once again I was able to grab a great seat and see the pieces up close.

First up for the evening was two time previous winner Tiena. I think it's easy to see why she's won twice before - just wow on these beautiful designs!

I love the model's expression here - it's like she just loves wearing this so much she can't contain it.

I love all of it but the yellow ruffle dress has to be my favorite, it's not a color I would typically be drawn to but there's something so nice about it!
Next up was the teen collection, these pieces were designed by beautiful young ladies all under 20. Once again, I am a complete and total life slacker. Seriously - I was blown away by how talented these girls are:

Wardrobe Wednesday - 1 month update

Hello Friends! Now that I'm done with Wedding Wednesday I've decided to shift my regular Wednesday to the big thing I'm focused on right now - my wardrobe! If you're not friends with me on FB, or you are an have me hidden due to political differences (hey, it's the world we live in, I get it) you might have missed that on a regular basis I'm posting my OOTD (outfit of the day) to be voted on for keep, restyle or purge. So far the votes have been really helpful and between the votes and stuff I'm purging on my own I have quite the purge pile developed. Here's the most popular thing I've posted:
This plaid top from Old Navy was purchased during their black Friday sale when the entire store is 50% off - I usually take this as a go time to stock up on cotton tees and other basics but I was really drawn to this color combination when I saw it in store. So far this has been the only piece I've posted that has received a 100% keep vote so I'd say…
