Concert Threads


If you listen to our show then you know I’m the planner. I am constantly looking ahead in my calendar and when I popped my head in there this week, I noticed that KISSMAS is coming up fast!
Yes! December 13. Spectrum Center. Shawn Mendes … DNCE … Alessia Cara… Hailee Steinfeld… Charli XCX… Jojo … and of course all of you! So this Fashion Friday, let’s find (and inspire) the perfect outfit for the concert goers all around the Queen City!
This week it is all about faux luxe ! Looking GREAT and “killing it” without… killing it. This season we’ve seen a ton of use with textures and jewel tone colors, so I want to play with faux fur textures to soften a streamline look. Perfect for anything from a casual party to a night on the town. It’s luxe without being over the top!
I found this weeks look at Page 6 Boutique in Baxter Village with the help of their amazing stylist!
Let’s start with a gorgeous faux leather legging that will give our outfit an edge by Ellison. $44.99
Now let’s add the color of the season… Olive! Autumn Wishes Criss Cross Blouse. $39.99
Here’s my favorite part…pair with a soft cream vest to make this look “sweet and spicy”! Laney Faux Fur Vest by C.luce. $79
And of course we have to rock some accessories to have a complete look from head to toe!
This Eliana Beaded Choker Necklace has all the right colors to pop on this style! $22.50
Polish off with a metallic foil clutch by Hobo Lauren ($128) and a black fringe bootie by Matisse Arlo ($79.99) and you’re ready for meet and greet!

Post Baby Fashion


Okay now that I’ve had this baby, let’s get down to business! I am SO excited to be back in my normal style/clothes and with the holidays about to be at the forefront of our social schedules now is the time to make a statement!
Turkey day is the official kick off to the holiday season so having the perfect outfit is a must! I’m sure you’ve been scouring for the perfect outfit that’s not to dressy yet not too casual for Thanksgiving.
We’ve seen lots of playful trends this fall, from velvet and other rich textures to daring prints and mix and match fabrics.
This Fashion Friday was inspired by just that… TEXTURE!!!! Velvet, leather and suede …Oh my ! This week I set out to find the perfect outfit to wear to any friends-giving or traditional family gathering.
I was looking for something with a little rock & roll spin that you could take from day to night! Have dinner with the fam, then meet the girls for drinks! Here’s what I love this week from Lipp Boutique…
– “Nude” Velvet Cami Dress in Olive $78
– “Biker Babe” Jacket in Black $99
And of course no outfit is complete without the perfect accessories…
– “Vanessa 361” Rust Suede Fringe Shoulder Bag by JJ Winters
– Leather Rope Necklace in Black by JJ Winters $44
Pair with a great pair of suede knee high boots, and you’ve got yourself an outfit sister!

Pregnancy OOTD


Fall is my favorite time of year, and I can attribute that to a few things, Pumpkin Spice Lattes, the changing leaves and of course FALL FASHION! As the weather takes a chilly turn, we turn up for cozy aubergine (eggplant colored) sweaters, layers and fun leggings!  That’s why I am teaming up with Lipp Boutique for Fashion Fridays!
We are fresh off of Paris and New York Fashion Weeks so what can we expect to be rocking this fall? Well here are some staples you will need for your closet as we head into the most fashionable time of the year!
As you know, I am about to pop out a baby ANY DAY NOW! (Hint hint Baby Strager… Eviction notice is coming) So I have solicited the help of a friend to model my 1st “MUST HAVE” look for fall:
– Everyone should have a GREAT jean in their closet so we went with a “Hudson Distressed Skinny”, that can be mixed and matched with virtually any outfit! ($205)
– For a vibrant pattern pop we chose the “Vivian Keyhole Tank” ($62)
– And of course every great fall style needs some layering! So, since suede is the new black this season we paired this look with a cool “Faux Suede Khaki Blazer” ($69)
– To complete this outfit, we chose a great neutral heel!
Anddd just because I am 9.5 months pregnant doesn’t mean I can’t join in on the Fashion Fun! Being preggers doesn’t mean you have to conform to moo moos and unflattering maternity looks. I was able to shop this adorably stylish look from Lipp too!
– Oversized Burgundy Poncho ($66)
– Stretchy Snake Skin Print Leggings ($66)
–  JJ Winters “Made With Love” Metallic Platinum Clutch ($308)
– Milo + Fin Single Antler Necklace ($108) Which is made locally!

Manicure Monday


F is for Fabulous nails! I’ve been obsessed with #sologelnails at home gel products for months now so you can image how excited I was when they ask fellow blogger whitneyrosesharpe and I to guest model for their pro-line! You have to see the #reaction polishes that change color with hot or cold! Look for it in the pro-gel selection at your nearest nail salon. SO COOL!
