September Outtakes

Is it really the end of September? It feels too early to be sharing our outtakes, but the calendar isn't lying (we double checked!). From back to school to fashion week, there was a lot to keep us busy. Take a look...

It's comforting to know that when times get hard, all it takes is a badass outfit and some glitter to turn things around. We're learning to become our own rock stars, our own motivators; because that's what it takes to move past set backs and disappointments to reach our goals. 

September came through like a whirlwind. Even through our reluctance to Autumn (we love summer), we've been lucky to still have warm weather to help us cozy up to those fall vibes. That, and every fashionista's favorite... Fashion Week! The Spring 2015 collections in NY, Vancouver, and Milan thus far have been fun to follow. Crazy, though, how the rapidly growing Vancouver Fashion Week was stealing focus from the more renowned runways. What's more? All you codekeepers got a backstage pass. You can thank dré for that!

Now, here we are entering into October and looking forward to our layers and boots, as well as branding partnerships. (We're excited about this. More details to come!) So, you see, truly it's not where the sidewalk ends, but the effort to direct that next step toward a re-energized beginning. The leaves are turning, follow us as we begin anew.

Fair Time

It's that time of year again. Fair time! For me, the fair is what kicks off the fall. Once I've eaten cotton candy, checked out some barnyard animals and watched my munchkins ride some rides, I know all the holiday festivities are just around the corner! 

I can't wait for fresh picked apples, pumpkin patches, and Halloween costumes! What are you excited for this fall?

Backstage with Goldie at VFW

Last week I spent 3 days in Vancouver, B.C. walking in their fashion week. It was definitely their best season yet. The venue moved from the Chinese Cultural Center to the Queen Elizabeth Theatre, where they had set up tents. 

I'm looking forward to sharing all the different collections I walked for with you, but let me start with Goldie. This was my third season walking for this designer. Her ready-to-wear collections never disappoint. The makeup for her show was soft on the eyes and a bright pink lip. The hair was soft waves. Below you can see some of the photos from backstage.

After the show was over, my husband and I headed out to the VFW after party at Cabana nightclub. The music was great and the hors d'oeuvres were delicious.  I even found a panda on the way! 

And finally here's a photo from the runway captured by Dale Rollings.

I'm not quite sure where the inspiration for this outfit came from, but once it was complete I had a lot of fun wearing it! It's so awesome how three pieces (dress + accessory + great shoes) is all it takes sometimes to create a jivin' look. I added a little lip color to bring definition to my face and violà!

Happy First Day of Autumn!

Weekend Style: Fashion Week in Milan + Vancouver

The camera doesn't lie, we've got some nostalgic pieces to look forward to next year. Not to say I was alive for 70s fashion, but this is one fashion trend that will have to be styled with care. Why not watch MFW live while you enjoy your cup of coffee and let me know your thoughts in the comments below?

After that, show the Canadian's some love! It's Vancouver Fashion Week, too.

You can even show dré some love by voting for her as VFW's favorite model! See details below!

Where the Sidewalk Ends

One of the many privileges in life is having the power of choice. Choosing something for yourself, and being satisfied with that choice, can propel you in ways taking the lead from someone else could never do. Today, I encourage you to trust yourself and take a step in faith. There's always something more, even when you think you've arrived at the sidewalk's end.

White Tee and Jeans

I love how classic jeans and a white tee are. Just depending on the cut of them, you can look boyfriend casual to chic. 

Here I'm wearing a fitted tee with skinny jeans and snake-print flats for a simple and polished look. Like it?
