MY 3 FAVORITE DESIGNER BRANDS AT MAGIC FASHION VEGAS

Hello lovelies! The weekend is here and finally I have time to post some photos of my experience at MAGIC, the global fashion trade show held in Las Vegas. It was my first time, and what a mah-ve-lous experience it was!  I think next time I will have to hire a tour guide to help navigate the humongous buildings and oodles of booths!  I spent a lot of time drooling over the new collections arriving for spring in the next few months!  Most of the items were available for order only by wholesale purchase, soooo that was truly a blessing.  My bank account could've suffered some serious damage! There were thousands of brands, designers etc. to check out, but these are the three that I totally fell in love with!  1) Ya Los Angeles 2) A'reve  and  3) Coffee Shop Coats .   Other great perks of the show- being able to attend seminars to learn more about the business of fashion, and great networking opportunities. A few days before Magic started, we were able

WHAT'S YOUR STYLE CRUSH?

 Good day  lovely peeps, hope this Valentine weekend is treating you well!  We have been blessed here in the Northwest with some very balmy winter temperatures.  I was so happy to pull out my cropped pants today.  Boyfriend style  jeans are so versatile and comfy, and are my favorite style crush right now.  A lace pullover with a tank underneath complements them well for a casual  look.  I loved this outfit with red flats best, but the black pumps look fab too.   I will be back soon from Magic Vegas with some new outfit ideas for spring and pictures from the show.   Thank you for taking time to view my blog!

A FASHIONISTA'S GUIDE TO SURVIVING THE WINTER BLUES

 I am always Hollywood dreaming, especially this time of the year when the sunny days in the Northwest are few. Thoughts of my trips there make me smile, and helps ease the mid winter blues.   L.A Fashion District :  If you have never made a trip to downtown LA to the many miles of shops, you are missing out! It is a fashion lover's paradise.  Deciding what to buy will certainly be your worst dilemma.  The choices are endless, and the prices are very reasonable.    Hollywood Blvd This street has very unsusual and eclectic shops. It is one of my favorites for finding unique styles and people watching, never a dull moment!  Marilyn is there ready to pose! Be sure and sneak over to Rodeo drive too, well .....it could get you into BIG trouble...just stay outside and window shop! Hollywood Sign Lastly, if you are up for a hike to the top of the world, head to the Hollywood Hills and start climbing.   OH MY GOODNESS, I th
