THE EVENT: Carrie Ann Anniversary Celebration

Wednesday, February 29, 2012 - by Shasie · - 12 Comments

This past Saturday, Carrie Ann celebrated her 2-year anniversary at her boutique in Houston's Uptown Park. The first time I heard of Carrie Ann was at Women of Wardrobe's Sizzling Soiree event at Ms. Tootsies back in August 2011. I had taken the following Event Style photo of a guest wearing an amazing skirt purchased at Carrie Ann and knew that I liked this boutique owners eye for style!!

The second time I came across this shop was during Culture Map's Fashion on Sale Event in January 2012.  I had tried to fit into some of the items, but unfortunately I needed to loose a few more lbs. That's okay because this inspires me to continue on my weight-loss journey!

I loved her pieces and definitely wanted to check out her shop and attend the celebration. Carrie Ann's shop is unique in the fact that she also sells cute pieces for dogs! In fact I was looking at the embellished dog collars as potential bracelets for me!

Carrie Ann Anniversary Celebration - The Outfit

Tuesday, February 28, 2012 - by Shasie · - 8 Comments

It's just so cool, to actually see my FACE clearly in indoor photos.  Anyway, Saturday night I attended Carrie Ann's 2-Year Anniversary Celebration, and this is what I wore. I will have a full blog post on the event tomorrow.  As usual I was running from one location in Houston to another.  If you guys remember I do brand ambassading, so sometimes I do freelance work. So of course I had a job from 10am to 4:30pm and Carrie Ann's event started at 5. I tried to help myself out, but thinking of the items in my closet while I was at the job, so I knew that I was going to wear leggings and boots, because the temperatures had dropped a bit.  Then I decided to just go with navy and black all over.

Cardigan: Express
Sequined Tank: Express
Skirt: Express
Leggings: Mossimo (Target)
Boots: Aerosoles

Kate Kills Pretty While Shootin' From The Hip

Models wearing designs by Aries Milan and Accessories by Donae Chramosta
I swear fashion events are picking up like CRAZY here in Houston! And do I have to go to each & every one? Yes, yes I do! Or at least I try too! Fashion is my passion, and lately I've been choosing attending fashion events over other options...guess it's in my blood! Any way Friday night local Houston Fashion Designer Aries Milan and her sister August Milan along with Donae Chramosta of The Vintage Contessa hosted a Fall 2012 Showcase for their fans.  They have returned from showing their collections at New York Fashion Week and were able to give us a preview of their upcoming looks & accessories for this Fall.

Aries, August, & Donae
Aries' collection is titled Kate Kills Pretty and her designs are stunning. I love the use of camel and browns in her line, and playing with texture as seen in the skirt on the first model below:


They had a photo op area in which guest could adorn western gear and have their photo taken! I of course wanted mine with the stylish models!

Donae's accessories are just as unique because she takes unwanted luxury apparel and turns them into something people want to buy! Like this cool Louis Vuttion gun holster! Also can be used for cell phones. The Vintage Contessa will be merging with Coquette Boutique and customers will be able to shop both collections in one space.  Now that's what I call one-stop shopping! Donae's has started to set-up her space and her pieces were displayed for us to browse.

WHAT I WORE: Coquette Boutique Trunk Show

Sunday, February 26, 2012 - by Shasie · - 8 Comments

Friday night I attended a fashion industry event at Coquette Boutique & Bistro. I will have a full post on this event tomorrow, but first I want to share what I wore. I'm not sure what possessed me to put my hair up in this high funky ponytail, but I just went with it, and had fun! A lot of blogs feature "street-style" looks, in which they may be walking down the street and see someone wearing a great outfit, and ask to take their photo for their blog.  Although street-style may be all encompassing to seeing anyone anywhere wearing a great outfit, I've decided to use my own term: "Event Style". People don't "walk" on the "streets" in Houston like they do in LA and New York, so all the trendy people I see are usually at events.  I capture a few of my favs from the event last night.

Dress: Express
Vest: H&M
Peeptoe Boots: Fioni (Payless)
Earrings: Distinctive Designs by Tomira
Lipgloss: MAC Lychee Luxe
