I usually keep my OOTD posts simple by only posting photos and links to the pieces of my outfit BUT I must make a quick comment on these jeans…
Maddie Koerner is a student at the University of Missouri and she reworks vintage clothing into something new! I bought these jeans from her that she hand painted and they are most definitely the coolest thing in my wardrobe. She is such a sweetheart and beyond talented! Check out her Instagram here!!
Happy Tuesday! I made a goal this year to branch out of my “set” style and try out new things. I tend to dress pretty edgy using mainly neutral colors but I don’t want to stay in that aesthetic because there is only so much one can do within it.
For this look I paired a bright, mint green blazer that I thrifted with a faux leather pleated skirt and white pussybow blouse. My original idea was not to be preppy and gossip girl-esque but the outcome looks kind of like I stepped straight off the show. Not only do I get those vibes, but I also felt like I could be strutting down a street in Paris.
Remember that you don’t have to stick to one style to define yourself. It is so much more fun to try out other aesthetics and to add your own little twist.
The final night of the F/W’18 season of Kansas City Fashion Week was spectacular, as it always is. I am so happy to have completed my 11th season of KCFW and am pretty sad to say it will be my last; for a while anyways. I am moving to Italy for school and will be unable to attend next season but I think I left on a good note.
I always try to make my final night’s outfit the best out of them all. For this look, I am wearing a long red off the shoulder gown paired with a fur shawl; both by Lucia’s Sarto. I think that it’s important and shows support to wear a designer who is showing that evening. I wanted to keep the look elegant and clean so I slicked my hair back and paired it with simple, minimal gold hoops and that is all.
Nataliya Meyer is an incredibly talented fashion designer with an eye for beautiful tailoring. She is the designer of the dress I wore this evening and is amazing at what she does. Her collection was gorgeous. It was so feminine and flowy with the most beautiful luxurious hues. Her gowns are always like something from a movie.
Ethel & Dean
Ethel & Dean is a children’s line for the edgy kid. I love how punk and out there these pieces are- and for kids! The color palette is wearable and light mixed with edgy decals. I love the fantasy-like details (wings, masks, hoods, etc.).
My Heirloom Bridal Design
I love looking at bridal dresses and I am obsessed that this collection was not all white! The designer incorporated blacks and beiges to adorn the white which I thought was so interesting and different.
THIS was probably my favorite from the evening. I want to purchase every look from this collection. This line was made for the working woman who still wants to look stylish and fashionable in the office. The designer portrayed this quite literally by having models hold coffee cup, hold briefcases, and wear pencils behind their ears. It was such a realistic fashion line and such perfect, necessary concept. My favorite piece was the metallic blue jumpsuit. To this day, I can not get my mind off of it.
Sara Kahrs’ collection just screams fall. The colors and shapes make me honestly just want to skip summer (my least favorite season anyways) and go straight to fall. All the colors were pretty dark and then every now and then there was a pop of bright yellow to stir things up and keep it interesting. By looking closely, the garments were put together so well. I can see this being put up in a storefront window display immediately.
Her by Georgina Herrera
What an extravagant way to end fashion week. Everything (like seriously everything) about this collection was insane! The Versace-like choreography, sleek hair and bold make-up, and of course- the jewelry! Georgina is such a talented and creative designer and each piece she creates is so exclusive to anything I have ever seen. Her finale piece was a dress made from all metals and I was so blown away by it.
