|STLFW: Industry Night|
The few events I attended thanks to Alive Magazine during St. Louis Fashion Week were absolutely stunning. The whirlwind week was kicked off with the Fashion Blog Awards (read more about my time at the STLFBA here). The only other events I could commit to (wife/mother/teacher/singing in a wedding trumped the rest) were Industry Night and the Blogger Brunch & Lunch.

Industry Night was such a fun evening with my friend, Brooke. We were able to enjoy a fun and fabulous girls night out filled with a full dose of fashion! The venue was Windows on Washington with a presentation of several local designers. After an hour of mingling, viewing, and photo-boothing we were taken up-stairs and seated using our fab VIP tickets from Alive Magazine.
Once seated, we were lucky enough to see collections from Wai Ming, Laura Kathleen, Jennifer Chun, Samantha Pleet, and Eva Franco! Wai Ming (top left video) featured my favorite color in leather…NAVY! Laura Kathleen (top right video) featured structured ensembles and, in my opinion, the best look of the night…the trench coat/dress! Jennifer Chun (bottom left video) featured a collection filled with super cute sporty pieces. Samantha Pleet (not pictured) featured cinched hemlines and headpieces. While, Eva Franco (bottom right video) stole the show with a happy, fun, colorful, printed, yet classy collection!
Blogger Brunch at Saks Fifth Avenue was a great way to meet other sweet fashionista bloggers, while getting sneak peek into Tess Giberson’s Fall & Resort Collections.
Blogger Lunch…After brunch, my blogger bud, Kelsey, and I did a little shopping (I left with a J.Crew bag of course-ha!). We then made our way to Neiman Marcus for a lunch presentation including handbags, jewelry, sunglasses, and mini grilled cheeses…and #OnTheCusp event where we viewed some killer heels and, of course, more of the leather trend.
