Are you ready for Fashion Houston? Its 5th inception will debut from November 18-21. For five years the Fashion Houston has been a growing force bringing Fashion to new heights. To benefit (one of my favorite Houston non-profits) Dress for Success FH5 threw a Row Call kick off event. Riding off the heels of the influencer event, Row Call really got the party started in the right direction!

Held at the newly remodeled JW Marriot in the heart of Houston, this venue seems to be the go to spot for all things chic. The atmosphere is perfect and the crowd that came out to support brought the best style Houston has to offer.  The floor was dotted with influencers, local designers, socialites and bloggers all united over the love of Fashion Houston. Platforms sprinkled throughout the venue showcased a preview of what to expect from FH5.

Thanks to a failed memory card I lost all of my photos from the epic night, but I do have a small video of an awesome dance party taking place.

There was dancing, designers, delicious bites, and divine spirits. Did I mention a dance flash mob? No. Ok, well that happened too.

Good Eats: Dogwood Houston Photolog

 Midtown Houston is such a cute place! I wouldn't want to live there (or inside the loop at all for that matter) but to meet up a best friend for lunch? I am there! Its also dog friendly.  They have a rooftop with a cute view of downtown.  More info about them HERE.
Really only made this post so I can share how EPIC my foodie photo came out! We went crazy with crab cakes....Crab cake sliders and crab cakes on fried green tomatoes.

I love Houston fashion week :)

Sneaker Gang | Diamond Back Launch

On the scene wearing: Love Lucy top, Love 21 shirt, Francessca's ankle booties, Steve Madden Purse
The Diamond Back launch was hosted by Sneaker Gang, Bryan-Michael Cox, with special guests Joseph Addai and King Johnny the Jeweler. Located at the Hudson in Houston the event was very chill and a great kick back to launch the first pair of sneakers from Houston, Texas. Not only was Houston's first sneaker released, but a check was presented to the Zero to a 100 charity.
Event sponsors included D'usse' and Haze hookah. 
I love H-Town!

Last week I went to the Refinery29 shopping block at the Houston Premium Outlets. Shopping, blogging DIY. I think it was a good day.( Minus the cold front leaving, and me wearing a sweater and sweating my life away.)
Local boutiques setup popup shops in this space hosted by Refinery29 and Simon.
Lol I made an Ugly tote that I want to peel everything off of.

FROM SIMON:The Shopping Block—with an event design inspired by modernist artists such as Donald Judd and Dan Flavin, as well as the art and architecture of Marfa, Texas—will provide a variety of features that appeal to the millennial audience, including:
  • Indie Boutiques + National Brands: Refinery29 and Simon will invite indie boutiques with local reach and relevance to participate in The Shopping Block. This will create an interplay between the native, in-market shopping experiences and the very best national retail brands, all within the mall landscape.
  • Stylist Concierge: The Shopping Block attendees will receive curated style guides that highlight fall’s biggest trends, and where to shop them at Simon retailers.
  • Guest Hosts: At each event, city insiders—chosen from local tastemakers in style, fashion and lifestyle industries—will act as hosts.
  • Sweepstakes: Shoppers can participate in a digital sweepstakes at the event for a chance to win retail prizes, valued at a minimum of $1,000, from Simon premier retailers.
  • Beauty Bars: Makeup artists will be on-hand at pop-up beauty bars to give shoppers mini makeovers, and share the latest beauty tips from the experts at Refinery29.
  • DIY Station: The Shopping Block guests will have an opportunity to personalize tote bags, taking inspiration from Fall 2014 runway trends.
