Class in Session : #ColaFashionWeek 101

Three post in less than one week? I know, I know…this is not typical of me, but it’s the 7th Annual Columbia Fashion Week! The occasion is absolutely worth breaking routine! I am so excited to share my experiences with you now so that you can still have time to attend an event this week before it’s all over!

I wanted to recap and elaborate on night 3 of #CFW. This night consisted of the Fashion Education Panel and Trash the Runway Mini Presentation/Competition! It was so exciting! Keep reading to hear all about it!

S U M M E R S T Y L E.

Hello guys! It is with great sadness that this has to come to an end….SUMMER, that is! Can you believe we only have T H I R T Y T W O days left until summer is officially over? Time has definitely flown by, but I certainly feel like there are tons more of summer styles to be worn! A great example of a summer style look would be like this one that I created here!

A Picture is Worth Ten Thousand Words

Literally…sometimes photos can speak for themselves! In this case, I decided to share a very unscheduled batch of photos that were taken on my personal iPhone 7+ by my very patient husband!  I also wanted to feature my brand new toy; my Instax Mini 8!! ♥  It was a Christmas gift from my best friend that you’ll be meeting soon!

FAUX FOREVER

Ok ladies, let’s talk about fashion accessories! My number one favorite accessory obsession of the fall and winter season in the Carolinas is faux fur! I absolutely love how it gives your outfit so much pizazz. There are so many items out on the market that possess faux fur, but if you’re anything like me, I have to be very mindful not to overdo it. There are some pieces that just aren’t made for my body type. Some woman don’t like to admit that fact, but I will be the first to stop and say “Oh no! Stop it right there!”

To shine a bright light on the items that I can wear, my first favorite fashion add on is the faux fur Pom Pom purse/keychain!

This can be worn on really any bag that you want! The possibilities are limitless when it comes to these things. This Pom Pom came from Charlotte Russe for less than $10.00! Super deal, right? There are some faux fur poms that are more expensive, but those are the “name brand” options such as Michael Kors or Fendi.

My second favorite faux fur look is the scarf!

I was able to grab this gorgeous piece from Target for less than $20.00! Steal! I love infinity scarves, so this one was a must-have! This can be worn with pretty much anything except for other faux fur pieces. (Just in case that was in question.) This is a great piece to use when you’re wearing off the shoulder, cold shoulder, or full sleeved tops and/or dresses. This top that I’m wearing is a mix between off the shoulder and cold shoulder and of course I purchased this from Express.  These dark denim jeans are from Express also!

My third and final look for my faux fur obsession is of course, the vest!

img_9087 img_9049I was able to snag this from H&M! I have a black and white mixed one (featured on my Christmas Cheer post), but this brown goddess stays tucked away in my closet, I’m not really sure why though! This is definitely a comfortable piece and the added bonus is that it has pockets! Pockets are the perfect detail on this vest and is quite handy too. It can hold your gloss, phone, or whatever you need that’s compact.

[ Purse feature is a jewel! Contact me for details until future feature post ]

So to wrap this up, don’t be afraid to embrace faux fur! It can be an outfit saving accessory or your highlight element to your outfit! Either way, it’s bound to be a hit!
