I’m back! Last week was CRAY-ZAY.  And this week continues to look the same.  I am starting to realize that everyday just might be kinda crazy for the next few months.  Have I already been sucked in by the “holiday rush”? I’m afraid it is very possible, my friends!

Needless to say, I had a blast at my first Kansas City Fashion Week. My participation in this weekend’s festivities started Thursday evening with a fun happy hour for KCFW Media/Bloggers at the Hilton President followed by a quick run over to Halls KC for the Rebecca Minkoff event! It was so cool to meet Rebecca and celebrate her time in Kansas City with shopping, a sweet DJ and cocktails!

Had to snap a picture of Rebecca’s amazing shoes…the only thing I would change about them is that they’d be on my feet.IMG_7772IMG_7780 IMG_7770 IMG_7781Meeting up with friends and discussing our plan-of-attack for the shows the rest of the weekend made me really excited to see what KCFW had in store.   I had to prep my attire early on Friday morning before I headed to work since there was no time to head home in between! Sometimes our most staple pieces will do just the trick.  And it’s a good thing black/white’s on trend because my closets full of it!

Friday night I wore one of my favorite LBD’s by Vince Camuto, my black ALDO wedges and none-other than the Kendra Scott Rayne Pendant in Onyx.

I first got acquainted with the work of House of Cochan when I attended Go Blog Social.  These pieces had some sass.  Primary colors packed with a punch! See for yourself…IMG_7902 IMG_7910 IMG_7907 IMG_7904 And of course I loved seeing what Saks Off Fifth had to share that evening. Have I mentioned how much I ADORE leather this season?  I want leather everything.IMG_7944 IMG_7942 IMG_7937IMG_7939 IMG_7934 IMG_7933 IMG_7932 IMG_7930IMG_7953
It was cool to see designers from as far as St. Augustine, FL taking part in the show.  Below are a few pieces from the Cass & Britt line.IMG_8018

I also wanted to include this little “gem” because really…how beautiful were Rachael‘s jewels on Friday night? IMG_8094

And now a couple outtakes with Sarah.  Why not?IMG_8091IMG_8090

Tomorrow I’ll bring you a look into what filled our Saturday evening!  In the mean time, from the photos above (or if you attended the shows), did you have a favorite designer?  Be sure to share in the comments below!
