Nashville FashionWeek 2012 -behind the scenes

























prepping for models to stand on ice sculptures...a whole new respect for them!























I volunteered to be a docent for an awesome designing duo called The Trunk. These ladies each owned their own lines called "Sleeveless" for women and "State" for men before collabing to create beautiful fashion apparel/accesories for Nashville and around the globe. They are the first designers in Tennessee to go mobile, yes you can purchase their unique creations inside their truck. You can also find The Trunk online, at thetrunknash.com!


*fun fact: these male models are wearing pants that were formally worn and exclusively designed for Lenny Kratvitz during one of his music tours!











So the weather inappropriately tried to rain on my parade, so instead of hairstyle option one, I decided to create a turban out of two silk scarves. I also wanted to be both comfortable for four hours of standing and express my individual style, so I decided to wear this lil number=))*blazer/shirt-goodwill
* shorts-target

*tights-kmart
*scarves-hair store
*shoes-off broadway shoe warehouse
*bangle-burlington coat factory

STARRING STRIPES**








-mixing patterns are fun and add great texture, but for those who aren't too kean on the idea can try wearing the same pattern but in different sizes and opposite colors*

























* jacket-tjmaxx


*tank-4Ever 21


*skirt-goodwill*

*bangle-plato's closet*

CONCERT'VATIVE FLOW

SO I WENT TO SEE ARTIST TREY SONGZ IN CONCERT(GREAT TIMES), AND I WANTED SOMETHING BOLD BESIDES SEQUINS AND RHINESTONES -SO NEON WAS MY ANSWER! *dress courtesy of Asos.com*





I WANTED TO ACCENTUATE THE DRESS WITH ONE OF MY FAVORITE PATTERNS OF THE SEASON, SO I CHOSE DECO(geometric patterns)- INSPIRED JEWELRY ALONG WITH A BEADED TEAL CLUTCH FOR A COOL, BLOCKING EFFECT=)



*ring and clutch courtesy of 4ever 21*





INSTEAD OF GOING AGAINST THE NEON COLOR WITH A BOLD LIP OR SMOKY EYE, I DECIDED TO DO A SOFT PINK PALLETE TO ALLOW MY DRESS TO STAND OUT**














LOVELIES, IM CURIOUS TO KNOW, HOW WOULD YOU ROCK YOUR NEON COLORS THIS SEASON???
