BFW Opening Night Party

"Every year the women of New York (or Boston) leave the past behind and look forward to the future... this is known as Fashion Week."Carrie Bradshaw Sex and the City: The Movie 

September is like an unwritten New Year for the fashion industry. The Bible size magazines can be found in mailboxes & in stores. Fashion week has been completed in NYC, London, & Paris. Leaving the past season behind & looking a head to the future like our girl Carrie said. I had the pleasure of attending Boston Fashion Week's Opening Party with my coworker & friend Rebecca of The Imbeccable Blog Friday September 23rd.

The evening begun with a pomegranate cosmo provided by Wanderlush & light hor derves. Attendees mingled & had the opportunity to shop the pop up shop which included Holly Nichols illustrations, Kent Stetson handbags, & beautiful shawls from Denise Hajjar. Of course I couldn't leave empty handed. Holly Nichols & Kent Stetson launched their collaboration handbag which you can imagine is everything fabulous. One was even auctioned!

The night continued as 14 lucky attendants were live sketched by Holly Nichols herself. Cool, right?! Proceeding the sketching was a roof top Denise Hajjar fashion show. Her line exuded old school Hollywood glam. Her collection showcased different shades of red, velvet, sequins, ombré fabrics, & over the knee boots. It was a stunning show!

Nights like the Boston Fashion Week Opening party inspire me.

Thirsty for Sangria

"Sangria, an exotic red that evokes a sense of glamorous adventures and faraway destinations..." (Pantone)

Sangria is smooth, fruity, and delicious; making it one of my favorite drinks. Not only is it an enjoyable beverage consumed by many, it happens to be a chic color that is making a splash this fall. According to the world's color authority, Pantone, Sangria is one of the "it" colors for fall. This beautiful deep red does not wash you out and looks great on most skin types. To give you some inspiration, pictured is a variety of clothing pieces in the latest color trend. Want to give this shade a taste test? Interested in playing with Sangria but, feel a little hesitant experiment with accessories. I would suggest trying a scarf, statement necklace, earrings, tights, or a handbag! When wearing Sangria colored clothing you can accessorize with either silver or gold jewelry. This color is rich and perfect for fall. I dare you to give Sangria a fashion sip!

Stay Sassy xo
