Phoenix Fashion Week: Spring into Fashion

Last Friday, Phoenix Fashion Week held its annual Spring into Fashion event highlighting Arizona's Top 5 Stylists and local boutiques.  Being an AZ fashion blogger, I couldn't wait to attend!  I brought along my photographer (also known as my BFF) Kiersten Graber to enjoy in the festivities, including an official press conference, blogger lounge, socializing, live music entertainment, the Spring into Fashion show, and after party.  The whole night was a fashionista's dream and I couldn't wait to share it with you all!

To start the evening off, a select number of photographers, journalists, and bloggers attended the Phoenix Fashion Week 2014 press conference, in which we all got to ask the local boutique owners, buyers, and stylists, who were featured in the show, questions about upcoming trends, career advice, closet staples, etc.  The panel of interviewees included stylists Rochelle York who teamed up with Kim Kendall, owner of Clothes Minded, Yekatherina Bruner who styled Allie Ollie BoutiqueVanessa Renee who teamed up with Fresh Start TreasuresJessica Hunter who styled 7 Diamonds, and Jenesis Laforcarde who teamed up with Divaz Boutique.  It was fun to hear the stylists talk about what inspired them and what trends to expect this spring. 

After the press conference, Kiersten and I rocked the red carpet, mingled with fellow fashion bloggers, relaxed in the exclusive blogger lounge  (where we got incredible goodie bags filled with items I can't wait to blog about), ran into Jordan Wessel, Miss Arizona, and enjoyed live performances from local up-and-coming musicians.  

Enjoyed catching up with fashion blogger, Audree Lopez of Simply Audree Kate.  Fun fact:  we grew up in the same hometown and attended high school together.  Can't wait to see where fashion takes us!

Loved chatting with Jordan Wessel, a.k.a. Miss Arizona 2014, the soon-to-be Miss USA ;) 
Jordan and I were featured alongside one another in the recent Marie Claire April 2014 issue.

Tired from a long day of fashion (not complaining), Kiersten and I couldn't resist taking a post fashion show selfie, documenting the moment and our outfits.  Kiersten rocked a Charlotte Russe blouse, American Rag skirt, and H&M wedges, while I wore a Missguided dress, Daily Look purse, and Grey City platform boots.  

Hope you enjoyed Spring into Fashion and a little sneak peek of a day in the life of a blogger. 

 Xoxo, Shelly

  1. I am curious to find out what blog platform you're working with?
    I'm experiencing some small security problems with my latest blog and I would
    like to find something more safe. Do you have any solutions?
