Cotton Street Style 11.16.12

Road To The Runway...

Cotton is searching the nation to find the best cotton style from different regions of the nation. The winning look from each region will receive a trip to South Beach and $2,500 to attend the 24 Hour Runway Show on March 1st and 2nd! 1,440 cotton looks will be walking the runway (that's one look per minute) FROM DAY TO NIGHT.....Amazing!!! Cotton has picked six bloggers (Fashion Influencers) from around the country to help them pick the top looks. The Fashion Influencers will help pick the best of the best, and America will vote on 6 regional winners who will inspire a nation of cotton style enthusiasts.

Arm Candy... Mix up your bracelets by adding a watch on your wrist. The more bracelets the better. I love this look and its so easy to make a bunch of bracelets look chic with a bold faced watch.

The easiest way to venture into the animal print trend for fall is to start with accessories. Try adding an animal print scarf, handbag, or ballerina flat into your wardrobe. This will be a cheaper and more subtle way of incorporating the trend into your wardrobe. I love mixing in my leopard scarf to add pattern into a solid look.

Halls Crown Center Fashion Blogger Tour 11.8.12

Last night I was invited to attend a blogger event at Halls Crown Center. I was so excited to meet new bloggers in KC and to also see some familiar faces! I was pleasantly surprised to see so many fashion bloggers all together! The blogging and fashion community in Kansas City has grown so much over the past couple of years and it is so exciting to be apart of it!


My fellow fashionistas and I were treated to complimentary snacks and wine with a grand tour of Halls Crown Center. There were raffled giveaways and of course vibrant red swag bags for attending, $25 gift card, and beautiful blue and turquoise earrings!

Blue and Turquoise leaf patterned earrings
Red Swag Bag, Rachel Zoe Makeup bag, and beautiful leaf patterned earrings, and $25.00 gift card
I purchased a Steve Madden cognac satchel bag with my $25.00 gift card! The bag was originally $98.00 on sale 40% off!

 I enjoyed the tour of each department - Halls Downstairs, Halls Men's, Women's, Beauty, Kid Oh! and Accessories. The evening ended in Women's Wear with a presentation by my fellow Fashion Group International - KC Board Member, Tanya Gold. She pulled several pieces of some of the hottest trends and brands currently carried at Halls. Vegan Leather pants, Rabbit fur vests, Neon, and of course some holiday inspired sequins dresses. The price points at the Halls Crown Center location are more reasonable for me than the Plaza location, but like Tanya said in her presentation, two halls are better than one and they both compliment each other very well.
