Fashion Week San Diego: Day 1



FWSD lookFashion Week San Diego is finally here!  After watching weeks of fantastic fashion activity from around the world, it’s our turn to have some fashion fun!  Night 1 kicked off with the Art & Beauty Behind Fashion event.  We got to listen to industry experts about upcoming trends for Fall 2013 and Spring 2014.  We also got some amazing tips to recreate some of the hair looks we saw on the runway into wearable everyday looks.  One of the panelists, Dean Hall of HALL & SAKS,  even gave me a shout out because of my super loud McQ Alexander McQueen dress!  If you ever wanted to see me blush to a deep shade of red, that was your moment!

One of my favorite discussions was about upcoming nail trends.  I love nail trends so for me it was really exciting!  The co-founder of CND, Jan Nordstrom Arnold, gave us some really great inspirations for the coming months.  I’ll share more of her tips in another post.  Stay tuned!

Fashion shows will take over for the next 3 nights and I couldn’t be more excited.  It’s so inspiring to see the designers’ imaginations come to life.  I’ll be taking photos and posting them on my social media and on the blog so make sure you’re following me for the most up-to-date news!  Here are some night 1 highlights.

Like many of you, I’m a huge fan of watching all the fashion week shenanigans from around the world.  The street style is about as much fun to see as the designer’s creations for the coming season.  So I’m super excited to be attending San Diego Fashion Week from October 2nd – October 6th.  There will be 26 designers from around the world showcasing their beautiful looks.  If any of you are attending as well, stop me and say hello!  🙂

Tickets available here.

Last time there was a collaboration like this, it sold out in about an hour!  This time around, Rihanna has collaborated with MAC Cosmetics to create a full line of makeup.  Other than the amazing rose gold packaging, the colors are meant to complement all skin tones.  They look like they’re going to be a perfect fall makeup addition!  Get yours at MAC Cosmetics online starting today (September 30th) or when it releases to all carriers on October 3rd!




Statement earrings are really making a come back and I couldn’t be happier.  It adds instant glam to all your looks and are available in so many shapes, colors, and designs that you’ll never be bored!  Here are a few statement earrings I’m loving.  Click image for more info.

This little portable steamer was the best $20 I spent in my whole life.  It’s so nice not to have to lug out a regular steamer if I’m just steaming one item!  And it’s also small enough that I can pack it when I travel and still have room for 16 pairs of shoes!  If you don’t already have one of these, get one!  Your life is about to change.

Like most women, I have a soft spot in my heart for Justin.  I mean, the guy can dance, sing, act, dress, and is just plain good looking!  So I’ve obviously downloaded the album this morning and will be listening to it on repeat for the better part of today.  Stay tuned on my Twitter account to hear my thoughts on the album once I’ve given it a good listen.  You can order yours on itunes or right here!

Happy Lusting!
