BFW 2014- Pure Barre

Better late than never right? Our local Pure Barre's had their own show at Birmingham Fashion Week and I have to say it kicked ass! They styled the models using clothing they sell in the boutique's and they did such a fantastic job it makes me want to live in active wear. I loved the model's hair and make-up as well as all the accessories they added. It obviously wouldn't work in real life, like who wears arm bands and body chains to the gym, but these chic's looked amazing. And speaking of the model's they seem to have found the most gorgeous girls in Bham for this show! Click below to see more...

So here we have my first set of professional photos taken by an extremely talented photog Brad Lugar (he's not bad to look at either). Aren't they great?! We went to Railroad Park in downtown Birmingham and took about a million photos and these are the ones we ended up with. For the shoot I decided to wear my new romper by Bless'ed Are The Meek which I'm totally obsessed with! Before the shoot I text Brad a pic of the outfit so he had an idea of what he was working with and he asked me if it was underwear (the romper). LOL, boys. Anyway, I decided my Urban Gem necklace was a good fit for the romper because of the different shades of blue and my Phillip Lim Cody heels (which are starting to look a bit worn BTW) added some extra length to my short legs. That's probably one of my favorite fashion tips. Nude heels if they're the right color, and mine are maybe a shade too dark, will make your stubby legs look that much longer. Seriously. You can never go wrong with a nude heel or sandal like these if you have a lighter skin tone, or these, or this pair if you're a bit darker. Consider that your obvious fashion tip of the day.

More to come from today's Blogger Conference...


Pattern Mixing or Busy Bee

blouse: Show Me Your Mumu, shorts: Three Floor, sandals and bag: Zara

So sorry for the blog silence but things have been pretty hectic around here lately. I've been on some interviews (with a couple call-backs. I'll let you know as soon as I do), I moved to Homewood, I've been playing kickball, meeting blogger friends, having a local photographer take some blog photos for me (coming soon), and preparing for Thursday's Free People (FP ME) shoot. Plus this weekend I have a blogger conference which I'm really looking forward to (Bloganista Mini-Con, only 6 tickets left!). The new apartment complex I moved to is in an excellent location. So much better than where I lived my first year in Birmingham not realizing it was the worst spot to live in this town. It was only bad because of the traffic really but Homewood is a great area and central to pretty much everything good in Bham. As for kickball, we've played 6 games and got our first tie! We lost all the others :(. I bought a super cute Bless'ed Are The Meek romper and wanted to take some good pictures in it, so my new friend Brad, who happens to be a photographer, took some photos at Railroad Park and I can't wait to show them to you. And last but not least, Thursday should be really fun! Free People contacted me and asked if I'd like to be a part of a shoot they're doing here in Birmingham. Obviously I jumped at the chance, so basically we are to meet at the store and then we are going to three different locations around Birmingham. It's a whole day thing and if allowed I'll definitely take some pics for the blog. So I have some fun things coming up and can't wait to share! Talk soon!


Lead & Camo

t-shirt: Splendid - Color is Lead (and here), necklace: House of Harlow,
 skirt, sandals, and bag: Zara, sunglasses: Chloe

My new favorite t-shirt! I had heard Splendid carried nice tee's but when I saw one in Saks and on sale it was love at fist sight. The loose fit, scoop neckline and perfect sleeves, just perfect. I think it's time to get my hands on a few more!

 I hope everyone is enjoying the Holiday weekend. I had a good time watching the fireworks last night but the rest of the weekend has so far been spent packing and selling some furniture on Craigslist. That's right. I'm moving next Friday to Homewood which is closer to downtown Birmingham and the neighborhood of my dreams. Almost. While I will be renting another apartment for the next year I have plans to buy a home after that. Fingers crossed everything goes to plan!
