BFW 2014 Kick-Off Alabama Ballet Costume Gala

 Dress: ASOS, heels: Boutique 9, bag: Target

This past Saturday night was the kick-off party for Birmingham Fashion Week which starts tonight. So excited! We had the pleasure of viewing costumes used in past productions of the Alabama Ballet, had delicious hors d'ourves served by Kathy G Catering, and were even treated to a two woman ballet dance. It was beautiful and such a wonderful and perfect way to kick-off BFW.

Poll: Which Fashion Icon's Hair Should I Try?

Keira Knightly: Brown, length similar for the most part

Olivia Palermo: My ultimate style icon, yes she has long hair and I do plan on letting it grow

 Jaime King: Gorgeous, gorgeous girl, love her long bob, would love hair this blonde but man that would be damaging. Plus, would it work with my skin tone?

Nicole Richie: Love her! She's petite like me though we carry different skin tones.
 Emma Roberts: I am loving what she did with her hair, The short, blonde do suits her for sure. But, would it suit me?

Navy, White and Leopard

sweater: J.Crew (30% off with BIGSALE)
Zara skirt: similar here $here $$, and here $$$
Zara bag: similar here $ and here $$
 heels: Calvin Klein: same in different print $, similar here $$, similar here $$$

I bought this skirt a while ago and finally put it to good use. I love midi skirts even though on my petite frame 'fashion rules' say I should avoid them. Well, screw that! I love the modest length and even though I'm covered up here I will totally rock this skirt in the coming months with a cute crop top. 


BFW Costume Gala

Please join us for a special night as we kick off Birmingham Fashion Week at the Alabama Ballet Center for Dance. Enjoy live entertainment, drinks and hors d’oeuvres and a rare opportunity to view some of the incredible costumes produced in the Alabama Ballet Costume Shop. Advance tickets to the event are $35 for an individual and $60 per couple. All individual tickets purchased at the door will be $40 per person. You can purchase your advance tickets here or by calling 205-322-4300.

This is one event I'm looking forward to covering. What better way to kick off our very own fashion week than with a costume gala? At the Alabama Ballet no less! So if you are anywhere in the state of Alabama I highly reccomend you get your tickets because this will be one event you won't want to miss!


In My Zara Shopping Bag

Bottom: Loose Fit Printed Trousers, Printed Off-Shoulder Top

It's no secret that I have an unhealthy obsession with Zara. I mean, they are just soooo good! If only my wallet good afford every single piece. So the above 8 are the first of my shopping series, things I wish I could get my hands on or maybe I will, just don't tell my husband. Shhhh...

Spring is in the Air (and BFW!)

shirt: Stolen from the man, pants: Forever 21 (similar here $, here $$, and here $$$), hat: Nasty Gal (similar here and here), pumps: Boutique 9 (same shoes different color) (Love this pair!) (same shoes as above in a size 6 and a 9), bag: Target (similar)

So, I found out yesterday I got approved for a press pass as media for Birmingham Fashion Week! Yay! I can't wait since this will be my first. Hopefully my new job will understand...maybe if I offer to talk up their business they will give me some leniency. This Saturday it kicks off with a Costume Gala/Kick-off Party hosted by the Alabama Ballet. Super excited and now I have to find something to wear!
