Last night I was invited to a Spring & Summer Trend Fashion Presentation at Neiman Marcus. It was hosted by top Atlanta Mommy & Fashion blogger Trina, Baby Shopaholic. What is a Fashion Trend Presentation? Well, I didn't know until last night! LOL!! It was so nice. They turned a section of the store into a little soiree, along with hor-devours, wine & goodie bags! We had a front row seat for a mini-fashion show. Neiman Marcus Style Advisor, Dave Ferguson explained in great detail what is hot for spring and summer with fashionable examples! Let me give you one tip and one secret.
Tip: Blue jeans have taken a back seat right now to eye popping color jeans! Pink is the color of spring. Big earrings are in. Mis-matching colors, strips etc., is what's working now! Remember when you wanted to match your shirt with your shoes, well don't.
Secret: Green (all shades) is the coming color for the fall. And this years fall shoe trend is going for comfort! So, we will be on the look out for that.
I enjoyed the show because he showed us outfits that we could wear out with the girls, to work, or with our main squeeze. I liked his term, "Throw and Go!" but be cute and stylish while doing it. When you hear Neiman Marcus you might think BIG PRICE tag, and I did to > that is why I have never shopped there! But after last nights event, I plan to pay NM a visit more often. Mainly because perception is reality. I perceived it to be more than I can afford or was WILLING to spend, but they have different price points and SALES!!! They have beautiful things and I will no longer deny myself, unless I can't afford it! hahaha!
I felt like I was at a fashion week fashion show, because there were so many ALT fashion bloggers there taking pictures and chit chatting. Everyone showcased their own style too. I will tell you one thing, fashion wise... I used to be on it > I need to get back on it. I think being a mommy of two and just LIFE had slowed me down. Not saying I don't dress cute, because I think I dress cute!! BUT I want to be STYLISH! It's a difference! And as long as I continue to go to more events like these, I can't help but pick up tips. And of course, share them with you! Thanks for reading!
