kcfw: saturday night favorites
the kansas city fashion week kicked off at union station on saturday afternoon and every show was wonderful. i couldn't wait for the saturday night shows to begin.
i was able to go to dinner at the jacobson, inbetween the shows, with my fabulous blogger friends, lauren from classy and fab girl (a special thanks for letting me use some of your pics), morgan from eeny meeny miny morgan, erin from pretty, perfect, polished, carrie from fashionable way and jana from jana style. so many past experiences and tips were shared. it was a pleasure getting to hang out together!
as for the line of up designers, that alone got me excited to see the presentatoins.
the show kicked off with the uber talented and young kate walz. she's sixteen and can totally design her little butt off. her collection was highly conceptual. each look was constructed to perfection. the whole collection had a dressy hippie concept, that was gorgeous.
the lauren bander show was exactly what i wanted to see. i feel in love with her designs from her last collection and i could not wait to see what she had created. she even told me this was her best collection yet. and it totally is. her collection has everything; tulle, sparkle, leather, and knits. i was blown away and so happy about every look she presented.
and the grand finale was brought by the one and only laura kathleen. talk about one talented lady, i mean she was on project runway and project runway all-stars. her collection was exactly what you would expect her to bring: chic and sophisticated. i am obsessing over the white strapless flute dress that walked down the runway, and then laura rocked it in green. amazing. the gorgeous black fabric is an amazing phenomenon called neoprene, and it's washable. i mean is that for real? it's just to pretty and perfect to wash, right?
as for what i wore - i did a quick change after dinner and i will let you in on the detes in my next post. in the mean time, mark your calendars for march 27th 5pm - 7pm. i am hosting another fabulous shopping event at ruby rouge in downtown overland park! we're are launching into spring and we want to style you. so, bring in a piece or two from your closet and i will help you style it for sunnier days. ruby rouge has some amazing new pieces! on thursday you will save 20% on your whole purchase! i can't wait to get you styled for spring!
