2015 Fashionably Fab Meet & Greet

Hey Beauties. . . . I am super excited about my 1st annual Fashionably Fab Meet & Greet this summer. The event will take place in Tampa, FL where I'll be hosting an intimate group of my fashionably fabulous friends. I wanted to finally get a chance to step away from the keyboard and meet the very fabulous folks that I enjoy writing for...YOU! This gives me the opportunity to learn more about you, find out what you'd like me to write more about and most importantly--- provide a fashionably fabulous environment for you to network and grow. Because that is what it's all about. I invite you to come out and enjoy great music, complimentary hor d'oeuvres and champagne cocktails all while mixing and mingling with fashionably fabulous professionals. I've also brought along two fabulous guest panelists to take part in the fun. Join myself, model and businesswoman Mayra Gomez and industry leading Relationship Coach, Lea Barnard for an open and spirited dialogue on love & relationship. This is going to be one heck of an evening. And of course, the evening simply wouldn't be fashionably fabulous without fashion. So I've got some of the hottest models in Tampa ripping the runway in a series of curated looks from the Fashion Fab Boutique Fall/Winter 2015 Collection. It will be a fashionably fabulous evening in style. The event will benefit a local charity of my choice. More to come on the charity. You guys know that I am all about fashion with a cause. Lastly, all of my fashionably fabulous friends get to walk away with fashion fab bags that will be loaded with lots of amazing gifts and goodies.

Beauty Buzz | Beautyblender

I've witnessed all of the ranting and raving about Beautyblender's awarding winning makeup sponge applicator. So recently, I decided to give it a try. Its design allows for flexible and versatile makeup application in places most hard to reach by traditional brushes. The original runs around $20 at select beauty supply stores like Sephora, and I've gotta tell you...it is worth every-single-penny! I can't live without it. I mostly use it to blend my concealer, the results are simply AMAZING! seriously, I wish I had added this product as part of my makeup arsenal much much sooner. It's a beauty must-have for me. What are some of your beauty favorites?

The competition, a platform for Wardrobe/Fashion Stylists to promote, market and establish their brands is certainly capturing the attention of many local and national fashion enthusiast; and rightfully so. The Stylists presented various looks to an independent panel of judges who chose the winner based on the total scoring in various point categories.

The event brought many of the Bay Area's fashion insiders together; from designers, models, bloggers and fashion hopefuls and enthusiasts. The winner received a $550.00 cash prize, the winner’s plaque and a $100.00 gift certificate courtesy of Fresh Threads Warehouse.

For the Love of Dots

There is something classically bold and endearing about the polka dot print. Fashionistas have embraced their dotted affinity for decades. Women like Twiggy, Audrey Hepburn to modern-day beauties like Solange Knowles have showcased their stylish interpretation on the classic print. I love polka dots for a variety of reasons. One---they are perfect for mixing prints. Two---they work perfectly on any body type. And three----they put the fun in fashion. Check out a couple of my favorite dotted picks below. Which is your favorite piece?
