Sporty Chic Football Fashion!

Hey Dolls!!

Are any of you "Game Day" fanatics?  Well,  if you aren't, there are plenty of Sportsnistas out there who take Game Day very seriously. I mean its a BIG deal!  If you're anything like me you know there is always a way to incorporate fashion into practically anything, right?  Well, why not Game Day? Whether you like to watch it at home on the couch, at a sports bar with friends or in the stadium you can cheer your favorite team on in style! 

This lovely outfit was inspired by one of Fanatics NFL Jerseys and I created a look that I thought would be fun, fashionable, and still embrace the love of Game Day.  So I went over to Polyvore and created this fun and fashionable look supporting my hometown football team, the St. Louis Rams. 

As you Dolls know, I am not really a football girl, I'm a die-hard NBA girl.  Laker Fan to be exact.  But hey, I thought it would be fun to play along and this is what I came up with!

This was actually fun to create.  I feel like this look can be worn to an actual stadium, sports bar or to a friend's house to watch the game.  I will say that if I was going to the stadium to watch the game in a Sky Box, I'd glam it up a bit more. Only because you have more of a luxurious experience viewing the game that way.  But if I was in the stands, I'd opt for a more casual look like the one displayed here. 

I hope you Dolls like what I created.  I can't wait til' basketball season starts because I'd love to create some  Laker game day looks.  So come back and check me out Dolls, basketball season is right around the corner.  And to all my Sportsnistas, STAY FLY!

HAUTE: The Runway Show Presentation 2014

Hey Dolls!!

Haute Accessories Week went out with a bang once again!  This year's Runway Show was definitely in a class by itself and I loved every minute of it.  I love that the show's audience grows bigger every year.  I love the newly added addition of involving fashion lovers in Haute Accessories Week by allowing people the chance to vote for which designer would close out the Runway Show.  You have to do things to keep your audience yearning for more, and The Fashion Movement did just that with added some new elements this year that were noticeable.

On Friday night, The Fashion Movement showcased an intimate array of designers dedicated to accessory design.  I had the opportunity to speak to a few of the designers after the runway show and what I loved hearing from them the most is that their designs are not cookie cutter and you are guaranteed to walk away with a one of a kind piece.  For me that is definitely a plus because who doesn't want to be able to say they are rocking a one-of-a-kind design.  By definition a fashion accessory is said to be an item used to contribute in a secondary manner to the wearer's outfit.  I believe the pieces in this show provoke an update to that definition.  Here is a sneak peek of some of their displayed designs before the show began.
The unity in the Tampa Fashion Community is fantastic.  The Fashion Movement managed to combine the Fashionable efforts of The Christian Fashion Week founders, including Mayra Gomez who was the event host, a dynamic group of Fashion Bloggers, glam squad, event photographers and of course the adorable, lovely and handsome models.

The Runway Show was closed out by Nicolette of Tenique Designs as she received the most votes and was selected by fashion lovers to close out the show!

At the end of the show, The Fashion Movement's own Lacey B. Smith received a well deserved standing ovation for the Haute Accessories Runway Show.  In his speech, he made sure to acknowledge all those who are involved in making the show the success that it was.  One of my favorite parts was when Lacey made sure to explain how essential for the Tampa Fashion community to work together as it is beneficial for growth.  I also love that he gave props to Fashion Bloggers and their influence in the Fashion World.
