I had the lovely opportunity to attend Houston’s first ever Smashin’ Fashion show last week.
This wasn’t your typical fashion show. First of all, it was a stylist competition where real women walked the runway. Houston style expert Sarah Shah, author of Dress Yourself Skinny organized the event and found 10 incredible stylists to compete with one another in a number of different categories.
It was fun to see stylists’ creations on the runway as opposed to a fashion designer’s. We were presented with pieces from many different designers, styled on real women that the audience could actually relate to.
The stylists ranged from a 13 year-old year old fashion blogger, a number of professional local stylists, to Houston’s Tissue sisters. (I’ve got a really good post for ya coming up soon talking all about these sisters and their online boutique: KISSUE!)
Not sure how the judges picked a winner from the group, but they did. Thomasina Burns from Styles for Life was crowned the Best Stylist, and took home a hefty chunk a change $$$.
I had a great time getting dressed up, attending the event, and meeting a bunch of wonderful ladies.
One of my favorite things about living in Houston is all of the opportunity and different events that go on here everyday There is something for everyone and I absolutely love it. From living in a town in TN with roughly 180,000 people, this is a nice change.
It’s ALMOST the weekend. Patrick and I plan on staying in, catching up on house work (I may DIY a mirror…we’ll see….) and cooking up a storm. We just saw The Hundred-Foot Journey and I am dying to whip up a really difficult meal in the kitchen because of this.
Hope you all have a great weekend!
