Thankfully it’s cooling off here in Arizona so you can now wear jeans…..KIDDING! It’s been just under 100 degrees all week. Pants of any kind are excruciatingly hot right now…and they are “haute” too.
In honor of this “feels-like-summer-but-it’s-really-autumn” weather we are having, I thought it would be fun to try to wear jeans (2nd time since fall started). When it’s this hot and you feel the need to wear pants, you’ve got to wear white.
And more white.
At least it’s long sleeved and long pants, right? That has to count as semi-fall wear…right? 😉
Wishing you gorgeous weather wherever you are!
It has been an interesting week around here. On my way home from the Project Pink fashion show & fundraiser my daughter called me from Zurich. (She is on her gap year building her art portfolio and living on a teeny-tiny budget while traveling around Europe for a year). She had no place to stay because her bus from Italy arrived after her hostel closed. And she didn’t have enough money for the week to to afford even 1 night at a hotel. Long story short, she found a way to make it work (with only minimal help asked of mom). And I finally had a chance to write today’s blog highlighting the fashion for a cause….
I was lucky enough to model for a fantastic organization, Arizona Assistance in Healthcare which raises funds for cancer patients so they can pay for non-medical related bills…like groceries or their electricity. They hosted a vintage themed “Project Pink” fashion show featuring some of the incredible looks from Fashion by Robert Black. (I know I wear – and show you – his collections a lot, but that is partially because so many of his pretty vintage pieces fit me better than modern clothing does. So not only am I a huge customer, I’m also one of his house models).
You can read more about the event HERE.
If you ever get an opportunity to go to this event, then you should come because you will have so much fun meeting dynamic women and hearing inspiring stories. Plus you can go back in time and see some of the most beautiful fashions from throughout the decades. And all of your financial support helps those in need.
Hope to see you at next year’s event!
Dress: vintage, Fashion by Robert Black | Purse: Jimmy Choo
My beautiful cousin just had the dreamiest wedding at the historic Wrigley Mansion in Phoenix, Arizona. Because she has a fabulous vintage glam style, I knew she would appreciate this vintage peach dress that I found at Fashion by Robert Black’s boutique.
People always ask me why I wear vintage….I wear vintage because of gorgeous dresses like this! When you wear vintage, at least 15 people will stop to compliment you on how gorgeous you look. And this dress was no exception!
The only bad part was I didn’t make time to go to a salon for a blow out, so after multiple styling attempts for a classic, old Hollywood style…and running short on time, I had to wear the low ponytail. Hey, it’s still a new cut and I’m learning how to re-style it. So far I’ve mastered 2 looks. Working on the vintage look next! 😉
What is your favorite part of this outfit?
Thank you for all your sweet comments from Phoenix Fashion Week. As promised, here are the details of that fabulous vintage Givenchy.
This is a classic and I firmly believe in fashion being a legacy. This beautiful dress will be one I cherish forever….or pass along to my daughter.
