Baton Rouge Fashion Week Year 5

Well it’s a wrap for Year 5 of Baton Rouge Fashion Week and I am happy to say that it’s Big night was a big success. Hosted by the beautiful and talented Chelsea LeBlanc from WAFB,   and the equally talented and dapper Gerron Jordan from NBC 33, the night was filled with witty banter and unbelievable high fashion.

Designs included a whimsical vision of haute couture as visualized by the twelve year old (YES! you read that right…twelve) Alexandra Bujan, a sexy mod vibe by Just Joe, social messages on IME’s t-shirt line, dreamy lace creations by Altrage by Kelby Bell, and vintage with a modern take from Your Mother’s Closet.

There were several precious moments during the show. A two year old model in the making stole people’s hearts as she placed one leg in front of the other, hands on hips, and a face that meant business. She was there to give the people what they wanted and the crowd went wild. I must admit that I got a little emotional, and there were several proud momma judge moments when I saw several of the models walk down the runway. Some of these young men and ladies have been doing this show for several years now and when you see them grow up in front of your eyes, it just tugs at your heart strings. There was also a lot of genuine gratitude too for the opportunity of participating in a fashion show.

It was a very special night. Congratulations to Brandon Campbell and his incredible talented and hardworking team for bringing this vision to life in the Capitol City.

Until the next post.

V Day

Hay girl (or boy) hay it’s Valentines Day!

In past years I have griped of no one wearing red or pinks on this day but this year I find myself being a little hypocritical. Let me explain. We all understand the over commercialization of the holidays. We get it. But it certainly gives bloggers, social media coordinators, and communications professionals something to post.

As I was shopping for others yesterday I found myself telling those helping me find something “I don’t want anything too big, or too expensive. I honestly think this day is a little silly.” I think morally we should always strive (lord knows I am NOT perfect and that my attitude is not always 100) to think of others, offer help when needed, and give without any expectations of the other person giving you something in return. That’s the way it should be. Now, do not get me wrong because the flip slide to this story is that I strongly believe in establishing boundaries and respect among friends. And you know sometimes people tend to over care, over share, and over step. Word to the wise. #stayinyourlane

BUT…. that is not what this post is about. Last year the off the shoulder trend dominated the summer and it is fascinating how strongly it has transgressed through the winter/fall. This winter, still, it is all about the shoulders. Whether it is off the shoulder or a cold shoulder, it is undeniable that this style is a dominant one right now.

I love everything about this topshop top. The style, the powder pink color, and the trumpet sleeves. The opposite of skinny jeans are these high waisted bell bottom jeans, which if worn with a high enough heel elongates your body. And I am obsessed with the tassel trend in jewelry. I find myself in the constant hunt for tassel necklaces and earrings. These hot pink ones just give me life.

Anyways, I have said too much. On the real and for realzies my wish for you is to have a wonderful day filled with love and laughter. And hey, a gift or two here and there would not be so bad, eh?

Until the next post, CIAO CIAO loves. Happy Valentines Day!



P.S. How beautiful was Beyoncé’s performance at the Grammy’s!!! She was a byzantine beauty and a goddess in her own right. And Blue Ivy stole my heart!!!

One of the most rewarding things blogging provides me is the opportunity to meet so many talented, driven, ambitious, and forward thinking people. And it doesn’t hurt that all of them are beautiful inside and out.

My involvement with Baton Rouge Fashion week for two years in a row placed new faces and labels on my radar. My favorite look of this year’s show was the t-shirt line chokolat creme. Their 2016 runway look is what I am recreating on this post. I love the message of empowerment and strength represented in this brand. And every queen needs a queen bee necklace. This set is from Olivia Palermo’s collab with Baublebar, and it is everything as is she.

Until the next post!



BRFW3 Model Search

Baton Rouge Fashion Week returns to Baton Rouge for a third year, thus calling this comeback season 3. It’s visionary force and creator, Brandon Campbell, plans to outshine previous years by fusing a diverse mix of fashion concepts. Campbell consistently fosters an inclusive event that showcases and features local, national, and even international talent when it comes to designers and models.

And speaking of models, on Friday January 22nd and Saturday January 23rd (see below for times and details) Baton Rouge Fashion Week is having a model search. I am returning as a Judge for my second year and cannot wait to see all the aspiring models that will walk the catwalk, werk it, and most importantly OWN IT ! Confidence is key.


OBRFW Big Night Was Red Hot!

Oneofakind Baton Rouge Fashion Week’s “Big Night” did not disappoint. The mere fact that the event was completely sold out was a great indicator of how well the Baton Rouge community supports, welcomes, and embraces the fashion industry.

Igor Matkovic was our host for the night. Matkovic, who is also the host of his own television program called “Style Savvy,” presented the 2015 Fashion Icon Award to the beautiful and talented model, actress and radio show personality Ms. Chenese Lewis.

Collections from brands such as Little Rock’s “Miss Smitty” featuring fun pieces for young girls, and Cupani Fashion by Lacie Cupani who presented amazing crocheted pieces were among the many that made their mark on this “Big Night.” Local designers such as Peyton Simms presented her line of printed t-shirts called “Perfectly Taylored,” and LSU School of Textile and Apparel Merchandising students also debuted their collections.

It was a great and amazing night. I wore red, had fun, ate amazing food from our local star Chef John Folse, and as my favorite TV personality Wendy Williams says: I was “dipping it and doing it” in the afterparty.

This was an amazing experience that I embraced with open arms and what did I get from it? I met beautiful people and got to hang with friends that I don’t get to see that often. I am looking forward to next year and to be so lucky as to be offered the opportunity to participate in Oneofakind Baton Rouge Fashion Week again I will be there in a heart beat. Brandon Campbell did an amazing job in coordinating an event of this magnitude and he had an amazing team of young ladies that helped him put this event together. SO BIG KUDOS to them as well!!! Their work does not go unnoticed.

Enjoy the pictures!

This past Saturday Baton Rouge fashionistas dressed in black and white to attend the Oneofakind Baton Rouge Fashion Week (OBRFW) fashion show hosted by the very talented and charismatic, Chenese Lewis (pictured above) . The show featured the collections from OBRFW founder Brandon Campbell, LSU fashion design alumni, Juju’s boutique, just to name a few.

It was a lively night with the Jupiter downtown parade in full swing outside of the Louisiana State Museum, and the amazing view of our state capitol serving as a back drop for the fashion show.  And I have to admit that everyone there looked beautiful!

Until the next post!
