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!

Dress: Odelyne // Belt: Express // Shoes: Jessica Simpson
All these festivals in the last couple of months have really inspired the bohemian side of me to come out. From crochet tops and denim shorts to lace dresses, I am all over the place wanting all these pieces.
I first saw this dress on Ashe from Dramatis Personae (I feel like Khaleesi saying this out loud) blog, and she looked absolutely stunning. After a compliment on twitter and a few words with the lovely Kelsi from My Style Smith! the impossible happened, I had the dress in pink!
It’s a lot of material but wearing it as Ashe wore it, with a belt, and these pumps took the dress to a whole different level. I wore it for a graduation and I thought I was overdressed yet I received compliments on it. So not a bad move. The best part is that you can also wear it with sandals and still look fabulous.
From the print to the material this Odelyne dress does not disappoint.
Until the next post!
Top: Peter Pilotto x Target // Skirt: Nordstrom // Shoes: Vince Camuto// Watch: Michael Kors
I can’t tell you how long I have been wanting to do a print on print look but I am always so scared of looking crazy when I step out of the house. So voila! Here it is! I’ve thought in the past to mix polka dots with stripes but by the time I make my mind to put the look together what I had in mind sells out, or it is no longer relevant. I bought this skirt from Nordstrom with this project in mind, and because it was fourteen bucks. Hello!!! Initially I had no clue what I was to pair this skirt with. Enter the Peter Pilotto collection for Target.
I am so obsessed with the Peter Pilotto collection for Target. The prints are so vivid and the colors compliment each other so well. He also came out with a dress that addressed my problem; a print on print dress. It is a “no worries because you are on trend” dress. Snap your fingers twice here! It was difficult (as usual) to leave Target with just one thing.
Hope this look gives you the strength to be bold and try something new. It’s scary I know (not my look or maybe it is?) but if you have any doubts hit me up! That’s what I am here for. Oh! And the best part about doing print on print is that you don’t have to over accessorize because you already have so much going on.
Until the next post!!
