I’ve got a permanent tan so I can cross that off the old booty to-do list, the other stuff I’m definitely in need of. This was the 5th day out of 6 days for my Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Swim adventure so you know I was pretty much exhausted. The pouring rain that decided to come join the fun didn’t help either. I had to be on the beach super early to host a brunch with Salon Allure for their Sample Sale and I was sort of feeling like going home after. I’m glad I decided to stick around. Visiting the Wildfox Swim Cabana with my girl Natalie perked me right up.
I’m pretty sure I scared a few people with my photos on instagram, making them think they’d missed the show somehow. The actual runway show would take place the next day. It was really nice getting to see the collection up close and personal and getting to try on all the sunglasses. I thought last year’s collection was cute and fun but this year’s is sort of a must have. It’s really wearable, sexy and still really fun. That floral high waisted number…sigh.
So with Salon Allure, BCBG (meh), Gottex (skipped this one in favor of Wildfox and a real meal at The Raleigh), and Wildfox behind me on my agenda next was Red Carter, L*Space, Luli Fama, White Sands, and Suboo. Whew. Um…

I’m wearing my “I’m sick of the heat and I’m ready to go home” outfit. Haha. Basically a Urban Outfitters bralette, a Unif top, a hat so I don’t have to worry about my hair, and a Forever 21 skirt you can’t see. Oh and Hellz Bellz x Vans flats. Yeah that’s right…flats. I mean they’re leather and suede with buckles and chains so they’re totally acceptable.
Shardea Washington!!! She’s got a lot of hair, so this is impressive. Love working with her & seeing her working.
Red Carter was a really fun show. Loved the prints, the metallics, the disco ball purses, the styling, the basketweave pony tails, all of it. So well done.
L*Space was typical, nothing to write home about. Definitely pieces I’d want. That whole bronze body makeup thing was a big no though. Luli Fama was nice but it was long. Like really long. Like look at your watch long…ok you get it. White Sands as always was pretty and very girly. Loved their high waisted number but the styling was bad. Suboo was PERFECT. It was my first introduction to the brand and I loved so much. I left my camera in Natalie’s hotel room unfortunately but it was almost better that way. I want you guys to see the video from the show and drool with me. They have a Refinery 29 Shops deal going on right now too that’s just calling my name.
