Last Thursday I attended the Express Runway show in Miami. It was massive, I love a well-organized, flawlessly run event. The clothes that came down the runway were styled to perfection. You can shop womens and mens now! I wanted quite a few pieces myself. Magdelena Frackowiak and Jourdan Dunn shut down the runway with their walks basically. I interviewed Jourdan before the show started. She was super sweet. Here’s how our little chat went:

1. If you weren’t a model, you’d be…in performing arts, dance or acting.
2. You started modeling because…it was better than going to college *laughs*
3. A trend you’d NEVER try…UGGS!
4. Your mantra before hitting the EXPRESS runway…well they tell us be sexy, and confident. I just let the alcohol flow through my body. ;)
5. You’re most proud of your…giving birth to my son with no drugs.
6. Every chic woman needs…a chic handbag



Lace & Leather At BCBG

I missed the BCBGMAXAZRIA show brunching with Levi’s and LuckyFabb, which is probably my fashion week regret as I missed several other gems as well. Enough of my whining though…I can really get into what’s going on at BCBG. The harness situation is of course a favorite. I wore a harness during fashion week and had the look planned pre-show. I love the all leather, no metal harness style overlaid on these gorgeous dresses. The lace is superb and placed in the most perfect places. Here are some of my favorite looks.

I definitely urge you to watch the video if you haven’t already seen it. I love the atmosphere and the music. Until Spring 2013 check out what’s available from BCBG now below. You’re welcome.

Gettin’ Wild

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…

Shardea Washington!!! She’s got a lot of hair, so covering it under this wig 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.They have a Refinery 29 Shops deal going on right now too that’s just calling my name.
