HOW TO: Dress for Phoenix Fashion Week

style pic 1  style pic 3

Fashion week is such an exciting time; mingling with bloggers and designers, seeing the latest trends, and the best excuse to debut your most fashion forward new clothes! Fashion shows are the perfect time to show the world your creative side, and to just have fun with the art of dressing up.

However, over dressing and under dressing are equally as bad. Stylist Candace Carter advises, “some people want to be extremely extravagant, but it is best to dress ‘in the middle.’” If you overdress, it might take away from the designer’s clothes and can be disrespectful.  If you under dress, you will give off the impression that you don’t care, also seeming rude.

This is a time to wear something different from your everyday work and play clothes.  Wear that elegant dress you’ve been dying to show off. Keep it simple and then add a statement necklace or a flashy set of heels. Are you friends with a designer who is showing? Show your support and wear their brand! If you are coming to fashion week to network or represent your brand, dress a little more conservative and leave the sexy at home. If you are there to have fun and be with your friends, experiment and let your personality shine through the clothes.

Since Arizona is still rather warm this time of year, opt for weather appropriate, yet chic choices.  Open-heeled booties, silk button downs, and midi skirts are great choices.  A great way to ease into the fall season is to choose a warmer color palette when selecting outfits for the event.

Check out the pictures to help get your creative juices flowing. See you on the catwalk!

Street Style with PHXFW: ASU Campus

Arizona State University is known as one of the largest schools in the state. With housing some of the most prestigious programs nationwide, it’s no wonder that the school has enrolled over 80,000 students this year alone. What’s great about this college environment is that it offers a wide range of styles and while students crack open the books, they look good doing it. Being a student may not always be glamorous, but those featured in this week’s street style make fashion a priority.

VIDEO Inspiration: On the Street with Bill Cunningham

bill cunningham

Are you an on-the-go fashionista working hard to stay up-to-date with new fashion trends, lusting over street style and always looking for inspiration? Ok, maybe that’s me, but there are loads of local fashion bloggers and professionals out there trying to do the same.

What better place to turn to for this than the NY Times style section and specifically, Bill Cunningham’s genius ‘On the Street’ video series.

As a huge fan of his since first watching the documentary (it’s on Netflix by the way!), I have been obsessed with listening to Cunningham’s energetic trend reports while working, writing or to generally stay educated and inspired, fashionably speaking.  If you haven’t watched (or listened) to his ‘On the Street’ video series, prepare to be as obsessed as I am, while staying on-top of the fast paced fashion trends that come and go each season.

Plus, with each video providing a first hand look at NYC and it’s amazing street style, what’s not to love?

What fashion trends have you spotted on the street here in Phoenix and are currently inspired by?  What do you think of Bill Cunningham’s ‘On the Street’ trend report videos? Post a comment below and let me know!

PHXFW Street Style: Arizona Blogger Conference at the Saguaro Hotel 4/28

The PHXFW Media Team was thrilled to attend the first-ever Arizona Blogger Conference last Saturday, and we were BEYOND impressed! From the awesome goodie bags stuffed with full size products, jewelry, gift cards (and more!) to the beautiful venue and amazing speakers, the event was simply blogger heaven. The event began with pictures in front of a Madewell denim quilt backdrop (we heard this event was its next stop after Coachella!), a friendship bracelet station and loads of delicious bites and vendors to shop. Later into the evening debuted a fabulous model from The Agency Arizona, who showed off her best blogger poses to the sold out crowd. Guests were led into an intimate room at the Saguaro, perfect for the presentations by some talented speakers, covering everything from lighting and photography to leveraging your blog as a business. The event concluded with an exciting raffle, catchy music and bloggers raking through their goodie bags (myself included!).

Overall, the Media Team met so many passionate fashion bloggers, spotted some friendly faces like Dustin of Indie Stitch and Heather of LA Fashion Snob and truly enjoyed ourselves. We couldn’t be more happy for the Phoenix Style Collective, who, along with PHXFW, honestly believe in the blogging community in Arizona and offer up their support with events such as this. Now THAT is something to blog about!

In case you were wondering, snapping the evening’s street style couldn’t have been more fun, seeing all the stylish bloggers the event attracted. The chic Saguaro Hotel backdrop didn’t hurt either!
