Interior Design Fashion Show prep

Xteeener - ASD IIDA Georgia Dressed - 01

Hey guys! I thought I would take you behind the scenes of a fun little opportunity I had with ASD Inc., a design firm that encompasses interior, architectural, and graphic design. Each year they enter a look into IIDA Georgia Dressed which is a runway show comprised of garments made out of non-traditional materials. Sounds awesome right?? Do we have any Project Runway fans? Yes, think unconventional challenge (I couldn’t help myself haha). They brought me in to conceptualize the makeup and do a trial before runway day.

You will often find me doing more wearable looks for weddings, engagement sessions, and the like but it really excites me to switch gears every now and then because it keeps me on my toes and inspired in different ways.

Peachy Elegance

Xteeener - OOTD Peachy Elegance  - 01

I had the honor of attending my friend’s wedding recently and I am so incredibly happy for her! She is one of those selfless and thoughtful friends that make you want to be a better person than you already are so it’s no surprise that she is loved by many.

This adorable dress had been sitting on my clothing rack for too long now just waiting for the right occasion to be worn. I’m definitely kind of having an oversized and billowy moment. :)

Grid Lines in the City

_W5C2530

Hi guys! A silhouette I never tire of is a looser fitting top and tight fitted bottoms especially when the bottoms have plenty of stretch to them so that I can eat to my heart’s desire ^_^ mmm food. This is what happens when I work while i’m hungry haha anyways I digress. Doesn’t this bold grid printed top make you think of a city’s grid infrastructure? I just have a thing for cleans lines so deem me a forever stripes and checkered print lover.

Goodbye Summer!

_W5C2377-3

Summer is officially over y’all which means my favorite season is here! Time to pull out some thicker knits and rich hues to mix and match with your summer faves. I love this transitioning period because it allows you to be creative and work with what you already have in your closet. This past weekend I felt like going a little flirty, a little elegant while still grounding the look with a chunky heel to tone down the girly-ness.

Breaking the Rules + Giveaway!

_W5C1672_Fotorv2

You may have noticed that I have been donning the midi length quite frequently lately (unintentionally) and by nature these types of dresses or skirts tend to be on the dressier side. Because they generally also hit around the mid calf area, pairing the look with heels is usually the safer option. I went against everything, because I can. And I think it’s a lot more fun this way. If you feel good in it, wear it because in my opinion when it comes to personal style there are no rules. I styled this dress in a way that I could see myself roaming around the streets in or even on a school campus in.

NYFW Outfit 2

Xteeener - NYFW OOTD2 - 03

Here is the second look I wore for the evening time to Charlotte Ronson’s Presentation for her S/S 2015 line at New York Fashion Week! The top and skirt are from her I ‘Heart’ Ronson Fall collection currently sold at JCPenney. It’s really fun to see how she drew inspiration from her Fall line to create more affordable pieces. I couldn’t help but feel like a boss lady in this one with the bold blue color and the houndstooth print paired with the ladylike cut. Head on over to my channel to see me Get Ready in this look!
