Sneak Peak

Hola chicas this past week has been GREAT with the start of New York Fashion Week, Fashion’s Night Out and Simon Fashion Now I’ve been in a little fashion haze. I wanted to share an invitation-only event I attended at the Houston Galleria on Wednesday, it was a sneak peek event for bloggers and others called Before the Runway Simon Fashion Now. The event was the first of its kind and gave us a up close and personal look at the latest trends and a chance to view some looks that would be presented in the fashion shows later in the week. So first up my outfit details, of course, and then all the details on the event further below.

I was going for an equestrian-inspired look to embrace the Fall trend.  My favorite riding boots paired with colored jeans and light sheer top completed with a little arm party and a chunky short statement necklace.  Nothing too exciting but comfortable, casual and on trend for the season.
Top – Forever 21, Jeans – Romeo&Juliet Couture, Boots – Zara (similar here), Necklace/Bracelets – Bevello

Now for the event details hosted by Jacque Ellis, Assistant VP of Corporate Special Events and creator of Simon Fashion Now and stylist Leslie Rivas.  The ladies chatted with us about current trends and shared a few pearls of wisdom.  To quote Jacque, “If you won’t walk out of the dressing room to the mirror don’t buy it!”  Leslie’s top items to incorporate for the season menswear inspired pieces and leather – real or eco are both more timeless selections for the season.  On to some of my favorite looks from the preview…
