A MUST Attend

OH MY GOSH!  Did you all know that we are about to have the first International Designer Fashion Show here in New Mexico?  Yep.  You heard me correctly and it’s officially known as: fashion-week-header-rev-nodate-1024x208I’m super excited to share this with you because I’ve got all the “behind-the-scenes skinny” and trust me when I tell you, this show is going to be AMAZING!

Lucky attendees of the show will get an up close and personal look at Fall collections from Brunello Cucinelli, ETRO, and THE ROW … just to name a few. Additionally,  attendees will view the works of such fab local designers as Orlando Dugi (DUGI) and Danielle of Atelier Danielle!  I mean, seriously, check out this incredible lineup.     YOU,  fellow lover of fashion,  must be about to explode right about now.

But, wait ~ there’s so much more.   We’re going to see an opening and a closing, 6 separate designer segments, a special collection of United Nude shoes being flown in from New York specifically for this show, a fashion presentation by costume designer, Renato Dicent and  I am now about to explode … SWAG!  Now you understand why I have titled this post: A MUST Attend.

As one not to be left out of a Must Attend,  I have not only already secured my ticket, I will be sitting in the front row.  Now, when one sits in the front row of a fashion show such as this, one must wear something fabulous and a quick inventory of my closet tells me that I have nothing fabulous to wear.  Nothing.  #FrontRowPressure

I have, however, come up with the perfect, cost-effective solution to this problem and just between YOU and ME

UMeI will be RENTING my front row fashion show outfit from Rent The Runway.

Rent The Runway gives you rental access to thousands of designer clothes. Like these fab options:

rent coll use

Osman dress   |||   Nicole Miller gown   |||   Blumarine jumpsuit

As well as access to gorgeous accessories, too. Like these:

rent coll2Oscar de la Renta necklace  ||  Kate Spade clutch  ||  Badgley Mischka belt

Did you see their great rental prices? Spend some time on their site because they have  so many items to select from, and not only just for special events.

Renting from Rent The Runway is super easy and you’ll have the option to rent for 4 days or 8 days (there’s an unlimited rental option too – read all about that here.)

I selected the most fab outfit to rent for my future appearance at the front row but I was struggling between 2 different sizes.  No problem ~ because Rent The Runway will send me a free 2nd size of the same item.

Now,  I suppose that both items could arrive and potentially not fit me.  Should this tragedy occur, my Plan B is to wear my infamous have worn to every event in town, again-and-again for, at least, the past 10 years green suit.

gs collDon’t make me do it, Rent The Runway.

And don’t YOU miss the opportunity to attend the Santa Fe Street Fashion Show.  Date:  Friday, August 28, 2015.  Secure your spot by purchasing your tickets here.

Will I be seeing you there?

Going Natural

Have you ever considered wearing a necklace made out of both tagua and rainforest seeds?

5ca1d8b1c18b1c7860993ddf7a5febb3Well, I certainly have ~ but that’s because I’m attracted to the beauty of these materials and I LOVE wearing anything that is interesting and different.  You know … won’t be spotted on every other gal in town.

And this is exactly what the online store, Natural Artist, will offer you ~ items that are interesting and different as well as beautiful, hand-made, fair trade and eco-friendly.   Natural Artist products are crafted by artisans in Latin America who use materials that are native to their communities such as ~ coconut, exotic wood, rainforest seeds and even real flowers.

Recently I selected 3 items c/o Natural Artist that I thought were fabulously interesting.  Starting with this rosewood necklace that was made in Costa Rica.  I thought it was so fab …

wm collI decided to wear it last week on my weekly Fashion Forward segment on 2 KASA Style. Oh, and other people thought it was pretty fab too.  Just ask my Instagram friends.

I was super attracted to this ring from Peru …

natural collbecause, although it’s actually made out of shell, there’s a bit of an animal print aspect to it.

And this bracelet, also crafted in Costa Rica,  I consider to be magical because it somehow distracted everyone from my complete lack of tan.

Camera Ready In A Flash

As an iFabboMember, I was invited to try the CLOSE UP Instant Wrinkle Reducer from Christie Brinkley authentic skincare …

cb pic1

and this is what I think about it. 

sallyWhy? Because I find that it WORKS! … albeit temporarily.   #I’llTakeIt

I’d like to explain my position on reviewing beauty products.  Yes ~ generally I am gifted an item to try and, in exchange for the gift, I am to provide my honest opinion on that item.

When I do devote an entire blog post to a product, it is because I like it, I love it or I’m undecided about it.  I won’t bother blogging about a product that I don’t care for, doesn’t work, or seems weird in some way … and there have been a few occasions where I have contacted the manufacturer and advised that I simply can not support their product.  Even if it comes in a creative, pretty  package, which has been known to sway me ~ especially those “diet” cookie packages.

Now, back to why the CLOSE UP Instant Wrinkle Reducer is worthy of me breaking out my gold heart tee for.

cb collHere’s the deal:  The product starts to works immediately upon applying by tightening and smoothing your skin, erasing fine lines and wrinkles, reduces under eye puffiness (!!!) and blurs skin imperfections all in under 2 minutes. You just wait for it to dry.  It can be applied around your eyes, your mouth and on your forehead AND the results can last for hours!  Are you pickin’ up what I’m puttin’ down?!  It temporarily reduces the appearance of your wrinkles and then kind of just “holds” it there.

It’s perfect for picture taking, TV appearances, date night and/or anytime you wish all that wrinkle puffy action would just disappear for a while.   Seriously, it’s kinda awesome.

And you’re going to seriously think that I’m kinda awesome by providing you with a link to try this out for yourself.  No purchase necessary and must live in the U.S. ~ all you have to do is follow the instructions on the giveaway below to receive your free sample.  ***  while supplies last.

You’re seriously welcome.
