Hello fashion friends!  Got plans this Thursday?  Come join me at Clothes Minded AZ on October 24, 2013, (5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.) to talk fashion, styling, and how to make your pieces work.  Bring an item from your wardrobe that always leaves you with a big question mark when you go to wear it.  You know, the piece that just sits in your closet looking pretty?

I will be on hand to answer all your fashion styling questions and help you find your own inner stylist.  So bring your fashion a-game for a wonderful evening.  Lets banish the stress of getting dressed and like Tim Gunn says, “Make it Work!”

Clothes Minded AZ Blogger Event & Styling Challenge


On Friday I was able to attend an awesome blogger event hosted by Clothes Minded AZ.  I found out about the festivities last minute and boy am I glad I was able to make it.  The store kicked off its grand opening earlier this year and showcases an array of clothing and accessories to include items from local designers.

Kim, owner of Clothes Minded AZ, opened the event with a sweet introduction about her store.  She was followed by Ashley of The Shine Project who talked about blogging and her line Threads.  Christian from Phenomz and Maggie from Angie both followed with product reviews.

After some refreshments and mingling an impromptu styling challenge was proposed to the bloggers with Phoenix Fashion Week models on hand to assist.  I styled my first look on the lovely Ariah.   The printed skirt caught my eye, and I added a sleeveless lace tank for texture, and a long sleeved chambray shirt knotted at her waist for layering.  I accessorized her look with a statement necklace, beaded earrings, wrap around bracelet, love necklace (I modified it into a bracelet), and a menswear inspired watch.  You can shop all pieces at Clothes Minded AZ with the exception of shoes (models), and Michael Kors watch (stylists own).

My second look was a team effort.  The beautiful Ashley with help from Ariah spotted the white button-detail shorts on a rack and paired them with the black bandeau. This was a perfect base to build upon.  A gold jacket, statement rings, a swirled smooth stone necklace, and a Füchsin sturgis black studded garter purse was added to complete her glam-tough girl look.  You can shop all pieces at Clothes Minded AZ with the exception of shoes (models).  All orders for Angie products (gold jacket) can be special ordered by Kim.

Here’s the fun part!  You can vote on Ariah and Ashley’s looks for the blogger styling challenge by going to Clothes Minded AZ’s Facebook page.  Just click on your favorite look and like it to vote.  Voting ends August 28th at midnight. Please also support the girls in their Phoenix Fashion Week No7 Model of the Year Contest.
