Women of Couture Fashion Show


When I lived in San Antonio I used to dream about an event like this. I would ask myself, "Why aren't there any fabulous fashion shows in this city?". That is why it makes me all warm and fuzzy inside to see that not only is there going to be a very fabulous fashion show in San Antonio, but it's also for a great cause! The Women of Couture Fashion show is going to be at the Witte Museum next Friday evening and they will be raising funds for Charity Water, a non-profit organization that builds wells of clean drinking water in developing nations. More information about the charity here: http://www.charitywater.org/

The show promises to be fierce! There is a "Doll Asylum" theme, which is very fitting for the upcoming Halloween festivities. Sushi Zushi has also agreed to cater the event! Yummmmmz. I regretfully will not be able to attend since I live on a deserted island but I'm glad that my hometown is finally becoming more fashion-forward. I urge all of my San Antonians to attend the fashion show for a night of beautiful couture, a great cause and delicious sushi!

Reception starts at 8:00 PM, show starts at 9:15 PM. Witte Museum is at 3801 Broadway, San Antonio, TX 78209. Tickets and additional information here: http://womenofcouture.com/

On the Hunt for a Fur Vest


I've been on the fence when it comes to wearing fur all my life. And my apprehension doesn't come from the animal rights issues (which I acknowledge are important to consider but that's not what my blog is about) but comes more from the fact that I've never really known how to wear fur. Living in Texas, the opportunity to wear it rarely arises and if I owned a fur coat, I'm fairly certain it would sit in my closet, sad and under-appreciated. I recently came to an epiphany, I could wear a fur vest in the fall/winter and not feel awkward about it! After seeing a beautiful Fendi silver fox fur vest in the November Vogue, I've been looking for the perfect fur vest. I see myself wearing the vest over a long, solid fitted tee and jeans or maybe over a dress with some knee high-boots. Topshop has some affordable faux fur vests that I'm considering to buy but let's go into my fantasy world of designer fashion and take a look at vests I can't afford.
