Brazos Valley Fashion Week

12841387_1699069607047912_2236634802187101561_o

G and I have lived in CS for over a year now. We have loved the hospitality, traditions and most of all, the people. I must admit that when I heard we were being transferred here I was nervous. I have a four year fashion degree and nine years of industry experience – what in the world would I do there? Luckily, I met Charli, a boutique owner who has had her store for almost 42 years! She brought me on to help with the daily store operations as well as incorporate my personal shopping and styling services into the stores customer service.

Charli and I were asked to participate in Brazos Valley Fashion Week by the fabulous Christopher Michael, a local salon owner. BVFW would put on runway shows for three nights and feature local boutiques as well as designers from Project Runway and Project Runway All-Stars. (Kate Pankoke, anyone!? Love me some redheaded fashion friends!) The shows would not only serve as a treat for all local fashion lovers but also raise money for the Fun For All Playground being built for children with special needs.

We styled looks for twelve amazing models and showed our looks on Saturday, the VIP night. My incredible family came to support the cause, including my sweet friend Rosy. Shop some of our looks below.

Galentines

060_JBP_Galentines_2016My friend Rosy invited me to a local Galentines event hosted by Jen Brazeal Photography. We met up with local ladies for a night of brush calligraphy (taught by the owner of The August Reign Etsy shop) and floral crown lessons. Although she and I both failed miserably at mastering both crafts, we still had a good time laughing, drinking wine and getting dressed up. Shop our Galentine’s looks below!
