Cocktail frilly looks by Fabiola Arias

Hope you are enjoying your weekend. Thank you for your amazing comments in response to yesterday's post about my five year wedding anniversary. When I started this blog, I was shy about posting pictures of myself but the longer I've been blogging, the more I realize how personal this space has become.

While the Mr. and I travel through Thailand for the next two weeks, I have some amazing guest bloggers lined up starting Monday. I'm blessed to know these amazing ladies and their guest posts are crazy good. While my visits to your blogs may be light while I am on vacation (the Mr. and I will be fighting over his tiny travel laptop), please watch this space for hot, fresh guest posts! Tomorrow, I will be posting some amazing reports from LA Fashion Week penned by two stylish writers... Have a fabulous weekend and enjoy these weekend links!


Speaking of LA Fashion Week, our friends at Blackburn and Sweetzer are killing it with their insider scoop. Head there now and live vicariously through their front row coverage.

Just in time for Halloween costume ideas, Wicked Halo posts an artist's renderings of Frankenstein and family as Old Master paintings.

The Coveted says you don't have to be a plus sized woman to be "real."

Haute Shopper is back in Paris with a post laden with food and shopping pictures from a recent trip to Tunisia. Amazing report.

Enter to win a gorgeous wire lace bouquet pendant from gem artist and blogger flaurena.


If you are in LA, you are cordially invited to preview "By Appointment," the open studio concept of Popomomo and LA Vintage Exchange with champagne and treats for buyers and press this Sunday 10/18 (10 am - 4 pm). Every Wednesday after that from 1 - 7 pm, the studio will be open to shoppers. Sounds like a neat concept! 4006 N. Figueroa, Los Angeles. RSVP: byappointment4006@gmail.com.

Why do amazing events pop up just as I'm about to leave town on vacation??

This weekend in New York, David Yurman is hosting a shopping event to support The Breast Cancer Research Foundation. Save an additional 20% off already reduced prices on jewelry and accessories. Saturday 10/17 (10 am - 7 pm) and Sunday 10/18 (11 am - 5 pm). The Altman Building, 135 West 18th Street.

Debut is hosting two amazing shopping events this coming week. On Tuesday 10/20, emerging designer Fabiola Arias (whose cocktail looks are featured above) will be hosting a trunkshow with cocktails from 5 - 7 pm. On Wednesday 10/21, Coup de Coeur will be hosting a fall shopping event (invitation above) for womenswear designer Karolina Zmarlak and jewelry designer Holly Fulton, with an appearance and clinic from 1- 6 pm and cocktail reception from 6 -8 pm. 298 Mulberry Street.

Rock-N-Shop pop-up shop will be presenting a "hybrid shopping and rock-n-roll experience" next weekend with live performances by acts such as A Fragile Tomorrow, Audio Fiction and Paper Doll. Participating brands include 25Park, By Malene Birger, Elizabeth & James, Gryphon, Kain, Lewis Cho, Pink Tartan and Siwy Denim.

The Arts of Fashion Foundation will be hosting its eighth annual Symposium at Drexel University in Philadelphia, a five day global event bringing together young designers, professionals, academics, critics and retailers starting Saturday 10/24. The Symposium will kick off with four day master classes taught by noted designers. Imagine working on textiles with former designers from the Maison Martin Margiela or studying womenswear with Christian Wijnants and Tom Van Dorpe... The event will also feature panels on fashion copyright issues and fashion media and an exciting international fashion student competition, with 60 students vying for nine scholarship and internship opportunities. Check out the website for further details and the full schedule.
