Fashionable events galore.

Hi Lovelies!  So this will be different from my usual posts, just wanted to share with you two fashion events I had the pleasure of attending this week!  Enjoy all the photos along with my ramblings <3.
3/01/11 - Fashion Feud 2011 Round Three @ Rickshaw Stop, SF
Enjoyed attending the Fashion Feud Round Three, a kind of live project runway event.  Loved attending it with the lovely fellow fashion blogger, Theresa Rose of
They had a few vendors there as well, with beautiful clothes, lots of sunglasses, and even free makeovers!
Loved how the boyfriend came along with me, made him wear his Ralph Lauren shirt, so we were both wearing Ralph Lauren that night <3.
Theresa Rose also brought her fiance, they're so cute :), and my boyfriend wasn't the only guy there haha.
The two designers:  Sally Marie Hahn and Lori Dawn created gorgeous and fierce outfits with Mood Fabrics (an orange/white polka dot fabric along with a black opaque fabric).  I loved the one with the hood! -- created by Sally Marie, and was the winning outfit of the night!
An exciting thing happened too!  Jeff, my bf, won me a $300 gift certificate to a high-end salon in SF, called Edo Salon!  He had to play a Scion driving game and be in 1st place, turned out he was in 2nd and 4th too lol.
Theresa Rose was so pretty in her outfit, I loved how she layered her skirt with a cardi and scarf along with the cutest oxford heels :).
Brown Ralph Lauren blouse, Black thrifted sheer pleated maxi skirt, Brown high heel clogs, Navy thrifted belt.
Finally got to wear out my newest thrift find!  A pleated sheer maxi skirt, I decided to cut the black skirt underneath to make it short -- was so happy with the result! :)  They also stuck a press sticker on me, was walking around with a huge camera lol.
3/03/11 - Neiman Marcus Fashion Rules Party @ Union Square, SF
Loved going out to the city with my stylish girlfriends, Kaylie and Mia, both also from UCB.  They were super excited to go to the event, and they looked so lovely too!  Thanks girlies for coming with me :).
We only attended the Spring Trends Fashion Show they had, but there were an array of other events happening in the department store.  These were a few detail shots of the outfits I looved.  On the left, there was a white/black coat with ruffle details.  In the middle, a beyond gorgeous red/pink gown, the fabric was amazing.  On the right, a cool and chic outfit with a motorcycle jacket and a cute ruffle dress underneath.
The girl we asked to take our picture, went the extra mile and knelt down like a professional photographer to take our pic from bottom-up.  Loved how she was so nice enough to do that!! :)
Purple Urban Outfitters chiffon cardi, Black thrifted hat, Black H&M floral denim skirt, Tan suede Forever 21 wedges.
(I'll ask my chic girlfriends where their lovely pieces were from and will place it here.) :)

Hope you girls liked the photos from the two events I attended just this past week!  I definitely recommend to attend any fashion event that is in your city.  One phrase important here: GOOGLE IT :p.  Or go by word of mouth, you're bound to find one fashion event in your area.  
I'm in the process of also owing you lovelies an outfit post, coming tomorrow!  Thank you soo much again for all your support and love on my blog, I seriously am always in day can we all please meet in person? :)
I'll be sharing some exciting news about my blog tomorrow as well!!  Hope your weeks went well! And hope you all have an aamazing weekend, TGIF BEAUTIFULS! <3

<3, Kathleen.

Girl! You look so cute in both of those outfits! Looks like both events were fun :) I ALMOST went to Fashion Feud, but decided against it once the rain hit. Next time, we are going to meet up at one of these bay area events!! I think the sun is coming out soon, so we can finally have that picnic. Mochi balls will definitely be on the menu. Have a wonderful weekend, love!

You look great as usual, Kathleen!
And it must have been so exciting
attending those events!
And answering your inquiry from before, I would love to meet up with you sometime! I haven't had a blogger meet up yet and seeing all these fellow bloggers meeting up makes me wanna meet up with a fellow blogger as well! hahah :P
I am usually busy during the week with school and such but Sundays would be my free days since those are generally my homework days. haha

Sherrie Cola said...

Lovely pictures and I absolutely love your hair..don't dye it or anything! Maybe just have a really good treatment for it or something so it stays super healthy looking and if you can perhaps buy some really good shampoo and conditioner with the rest?
