Scout Style: Windowpane

Posted on September 18th, by Melanie

This week I helped host a holiday trend presentation with Park Place for some of KC’s style setters. It was 90 degrees, and on a rooftop…I didn’t want to be too “fall” or too “spring”. I think this outfit ended up being the perfect choice for a rooftop party in September.

Head to toe print can be intimidating! I wasn’t 100% sure about this outfit at first, but I love the simplicity of black and white, and a windowpane plaid is always classic. I added my big, blue Alexander Wang duffel to break up the print and I kept my jewelry simple with simple studs and some gold bracelets.

Florals and The Fashion Show

Posted on July 30th, by Melanie

I am still recovering from my crazy weekend. Fashion shows are so much fun but a lot of work! There is a lot of effort put into a very short amount of time on the runway, but it is well worth it. I had a BLAST coordinating the show for Park Place and everything went off without a hitch! Outside it being 100 degrees in the shade, we had a wonderful crowd and the  models did amazing!

I ended up getting the floral jumpsuit I blogged about a while back! It was a steal to begin with and then another 20% off at Alysa Rene Boutique during the Paint the Night event. It was worth every penny! It is by an obscure brand; I looked for it online and couldn’t find it! So sorry, I wish I could share the resource with you!

Who wore it best? And a Henry & Belle giveaway!

Posted on October 9th, by Melanie

It’s not a secret that I love my Henry & Belle denim. They are the most comfy jeans I have ever worn. So, when they asked the team at Style Spies if we would do a style-off AND giveaway two pairs of jeans to our readers how could we not oblige?!

and really…who doesn’t love a great game of  “Who wore it best”?

To enter, visit the Style Spies blog and vote on which one of us you think styled our denim the best. Two winners will be picked; one will receive the orchid pair and one will receive the spruce with zippers on the sides. I love them both, it’s hard to choose a favorite!

These two looks are very “me”. I LOVE  a good blouse and I especially love when I can find them at a great price. These were both budget finds, I think both were under $25!… Continue Reading
