Fashion Show To-Go

I love fashion as much as the next girl, so when I had the opportunity to attend a fashion show, I jumped at the opportunity. Last Friday at the Marin Country Club in Novato, CA, my mom and I saw the latest spring trends at the Curbside Couture fashion show. What is Curbside Couture? Essentially it is a fashion show to-go. Leah-Marie, founder and CEO of Curbside Couture, curates a mobile fashion show right in front of your business or home, featuring local designers. While this one was indoors in a banquet room, the show normally takes place on a truck bed, but still has the glitz and glam of a traditional fashion show.

Leah-Marie had everything planned out perfectly: an “L” shaped runway, drastic lighting, catering, swag bags, vendors showcasing their goods and a solid turnout. The show started at 7 p.m., but doors opened an hour before so people could shop and nosh on some food. Some of the vendors were Carolina Boutique (Novato and Mill Valley), In Her Shoes (San Rafael), Salt Point Sparkling Cocktails (Mill Valley), Ash + Ames and others.

The show itself was amazing. Half an hour of completely different looks (clothes from Carolina Boutique, shoes from In Her Shoes and jewelry from Ash + Ames) and good music. It was fun to see the new trends for spring, then being able to shop them afterwards. Here are a few snaps I took during the fashion show.

If you like the idea of having a fashion show come to you, reach out to Curbside Couture. Be sure to let me know which look is your favorite in the comments!

Home Decor

These next three weeks are sure to be hectic. My husband and I are currently packing up our apartment and moving into a bigger one a few streets over (at another complex). While I do love all the current art pieces we have (and one we bought on our honeymoon in Hawaii), since it’s a bigger space I need to accommodate and make it feel homey rather than empty.

Where do I go? Pinterest, of course! It has truly been my savior in figuring out how to organize in a stylish and creative way. The two main rooms I need to focus on is the bathroom and kitchen. Here are some of the ideas I will be implementing in my new apartment:

Bathroom:

Using a wine rack as a towel holder. Such a great idea!

Loving this tiered tray to store things like q-tips, lotions and small hand towels. My new bathroom counter will have the space for this.

Bedroom:

I have everything pretty much set for the bedroom already as we’re bringing over what we already have, but I am always looking for a better way to store my jewelry. I love this framed jewelry board. I love that this one has a little shelf/tray for rings.

Kitchen:

I’ve always wanted to put up cute signs and these are printable. Just head to the dollar store and find a nice frame to put these in!

Living Room:

Loving these shelves and how they’re decorated. Will be sure to do this in my new place.

Guaranteed over the next three weeks I’ll come up with more ideas. Once we are settled in I’ll be sure to take some photos and share them with you.

If you have any cool ideas, be sure to let me know in the comments – I’m always looking for more.
