Pink is more than a pretty color this month.  October is Breast Cancer Awareness month and so many companies have gotten on board to donate a portion of proceeds from specially curated collections. Most of these items are only available for the month of October so if something catches your fancy I wouldn't hesitate.  It's a win win.  Something for you and a donation for cancer research. Besides.... it is pink after all and who doesn't love pink?   I rounded up a collection of things that I fancy including that fabulous hot Pink Celine necklace you have already seen me wearing and most likely will share it again in tomorrows outfit! Love it!!!  You also know if you have been around here a while how much I love The Ropes Maine bracelets.  Shana has created an exclusively available and  limited edition bracelet with the cutest rose gold lobster charm with a pink tourmaline betweens its claws with 100% of the proceeds going to research.  I am one of the lucky ones that has cancer survivors in my family.

Middle of the Road

A quick way to take a bland outfit and spice it up is add a pop of color. We all at one time or another have thrown together an outfit with black and gray. Chances are you probably threw on a pair of black shoes too.  Next time try a bright shoe for fun.  Maybe a fun colbalt, or this mustard heel.  It will take an ordinary day and make it something extraordinary if you allow it! Geez, now I sound like a narrator!!  I recently had a neighbor tell me she would never try the things I put together.  I reminded her that her greatest accessory is confidence!  Hey, it's like I always say...... rock it with confidence and try not to get ran over when standing in the middle of the street!

Hot Pink Statement

If there is one thing you can count on in Kansas it's the wind, and inevitably its blowing against you.  Isn't that how it goes?  I have been dying to share my new Celine hot pink necklace with you.  I posted a peek at it earlier this week on instagram and here is the full look.  Gorgeous!  Now this is what I would call a statement necklace! It is limited edition so you better grab one this month or you will be sorry.   If it's possible to find a way to wear pink in the fall... you know I am going to try it!  Speaking of pink, this is the month for it.  I will be sharing my #Pinktober roundup with you guys next week so be on the lookout for it! So many good companies giving back for a great cause.  I hope you will take advantage of these deals and not only buy yourself a treat but help find a cure for breast cancer. (This necklace is one of the specials too)

KC Fashion Week Recap

This past weekend, myself along with bloggers and fashion aficionados packed into the Kansas City Union Station to see the upcoming Spring/Summer 2016 collections from local and regional designers. Raising awareness for melanoma; KCFW partnered with Fair & Fashionable and requested the attendees wear black on Thursday to show support for the awareness of melanoma. Over 200,000  people are diagnosed with skin cancer every year according to the Mayo Clinic.  The idea behind the movement is to inspire people to change their belief; simply put, that natural skin tone is in style and healthier than suntanned. 

With each designer taking the runway, I found myself saying this was my favorite look.... until the next designer took the runway!  So here are a few of my top picks from the event.  To learn more about Kansas City Fashion Week, visit their website!

 Michael Drummond

Paulie Gibson

Gorgeous designs for sure.  What is your favorite look from the event?  I can't wait for spring to attend the next show!

Sometimes it's not the outfit that makes the picture; it's the picture that makes the outfit! I am excited for jacket weather.  Who else is with me on that?

It's all in the Props

I want to start this post by explaining a piece of a blogger's life.  When taking outfits pics you want a setting that is cohesive to what you are wearing.  At least I do!  For example:  A pair of stilettos in grass or a field really doesn't give a genuine impression to you really are wearing that outfit. Every time I have stepped off the street or curb onto the grass in even a smaller heel I stop and think about "does this even look natural?"   So finding a location to shoot can some times be an adventure.  That is what brings me to these pictures.  While running errands and shooting pictures one afternoon Erin and myself stumbled upon this studio.  Ummm cool studio I might add!  It was a prop girls dream come true! I instantly knew the pinball machine needed to be my prop.  The lighting flooding in and the shadows playing across the floor was the best. 
Speaking of floors..... these slippers!!  Jem Skull Slippers to be exact.   You may have remembered I have posted about them here.  Loving them from the minute I saw them I knew I wanted a pair.  Now I have a limit to what I will spend on shoes and these exceeded such limit.  I have patiently and oh so quietly followed Mara and Mine just hoping and waiting for the chance to own a pair.  The heavens opened up and a fall sale occurred. I wasted no time making a pair mine!  I have received a few comments from friends as to what the exact draw to these shoes would be and I really don't have one answer.  I have always followed the beat to my own drum and don't necessarily follow trends to the tee.  Different, unique, and well.... just me!  After all that's what you are here to see isn't it?  Style from my perspective.

Super star.... why yes you are!
