Something a Little Different...

Not to toot my own horn...but the title of this post totally applies to the outfit I wore the other day, and MY NEW BLOG DESIGN! (I'm so clever) I love it, it's much more clean and grown up than my old blog, and the name isn't such a mouthful. (Daughter of a Son of a Sailor = 7 words!)

So last Thursday I got to not only go to Tootsies Fall Fashion Preview, but be IN the fashion show! It was so cool/nerve-wracking because I just knew I was going to trip and fall or stumble my words or something. Luckily it all went well (thank you, four years of architecture presentations). 


Top \\ Pants (Similar) \\ Leopard Clutch (Similar) \\ Necklace \\ Booties (Old)


I definitely didn't gravitate toward my usual style, I thought I'd try something completely crazy...and I'm not sure where I would ever wear this outfit...but I love it! It was so fun getting to run around the store and to find pieces to complete the look, and add a few of my own. 

Here's what you aught to know about fall 2014 trends:

- Embellishments are still super in, think sparkles/sequins, leather accents, and fringe

- Simple silhouettes such as shift and sheath dresses are still making a punch, especially with fun accents

- Fur is, once again, big this year, so stock up on your fur coats, or use it as an accent

Thank you so much Tootsies and The Southwest Blogger Society for the opportunity to participate in this fun event!

What's the fall trend you can wait to try out?
