LOOK OF THE DAY 10.17.2013
Friday, October 18, 2013
This look revolved around a busy day of activities. Like most Thursday's, I needed a vibe that would translate well in several different types of environments: work, a networking event and dinner. Fortunately, this BCBG top from Nordstrom Rack and Steve Madden wedges did the trick.
Posting all these looks has actually revealed to me that I have had a huge fashion crush on BCBG for the longest time lol --like prior to even really knowing the brand and all its fashionable goodness. There's just just something about their silhouettes and classic attention to detail and designer that win me over time and time again.
Interestingly, I had the pleasure of interviewing BCBG's Chief Creative Officer Lubov Azria at Fashion Houston last year. Not only is her story incredibly touching, I told her about my nonprofit Mia's Closet when we finished the interview, and she invited me to a private event at Nordstrom the following day! --I'm still excited if you can't tell haha What I love is that it is a firsthand priority for her to not only be a leader in her organization, but accessible to her team as well. To say the least, she has set such a great example, and I look forward to following suit given the platform. To this day I'm still super smitten --making my ongoing love affair with their brand all the more appealing.
