Fashion Shows

Contemporary Spring Trunk Show @Saks

Yes! I love Saks and I just can’t help it that they throw amazing events that I love going to and darned if they didn’t throw another one recently;  a contemporary Spring trunk show that involved clothing and – joy of joys – shoes!  If you know me you know how I am about shoes and they had some new ones there that have not been to the Columbus Saks before.  Brands like Ash, Alice & Olivia, Joie  and more.  There were the wonderful guys serving the chardonnay along with the nummy appetizers but my focus was strictly on the shoes and clothing.

Ok, sure I took a detour at some of the Louboutin shoes (a girl can dream can’t she?) but there were some gorgeous shoes from the trunk show that had me ready to bust out the plastic and go for it.  I never thought I’d be one for wedge sneakers but the Ash ones they had there might just change my mind;  casual but with style.  It was also great to see that the shoes came in heel heights from flats and flat sandals to oh my high!   The Spring trend of brighter colors (Spring will you please get here – stat!) was very much on display with the shoes and clothing.  I was happy to see that peplums and cropped jackets are still with us along with leather for warmer weather.

The event was hosted by local news person, Yolanda Harris, who did a bang up job working the crowd and Saks gave away gift cards in a raffle.  Five happy winners disappeared later into the beauty department which was hopping with their beauty week event.  It was a fun and busy day but let’s look at those shoes and fashions shall we?

Fashion’s Night Out @Saks – Part 2

This time we are going to take a look at the Men’s and Women’s Contemporary collections from Fashion’s Night Out at Saks in Columbus, Ohio.  The jewel toned colors trend is so so pretty and my fave!  Now turn up the music Mr. DJ and let’s get this show started!

Fashion’s Night Out @Saks – Part 1

Fashion’s Night Out is that special night when the stars, models, fashionistas, designers, and bloggers all across the country come out for fun and fashion.  I hope you were able to partake in this event wherever you are because yours truly had a great time attending hers at Saks at the Polaris Mall in Columbus, Ohio.  FNO, in its fourth year, is like a coming out party for falls fashion trends.  I love parties and Saks here definitely knows how to throw a bash, but let me back it up for a moment.   FNO is not just about what will be hot for the new season it is also about contributing to worthy causes.  In the case of this Saks, a portion of the nights proceeds went to the Ovarian Cancer Alliance of Ohio (OCAO).

Saks really put out the food and entertainment for the night.  There were two DJ’s playing music  along with the charming young men from Brio Tuscan Grille passing out glasses of wine that complimented the nibbles being served throughout the store by local restaurants California Pizza Kitchen, Cantina Laredo, Eddie Merlot’s, Brio and Hilton Polaris.  Another bit of entertainment was the living statue guy of Joy Unspeakable.  I must say the man is very talented and truly fascinated (and scared) some of the shoppers that were in attendance.  He was good!

        You just never knew where he would appear and what he would be doing.

The night began with the hostess,  local news person and former Miss Ohio, Monica Day, who was wearing a Saks ensemble from designer Aidan Mattox.  She thanked everyone for attending; reminding all that a portion of the nights proceeds would be going to the OCAO.  Chris Gillespie, the OCAO President & CEO was introduced then and gave a brief talk about their organization.  As with other charaties who have a color to represent their mission, the OCAO’s color was teal which was shown on their bracelets and by some of the clothing worn by the models.

The fall season must haves included the trends of mixed mediums, embellishments, jewel tones, the color burgundy/bordeaux, and leather.  I’m really loving the leather trend.  Layering was also shown with scarves and furs along with the menswear for women look; elegance was definitely on parade.

All in all it was a great night and Saks, you held a fantastic Fashion’s Night Out.  Now let’s look at the fashions shall we?

Fashion’s Night Out – Preview

Last night was so much fun @Saks in Columbus, Ohio.  Chardonnay, so much good food, music, fashion (and that included some of the crowd), dancing, and the cutest baby English Bulldog ever!  Yours truly was rocking a semi-smoky eye and her FNO tshirt that was the envy of the crowd because I was the only one with the long sleeved grey one.  Score!

Cya later with more.

           Awesome fashion.

Guess who in her FNO official tshirt and Tory Burch sparkly flats 🙂
