Small Boutique Fashion Week 2017

I was so lucky to get to attend Small Boutique Fashion week 2017!!
It was my first time this year going to a NYC Fashion show during Fashion week.
I had a front row seat at probably the most creative,
 and cutting edge of the small designer Fashion shows.
All of the designers at this show are underground,new,and emerging.
I couldn't believe the different tastes and styles I saw!
It was like going to an Art show! I loved every minute of it.
There were 3 shows throughout the day. 
One in the morning, Afternoon, and evening.
I ended up going to the afternoon and evening shows.
SBFW Was held at Studio 450 on West 31st Street.
It was a gorgeous wide open Penthouse, perfect for the event!!
There were designers of street style,boho looks, layered looks, and evening wear!
I'm happy I went and will be attending the next season of SBFW.
Its an inspiration for new designers to get their name out there,
and bring their underground style to the above.

Shimmer Effect

I love to be covered in sparkles and shimmer for photo shoots! 
I think the best way to achieve that affect is with jewelry!! I'll be honest.. 
I don't wear tons of bracelets,necklaces and rings every single day.
Accessorizing can be a challenge! 
It takes time to pick the right pieces to style a look. 
I start with the hue and color of the dress or top I'm wearing,
and then color coordinate my accessories around that. 
This is an almost white light pink silk tunic top.
 The moment I saw it, I knew it'd be perfect to throw on over a bikini for the beach. 
I knew it needed a few sparkly pieces for it to stand out.

I chose silver rhinestone pieces and layered necklaces to match the jeweled bikini I'm wearing.
I gathered the jewelry pieces together the night before the actual shoot.
As much as I wish I could roll out of bed in the morning and just know what to style I can't! 
One of these days I need to show you my collection of accessories.
Its still growing and needs organizing!! 
I feel like one of the most important factors in putting looks together is organization!
Once my accessories are organized I'll give you a small tour of my humble little accessory collection.
I'm happy I can give you a few tips on how I style my looks.
As with anything worth while it takes time and patience.
