I really loved going to this fashion show. It was my first ever exclusive fashion show it was super fun. I loved seeing all the new spring trends out on the runway. I also loved how it was an exclusive seating. It was random seating but I liked how you had to have tickets to get in. It made me feel like I was going to a private party.

They provided breakfast which was really yummy. They provided food from the local hotel near by which was mainly mini quiches. There was also fresh fruit, drinks and coffee. Also Cinnabon and TopPot Donuts provided cinnamon rolls and small donuts. They were super tasty!

They had these swag bags on the chairs. Inside there are a lot of mini gifts and coupons and offers from the stores in the Bellevue Collection. One of them was a free makeover at Sephora. It was super fun getting my makeup done.

My mom and I spent most of the day shopping around using the coupons I got and visited stores that I love to shop at. We also got our nails done at (I don’t know what the name of the place is) It was super nice to relax a little after the long day of shopping.

I shopped at American Eagle and bought a pair of Dark Wash Denim Shorts, $39.95

I also went to Forever21 and got a bunch of new accessories.

I would definitely want to go to this event again. It was totally worth the time and money. This would be great event to go to if you are really into what the trend is for the season. It gives you a good perspective on what is coming up in the stores at the Bellevue Collection.

Back to School Tips and Tricks

Here are some useful tips and tricks for back to school.

What I like to wear is a dress on the first day of school. I like to wear a dress that is not to much to worry about but something easy but still very cute because you will be walking around a lot.

One trick I do on the first week of school is I plan out what I’m going to wear for the whole week. That makes it so much easier in the mornings. And to make it easier when planning out for the week, I always check the weather. I check the weather because I can know if it will be hot or that morning so that I know how many layers to wear or if I need to wear jeans instead of a skirt.

The second tip for school is to be prepared. I like to get all my stuff ready in the morning so that means my outfit, backpack and even lunch. And also be prepared with things in your backpack. I always keep a pair of pants and a shirt in my backpack just in case I need it.

For school, you don’t always need to have the newest and trendiest clothing. Everybody has a different view on fashion. Wear clothes that make you feel confident and comfortable. You don’t want to wear a skirt if you’re on of those people who just don’t wear skirt, just because everyone else is. Wear something that’s eye popping. Something fresh and new. I always wear my new clothes n the first couple weeks.

I hope these tips were helpful and you will be able to use this for your back to school routine.

Neons!

Neon clothing, or as I like to call it, highlighter color clothing, is super fun! I love neon colors because it’s so bright and everyone will notice you. Plus, it is the perfect thing to wear during the summer. There are also a lot of different styles you can wear from shirts to shorts to dresses and accessories. What’s really perfect is to wear one neon color with another. My personal opinion is that if you wear, let’s say, a neon yellow shirt with yellow pants, I think it is a little overpowering or tacky. But it would be cute if you wore a neon pink shirt with neon green shorts and a neon pink thin belt.
Here are some of my personal favorite neon clothing:

 

Mossimo Supply Co. Juniors Denim Short

Neon Animal Bodycon Dress

Black Light Optional Neon Yellow Fuchsia Dress

Dolce T-Strap Sandal

Printed Crochet Fringe 2fer Top

Plaid and Stripes; Is This a Crime?

I have always heard that plaid and stripes don’t go together. Is it a bad thing? No, of course it isn’t, but I wouldn’t say it’s the best thing to wear. I once wore stripes and plaid without even noticing. I just thought it looked good together. But now when I tried on that exact outfit a year later, I thought it didn’t look so bad. I think the thing for mastering plaids and stripes is matching colors pretty well. For example, wearing a light blue and peach plaid shirt with a white and peach striped cardigan doesn’t look that bad. What would you do? Would you wear stripes and plaid?

Here are some cute styles of plaid and stripes:
