Kaleidoscope: Urbanity

Kaleidoscope Houston kicked off its inaugural three-night event not long ago. The first and second nights were held at a sprawling mansion in the Northside district of Houston. The event boasted music, art and fashion.

Night one was aptly named “Urbanity” and featured ‘urban-themed’ art and fashion, with sounds by DJ Nando 1. Proceeds from the first night benefitted Team GINI. That evening’s host was Omar Castillo.

Designers on deck for night one of Kaleidoscope were Swinn, Kooth Brand and a collection by a group of Art Institute students. There was also local entertainment in between the fashion sets, which included: The Mad Men Crew– a Hip Hop group that debuted a Houston-themed anthem that night, Femme Fatale Cru, Tobe Nwigwe- one of Team GINI’s founders, Brenden Winkfield- tap dancer extraordinaire, and Raj the Rapper– Hip Hop and R&B musician.

Swinn is an alternative athletic-wear brand from Austin and specializes in cheeky sports bras and other active wear that are made in the U.S.A. Texas Bgirl group- Femme Fatale Cru joined the models during the Swinn runway. Each girl busted out in their own hip-hop number at the end of the runway, creating an upbeat mood for the audience. Kooth Brand is based (and manufactured) in Houston. CEO and designer (and fellow FIDM alum) Shayne Salinas has spend a lot of time around farms, ranches and industrial plants and believes in timeless American-made workwear for the working class man. He draws most of his inspiration from the aesthetic of 1930s-60s blue-collar workers’ garments and used modern fabrics that mirrored the fabrics from the 30s. After seeing the brand in person and listening to Salinas talk about his mission statement, I’m hoping that he will make a womens division soon. But for now, I can totally see myself carrying the canvas and leather tool bag. The last designer showcase of the evening was collection created by an amazing group of students from the Art Institute of Houston: Wilbert, Keosha, and Kim. The trio created a collection comprised of denim with mesh accents, which truly had that urban edge.

Stay tuned for Kaleidoscope: Jet Set….

I was recently introduced to LulaRoe when I received a pair of leggings and a dress that I had won in a giveaway.

LulaRoe was launched about three years ago by DeAnne and Mark Stidham. The name “LulaRoe” was inspired by DeAnne’s granddaughers- Lucy, Lola and Monroe. The brand started out by only making 1,000 units of any print; but now that they are growing, the number has risen to 2,500, thus making the designs more unique. For more information and to look into becoming a consultant, check out LulaRoe.com or join a Consultant VIP Facebook Group, where you can participate in online pop-up shops.

I took my LulaRoe dress out for a morning at Green Street. Since it was somewhat chilly, I added my vintage jacket and paired them with my vintage Lauren Ralph Lauren concha belt. My vintage booties added for a laid-back boho vibe.

I’ve been wanting to spotlight my “Los Angeles Postcard Print” vintage blouse I bought from the Instagram vintage shop- Revival Vintage Co, for awhile now and was glad when I was finally able to break it out and wear it for this post in collaboration with a few other Houston fashion bloggers. Since it was still rather chilly, I paired the top with my easy floral print pants to complement the look. Now, since it was all about print mixing, I did try to piece together several looks the night before, but this final one just “felt right.” I added my favorite green statement necklace from Stella & Dot (no longer available) and a bright vintage handbag I recently thrifted as added color bonuses.

This is my first style post collaboration with other bloggers. I was thrilled when I was asked to share my style point-of-view with five other lovely ladies, all with their own unique style personalities. The ladies with whom I collaborated with are:
