"Pay It Forward Fashion Exchange" with Glam Authority

The Rice Village branch of Kendra Scott played co-host to the “Pay It Forward Fashion Exchange” that took place a couple weeks ago. The event was spearheaded by Kesha Scott- founder of Glam Authority, Houston’s go-to destination for getting your closet cleaned and organized, while also making it fun and profitable for you.

The event’s attendees were asked to provide designer clothing items to donate and exchange. All donations went to support The Women’s Home, a non-profit organization. They also own and operate The Cottage Shop- a boutique-y thrift store here in the city. The event also featured light bites and bubbly. While waiting for the exchange to begin, guests mingled and had the chance to shop the latest Kendra Scott products and check out the famous “Color Bar.” Giveaways from sponsors like Kendra Scott, Pynk Luxe, Chloe Dao and blogger/author Megan Silianoff were also handed out to a lucky few.

The exchange was divided into groups based on the color of the wrist band received at check-in. We had three minutes to grab items of our choice (but based on the number of items we brought to exchange). I ended up with a cute Nipon Boutique dress and jacket set, who’s bold pink hue stood out to me from across the room. It was fun seeing what everyone ended up with. Megan grabbed the vintage St. John top that I brought and I’m excited to see how she styles it. As we left, we were handed a swag bag, which featured a $25 gift card to Langford Market (thank you!) and other small treats.

Loads of thanks to Kesha Scott, The Women’s Home, the Kendra Scott Rice Village team, the sponsors and volunteers.

Arizona Blogger Conference 2013- Hotel Palomar- Phoenix

Sometimes, you just have to love how things just “work out.” Well, in this case, I just happened to be scheduled to stay the weekend with friends in Phoenix during the time that the second annual Arizona Blogger Conference was to be held. The Arizona Blogger Conference is an annual event that is hosted by the Phoenix Style Collective. This year, it was held at the trendy Hotel Palomar at CityScape. The attendance for the event seemed to have doubled since last year. There was a amazing food spread provided by the Palomar, mingling with other bloggers, raffles and a pop-up marketplace. Booths that participated in the marketplace were: Kendra Scott, Superstition Vintage, Tucson Fashion Week, Madewell, Mr.Fun Booth and Windows Surface. After some fun at the reception, everyone gathered in the ‘Dreamcatcher’ ballroom for the panels, held by: Danielle of Sometimes Sweet, Jessie of Style and Pepper, Sara of Frances Vintage, Sarah of Emma Magazine and Summer of The Girls with Glasses. Each girl gave their own perspective of being in the ‘blogging industry’ and gave out helpful advice for attendees who were new to blogging. Jessie, if you are reading this- those pink pants were gorgeous and please bring Pepperologie to Houston! I was so pleased to have learned about Frances Vintage’s blog and Emma Magazine as they are truly inspiring for DIY projects and general shenanigans. It was lovely meeting you Danielle, you are one stylish mama and loved your speech on “Finding your Voice.” Miss Sara- well done on the “I am a Girl” video. Especially the wardrobe! The event ended when one of the lovely Phoenix Style Collective members- Chelsea‘s boyfriend got on one knee and proposed to her. It was adorable and I wish them all the best. After that, everyone was adjourned to Lustre Bar for an afterparty.

Huge thanks to Phoenix Style Collective for having me. It is always a pleasure seeing you guys. Amy– thank you for attending the event with me! To the panelists, lovely meeting you all! The Hotel Palomar- beautiful venue and I hope to stay with you next time I’m in Phoenix!
