LA Fashion Week Kickoff Party!


Our handsome bartender

On Tuesday night we kicked off LA Fashion Council’s Fashion Week with a little cocktail party at stylehaus.  Champagne was served along with delish hors d’oeuvres, and LA’s most stylish citizens were dressed to the nines to celebrate the beginning of Fashion Week at The Grove.



Stylists Marina and Janelle prepping for the party!

stylehaus showcased pieces from designers that will be showing during LA Fashion Week, including Katherine Kidd, ISM Mode, and Bohemian Society.  We’ll show you the goods later this week with some personal style posts from our stylists, so be sure to check back!



Bethany and Constance chatting it up

The best part of the night was chatting with some of LA’s foremost bloggers, authors, and style authorities about the imminent LA Fashion Week shows and their thoughts on the latest trends.  Constance Dunn, author of Practical Glamour, talked to us about fashion as a way of presenting yourself to the world- we loved her take on personal style as your “business card”!



Blogger TLVBirdie came all the way from Tel Aviv to attend LA Fashion Week, and we were so glad to discover her & her blog, which is full of artsy shots of her signature blue hair.



Alex of Styelista!



Lisa Lihn and our girl Bethany


Michelle & her photographer beau

Bloggers Lisa Linh and Alex Valenzuela (of Styleista) gave us all a lesson in office-to-night-out dressing, while Michelle of Catching Couture went all-out with a dramatic dress and over-the-top hat.



Lovely couple! Bruno (right) is a blogger.



Chiffon Souffle and Style by Stephanie Blog bloggers

Bruno Leandro repped the male fashion bloggers out there, and BFFs Heather and Stephanie talked to us about how to personally connect with an audience through blogging.



We’re planning on stealing your headband, Wendy…watch out.

Our fave look of the night was Wendy’s (of Bendoni Style) fab gold headband.  Just plain glam!

Although the attendees showed off a mix of styles and looks, there was one common accessory that the bloggers all toted around: a personal photographer!  No fashion blog is complete without one, right?



LOVE her leopard/leather outfit



Drink it up!



Marina talking to Katherine Kidd about how amazing the new KK collection is!

The kickoff party was a blast, and we can’t wait to share our favorite looks from LA Fashion Week with you tomorrow!
