On Sunday I had the opportunity to attend the “Spring/Summer Trends 101” event hosted by Erika (above left) of Love of Style by Erika and Alana (above right) of Luxury Girl Boutique. Erika (who is incredibly cute, funny, and a lover of all things fabulous) gave her tips on how to style current trends of the season such as:
• jewel tones
• ombré denim shorts
• graphic t-shirts
• leopard + red
• bow tops
• black & white
• statement accessories
• mixing prints
• cropped tops
You can bet that Luxury Girl Boutique carries almost all of the above! The Luxury Girl is described as “free spirited, well traveled, educated, fashion forward, trendy, and glamorous.” Anything you purchase is a definite trend-on piece. One of the things that caught my attention is their “Customized Denim Bar.” Here you can get your denim modified by adding studs, ombré effects, distressed cut-offs, color dyed, and more. I’m tellin’ ya, refashioning is taking over.
I love attending these affairs because I have the chance to network with other bloggers within and outside of the fashion field. It can be so heart warming to listen to the stories of business start-ups, past experiences, and future aspirations. Most of the ladies I met have a retail background who don’t see it as a burdened job but rather have a passion for style and helping others achieve their best look. These ladies also see the potential and positivity in Detroit and want to revive it which is inspiring and very exciting. I met Monike, the woman behind Yum Delish and a Detroit optimist, who brought amazing chocolate covered strawberries which I won the drawing for a half dozen! Bam!
