A Stylist's Journey: A little piece of Fashion Heaven at Neiman Marcus

 


Washington, DC may not be considered a fashion Mecca just yet, but it pays to be a stylist in a place where you have lifelong roots. I was so excited to receive the invite above from my Kia Kravitz, Manager and Style Expert at Neiman Marcus DC (follow her @kiakravitz for all your designer wants and needs). Kia has been fashion forward since I met her in the 8th grade and I was truly honored that she included me to attend along with her VIP clients. I expected to see amazing fashions from top designers but had no idea how fabulous the presentation would be.

Neiman Marcus' Fashion Director Ken Downing is the definition of a Style Maven. The looks he put together were so well crafted and thought out and meticulous and yet everything seemed effortless. I couldn't wait to blog about the event but now that I am writing this, I realize that I don't even have sufficient words to describe the energy of the show. It was incredibly inspiring to see the nuances and detail in Mr. Downing's selections - I loved how he mixed designers, Michael Kors with Chanel, Saint Laurent and Tom Ford, Stuart Weitzman paired with Gucci.

I thought of how I mix my fashion finds from Target or Zara with a high-end piece and felt a sense of style vindication (on a much smaller budget of course). I was so floating in fashion and style Heaven!

Below are some of my favorite pics and video from the event.






Thank you Ken Downing for being so gracious and warm with your guests! 


And thank you again Kia! Looking forward to the next opportunity to learn and grow on this style journey! And cannot wait for my next VIP style shipment!

Loved these at the show
A day later they were at my door!
