The key to planning anything, is promotion!!!!!! In our fashion's show case, we raid people with social networking invites, use word of mouth, and pass out flyers. Speaking of flyers......check out these beauties above.

So....I may be becoming a sneaker head.

Above are my lovely DC's that I just purchased to Debut at my Fashion show in October. Now I've always loved shoes but I've always preferred boots and flats over heels or gym shoes. But now the older I get, the more versatile I become, and sneakers are just getting so pretty! The only problem is I tend to buy shoes that you can only wear with certain colors, and in this case a color that I never ever wear(purple). Well stay tuned to see what I throw on with these pretty kicks.

So I think I may be a little obsessed with this woman. I just love her edge! And I want to prove to everyone, that unlike people think...Rihanna did not come up with the new style she is rocking. If you look at the pic above, you see a much better version of Ri Ri's do. Now...forgive me for coming off as a hater, because I do value Rihanna as a style icon. But please people give credit, where credit is due.

On it's way to greatness!

So my friend's mom started this great website, that features her very affordable and very beautiful Jewelry. That in her mind is actually pretty ugly lol, not really but that's the name of her site. Now in all honestly the Jewels are anything but ugly, and truly worth every penny. In fact I have a eye on the pretty pair of earrings pictured above. Hopefully my bank account will allow me to treat myself to these. Stay tuned to find out if I get them. And until then, check out all the pretty things at>>>
Today is the last day to vote for me as cutest blog.

Behind the Scenes of Fashion Is Life

(Flyer from last year's show)
This fall I am apart of the planning committee of The 2nd Annual Fashion Is Life. The show will be at Kent State on October 1st, and I have to admit I can't wait til October 2nd. I mean I love fashion shows but I have come to realize this: planning a fashion show is a whole other ball park than just sitting in the audience. Once school starts we will be caught in a whirlwind of model calls, rehearsals, and fittings. I know this sounds like a lot but it's actually a fun and educational experience. That's why I'm starting a countdown to the show. Up until October 1st, I will be posting everything that goes on behind the scenes of the show, from the planning process to actual pictures from backstage. I want to inspire you readers to go out and get involved in fashion, as well as give you a chance to know the great people that are helping me make this show a success. There will be more to come, so stay tuned!!

Friend Spot-Shenequa Lee

What can I say about this girl. We met At Kupita, a multicultural freshmen orientation. I remember her randomly coming up and starting a conversation with me and thinking this girl is so friendly. It took our actual friendship a little while to build and although we don't see each other all the time. I know she's always there to tag along to the random talent shows and for me to complain to about school and vice-versa. I guess you can say we are close friends from afar. Anyways, here's her friend spot. Stay tuned for more.

1.Name: Shenequa Lee
