What I Wore to Nashville Fashion Week 2017

What I Wore to Nashville Fashion Week 2017

It's been an eventful year so far. If you've been following me on social media you know that I've spent the bulk of the last four months having a lot of damage to my eyes fixed by the amazing staff at Toyos Clinic. More on that - because it has forever changed my life for the better - soon. This time it's all about how to look fabulous for all six days of Nashville Fashion Week 2017 without breaking the bank to do it.

The Good We Can Do

The Good We Can Do

This world could use our help, dont'cha think? 

Tiny But Mighty is a non-profit that raises money to help homeless animals in Nashville, Tn. Instead of focusing on heart-wrenching sadness the annual fundraiser uses light-hearted humor to solicit donations for the Nashville Humane Association.

Marmi Shoes Revisited

Marmi Shoes Revisited

Last year I introduced you to Marmi shoes, a store that features extended sizes and alternate widths. They specialize in fashionable, European influenced footwear and accessories, including Italian brands Vaneli and Sesto Meucci in sizes 4-13 and Super-Slim to Wide widths. These Kaila boots by Vaneli are an edgy, Italian take on a cowboy boot. They come in narrow, medium and wide widths - which means I can wear them comfortably - and, c'mon, they're just gorgeous!

Last week I got to add co-founder, co-producer and runway model for Nashville's first inclusive fashion show to the mix.

Xpandasox Revisited

Xpandasox Revisited

Last November I introduced you to a fabulously clever and stylish hosiery brand called Xpandasox. Read my original post about Xpandasox that I styled with an Amanda Valentine tunic, and this outfit is also featured in their 2016 lookbook. The concept of an expandable calf was originally conceived for plus-sized and athletic women with wide, muscular calves. But Xpandasox has earned a place in the adaptive clothing market as well.

Baciano

Baciano

As big as I am on shopping locally whenever possible, sometimes circumstances dictate otherwise. Los Angeles based clothier Baciano recently contacted me to try two pieces - the Mallory and the Eleanor -  from their online collection and do a little show-and-tell for my readers. I received these pieces for free to showcase and review, but the opinions are my own.
