When You Wear Pants This Loud . . .


. . . you can usually go one of two ways: the safe way and pair them with neutrals or the Screw It It's Friday and I Have a Full Agenda Like a Rock Star way.  Clearly I chose the latter. 

So yes, needless to say, I was in a mood to pull out all the stops today.  Why stop at leopard skinnies when you can also don highlighter peep-toes, a bad ass rock band tee, a suede blazer and, just for funsies, a bright polka dot scarf?  I felt like Steven Tyler.

And sometimes when you wear pants this loud . . .

You get hunted down by the mall manager asking who you're working with and what you're taking pictures of and informing you that you need a permit from the manager to take photos of stores . . . but it's ok to just take photos of yourself.

And sometimes when you wear pants this loud . . .

You watch Notorious-the story of Biggie Smalls-with your brother and decide to listen to Biggie in your car mercilessly all day.

And sometimes when you wear pants this loud . . . 

You get to end your night by making an impromptu pit-stop at a friend's house on the way home and you are just grateful for the good (old and newly introduced) people in your life in general.

And sometimes when you wear pants this loud . . .

You get home from a long day and find your oldest son waiting up for you and he might bend your arm enough to just fit in a couple quick games of Uno while he tells you about his day.

And sometimes when you wear pants this loud . . .

 You get invited to a fashion show by Nyndia Diligent!!!  You may remember her from one of the fashion shows I went to back in October.

It was at the Fort Collins Museum of Art and guess what?  Downtown was decked to the brim with the most gorgeous lights I've ever seen!  I give 'em mad props.

Here is a photo of Nyndia herself.  We both wore leopard!  Her show tonight was for her Resort Wear 2013. I was super impressed with her collection, as I was at the last show.  The pink cover-up below is one of her pieces.  

 She used recycled or re-used material for all of her clothes.  She got some of the fabric from a woman in Guatamala and some of it from thrift stores.  My kinda girl!

She had a bunch of yummy snacks and they all looked so nice.  Her boyfriend was helping to cater the show and otherwise.  Aw!  Isn't that sweet?

The cool thing about being from Colorado and going to a fashion show is that it is much more relaxed than I would picture in somewhere big fashionwise like Texas or New York or California.  I got to take quite a few shots.  It was really lovely.

A lot of the models that I interviewed several weeks ago were walking in tonight's fashion show, which was cool. 

I absolutely loved this orange suit!  And the bag is so great--perfect for a resort.  Nyndia made that bag this morning!  Can you believe it?!?!?!

And check out this short suit!  So cute!  I love the Guatamalan fabric accents in the collar and the shorts.  High-waisted and yellow?  Right up my alley.

This look was super cute and also perfect for a resort.  I love the olive green and the deep purple.  Of course, the collar adds it's own flair and you should see the back!  It has an open button back.  So.  Freaking.  Cute.

I loved the shear, the color and the cuts in this cover up.  So gorgeous.

The back of this blouse was what sold me on it.  So subtly sexy.  And perfect with the high-waisted skirt!

And here is Joelle, another model that I met a few months back, in some amazing high-waisted orange trousers!  And I love the detail on her cardigan!

Ok, these two weren't models.  And they aren't wearing Nyndia's designs.  But they were just too darn cute not to get a picture of.  Notice the bowtie on this handsome guy and this adorable suit in the hunter green?  Is corduroy.  Corduroy.  So cute.

And sometimes when you wear pants this loud, you blink and realize that November is so O-V-E-R . .
