2013 inspired so many different great fashion topics for me to share. From current trends to local fashion events, I covered a little bit of everything.

Check them out!

Looking Back: Favorite 2013 look

As 2013 comes to a close, I found myself reflecting back on some of my favorite fashion looks. This vintage navy blue dress from Winkleman's made me feel like a star at Hour Detroit's Best of Detroit event in June of this year. The mesh cut-outs also made it on trend with the season. I paired the look with my Enzo Angiolini shoes and Charter's Club jeweler to accessorize. I loved it! I look forward to keeping it fashionable and glamorous in the new year. What's one of your favorite looks from this year?

New Year's 2013 Attire

It is all about the sparkle and glam for ringing in the new year. And it's the last time to look fab before the old year closes and a new year begins. Bring in the new year with absolute style! Personally, I find the LBD or any black dress, paired with the right accessories a slam dunk for New Year's Eve. It's timeless, effortless, and screams glamour. Here a few picks of some LBDs that look great and easy to doll up for the occasion,courtesy of Polyvore. (Remember it's a new year so you can wear any cocktail or dressy ensemble you wish. A splash of color is sure to look beautiful for the New Year's too. Ultimately, the goal is to be stylish, have fun, and to be your most fashionable when the ball drops at midnight!)

The Detroit Institute of Arts (DIA) has partnered up with the Detroit Garment Group Guild (DG3), to host a competition geared towards local fashion designers interested in participating in the DIA’s upcoming  exhibition, Samurai: Beyond the Sword exhibition.  The exhibition opens March 9, 2014.

Designers interesting in participating are asked to create a complete outfit that’s inspired by the Samurai exhibition. In addition, designers need to submit an electronic portfolio of their work of at least 10 designs to Karen Buscemi, the President of the DG3 at detroitgarmentgroup@gmail.com.  Entries are due  by January 31. Preference will be given to designers from the tri-county area and to those with a demonstrated history of high-quality work.

The DG3 will select 10 designers to tour the exhibition and to display their Samurai-inspired outfits. DG3 will cover the cost of the materials for bringing these innovative ensembles to life. Lastly, the designers will post blogs and/or vlogs while they are creating their outfits for the exhibition.
