While I Was Out

Due to the intensely close score at the 2nd quarter of the Vikings/Packers game, it may have been in my best interest to save this post for tomorrow, when people are actually looking at their computer screens instead of their TV’s. Alas, I may as well seize this free moment. This might be the longest I’ve ever been away from my blog since the day I started, but that doesn’t mean I’ve been without things to blog about – which may lead to an explosion of topics all over The Life Styled. I’ll do my best to tame it…. I spent the last two weeks in Minnesota and ran into lots of great fashion while I was there, thanks to MN Fashion Week!

First, I had the privilege of working with the wonderful folks over at Twin Cities Live on another segment – this time about Minnesota based fashion. Besties Elizabeth, Jessie, and my favorite boutique owner Jen (of Sisters Ugly in Northfield) came out to help me show off some most covetable outfits from MN boutiques and designers. See the segment.

Jessie in Karma, Picky Girl, and Calpurnia Peach.

Next stop, Fashion in the Sky, hosted by my fave TCL producer Melissa Specken and the show’s host Elizabeth Ries. It was a lovely fall evening for a rooftop fashion show, red velvet cupcakes, and red wine. All the models worked the runway in fashions from top Twin Cities boutiques (including some of the ones featured in our segment) to the sounds of DJ spun club tunes… and the hooting and hollering coming from our corner – still trying to decide if that was inappropriate or much appreciated…

September was also the month of weddings. Here’s a shoutout to three fabulously fashionable couples…

Tim and Heather’s rustic, misty mountain top September 12th wedding in upstate New York was featured in Time Out NY!
Grace and Alex, September 19th at Summit Manor in St. Paul, MN. The girl sure knows how to pick bridesmaids dresses… and the best wedding cocktails ever!
Dan and Aubry, September 25th at Loring Pasta Bar/Varsity Theatre in Minneapolis. In the middle of the groom’s welcome speech, he lead his bride into their rendition of “I’ve Had the Time of My Life.” Who can top a karaoke wedding?
Now that September has swiftly come and gone, I’m looking to the future! Stay tuned for lots of fun things to come, including some fab new series – Etsy Obsessions, Home Style, Boutique Bombards, and Monthly Favorites!
