NOLA Fashion Week

I attended my first fashion a few days ago. It was held in the Shops at Canal Place - Saks 5th Ave. I managed to get a front row seat so I could take pictures and I took a video as well, but unfortunately I couldn't get it to download. Lets start off with what I wore. 
BCBG perforated jacket (saks), Silk sheer shirt (old), Black crop top underneath (F21), Black skinnies with ankle zippers (TjMaxx), peep toe with open heel ankle booties (old), Necklace (my own C&C Collection), Clutch (Ross)

 This show was called The American Prep. As the name would suggest, it was Americana type style. Think Nautical or Tommy Hilfiger styling. I thought this outfit below was really out of place though, it didn't seem to go with the whole theme.
 I saw quite a few jumpsuits at the shows, for the most part they were all simple and in solid colors.

You've might have seen the Kardashians or seen it in the pages of People Style Watch - wear their jackets like this, just hanging on the shoulders like a cape.  This was pretty much the trend this season and it definitely was on the runway. 
Quite a few calf length dresses were on the runway as well, it's not a look I can get into though. I think I'm too short (5'3) to pull it off. 
 Voluminous bubble bottom dresses - definitely a look, Especially if your going for the drama. It can work depending in the event. It's not my style though. I prefer easy to wear transitional piece that mix and match easily and can go from day to night. 


 The overall look of the show was casual and easy to wear. I noticed overall that pattern dresses and high collars were in quite a few shows.

Love the outfit! Those boots are phenomenal. I saw a pair of badass peep toe boots on theoutnet.com on sale but they were still like $500. No go.
