Houston Happenings | Kaleidoscope Houston 2017

It’s that time again! Pamela Andino and her amazing team of creatives are bringing Houston another ultra fabulous event. Kaleidoscope Houston 2017 is here! The kick off party was held last Friday and it really got me pumped up for January 25, the first night. The theme for Wednesday in “Undefeated” which will have a sporty chic feel and feature athletes from various backgrounds. There will be music, food, drinks, dancing, and most importantly, amazing Houston creatives.

The second night’s theme is called “Collide” and will be rocker chic with a bit fur leather and shine. You can look forward to fashion runway, art exhibits, dancing, live art, silent auction, pop-up retail shops, and musical performances. Check out a few shots from the kick off party and I hope to see you Wednesday at Houston Life! Click this link for more information 🙂

Pure Luxury | OOTD

Sometimes luxury is a crazy comfortable graphic tee, a pair of thrifted Levi’s, your most comfortable pair of heels, and your tried and true moto jacket. I mean seriously, when you need to look like you “tried” to pull yourself together but you really just feel like “jeans and a t-shirt” a look like this will work every time.

My friends over at Richly Clad have some of the best graphic t-shirts around. All of my favorites come from there and they’re so soft you could sleep in them. This one is no different. My “Pure Luxury” athletic gray t-shirt is everything I need and more. It dresses up a bit, dressing way down, and has all of the comfort you could ever want. As for my jeans, I thrifted a pair of vintage mom Levi’s a while ago and they’re so awesome, I could sleep in those too! Curse the people who starting the low rise denim trends. I like my jeans high with deep pockets. Lol

The sweetest thing about this look is the necklace. My dad got it for me for Christmas this year and said, I know you don’t need anything but this is what I thought a classy lady would wear. I was so impressed and happy to know that he wants to be apart of my fashion adventures. As for the hat and heels, they are totally optional. This looks works well even wit out them but I’m kind of in love with this hat!

Leave me a comment about your “jeans and t-shirt” look. Enjoy!

NYE with Inclan + Hungry’s | OOTD

It’s not often that I have a look and evening plans for you all at once but today is your lucky day! What if you showed up in this fun navy fuzzy dress and wine colored hooded coat from Inclan, to Hungry’s grand opening to Upstairs on New Year’s Eve?!? Sounds like a slam dunk to me, plus you’d be supporting two Houston based businesses at the same time 🙂

The new Upstairs is having its grand opening on a very special day. Join the wonderful staff at Hungry’s Upstairs for a fun New Year’s Eve celebration. I’ve already previewed the space and sampled the food for you so trust me when I say you won’t be disappointed. The entire space is new and beautiful but you will especially enjoy the views Upstairs. If your’e still looking for something fun to do for NYE, reserve your spot at Upstairs! 

When you walk into Hungry’s Upstairs go in true style with Inclan. This textured dress is making a statement as you enter the new year. It says , “I’m bold, confident, and ready to take on the world.” To top it all off, the rich wine color of their hooded coat will keep you cozy on the Upstairs balcony. It has two front pockets to hold your phone for quick NYE selfies and the hood may come in handy if it ever cools down here in Houston. Lol You can find their pieces at Sloan/Hall and Azuz Boutique in Rice Village and believe me, you’ll want to check them out.

Don’t say I never gave you anything! I just sat two gems right here for you. Make wonderful NYE plans and enjoy!

Exclusive BTS from Kaleidoscope Houston 

Kaleidoscope Houston is a multifaceted 3 day event showcasing art, music,film, and fashion. The venues are amazing and the creative vibes going into the show are even better! The first night is Urbanity, followed by Jet-Set, concluded by Imaginarium.

What is so very special about Kaleidoscope Houston is that all of the talent involved are local creatives with international flare. Every single night you can expect art exhibits, dancing, live art, silent auction, pop-up retail shops, musical performances as well as runway shows.

You get the best value with a 3 day pass but if you have a hectic schedule and can only make it out 1 or 2 nights you will not be disappointed. It’s going to be an event like non other. Here are some bts (behind the scene) photos of some of the creatives shooting some Kaleidoscope Houston promo videos. Be on the look out for them soon. Enjoy!
