Kiddies, Ponies & Swarovski…Oh My!

It’s that time of the year again!  Labor Day has come and gone.  We’re technically not supposed to wear white anymore (but, hey…we’re San Diegans AND fashionistas, we’ll wear what we gosh darn please!).  La rentree or the re-entry into the year after a summer of warm and sunny vacations is upon us whether we want it to or not.

And if you are a bit sad that the fun days of summer are behind you, fret not.  It’s time for the annual Polo Event for FGI San Diego.  Nothing says summer like a beautiful dress, a smashing hat, oversized sunglasses and ponies.  FGI secures VIP tables for their guests under the raised tents at the San Diego Polo Club fields in exquisite Rancho Santa Fe where the wind carries the salty tang of the ocean combined with the fresh earth smell of the divots.

This year’s festivities include a fashion show (of course!), but instead of tall, willowy models walking the field in the the chicest of San Diego attire, it will be filled with pint-sized fashionistas with lots of attitude.  This year’s fashion extravaganza is a “kiddie” show with the most adorable kids in San Diego and features attire from local San Diego based Five Loaves Two Fish Clothing and other children’s boutiques.

And no FGI San Diego event would be complete without an opportunity drawing!  And this year, boy is it a doozy!  The most stunning, sparkly, shiny necklace graciously donated by the phenomenal Swarovski.  With all proceeds benefiting local San Diego fashion students, is there a better way to look gorgeous while being philanthropic?

It is the MUST ATTEND event of the year that FGI San Diego puts on and this year will be no exception.  Tickets include admission to polo, reserved tables under the raised VIP tents, lunch, champagne during the divot stomp and an afternoon of fun with your fellow fashionistas.

Where the Beautiful People Are…

In Couture, Events, Fashion Events, FGI, La Jolla Fashion Film Festival on July 25, 2014 at 5:10 pm

This weekend in San Diego, it seems that everyone is talking about Comic-Con and all of the crazy people with their even crazier costumes.  But if you were wondering where all of the beautiful and fashionable people were, then look no further than La Jolla.  That’s right, the La Jolla Fashion Film Festival has returned for its 5th year and it’s even bigger and badder than ever.

Day One’s red carpet definitely did not disappoint.  San Diego’s fashion designer darling, Andre Soriano sprinkled his pixie dust of fabulosity throughout the entire runway with his stunning purple confection with a train that needed its own entourage.


Fashion icon Edith Head made an appearance giving her seal of approval on those outfits that were to die for.


And Fashion Group International San Diego members were in attendance – some for fun, some for work, some for both.

The one and only Diana Cavagnaro always stunning in one of her fascinators.


The exquisite Linnea Zeiner working literally on the red carpet.


A huge thank you to my partner-in-crime at the La Jolla Fashion Film Festival – Samia Lavenant, Guest Relations Manager.


And of course, to the man who makes it all happen…Fred Sweet, LJFFF Producer.


Looking forward to Day Two!

I’m So Excited! I Just Can’t Hide It! I’m About to Lose Control and I Think I Like It!

Cheesy title, I know, but only a true fashionista would get this excited about fashion trends!

What’s gotten me so excited is FGI San Diego’s upcoming Trend Report showcasing the Fall/Winter 2013 runway collections.


This season’s event is very different from previous trend reports.  You get to not only see what the upcoming trends are as well as hear what the experts, like Marylou Luther have to say, but you also get to EXPERIENCE the new trends.  FGI San Diego has arranged to have some of the top local peeps attend Trend Report and showcase those top trends for you to see, touch, hear, taste and smell.  That’s right! I said taste and smell!  Because they are taking us through not only the beauty, fashion, accessories and home trends but also upcoming food trends!

The event’s being held at Hera Hub in Sorrento Valley.  For those of you who are unfamiliar with Hera Hub, it is a spa-inspired coworking space for female entrepreneurs in San Diego.  They have two locations and very affordable memberships to allow you to use their space to meet with clients, connect and collaborate with like-minded businesswomen, and so much more.  It’s absolutely perfect for freelancers, independent consultants, entrepreneurs, non-profits, authors and more.

So, come out and EXPERIENCE all that the Fall/Winter 2013 is going to offer.  And bring a friend!  Because fashion (like shoes) is always better in pairs!
