It’s officially PSL season and mother nature seems to be on board with bringing fall along with it! I am stoked to bring out all my warm and cozy clothes. Hello sweater weather!! I had the pleasure of attending the Simon Malls Fall Fashion Style event featuring Laura Walters of Style Riot.. let’s just say I was all heart eyes emoji with everything she put together.
What is Style Riot? The fabulous Laura Walters is a fashion guru who offers wardrobe styling and brand consultation. Need to know how to dress for your body type? How about updating your wardrobe? Working with pieces you already have? She does it ALL! She’s been on my radar for quite some time so put her on yours! I love seeing the transformations she posts on facebook. Laura is insanely talented.
Simon Mall Fall Fashion Style Night + Wine Tastings
Simon Malls pulled out all the stops for this event. They partnered up with Banana Republic as well as Palomino. Did you know Palomino serves half price wine on Wednesdays? Winning! They also had delicious meatball appetizers to pair with the wine for our tasting. Delicious!
Can I just say I’m totally drooling over all of their gorgeous fall pieces? I’m usually not a BR shopper, but this certainly changes the game. Laura was instructed to pull 5 different looks.. but ended up pulling 12!! I loved every single outfit she put together. Balloon sleeves, lace, layering.. give it all to me!
She also featured some of the upcoming looks from the Olivia Palmero Capsule Collection which are stunning! The collection comes out on Saturday. I’ll be traveling and anxiously refreshing my phone to snag some of her pieces. Trust me, you don’t want to miss this.
Trends for Fall
Laura was kind enough to walk us through what the upcoming trends for fall and winter are going to be. Some of them include: POWER Red (color), vintage fur, glitter (think shoes!!), high fashion western, 70’s plaid, big hats, BIG sleeves, leisure suits, velvet gowns, florals, and jewel tones. I have a black tie event to attend in December and now I’m on the hunt for a perfect velvet gown. Any recommendations??
Overall, I had a blast. I enjoyed some shopping with two other bloggers – Sarah and Aicha after the presentation. We were jazzed up!! Laura’s energy is incredibly contagious and she is a blast to be around. I’m not the most fashionable person in the world… and I’ll be the first to admit that. However, she had every person in the room totally engaged, excited, and ready for fall fashion! I’ll be living vicariously through her for the next few days as she is headed to NYFW!! So fun!
