NG: Staying Neutral While Dodging Blahs

This fall neutrals are the must have colors of the season. This color frenzy has been seen all across designer runway shows and has trickled down to our closets. In the past neutrals were mostly considered safe and boring, but with many celebs and designers diving in and reviving the neutral pallets these colors have now gained the “It factor” recognition.

NG: Spill the Wine; Banana Republic’s Grand Opening on the Plaza

The opening party for the new Banana Republic location on the Plaza hosted a great crowd. This grand new store is boasted to be one of the best and largest in the country, and rightly so.

NG: New town/New fashion

Being from NYC, a pastime for a girl like me is reviewing the trendy threads of women that I see around town…

Trend starters and women that look like they’ve gotten high on Vogue or Nylon magazine quench my never ending fashion appetite. Few are these beauties in the Midwest but  I’ve had the opportunity to see such rarities strutting it on the streets of KCMO. I love that even in the Midwest there are women that LIVE , LOVE FASHION.

These risk takers in my opinion  – since fashion is not on the No. 1 to-do list of the majority of women in this region –  have earned the coveted title of FASHIONISTAS.
