Enstyle Butik Meet & Greet Recap

Last night we attended the Enstyle Butik Mix & Mingle with hosts Vanessa Posso of RichGirlz Accessories and designer Delicia Cordon of DeCordon. We sipped on a little wine while we shopped the floor and happy to have found a diverse selection for any woman’s style. We came across a white leather crop top and embellished navy pants which are totally on trend for the fall/winter 2013 season. This was definitely a “Wrk IT Girl” event as there were so many great young women at this event who are all ambitious and working towards their goals. We met JoJo who is the owner of StrutN’ Face Makeup Artistry, CJ who is an aspiring handbag designer, Ronesha, owner of Gifted and Talented Kids Academy, Regina who is the PR Manager for Enstyle Butik, and Tiffany who owns Monique’s Hair Boutique. We indulged in the energy of one space full of amazing women and can’t wait for another opportunity to connect with more awesome people.

Fashion Houston 2013 Outfit

Fashion Houston 2013

We haven’t done an outfit post in a while and we wanted to share what our Editor-In-Chief wore. She sported a black lightweight vintage blazer, a Kardashian Kollection top, vintage pleather leggings, and Charlotte Russe lace-up heels. The shoes were very comfortable and no complaints after 4 hours of walking around and mingling. The blazer was perfect as the temperature that night was a little cool inside. It was as chic yet effortless outfit that was perfect for a fashion show.

Something Extra:

We wanted to share some candid shots from Fashion Houston the other night and also some outfits that we liked as well.

Fashion Houston 2013

We had an amazing time last night at Fashion Houston and so happy to return. Last year was amazing, but this year is even greater! As you enter, you get the experience of the exciting red carpet with lights and photographers taking your picture and sexy Audi cars to pose with. Last year we met Yolanda Adams and we shared how much that moment meant, and this year we met the Founder/President of Fashion Houston Jared Lang! If it weren’t for Fashion Houston, when would we have had that full circle moment with Yolanda? Who knows.

Marios Schwab opened the show with a fantastic mini-movie and Catherine Deane finished the first half of the show with her gorgeous dresses.

Last night we saw some amazing and talented emerging designers such as Amir Taghi, Viet Kent Nguyen, and Jo’se Reyes. We were in love with Amir’s hand crafted feather eye lashes and Viet’s awesome music with colorful pieces. We were in awe over Jo’se’s dramatic gowns at the end of his collection on the runway.

Our favorite designers of the night were Talbot Runhof and their perfect and crisp designs. They used a lot of black and white and pops of yellow in the collection.

We were so happy that we had the chance to be on the press team for Fashion Houston this year! Thanks to Houston Fashion Bloggers for passing along this opportunity.

Macy’s Fall Preview Event

We had the pleasure of attending a Macy’s Fall Fashion Preview Meetup at Macy’s Memorial City Mall in Houston, TX. We were shown several great fashion finds from different brands including Rachel Roy, INC, Ralph Lauren, and Ivanka Trump. The trends highlighted were the military trend, embellishments, stripes & geometric shapes, green/emerald colors. Our amazing presenters were Macy’s Managers Erica & Kaitlyn and they were so hospitable and knowledgeable of the merchandise. We sat in on the presentation enjoying some lite bites and italian soda. It was such a great time and we can’t wait to work with Macy’s again!

Enjoy some of the beautiful styles below!

Topshop x Houston

A couple weeks ago Wrk IT Girl attended the Topshop Loves Houston event in Nordstrom at Houston Galleria. We shopped and mingled with other Topshop and fashion lovers. Dallas fashion blogger Merritt Beck of The Style Scribe hosted the event and she was so sweet. Merritt shared with us some of her favorite Topshop pieces, including the motorcycle jacket that she threw over her shoulders. We received swag bags with custom Topshop Loves Houston labels, enjoyed awesome beats from a local DJ, and makeup touchups with Topshop Beauty products. We can’t wait for Topshop Beauty to be available in-store one day. In the meantime head over the their website to view the selection of products!

Houston Vintage Festival Recap

We attended the Houston Vintage Festival a couple weeks ago and wanted to share some of our favorite vintage boutiques we came across! We fell in love with A Hippy Heart Vintage setup in it’s little trailer. The clothes were actually hanging on racks inside the trailer along side a setup of a mini seating area and oven. We also loved the fantastic selections from F&F Vintage and Eleanor Rose Vintage & Custom Garments Boutiques and even splurged on a few items for a future photoshoot for WrkITGirl! Kat’s Meow salon was in the building and were styling vintage hair makeovers for only $20! There were so many great hair styles and makeup going on at the fest it felt like we were in the 40s and 50s. Although it rained cats and dogs that day there was a great turnout and there were lots of fellow vintage lovers out and about! We hope to see you at the next one!

Exclusive Interview Jonathas Season 2 of NBC’s The Voice

Jonathas at Debonair 9:23

WrkITGirl.com had the pleasure of interviewing Jonathas from Season 2 of NBC’s The Voice and we had an amazing time with him. He was on Team Christina Aguilera when he was on the show and he was definitely a favorite of the ladies. He continues to amaze his fans by creating musical hits like “Written in Stone” and “Girl from Portugal”. This Houston Native (turned Austin, TX transplant) recently stopped into Houston, TX hot spot Debonair Lounge to perform, and he shared with us his inside secrets from what inspires his style to his beauty tips for the busy/traveling man. He wore all black and his entire outfit was Zara. He wore a Zara black top with faux leather appliqué and black Zara harem pants. For more on our interview, click the video below to listen in on the interview.

You can follow Jonathas’ artistic journey via Twitter and Instagram.

Sip & Shop Event with Local Houston Boutiques

We recently attended the Sip & Shop Event held at Empire Lounge in Houston, TX. The event was very swank with a full bar and great music by DJ Young Streetz. There were vintage shops like Eleanor Rose or F&F Vintage and there were trendy boutiques like House of Luxe and rebelRise Accessories. We fell in love with the super cute selection from children’s boutique Lux & Lola! After browsing around and buying a few things, we got to chat with a few of the boutique owners. We found that they were all independent young women who have a common vision to make their mark in the fashion industry! If you haven’t done so already, you should stop by the Sip & Shop events coming up soon!
