All The Festival Fashion From The STS Blue X StyleCon

STS Blue X Stylecon Unicorn

I love parties and denim (seriously who doesn’t?). So, I was thrilled to attend the STS Blue X StyleCon festival season kickoff event at the Hotel Indigo in Downtown Los Angeles last week. If you’ve been following my Instagram, you’ve probably seen some of the photos from the party. I know it's been borderline thirsty, but were so many pretty backgrounds, how could I not? (I. CAN’T. HELP. LOVING. ALL. THE. PRETTY. BACKGROUNDS)

STS Blue X Stylecon Step and Repeat

While parties are fun, can we pause and talk seriously for like half a second? To be honest, I have a little confession. I find jean shopping just about as much fun as waiting in line to pee at Starbucks. (Not just the line, but when you actually get to the bathroom, it's always a nightmare.) But STS Blue jeans fit me so perfectly, jean shopping drama is a thing of the past. OVER IT! This is because their denim stretches to fit my body (and yours) perfectly. Also, I’m not the tallest person and so I normally have to get everything hemmed, but not STS. The only person I know who doesn’t like STS Blue is my tailor, who may be sending out a search party for me as you read this because I haven't seen her in forever.

Denim For Days

STS has so many cute things like these Emma Distressed Skinny jeans in Optic White. Break the rules and don’t wait for Memorial Day to wear this color.  Wear them now! Like this second.

STS also has lots of denim shorts. These have the same signature stretch as the pants do and they make your butt look it should be on the cover of a magazine. This season, I’m all about wearing the black Rose Bowl Distressed Denim Shorts.

I also live in their denim jackets. I just got the Alexis Ruffle Oversize Boyfriend Jacket for spring, which I had customized to make extra special. What a great gift idea or maybe for your sorority.

I also have the Avery Boyfriend Jacket, which is a little less girly. It's also super comfortable. Sometimes, I’ll wear it with a sweatshirt and leggings to go to Pilates. But not spin. Obviously...

Next Level Festival Chic

Ten Sixity Sherman and Madison and Berkely

I was so excited to meet the team from sister labels Madison & Berkely and Ten Sixty Sherman. If you need anything you would describe as festival chic or even festival fabulous, these brands will be your new best friends. Check my Instagram tomorrow (or maybe now depending on when you are reading this) to see a few of my favorite pieces.

Don't Forget Accessories

Gretchen Christine was another sponsor of the party. Designed by Real Housewife, Gretchen Rossi (who, not to brag but I’ve met her IRL and she is super nice) designs these beautiful vegan leather handbags. She also has an awesome vegan nail polish collab with Twila True.

There were so many other fab brands involved with the event including Indi, H2R0se, Billion Dollar Brows, Suja Kumbuca, Neocell, Jet Suite X, and Heroes Beauty.

And Extra Karma Points...

But the purpose of the event wasn't just about fashion or Coachella. It also benefitted Shannon Elizabeth’s Animal Avengers organization. If you want to help them out on the regular, you can round up the pennies from your credit card purchases using the Coin Up app. 

***Special thanks to Speechless Dresses for the romper I wore to this event.

A Party For A Real Housewife's Really Cute Bag Line

Gretchen Rossi is one of my favorite Real Housewives. A few months ago, I interviewed her for A Sweat Life and I’ve been loving on her Gretchen Christine handbag line for a while now. So, I was super excited to attend the Gretchen Christine PopUpParty™ at Impressions in West Hollywood. So many celebs showed up to support her including Peggy Sulahian, Ashley Fargo, Beril Ackay, Lisa Arasheben, Craig Ramsay (From Bravo’s Newlyweds and my podcast), Caitlin O’Conner, Rachel McCord, Ali Levine and Emilia McCarthy. And yes, if you were wondering, Gretchen is absolutely beautiful, nice, and super tiny in person.

It was also great to see all of the Gretchen Christine handbags IRL. I was really surprised because we all know celeb fashion lines are either amazing or a complete disaster. Luckily, the first description applies to this one. Photos don’t really do it justice. Furthermore, every accessory comes with bonus karma points because they are made of vegan leather. 

Impressions also carries her new luggage line, which will basically make everyone at the airport jealous of you. Seriously, not kidding. Keep your eyes on your GC at the baggage claim because people will be tripping over themselves to steal it from you. My favorite bag is the Voyageur Matelassé in White Marble.

Made of quilted nylon and vegan leather, it has 360° spin roller wheels and a bumper-guard at the base. It is sold as a set with a matching purse, which is so cute it almost shouldn't be allowed. You can carry it separately or slide into the trolley handle when you are running through the airport in heels trying not to miss your flight (or is that just me?). The silver clasp also makes it easy to open and close, which is important if you are doing last minute airport shopping (and by if, I mean when). The modern marble print is so clean looking and really stands out. I really want one of these for myself (hint, hint, Gretchen, please swag me out, girl).

Gretchen also debuted her collab nail polish with Twila True. This line has a 5 free formula, which means it doesn’t contain camphor, DBP, formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin and toluene. But more importantly, the colors are absolutely gorgeous. I can’t wait to see what Grethen does next.
