Tomorrow night two of my favorite things come together, Fashion and Charity!! I’ll be joining Elaine Turner and The Young Friends of CanCare for their Winter Style Social. Come sip and shop while I let you in on winter styling secrets. EYEBAR Houston will be there as well, making sure you have that perfect holiday pout with Holiday makeup tips.
Did I mention 20% of the proceeds will benefit CanCare, Inc.? That means you can get the great outfit I styled below and help Fight Cancer With HOPE!! See you tomorrow!
The word “miracle” is often used to characterize any beneficial event that is statistically unlikely but not contrary to the laws of nature, or simply a “wonderful” occurrence.
This dress from Tres Chic Boutique, my CultureMap Holiday Pop Up Shop companion, is just that, a “wonderful” occurrence!
Standing in my dressing room I overheard a woman exclaiming, “This dress is a miracle! I haven’t felt this beautiful in ages!” I of course popped my head out of the dressing room and asked for one in every color. To my surprise this “miracle” dress was just what I was looking for as well. The fabric is forgiving, yet sexy, while the top asymmetrical overlay gives it a modern vibe.
So what makes this dress so miraculous? The woman and I had totally different body types and a age difference of about fifteen years, yet this dress was perfect on both of us! Talk about Sisterhood Of The Traveling Pants!
Don’t believe me? Try the “miracle” dress for yourself this weekend at Tres Chic Boutique during the CultureMap Holiday Pop Up Shop.

This morning I had the pleasure of meeting Trina Turk, at the preview brunch for her Grand Opening in Houston. Her designs are perfect for us Texas girls, bright and full of stylish patterns. I love the way so many of her pieces can go from work to play with simple additions. Today, I have a sneak peek for you and a invite to the boutique Grand Opening tonight!! Did I mention Trina Turk will be there? Enjoy!

Something about that chill in the air that makes Texas women pull out their fur! No joke, I was at an event last night and every woman was wearing fur, in some form or fashion. So with winter on her way I created the perfect Furrrr…. It’s cold out here, look for you today.
This weekend warmth look will take you from day to night, with multiple shoe options. Black on black will streamline your look, while the leather detailing along the side of the leggings will elongate the leg creating a slimming affect. Pearls play up the furs glamour element, while the structured ring gives the look a bit of edge.
FashionBillie Bit: A fur piece is a statement in itself. I suggest keeping the rest of your outfit simple, yet sophisticated.

Yesterday I teamed up with five other fashionistas, to show off designer David Peck’s latest CrOp. Selected as one of Houston’s fashionable influencers by JW Marriott, I styled my own look from Peck’s F/W 14 collection. Today I have a sneak peek for you!!
Feeling the downtown vibe, I took a Mad Men turn and opted for his Pinon scarf neck blouse and Clovis skater skirt with a rust lace overlay. I love high waisted anything. Accentuating the waist is most flattering on all figures.
For my second look, I brought my own Gypsy 05 jewel toned jumper. Jumpsuits are a no brainer outfit. Add some accessories and you are done:) Again these are behind these scenes shots but you can get a good idea of the accessories I added.

I’m kind of obsessing over this Torn by Ronny Kobo plaid dress right now. Plaid has been a big trend for a while now. This dress gives us a ultra-femme, flattering feel to the usual men’s plaid button down shirt. I’ve styled it two ways today.
For my first look, I styled a night on the town, by adding some sassy purple caged stilettos and yellow jeweled clutch. For my second look, I took a note from the Chanel Fall/Winter 2014 show and gave the dress a street style look with a pair of leopard calf hair high-tops. As a woman who runs around in sky high heels all day, I’m loving the growing acceptance of flats/trainers being fashionable. Good enough for Karl, good enough for me:)

There’s something about a woman in a cardigan… said no one ever!! I have to laugh because cardigans may be the most unsexy thing to me. This did not stop me from going on a gilt shopping spree and loading up on five. Yes, five!! Preparing for a long Texas winter I suppose.
Today I paired my Inhabit New York cashmere cardi, with a pair of bold blue capris and matching T-strap stilettos.

Lighting was less than optimal for today’s impromptu photo shoot but I saw a heart shaped balloon and decided to run with it… literally! I am so obsessed with this classic silk dress by Tucker. I have only had it two weeks and I’ve already wore it twice!! Repeat offender here. It’s so simple and the classic style reminded me of my Mimi- The Billie in FashionBillie.
