While we’re used to looking ahead to the next season during fashion shows (springs styles in September, fall styles in February), you can usually count on being ready to buy whatever’s showing at on the runway at Kansas City’s annual Rock the Block Fashion Show in May.
Friday night, though, was unusually chilly, so I was back to looking forward to being able to slip into the pretty maxi dresses, short shorts and sleeveless everything that the local boutiques sent down the runway at the Kansas City Live Block of the Kansas City Power & Light District.
That didn’t keep me from baring my legs, for the night, but it was definitely a night for booties and the poodle coat. Behold:
Coat // Langford Market
Dress // c/o Ross Dress for Less
Booties // Sam Edelman
Glasses // Warby Parker
Earrings // BaubleBar c/o Jane Iredale
Ring // c/o Anjolee
Lip Gloss // “Mauve” c/o EnvyDerm
See what I wore to Rock the Block 2013!
This year, the Rock the Block Fashion Show team invited me to style a couple of models for the special runway presentation benefiting Wayside Waifs, a nonprofit humane society and animal welfare organization in Kansas City.
As many of you know, I’m a bona fide cat lady, but I love doggies, too, so of course I said yes.
I pulled two looks from Zafar Boutique and was thrilled to see the gorgeous models come out with their pretty pooches!
While the dogs were a bit shy to walk the runway, they eventually got used to being in the spotlight and did a fantastic job of garnering “ooohs” and “awwwws” from the packed crowd.
Fellow KC-area bloggers Fashion Column Twins and Pretty, Polished, Perfect also styled looks for the presentation. Congrats, ladies!
Now, onto the boutique shows!
Zafar and Envolve Boutique showed as well as six boutiques located within KC Garment District Boutique and Collective: Two Chic Blvd, Label Clothier, Imagery, Eye Candy Boutique, Fitness Culture and Frankie & Jules Boutique.
Below are my eight favorite looks of the night, which range from gypsy chic and rockstar glam to flirty feminine and festival free spirit.
If by the end of the pics below you aren’t craving a headpiece or two, there’s something wrong!
