Rock Fashion Week

The second night of Rock Fashion Week featured Tristan+Trista, Boy Meets Girl, the Pink Dress Collection, and Biatta Intimates.



I met the very, very sweet and talented designer behind Tristan+Trista. Not only are her amazing outfits beautiful and very well crafted, each design has a story. More on Tristan+Trista in a later post!



Boy Meets Girl featured contemporary wears like denim, shirts, light jackets, and patterned stockings. There was edge to the collection but definitely still a very wearable.



The Pink Dress Collection featured the works of many designers. The fashion show was hosted to benefit the Susan G Komen foundation's efforts to cure breast cancer. Cool thing was a whole bunch of the models weren't stick thin!



I didn't really take pictures of the Biatta Intimates collection cuz it felt so awkward taking pictures of girls in skimpy lingerie. You should have seen all the guys, ugh, taking pictures the whole time. Butttt they did give away awesome gift bags with lingerie!!!

And what I wore for Rock Fashion Week...




The sheer dress is vintage with a lace applique on top and lace panels around the bottom of the skirt. I bought the jacket in Japan from Sly. It was called the Napoleon haha because of the military buttons, gold edging, and high collar.



With my friend Alicia! Detail of the skirt below.



And Sierra!



Anyways, when I have events like Rock Fashion Week, I try to put together outfits by mixing my favorite vintage items with modern pieces. I don't want to look like I came out of another time period, but I don't want to look like everyone else so I'll add something really "trendy" like this military jacket over a conservative dress like this one.



And now going to say hi to all of you on your blogs!

  17. Hi Patty Ann. How are you? I've been meaning to drop by but my internet has been slow lately so I'm having a hard time visiting people's blogs.

    Great post! I really like what you wore to the fashion show. I love the detail in your white dress and it looks perfect with the navy jacket. Your outfit is very well put together. Everything down to the shoes and how you did your hair.

    The runway collections are also very nice. Hope you have a wonderful week :)
