Sometimes life gets away from you. And other times, it seems like it is, but you're just such a #GirlBoss working tirelessly in the background. For me, it's been the latter. I've been so busy lately, but it's been a blessing in disguise. I have so much stuff planned for you guys, I can't wait to share!

I went last year and it's been incredibly valuable to me to this day, due to all the networking opps! DGG’s FashionSpeak 2015, Michigan’s only conference for the fashion industry, will bring together nationally recognized experts in five crucial fields; each conducting a 70-minute workshop, all centered around the business of fashion.
Can't wait to see all the great connections I'll make this year.

OUT AND ABOUT: WHAT I'VE BEEN UP TO
Neiman Marcus CUSP + Styleshack Event took place on Thursday, September 17th. A fun evening of cocktails and sweet treats while shopping the latest trends in CUSP. I hung out with Lindsey Alexander, blogger at DG3's StyleFactory and Taylor Hornecker, my lovely co-worker and social media extraordinaire at Ignite Social Media.
Check out Styleshack's Digital Style Quiz that can help narrow your choices next time you stop by at Neiman's CUSP.
Honda Civic 2016 Unveil: Honda invited me to check out their new Civic before anyone else on Wednesday 9/16, and really test drive it in a way any fashion-forward girl would – by checking the lipstick mirror.
#FashionBA Girls' Happy Hour: Also on 9/16, my fellow fashion bloggers in the Fashion Bloggers Alliance got together at Bobcat Bonnie's in Corktown for drinks, laughs, and pictures of course.
The Fashion D.Fined Exhibit Opening Night on Sept. 11 was awesome and I wanted to share more pics of the evening! It's so great to be in the presence of amazing fashion design from the past and what to look forward to in the future.
