This year was my third time attending a show at Fashion Week El Paseo. My husband and I had SO much fun the first year that we have now made it an annual tradition. Last year I was covering the event for my blog and showed up to the event with my camera but had left my battery charging back at the hotel. Thank goodness I had my fully charged iphone! This year my husband had the party fouls and realized he had left his suit at home while we were getting ready. We normally don’t get that dressed up in the desert but fashion week is always a good excuse to get dressed up and make a night of it. Oh, and then as soon as we got to the event, he realized he left his ticket back at the hotel! LOL. Thankfully he had purchased his ticket with a credit card so they were able to give him a replacement ticket! After that debacle, we were ready to get the fun started! The shows always start off with a fun cocktail reception which also provides some of the best people watching.

Zandra Rhodes

This year we attended the Zandra Rhodes show and once again I was so honored to be given front row access. The best seat in the house if you ask me…right at the end of the runway. This time I had my camera and iphone in hand and I was even posting live snaps (that’s snapchat…for my mom…and any others who don’t know what “snaps” are =)). Dame Zandra Rhodes is known for her textile designs and was once dubbed the “Princess of Punk”. The models all wore fun colorful wigs to match Rhodes colorful designs. It was a super fun vibe but the wedding gown at the end was simply stunning! You can check out some of my faves below:

Karen Barone

We ran into Karen Barone again this year so of course I had to snap a quick pic with her. This outfit was much more tame than years past. She and her husband are always so sweet and a delight to talk to. I mean, did you really go to Fashion Week El Paseo if you don’t get a pic with Karen? I think not! =)
