A Press Pass?

If you've been following me the last couple of days you know I'm headed to the EILEEN FISHER fashion show on Thursday. I'm not just attending. I'm attending with a press pass. But what does that really mean? Wikipedia says it means I'm a practicing journalist. True, I suppose. And certain privileges come with it. Awesome. But how do I know what those privileges are? I know I'll be taking pictures of the runway show and possibly some attendees. I'll be writing a blog post after the fact and probably posting to social media during the live event. But do I need to be prepared with questions for the fashion show tipsters? What do I ask? Do I mingle and chat with guests? What do I say? HOw many press passes will be there? Oy vey. My head is spinning. I've got to chill this noggin'.

Any tips ladies and gents?

The Big Question

"What do I wear to the fashion show?" Of course!! I haven't been able to stop thinking about this since I accepted the invitation to attend the EILEEN FISHER fashion show. I immedietly thought of Indiana Adams of Indiana Elsewhere. She has a wonderfully quirky style and always looks effortlessly chic when attending events. That's the vibe I want to exude. But when I have events to attend I often over-think and over-style myself. I just need to keep cool and channel Indiana.

Here are a few mixes I thought up over the weekend. I need something transitional becasue it's outside, in the evening and the weather lady says it might rain. I also want to look professional, yet unique, showing my eye for style like layering, mixing prints and knowing what's on trend. I will definitely need comfortable shoes and bag big enough to hold my essentials plus my camera. What would you wear?

A Reason to Return

It's been so long since I've written a real post I've practically lost my typing skills. Let's see if I can warm up my fingers. Okay. Ready. Set. Type! Alright, well. I've been hemming and hahing about returning to the blog world and have been posting on my Facebook page fairly often. I now have a fabulously and fun reason to get back into it.

I've been invited to attend my first fashion show! I'm super excited! This coming Thursday I will have a press pass for the EILEEN FISHER fashion show in Walla Walla, WA. Yep! My teenie, tiny town is hosting a huge event! Hosted by Walla Walla Clothing Co. a well-known clothing boutique that has been around for generations and is known for their quality clothing and service in the community. 
The show will take over part of Main Street Thursday evening. This is the largest fashion show EILEEN FISHER is doing on the west coast, celebrating 30 years of design. We will have food and wine from T. Maccarone's and tipsters from EILEEN FISHER will be there to discuss fashion trends and tips for fall 2014.

Cool Stuff You'll Love-Referral Links and Discounts

Here are some referral links to things I love:

POPSUGAR Must Have Box: A box full of neat stuff for ladies. My favorite scarf came from this box. It's like getting a birthday present every month!I love this box!!

JustFab: Shoes, shoes and shoes and handbags and accessories! I can't wait to order boots from JustFab. I have a friend who has loved every shoe. The prices are just right too-affordable!

The Honest Company: The best diapers, wipes and baby balm for your little one. But, also the best organic and natural cleaning products around. I receive both bundles when it's convenient for my household.

StyleMint: Great basic and not so basic, quality fashion pieces!

Wantable: I haven't gotten my first box yet, but it's on the way. I can't wait for my lounge wear! You can also get a make-up box and an accessories box. All customizable to your taste and preferences. If you don't like it you can return it for a full refund. You can also order it once or subscribe. I got my boxes. They were SO disappointing! I returned them ASAP!

ThredUp: I cleaned out my closet. (I finally let go of those pre-baby jeans that no longer fit my hips and probably never will, some spur of the moment shoe purchases and maternity clothes I really don't need to keep.) I'm anxiously awaiting to see what kind of credit or cash I'll be earning. I'm hoping to order some jeans. I've heard their duds are awesome!

eMeals: Meal planning AND a grocery list AND they have an app...it's amazing! You can choose from many different kinds of plans like diabetic, low calorie, slow cooker. paleo, and many more. I'm signed up for the gluten free plan. You can also find discounts all over the internet.

EMEALS EASY AND DELICIOUS DINNER RECIPES

 Citrus Lane: A surprise box of products for your little one every month. So fun for both baby/toddler and mamma.



*Referral links may provide compensation. I was not paid for this post.

Farewell

A fond farewell readers. I'll make this short and sweet. I've had a great time exploring fashion with all of you. Since I haven't wanted to take an outfit photo in months I figure it's time to say goodbye.


You can still follow me on Instagram and my Facebook page for CCK.

I'm still available for closet organizing and personal shopping at casualchickiki@outlook.com.

au revior, lovelies
