Austin Fashion Week #AFW in Jarlo.
finally. the opportunity to wear this beauty (insert happy dance)! Jarlo London is a brand you want to wear when you want to stand out (not a known US brand) and be extra (in a super classy way). basically, it’s red carpet material. these types of dresses do not need any kind of jewelry — if you have to wear any, keep it very minimal with a pair of studs, that’s all that is needed because the dress stands out on its own. i wanted a Jarlo dress for quite some time now and waited for a sale on top of a sale to purchase one; not even knowing when i would get to wear it. sometimes i do this just in case something pops up so that i’m not scrambling to find something to wear because we all know how that never works out! Jarlo embodies lace overlays, ruffles, the classy bardot necklines… it has my name written all over it and there isn’t one design i don’t want in my closet. it was so appropriate for #AFW (recap of Thursday night after the jump) and the dress received tons of compliments; even from men. how can it not?! the dress is extremely well made, i’d almost say it's hefty in a good way. it features a built in bra (i feel all dresses should!!), you get what you pay for and even at regular price it’s a solid choice.
side ramblings: the @nordstromatx x @fashionx.co x @tkckindness fashion show to kick off #AFW was a huge success! it was so fun to hang out with some peers who i consider big timers and doing huge things. what an honor. my parents came out that night and they kept telling their friends about it. especially my dad, haha can you imagine a man showing all his male friends the clip of his (34-YR OLD) daughter walking in a fashion show? seriously. the cutest thing ever. my dad is obviously proud of me because let me tell you, the man is not impressed by much. unless you’re a Tesla. haha. gearing up for another busy week, i have some pretty exciting things coming up so i’ll see ya next time xx.
