A Night Among the Stars: FGI Rising Stars Award Show

Hello hello, my loves, and Happy Snowy Studded Collar Saturday (boy, is that a mouthful…) Yes, I have been absent from the blogosphere for much longer than I would ever have liked, but being a full time student and having such a demanding schedule really takes a toll! But I promise to be a bit more consistent from now on. (:

What better way to get back into the groove of things than to share with you my experience at my very first award show?

IMG_5930I had the pleasure of being invited to and attending the Fashion Group International Rising Stars Award Show in Dallas this past Thursday, and what a show it was! For those who do not know, the Rising Stars Awards are granted to those in the art and fashion industry who have truly made their mark in their area of expertise. These fields include art, photography, jewelry, beauty, interior design, and, of course, fashion. It was so humbling to be in the presence of such hard workers who have really made a name for themselves, and I was honored to be among them that evening.

Along with the award shows, the night also included a series of fashion shows from big-name brands like Macy’s, BCBGeneration, Karen Millen, Nordstrom, Belk, and Aftershock London. Here are some shots from the first show by Macy’s.

IMG_5756

I loved the vibrancy of the collection. In every piece color was incorporated and each caught everyone’s eye. In all honesty, there were some looks that were a little too busy in color for my liking. However, each piece within those ensembles was gorgeous and we must remember that not every outfit is ready to wear off of the runway- some are merely meant to inspire!

IMG_5782

This is my favorite look from the Macy’s show because it displays a cute way to dress up a tee-shirt dress that can also easily be dressed down. The pop of color in the shoes was a great choice by the stylist- not too overwhelming, but easily makes a statement.

 IMG_5795

Next came the BCBGeneration show. This collection was a stark contrast to the previous of Macy’s- here we were shown a gorgeous compilation of spring pieces in neutral tones with some sparse, light additions of color every so often. The color scheme was made of black, blue and white and the outfits themselves were not at all structured. I think that BCBG did a wonderful job of capturing the carefree and loose aesthetic of spring while maintaining a chic and put together collection. Bravo!

IMG_5825 IMG_5807 IMG_5801

The romper on the left is so cute. I love the balance of the full-length sleeves with the shorts. A great piece to own for Spring and an even better addition to purchase for Spring Break! *heart eyes*

More runway shows ensued from brands like Karen Millen…

IMG_5896 IMG_5903 IMG_5902

and BCBGIMG_5939 IMG_5992 IMG_5987 IMG_5958

Can we take a moment to appreciate how flawlessly BCBG combined two of the top trends right now- Leather AND Fringe??? Way to make it to my heart, darlings. *swoon*

IMG_5957

IMG_5954 IMG_5949 IMG_5946 IMG_5945

The awards were given in a staggered manner, so after every few runway shows, a few awards were given. The lovely Mrs. Shay Geyer, IBB  Designer and Good Morning Texas Design Expert was the emcee of the evening and did a fantastic job hosting the night. The first awards were for the Rising Stars in Beauty, Jewelry Design, and Art.

IMG_5850Congratulations to Dr. Nalia Malik, the Rising Star in Beauty…

IMG_5865

Megan Thorne, Rising Star in Jewelry Design…

IMG_5877

And Shayema Rahim, the Rising Star in Art!

I would love to also extend my congratulations to the Rising Star in Photography, Brandon Lyon, and the Rising Star in Interior Design, Brant McFarlain.

Besides seeing the awards and watching the shows, I did have my fair share of fun and met/ reunited with some wonderful people!

IMG_5831

It was such an honor to meet the lovely designer Lucy Dang who was also in the running for a Rising Star award in Fashion. I am in love with her designs and beautiful execution, and she was just as sweet in person as I thought her to be. (:IMG_5926

I also had the honor of meeing co-founder and Editor of DFW Style Daily, Leah Frazier. She was so fun to chat with and it was so great to speak to someone as accomplished as her- I gained quite a few key lessons from her. Go check out her online publication, DFW Style Daily, if you haven’t already!

IMG_5928

Fellow bloggers Cydni of It’s Her Strut, Ty Jones of Words and Wardrobes, and I hit it off and had some fun with the photo booth. (: They’re funny, sweet, and incredibly smart. Go feast your eyes upon their blog goodness!

OK STORY TIME~~

While chatting it up with others in the biz like Alex Young of Eat Style Dallas, photographer extraordinaire Stephanie Drenka of Geek Glam, and Velma Puente of VP Cosmetics, I would see men in police uniforms walking around the venue. My first thought was, “Wow, security is pretty tight around here if they’re mingling among the guests!” Then, later in the evening I saw the two officers looking at me from behind their cop glasses (BTW: the technical term for “cop glasses” is Aviators. Please remember this…) and they stopped me in my tracks. They asked if I was having a good time and I responded saying of course I was! Then they said that after inspecting me for a little bit they were going to have to give me a citation- my first citation!!! “Oh gosh, a citation for what, officers?” I responded with a light laugh and a smile.

“A citation… for being Fashionably Fierce!!!”

No, these were not your every day police officers.

IMG_5993

These were the Fashion Police.

The Fashion Police prowled the venue throughout the evening and gave out “citations” to some of the best dressed of the evening. Needless to say I was quite flattered and was more than excited to receive my first positive citation from the (Fashion) Police.

I even got to take my first “mugshot”!

IMG_6434 IMG_6433

The last award of the evening was the most exciting one- Rising Star in Fashion! The nominees were Lucy Dang, the designer I had the pleasure of meeting earlier that evening; Esé Azénabor, a friend of mine and newly showcased designer at Spring/ Summer New York Fashion Week 2015; and Binzario Couture, who shared a gorgeous bridal collection.

Here are a few shots of the amazing talent. First up- Lucy Dang.IMG_6012 IMG_6014 IMG_6020 IMG_6024 IMG_6025 IMG_6076 IMG_6097

Next we saw Binzario Couture.IMG_6112 IMG_6163 IMG_6191 IMG_6192 IMG_6227 IMG_6233 IMG_6185 IMG_6189 IMG_6237 IMG_6241 IMG_6244

And last, but by no means least, Esé Azénabor

IMG_6250 IMG_6253 IMG_6260 IMG_6267 IMG_6277 IMG_6297 IMG_6319 IMG_6321 IMG_6324 IMG_6328 IMG_6332 IMG_6371 IMG_6399 IMG_6402

After watching all three shows, I think everyone can agree that it was anyone’s game. All three designers were equally deserving of the award as they and their designs were absolutely phenomenal- out of this world!

In the end, Lucy Dang took home the award and now holds the title of Rising Star in Fashion. Congratulations!

After the show’s finale, I met up with dear friend and designer, Allison Mitchell, who looked fabulous as usual. I also got to chat with Esé for a bit afterwards and she, too, looked flawless and was just as warm and bubbly as ever.

IMG_6437IMG_6438Allison and Esé showed at NYFW together, pairing Esé’s clothes with Allison’s purses, and they put on quite a show! Check out both of their websites for more details regarding their work and products.

It was a dream of a night and I still feel humbled to say I laughed and danced among the stars, rising and risen. Thank you, FGI, for such a memorable night!IMG_6441

Happy Homecoming + Style Steal

Hello, my loves, guess who’s back? Yours truly, of course.

For those of you who thought I had slowly faded away from the fashion/ blogging scene, let it be known that I am still quite present and am always on the scene. The month of October was probably my busiest of the academic year thus far (granted that it’s only been three months) and TSC had to take the backseat. Don’t fret, darlings, I am back from my fashion blogger’s coma and going at full speed ahead, so get ready for a fun ride.

This past week was one of Homecoming celebrations- from the Homecomig Dance, to homecoming week, to game this past Friday, everyday had something fun in store. Of course I have to let you in on the part you are all dying to know about- what I wore to the dance! I’m really excited to show you guys because I’m really in love with the ensemble I put together. The best part- it’s a Style Steal!! So, without further ado, let’s get into it!

IMG_2338[1] IMG_2202[1]IMG_2203[1]

Dress: Teeze Me | Necklace and Earrings: Swarovski | Ring: Gifted | Shoes: Steve Madden

Before any of you smarty-pants out there start saying, “You’re wearing a pastel and that’s a spring/summer color! What kind of Fashion Guru are you!” Pipe down little ones, what I’m wearing actually isn’t light enough to be a pastel. This gorgeous ice blue dress with sheer lining, pleating, and tulle underlay made me feel like an absolute princess.

I love the positioning of the waistband that cinches my waist in and the way it meets the point of the triangular sheer material in the center of the dress’s bustier! Claps for Teeze Me, this design is very flattering! It’s a great combination of femininity and class, and then light, mod edge with the sky high strapped platforms from Mr. Madden. (:

IMG_2188[1] IMG_2085[1]

Enjoy the absolutely necessary shoe picture and grand “Hoco Selfie” with me and these beautiful ladies. ❤

Now, do any of you know of a lady by the name of Lupita Nyong’o? Well this wonderful actress has quickly become a style icon and a particularly breathtaking blue Prada dress of hers has become quite iconic as well. If you know the breathtaking garment that I am referring to, then you know that Ms. Nyong’o and I are practically twins. Here comes the Style Steal!

IMG_2241[1]

Lupita’s dress is known far and wide as one of the most amazing to grace the red carpet. With a few modest differences, my dress easily parallels her own and can be viewed as Prada Jr. Lupita’s plunging neck line is mimicked in my own dress but my garment  has a sheer overlay covering my chest (Modest is hottest, ladies). The pleating, though more pronounced in my dress’s skirt, is quite similar to M. Nyong’o’s. Finally, because my dress is short, I opted for drop earrings rather than studs for a healthy and fashionable balance and matching drop-pendant necklace.

Homecoming this year was so much fun, and I couldn’t be happier with the way my look turned out. What did you wear to homecoming? Tell me in the comments below or tweet me pictures @StuddedCollar! As Homecoming season and October have come to a close (Happy November!), I am so happy to welcome the cool weather and the holiday season. I just know that this will be quite a fun, fabulous, and fashionable one. I’ve got some fun in store for you guys, and would love to hear your ideas for posts! Comment some ideas or tweet me, reach me on Facebook, Instagram, you know the drill… (: Well, let the holiday fun begin! Keep smiling, beauties. Until next time…

Homecoming Trends 2014 ft. Tootsies

Hello, darlings, Kay B here! I hope you’re all doing well today. (:

As you all may or may not know, I’ve collaborated with Tootsies for an exciting project and I’m so excited to release it to you all right now! I came up with four gorgeous looks showing off different styles using Tootsies’ latest merchandise for…. Homecoming!

For those who don’t know, Tootsies is a gorgeous, high-end, designer clothing store specializing in clothing, jewelry, shoes, and accessories. They have the hottest trends and the best in-store consultants to help make your shopping experience the absolute best. I’m so excited to share these looks with you and I know you must be anxious to see them, so without further ado, let’s get started!

1. Classic

Classic_2 Classic_3 Classic_5
Classic_7IMG_0049 IMG_0052 IMG_0053 IMG_0055 Classic_6

Dress: Alice and Olivia | Shoes: LK Bennett | Necklace: Ziio | Earrings: Noir | Purse: Franchi

Black and white is a classic, timeless combination when it comes to anything, especially apparel. Instead of going for the “Classic Little Black Dress,” I chose the Little White Dress (with some black detailing). The silhouette of this dress is extremely flattering- the seam right under the bust along with black, lace, triangular cutouts on the side will make your waist appear smaller. I think one of my favorite parts is the high neckline; it allowed me to wear the gorgeous statement necklace by Ziio. Because the ensemble is black and white, I wanted to have some fun with the jewelry, so though this necklace has a tribal feel to it, it’s not too loud and the colors marry gorgeously. I love mixing styles to form a collective theme!

P.S- can we just take a moment to fawn over those shoes? There are no words besides fabulous and flawless to describe these beauties.

2. Glam

Glam 1Glam 3 Glam 4 Glam 5IMG_0093 IMG_0087 IMG_0083 IMG_0065 Glam 6

Dress: Parker | Shoes: Pelle Moda | Necklace: Lisa Freede | Earrings: Noir | Purse: Franchi

Now, this look is probably the most fun of the four! I honestly wouldn’t typically go for such a bold look, but once I put it together, I felt so fun and ready to dance the night away. This sequin covered dress really sets itself apart from all others with its symmetrical pattern, flattering cut, and the fact that it is NOT ITCHY. Sequin dresses are notorious for being itchy, but I felt so comfortable. I really like that the dress isn’t extremely short because the sequins and deep-v neckline are already speaking volumes. Remember that if you want a totally bedazzled dress- let it hit you right above your knee or 1.5 inches above- you want to look classy and glamorous!

3. Edgy

Edgy 1

Edgy 2 Edgy 3 Edgy 4IMG_0103 IMG_0102 IMG_0095 IMG_0115Edgy 5

Dress: Alexis | Shoes: Stuart Weitzman | Earrings: Robert Lee Morris | Cuff: Pilar Olavem | Purse: Franchi

When most people think of an “edgy” style, leather, gold studs, chains, and moto jackets come to mind. However, you can look edgy, classy and formal without all the biker gear! It’s all in the details, darling, because they add up. I went for an all black ensemble with a pop of red in this gorgeous Franchi clutch. I love the gold studs on the clasp that add just enough dimension without overwhelming the whole look. As much as I love this clutch, my favorite aspect of this outfit is the fringe on this flawless Alexis dress. It’s different, adds movement to the straight silhouette, and definitely adds edge without losing any femininity. You see? This outfit is actually pretty simple, but the black, fringe, and red clutch with gold detailing are all you need to rock your Homecoming.

4. Surprise…

Alright. I only intended to make 3 looks for you all, but that’s no fun, right? So I have a fourth “surprise” look to share with you guys….

A jumpsuit!

Surprise 1 Surprise 2 Surprise 3 Surprise 4 Surprise 6IMG_0104 IMG_0102 IMG_0115 IMG_0124 Surprise 5

Jumpsuit: Black Halo | Shoes: Stuart Weitzman | Earrings: Claudia Lobao | Cuff: Pilar Olavem | Purse: Whiting Davis

I know. Most- if not all- of you were expecting to see an out of this world dress, a skirt and top combo, or even a maxi dress. A pantsuit? What is this? Well, darlings, it’s fashion, the unexpected, it’s redefining and it’s style. You do not have to wear a dress to homecoming, and you can look just as beautiful, just as feminine, and just as flawless in a gorgeous, well tailored pantsuit like this one. Leave a comment down below and tell me what you think about wearing a pantsuit to Homecoming!

I can not stress how important it is to dress so that your beautiful body is done justice and is well flattered, and in this jumpsuit that was not an issue.  The seam below the chest is well placed and makes my waist narrower and the wide pant leg makes me appear taller and smaller up top. I love the small v cutout along the neckline adding a feminine touch as well as dimension. What I found really unique were the front pockets! Rather than being on the sides which would make my hips look bulky, they were placed at the front of the suit- very well thought out. I went for gold details to compliment this all black ensemble. It makes the outfit look warmer as opposed to silver which would give off a cold vibe.

Team 2 Team

I can’t sign off without giving the most massive thank you to my dear friend and talented photographer  for this shoot, Allie Burns. She did an absolutely amazing job with the shoot and delivered photos beyond my expectations. She’s incredibly talented, and if you are looking for a photographer in the Dallas area, contact her!

Allie Burns, photographer: allie.b123@att.net

A huge thank you to Tootsies as well! I felt like a princess and had an amazing time putting together Homecoming looks for you. I feel so blessed to have received the opportunity to partner with you and look forward to future projects!

As for you darlings, thank you for your immense support. You’ve finally seen the face behind The Studded Collar! Now you know that I am not a robot, but rather a teenage girl with a passion for fashion, writing, and Starbucks.  Now, I want to hear what you have to say about the looks I created! Tell me in the comments and mention which one is your favorite! Also, follow me on Twitter (@StuddedCollar), Instagram (@StuddedCollar) and like my Facebook page (The Studded Collar).

Summertime Blues

Happy Saturday, everyone!

As promised, I have a new post today for you guys, and it’s the classic Outfit of the Day post. I just finished my first week of my junior year and, honestly, I loved it! The work load has increased, of course, but it was so great to catch up with my friends, meet all my new teachers, and jump right into all the fun the year has in store.

That work load I mentioned has me confined to my room doing homework in my oh, so fashionable Nike shorts and t-shirt, missing the days of summertime freedom. Although I’m loving the year so far, I am feeling a little blue about summer break being over. That said, here is a blue Outfit of the Day throwback to my last day of summer!

IMG_0578

Top: Forever 21

Skirt: Macy’s

Bracelet: Charming Charlie

IMG_0583 IMG_0574

I love this bangle bracelet from Charming Charlie. The blue gems accented with gold wiring work beautifully together, and I love that I can wear this bracelet higher on my arm than the typical bracelet or bangle. It adds a simple, subtle, yet unique twist.

IMG_0581

I love this maxi skirt because it’s definitely different from your basic skirt. First, the blue lace overlay is gorgeous with pink and red flowers thrown into the mix. The floral lace with a unique color theme is feminine and fun. Secondly, the fact that the lace overlay is of a maxi cut while the skirt underneath is short so unique! It makes the skirt more casual and makes your legs appear longer as opposed to a solid colored, single-material maxi skirt.

IMG_0579

From the front, this top is a basic cream tee with a little frocket. Then, you take a look at the back and it’s totally made of lace! As you can tell, I really like lace, and I love the variety in this outfit. Do note that it’s possible to have one print and vary its design in different pieces like I did here: I wore a lace skirt and lace backed top, but the laces are in slightly different patterns and colors. Both items still look put-together and simple! Depending on how you style patterns, you can wear any without it looking too busy. (:

I hope you are all enjoying your school year so far, and if you are on a holiday break, then I hope you are treasuring every moment! I may have the summer blues now, but I am honestly so excited for what’s to come this school year. (PS- Check out my last post to see how I prepared for the start of school!) Remember to keep those positive vibes and be the best you possible. (:

Back to School Haul!

Hello, friends!

It’s that time of year again… that time that gives us a mixed stew of feelings. You guessed it, folks-

Back. To. School.

But hey, let’s not think of it as the end, but rather, the beginning of an exciting new season! With this exciting new season comes new school supplies, and I am excited to share with you my Back to School Haul!

IMG_0553

For those of you who don’t know, I attend a school that requires us to wear uniforms, so I doubt you want to see the slew of Uber-cute plaid skirts and button downs I bought. Instead, I’ll be showing you some cute supplies I bought to be 100% ready for the new year!

IMG_0554

First, I bought this bright pink backpack by JanSport from Academy. I have the same one in a light blue color, but I wanted another one for different days in the week because I have different classes every other day. I really love this color- it’s so fun and pink is my absolute favorite color- and JanSport backpacks are so durable and I can trust it to last throughout the entire year and hold all my books unfailingly (and I have a LOT).

IMG_0560

Next, I have these two 1.5″ binders: One for A day and one for B day. I bought these babies from Target, and as soon as I laid eyes on them, I had to have them. Not only are they designed beautifully, but they are also incredibly durable, which is a winning combination in my book! These solid binders will definitely hold all my folders and papers while I remain stylishly organized. (:

IMG_0566

Also from Target are these super cute notebooks by Five Star. I have always bought Five Star notebooks, but in solid colors. My dad actually pointed the patterned books out to me, and I decided to switch up my selection this year. There were so many fun pattern options and I selected these nine for my nine classes.

IMG_0567

These three notebooks are my favorite ones. Which notebooks do you like best? Tell me in the comments below!

IMG_0564

I stopped by Barnes and Noble and picked up a few books. These are required for my English class, but they’re all so good, so I thought I’d share them with you all too!

I bought “The Great Gatsby,” “The House on Mango Street,” “A Raisin in the Sun,” “Their Eyes Were Watching God,” “The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn,” and The Crucible.

IMG_0565

Tell me below if you’ve read any of these books, which of these you like best, or any great book suggestions you may have!

IMG_0561

This was probably one of my favorite Back To School purchases- a journal by Tricoastal Designs. They have some really cute journals in various designs that I recommend you take a look at! I take French and am a huge fashion lover ((obviously)), so when I saw this journal, I thought it to be a match destined by God. Honestly though, there’s even a quote I love by the lovely Audrey Hepburn on the front and back, “Some people dream of having a big swimming pool. With me, it’s closets.” ❤

IMG_0563

I am super excited about this purchase for school. It’s totally original and I honestly think I’ll stand out in the classroom with these supplies. I’m so psyched to share that I bought some awesome graph paper AND… wait for it… college-ruled notebook paper. The color really pops, but the simplicity is so chic! I’m really trying to contain my excitement, but I cannot wait to flaunt this at school.

IMG_0571

I bought some sticker labels to label my notebooks, binders, books, etc. I also bought reinforcement labels to strengthen my folders, flashcards for studying, and colored sticker flags for organization. Exciting stuff, I know.

IMG_0570

Finally, I bought some writing and coloring utensils! You can’t start school without them, but you can definitely finish the year with about two. (I know this happens to all of us, let’s be real…) I got some basic black and red pens– I hate blue pens, so I never buy them, ha! – Some number 2 pencils, a pencil sharpener, some highlighters, Crayola markers (because I am a kindergartener), and gold Sharpies. I have all the basic Sharpie colors, but not the metallic gold, so I just had to buy them! Plus, they show up better on darker surfaces, which is super helpful.

That is it for my Back to School Haul! I hope you enjoyed seeing what I bought for the new school year and that if you’re still prepping to resume school, then it gave you some ideas of what to get. I really like all the items I bought, I think they are so cute and portray my style really well- that’s something I love because I wear a uniform. I wish you all a great school year no matter what grade you are starting and keep those positive vibes flowing- you’ll be unstoppable!

P.S- I actually start school tomorrow, so that means you can start looking out for a new post from me every Saturday! I’ll do my very best to post then, and I may do some random posts so keep checking in! I love you all and let’s have a great new school year! ❤

Stay Fab,

Kay B xx

The “S” Word

Back to School Sign

Hello, my darlings,

Yes, as you all know, it’s that time of year again. The summer chapter has come to an end and it is time for the “S” word to re-enter our vocabulary.

That’s right- School.

With the return of School, especially the High kind, comes an incredibly busy schedule. So, unfortunately, I won’t be posting as frequently in the week. Never fear, my lovely readers, for I have a solution!

Now, I have a set schedule for when I will be posting. You can expect a new article from me on Saturdays. You can call them your “Studded Collar Saturdays.” It has a nice ring to it. (: Of course, I may have some quick surprise posts in the middle of the week, so still check in often.

I have some Back to School posts lined up for you guys and some more exciting projects coming this Fall, and I am so thrilled to share them with you all soon! As we bid summer goodbye, we say hello to a bright, new season. Don’t grieve the ending, but celebrate this new beginning! Until next time, lovies…

Stay Fab,

Kay B xx

Flower Child

Good morning darlings, and Happy Tuesday!

IMG_9789

Top: Delia’s

Skirt: Forever 21

Belt: Cotton On

Sandals: Target

Bracelet: Nordstrom

Scrunchie: Forever 21

Yesterday I had a few errands to run and wanted a casual yet light and girly look. I opted for my new favorite floral skater skirt and a light scoop neck “Awkward” Tee. I tucked my top into my skirt and after looking in the mirror was happy with how it turned out.. but my outfit needed a kick.

IMG_9830

My skirt is a little high-waisted, and my waist is pretty small, so what better way to define and cinch in my waist than with an edgy belt? I love the gold studs on this belt. It adds some edge to an otherwise flirty-girly outfit (despite the immense amount of black.) The leather belt adds definition and a little something extra to the outfit.

IMG_9832 IMG_9831

Since I was on my feet quite a bit yesterday, I wanted to be comfortable so I wore my go-to black, strappy sandals. I have worn these so much this summer, I’m surprised I haven’t acquired a tan resembling the sandal straps yet!

IMG_9834

Because my outfit was predominantly black, I wanted to add some color without clashing with the flower colors. I chose this woven, blue, jeweled bracelet from Nordstrom. I really love the color of this bracelet and the simple gold, jeweled dome in the center. It’s simple and captivating.

IMG_9828 IMG_9827

If the floral skirt wasn’t enough, well say hello to my flower power scrunchie. Yes, scrunchies are back, and I wear them proudly. It was way too hot for me to wear my hear down (my hair is short, but it’s so dark and thick and it’s like wearing a woolly blanket on your head…) and I didn’t want to do anything elaborate to my hair, so I just braided my bangs straight back and held my ponytail with this scrunchie!IMG_9812

IMG_9866 IMG_9808

So you probably notice a lot of florals in my outfit, but you should know that floral prints are my favorite of all prints! They can translate into any season, and they can be styled in many different ways! Florals don’t always have to be girly, but you can definitely call me a somewhat girly Flower Child.

IMG_9810

Until next time, sunshines,

Stay Fab,

Kay B xx
