Simon Fashion Now: Before The Runway

7 For All Mankind
On Wednesday, September 5, 2012, a select group of bloggers were invited to attend an exclusive sneak peek of the season's most popular fall trends and styles before they hit the runway during the Houston Galleria's most exciting fashion show, Simon Fashion Now. The event was held in the Monarch Room of the Westin Galleria, on the 24th floor, and was hosted by Jacque Ellis of the Simon Property Group. The evening featured Houston fashion stylist Leslie Rivas, who styles all the Simon Fashion Now looks, offering tips and trends. Guests enjoyed complimentary bites and champagne, as well as received VIP swag bags upon their departure. The VIP swag bags featured retailer goodies, a full-size O.P.I. nail lacquer in "Kiss Me On My Tulips," a wine bottle stopper, {my absolute favorite} a complimentary "Preferred Pass" to the Houston Fine Art Fair, and a printed-pamphlet schedule of the Simon Fashion Now festivities from September 6-8.

The five main fall trends that will be showcased for Simon Fashion Now included: fur, printed-skinny bottoms [see above], animal prints, blues [see below], and greens.

Ann Taylor's Petite Metropolitan Shift Dress ($138)

Here's a few images from the #BeforeTheRunway event from fellow Houston Fashion Bloggers Veronika, Imani, Vanessa, Taylor, Rocquelle, and the ladies from Girl Around Town. I saved the best for last, or at least my favorite ensemble.

Hello Cosmo!

... And goodbye Marie Claire.

Marie Claire editor-in-chief, Joanna Coles will be replacing Kate White as editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan on Monday, September 10, 2012, as White has decided to shift her focus onto her writing and motivational speaking career.

Anne Fulenwider, who had been editor-in-chief of Brides, will be replacing Coles as the editor-in-chief of the U.S. edition of Marie Claire.

According to Hearst Magazines' president David Carey, Cosmopolitan is the world's largest women's magazine and the biggest-selling monthly magazine on U.S. newsstands. But, not to worry, White will still remain an adviser to Hearst Magazines.

Also, fans of White can expect a fabulous new career book that will be coming out Tuesday, September 18, 2012, titled "I Shouldn't Be Telling You This: Success Secrets Every Gutsy Girl Should Know."
