Deb Fashion

One thing that I was blessed with, that I don't think a lot of people have, is an AMAZING set of neighbors! I have lived in the same house since the summer after I was in 3rd grade and ever since I moved in we have been as close as family! My neighbor, and one of my best friends, Melissa texted me the other night because she has the privilege of being a debutante this year! Along with the real shindig, there are many parties that occur during the process of "announcing yourself to society" and her first one was on Friday so she asked me to do her hair!
I was so excited because A. I love fixing peoples hair, and B. I love hanging out with Melissa! What we decided to do with her hair was curl it with a straightener and make it wavy and fun, and then put it half up with the front pinned back. Another added twist (pun intended) was taking a small section of hair and wrapping it around the rubberband so it looked more elegant! She looked GORGEOUS! (and can I just add, gentlemen, that this lady is single and DEFINITELY a keeper)
Along side her chic hair-do Melissa wore a black tank-top dress that had a ruffled bottom, a mint green necklace with a gold chain, a cream colored flower ring, pearl earrings, a gold chain bracelet with a pearl on it, and nude pumps! Once the whole outfit came together it looked SO cute! I wanted to steal it...if only I had her mile long legs too!

How pretty is that!? The combination of black with pale and nude colors is BEYOND stylish. I had so much fun catching up with one of my best friends and helping her primp for her first deb party! I hope that all of you had a fantastic weekend! Stay tuned for more posts coming soon...

BREAKING NEWS: PPT's Author on Fashion Segment!

WOW! What an experience. About a week ago my sister and I were asked to model some clothes for Celebrity Looks on a College Budget for Charlottes Fox News Rising and I was SO excited! How many people get this opportunity?? So after I immediately said yes, Bridgette, the head of Charlotte Style Magazine, assigned a boutique for me to go to where I had to bring in a celebrity look, and then find an ensemble that looked similar to that celebrities look but cost a lot cheaper! The look that I chose was Kim Kardashians look during fashion week. She wore a silk shirt dress, curled her hair, and accentuated her waist with a belt. This is KK's look...
Super chic right!? Well my look was a little different! Instead of a dark green I chose an army green romper designed by Charlie Jade from an adorable boutique called The Pink Hanger that already had a silk belt attached, but still had the deep V-neckline and mid length sleeves. My sister Laura decided to model a chic one-sleeve dress that resembled a Stella McCartney gown that Eva Mendes wore to The Met Gala. Laura's look was from a boutique called Petal and was designed by T Bags. Laura chose to make her look more funky, casual and school appropriate. Here is the Eva Medenz look...
After arriving at the news headquarters we walked into the dressing room and touched up our makeup and dressed in our ensembles. The minute the assistant walked into the room to call us to the set my heart started pounding in my chest. I know that local news isn't a big deal, but to me it seemed like I was about to star on American Idol or something! I was nervous! We walked onto the set, lined up in order and the producer began to count down... 
Then one by one we got to go up on stage and model our look while Bridgette and the anchor talked about who designed it, how it resembled the celebrities look, and how that look applied to college fashion. I had a BLAST! It was SO much fun! Here are some pictures from our exhilarating experience...
And if the pictures aren't enough, check out the video that the Foxs News posted on their website!
I still can't believe that I got to be featured on the news. Not only was this exciting because it was something new and different, but wearing these chic clothes made it even more up my ally! It's something that I am DEFINITELY always going to remember! There is even more exciting news coming later in the week, make sure you stay tuned for that! Hope everyone is having a fantastic Wednesday! And (cue news broadcaster voice) that's all we have for today ladies and gentlemen...

importune inspiration and EXCITEMENT

Lately I have been SO busy. My family took a trip to Florida and I didn't even get one opportunity to update PPT because we were just going going going! I apologize for the infrequent posts. I promise that I will eventually get back to updating the blog almost everyday! In other news, tomorrow is a
day for me! I am not going to tell you exactly what is going on, but MAKE SURE you tune in tomorrow night to get the low down! But while I am still regrouping and preparing for my big day tomorrow, I am going to leave you with what is hopefully the last post about summer inspiration! YAY! With school starting in a couple weeks I plan to gradually move on to fashion for Fall, my favorite season!
But while the air remains humid and we are all still sitting in the 100 degree weather feeling sticky and looking exceptionally great (cue sarcasm) here are some ideas, and reminders, about what to wear that my photographer Allison picked out!...
Not only do you need a chic ensemble for summer, but a hairstyle that keeps you from burning up isn't a bad idea either! Check out how adorable these are...
These items and up-do's help you stay cool, classy and comfortable during hot summer weather! If you try one of these styles or hairstyles out and want to show readers how flawlessly you rocked it, then send a picture to PPT and it will be reposted on this blog! Can't wait to share with ya'll tomorrow!...
