Hey travelers and fashionistas!
How does everyone feel after their weekly workout? Stronger and sexier by the minute, I’m sure….
Well, this week, AGT is travelling to Oregon to visit friends, run a half marathon, explore, and spend some time in wine country… and of course I had to help her pick out some key, fashion forward, outfits for her journey.
Two BIG things AGT needs for her trip: 1) a casual, but still fashion forward outfit, to travel around, during the day, and still be comfortable 2) a wine country outfit for those amazing wine tastings she is going to attend.
Nothing screams comfort and fashionable like my old faithful, a colored (yellow) Converse Chuck Taylor J she’s going to be able to walk all over and still look so cute in a pop of color shoe. The new Rag & Bone distressed cropped boyfriend jeans are a perfect, slouchy, relaxed denim…able to move, and yet still be in style. Next, let’s pair the jeans with the affordable, west coast inspired, California Tee from Topshop. Finally, adding a straw fedora and a cute pair of vintage sunglasses are the perfect combination of comfort, accessories, and fashion for a day of touring down the Oregon Trail J
Nothing is more elegant, sexy, or fashion forward then a little white dress at a wine party. Alice & Olivia’s “Florence” dress is a boho, chic, white peasant dress that is the perfect base piece for a wine tasting… just don’t spill J To stick with my love for spikes, and an edgier piece in every outfit, Juicy Couture’s “Spike Drama Necklace” adds the pop of gold and silver colors to the white dress. It will fall perfectly above the neckline of the dress and be a great way to pull the whole outfit together. A gold Nine West strappy heel will definitely bring out the gold in the necklace and add to the pops of color throughout the outfit. Pairing the outfit with a matching gold Michael Kors clutch is the perfect finish to a divine, wine tasting outfit.
Let’s all wish AGT a fun, exciting trip to the west coast! Don’t forget to follow her on twitter this week to catch all the excitement as she travels! @agirltravels

September has proven to be a very busy month for me between work, sleep, events, and fashion week the past week or so has been a bit of a blur.
In 2010 Saffiyah Rogers and Valerie Morrison launched My Girlfriend’s Closet Boutique. Their cyber retail store provides ensembles that represent every woman’s secret desire to wear contemporary yet trendy fashions from her girlfriend’s closet. Whether it’s those three-inch pumps that little black dress, designer handbag, or fashionable jewelry: there is no need to desire any longer. My Girlfriend’s Closet Boutique fulfills those desires with its New Jersey based online boutique. Log on today to learn more about My Girlfriend’s Closet Boutique www.gfcboutique.com.
Then hit the streets of 5th Avenue and Soho for Fashion’s Night Out. This was my first FNO experience and I have a fab time out with the girls. I got a facial and my make-up done at Origins and my bf arranged for a car to drive the girls and I around city. The first stop was Henri Bendel where we shopped, sipped prosecco courtesy of Cupcake Vineyards, nibbled on chocolate covered pretzels, and ate tequila flavored ice cream. Then it was off to Soho for stops at Steve Madden, H&M, and local boutiques before ending the night with a glass of wine and dinner at B&B Wine Pub.
Did you attend Fashion’s Night Out in your city? How did it go?
Talk to you soon!
Love AGT :)
