Style It Saturday With Elena Hakola: Charlotte Fashion Week


Designer Elena Hakola kicked off Charlotte Fashion Week on the Charlotte Seen Runway with crowd pleasing selections from her latest line.

The show started with this show stopper!

Colors of the Ukrainian Flag mixed with her play on triangles left the crowd in awe.


Her use color pops were striking against the steel grays and black and white outfits.

Cherry Reds and Fuchsia contrasted nicely with jewel tones.


Deep, rich jewel tones made for some of my favorite outfits. I tend to gravitate to them.


Dramatic collars were a major part of this line.

Metallics and jewel tones supplied the perfect amount of drama for these looks.


Elena had several playful outfits in her line.

This red glove made an appearance in the front and the back of this dress.

The Rebellious Nun

Business in the front, party in the back.

The lace veil on a ball cap was distinctive enough. The red roses as she turned around was a unique surprise.

The ‘ripped’ effect continued to the back of this classic piece.


The most dramatic piece in this look gained a lot of praise from the audience.

It was inspired by Russian/ Ukrainian fairytale “Princess-Frog” About witched princess turned into frog. She had to travel and hide to be found.

Look closely as she walks away. Yes, that’s a backpack!

My absolute favorite piece of the line is one I can see myself wearing.

I was enthralled with the suspenders holding up draped fabric over the skirt.

Elena Hakola has an extensive background in art and design. I’ve been a fan of her designs and artwork for several years.

The Moscow Born designer has been a major supporter of Ukraine.

Thank you Elena for your incredible designs and thank you for your huge heart.


Style It Saturday With Michael Kors: Florals? For Spring? Groundbreaking…


Miranda Priestly wasn’t impressed with florals for Spring. Perhaps if she was wearing Michael Kors instead of Prada she would change her mind!

This outfit was put together by my favorite SA Kristen and I can picture her wearing it!

The star of the outfit is this Floral Georgette Tiered Cascade Ruffle Skirt.

She added the coordinating Floral Logo Cotton Jersey T Shirt.

The Denim Anorak in Evergreen provides the perfect contrast for the florals.

Adding the Olympia Canvas and Leather Trainer gives the outfit a causal feel.

This gorgeous Carine Small Pebbled Leather Satchel in Pink Grapefruit makes the coral accents in the skirt pop.

Groundbreaking or not, I think Miranda would approve of this outfit.

Style It Saturday With boohoo: Keeping Up With Kourtney


This week boohoo, the trendy, online clothing store, dropped its collection by Kourtney Kardashian Barker.

With a wide array of fashion choices, Kourtney has something for everyone.

Dresses….sexy or casual there’s quite a selection.

There are stylish coats and jackets for every occasion.

These aren’t your mothers pantsuits! Unless your mother is Kris Jenner!

Fun Street-ware pieces are combined with Koutney’s signature look of causal menswear.

The best part of this collection is she really thought of everyone. Sizing starts at 2 and goes up to 4X on most pieces.

She’s not often thought of as the most fashionable of the sisters. And that’s ok. She has her own style that fits her personality. Comfortable while still stylish.

Style It Saturday With SHEIN: Orange You Green With Envy


Summer is slowly fading into Fall.

But the Summer vibe is still vibing strong with this color blocked outfit from SHEIN.

I love this sweater dress because of the detail at the bottom.

Add this fun fringed Bag for a pop of contrasting color.

Tie the outfit together with these color blocked booties!

Hang onto Summer a little longer with this outfit from SHEIN!

Finish with a pop of color. This Brahmin Small Carla Handbag in Flame mimics the gorgeous Autumn leaves I can’t wait to see.
