It’s officially one of my favorite weeks of the year! Style Week Los Angeles officially kicked off this past Sunday. And while regretably I was unable to attend opening night, I was able to go to last nights shows! And I must say I was a little upset that this year I was not approved for a press pass. I didn’t even get a “sorry you’re not cool enough” letter. I get that they’re busy but sheesh. Thank goodness my best friend Wade had it within his heart and his network to get me in. Thanks Wade!

Despite starting fashionably late. The festivities were everything I had hoped they would be. Granted the ready to wear collection was ok, it was Michael Costello and Walter Mendez’s presentation that made my jaw drop to the floor. I am soo proud to see how quickly Costello’s star is rising! Granted I don’t know him personally, but watching his shows last year and how much recognition he has gained in the past year by celebrities and style icons is nothing short of inspiring. And then there’s Walter Mendez. I consider Walter Mendez and Michael Costello the Ben Affleck, Matt Damon of the fashion world. I always feel like they have each other’s back, and are the epitome of a healthy bromance. Together they’re an unstoppable duo. While Costello has his signature attention to detail in the dramatic silhouette, Mendez is about sophisticated drama. And if you’ve read my previous posts about runway shows, I love me some drama on the runway. The only place drama should be.

Overall, Style Week was every thing I hoped it would be. Full of fashion and fun. I can’t wait to see what Betsey Johnson brings to the runway tomorrow! Whether or not I’ll be in attendance is still a question seeing as how I’m sure security will be flipping out about that show more than they do a flash on a camera.
