Fashion Night Out, CT Style

Ya'll know that I have long been a believer that fashion and decor are closely linked together. The runway not only dictates fashion trends but also guides how colors, fabrics and styles will transcend into the home.  (Recall my guest post on little black door here...)
Well, last Thursday night, the hippest boutiques in my area of Connecticut celebrated in style with "Fashion's Night Out." They hosted guests for a night of fun, fancy drinks and a glimpse into what's in store for fall's styles.  
I attended the Kimberly Boutique fashion show and let me tellya...the atmosphere was as electric as their invite.  They had a dee jay.  They served tasty drinks in fancy martini glasses.  The seating was standing room only (does that  even make sense?  Let's just say--it was packed!)
Susan from Sight Eyewear
 The show debuted with this Tracy Reese Peplum Coat. What a stunner!!!  I had some fun and paired some interior views  that would match these fall clothes. 
I found the below room from Elle Decor on my favorite site Fashion Decor.  They described the interior as "smart, edgy and whimsical" at the same time.  I think this could be used to describe this Tracy Reese coat as well.

 Here are some other photos from the show along with my room pairings.  I'd describe this next look as refined, classic and timeless.   So I selected a modern yet classic room that spoke the same Tres chic!

Love these color choices for fall.  These are vibrant and hip.  The green and yellow had a bit of prepster to it.  Kimberly is fabulous for selecting styles that reflect the times with fun and energy

Kimberly Boutique partnered with another wonderful boutique in West Hartford center called Sight Eyewear which accessorized some of the models in the show with hip frames.

Many of Kimberly's clients were selected to be the models in the fashion show.  They had so much fun and their families turned out to cheer them on. 

Think geommetrical in wardrobe and home...

Very clever post. Thoroughly enjoyed seeing the fashion alone side of the interiors.
Would you believe I just GAVE AWAY (goodwill) a dress that I've had for years that was identical to the blue/black/white geometrical wrap!!!!! How, how STUPID!!!!!

What a fun night! Love the fashion/home tie in. So true. And really we just keep going round and round and round ... and it is so fun to see things again ... new and fresh as if we've never seen them before! xo
