We arrived fashionably late to the grand opening of Frida and it. Was. Packed. A Mariachi band played outside of the store while a group of curious and trés chic fashionistas filtered in and out of the store, some leaving with Frida’s signature unibrow drawn in on their foreheads. If there were enough room to sit and chat, it would have been an unbelievably grand party but everyone dutifully came in, browsed the Frida-inspired wears and congratulated Rachel, owner of Frida (a

We also must thank the volunteers – the day played o
After stuffing 250 gift bags for FashionSpeak, we sure can’t get this unique event, focusing on the business of fashion, off of our minds and we have tons of questions popping into our brains at all times. Is the FashionSpeak checklist updated? Do we have every last thing we need to make for a great day? What are we going to wear? Heels or flats? (Flats, of course, but heels for the reception.)

It was all pretty fabulous and once the fashio
The Fashion Panel for Michigan Fashion Week took place last night at the Baronette Renaissance Hotel (so chic) in Novi and it was fash-tastic.
