#WhyNFW 2016: Fashion Forward Fund Gala

This year's Nashville Fashion Week was absolutely wonderful. The credit must be given to all of the dedicated staff, designers, retailers, volunteers, photographers, videographers, models, hair & makeup artists, event planners, writers, bloggers, stylists, directors and producers who made this week possible. Thank you to everyone I partnered with who made each night so very special. I'm so humbled by all the readers and followers who I had the chance to meet. Thank you so much for your support. I've got heart eyes for you, Nashville! Heart eyes!

Tonight's gala will take place at OZ Arts Nashville and feature Mayor Megan Barry, singer-songwriter Holly Williams, and designer Julianna Bass. I'm so excited to be wearing this gorgeous sequined jumpsuit from The Showroom Nashville with mirrored belt. The Showroom is my favorite place to grab a statement piece for formal events. All rentable, all affordable! I topped off this look with simple sandals and a mirrored sequin bag from Stacey Rhodes Boutique.

#WhyNFW 2016: City Lights - Ready-to-Wear Runway Show

This week just keeps getting better and better! What a joy it's been to watch our city come together and connect over the beauty of fashion. You know tonight's Ready-to-Wear Runway Show is going to be epic, and I can't wait to see everyone's beautiful faces. How did this week go by so fast? The fourth night of Nashville Fashion Week will be at the Legislative Plaza. Designers will include Lagi Nadeau, Megan Huntz, Oberima Afriyie, Eleventy and Julianna Bass.

I am overjoyed about tonight. For the second year in a row, I'll be wearing a rhinestone duster from one of my favorite legendary designers...Manuel. It's such an honor to represent him and his remarkable career for the final night of runway shows for 2016's Nashville Fashion Week. I'm so thankful for Manuel and his team's generosity and support over the years. I topped off this look with a simple nude bag from Stacey Rhodes Boutique and a slinky suede midi dress.
