About Business

Tonight, I'm attending an event at my Alma mater, the Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising (FIDM) in downtown Los Angeles. The event is a Red Carpet Trend and Fashion Show with Nick Verreos of Nikolaki Designs and Project Runway: Under the Gunn. Which by the way, is filmed on the FIDM campus. In addition to watching a fashion show, guests will be greeted with a champagne reception. I have attended events at FIDM in the past, since becoming a fashion writer, and they are always done to the utmost in style and sophistication.

The challenge has always been - Choosing what to wear to such an event where I'm expected to look my best, and yet remembering, this is about business, and I'll want to be comfortable. In 2008, I usually carried a messenger bag that housed a recorder and pads of paper and pens. Today, with the latest in technology, I no longer have to worry about carrying such items. Now in their place is my trusty Samsung Tablet that's dressed in a colorful Vera Bradley cover. Using my tablet cover as my style inspiration, I chose today's look as an option to what I might wear this evening.


Today's Look: Dress-from Anthropologie, Coat-Vera Wang for Kohl's, Shoes by Isaac, Footless tights from Target, Necklace from Francesca's Collection, Tablet Cover from Vera Bradley.







As with any lover of fashion, I'll probably change my look several times before heading to the event. What will the final result be? Stay connected to see the post from the evening. Also, follow on Instagram for more pictures from tonight{wink}

  3. Oh Glenda! You look fabulous! I wouldn't change a thing! It won't surprise you to know I'm a big, big fan of Project Runway, and to learn about a new reality series with Tim Gunn at the helm is exciting for me. We don't get Bravo, but hopefully we can download the show in the future! Forget shopping together Glenda...I want you to take me under your wing and give me a tour of FIDM.

  17. Excellent outfit. The green dress is stellar and the bag is quite yummy. This is a great treat for me as I live in the beachside style wasteland of San Diego. I thought about trying to do a street style blog for awhile until I noticed that about half the people around here wear gym clothes and the rest look like they're on their way to summer camp for adults! Keep up the good work!

  19. I adore this look. Beautiful. If I could, I would copy it. How about you swapping this dress and coat for my black and white sweater? (Hmm no... I need to throw in a bit more of course.)
    Hahaha, we probably would both look ridiculous as we are so different.
