First up, if you can remember back to February of this year, I (the Phashionizta) was named as one of six top stylist in Arizona for 2017 by Phoenix Fashion Week! What did that mean? Well, I was able to put together an entire Runway show based on a spring trend of my choice. I chose the Travelers (given my love of traveling) trend and put together 12 full menswear looks that rocked the runway in late March. If you missed the show and our recap, you can read all about it here Travelers Runway. In addition, I was fortunate enough to have the whole team with me for the show: Beauty Editor Jalia working backstage on makeup and Menswear Contributor Letarius killing the runway in all black.
Next up, we have to give a HUGE shout out to our Beauty Editor Jalia for a major win on the national level. She recently found out she is a FINALIST for Makeup Artist of the Year presented by NAHA (North American Hairstyling Awards). This organization awards the top beauty awards in the industry to finalists across the nation. Our very own Jalia is one of five that was selected as a finalist and the only makeup artist selected in Arizona!
No we still aren’t done with the wins. Next up, we have both Jalia and I nominated by the FAB Awards for Makeup Artist of the Year and Stylist of the Year! This Arizona based award show took place this past Sunday in Scottsdale, AZ. Both categories were full of competitive talent! To my complete surprise I came away with the trophy for Stylist of the Year! I’ll be sharing pics of the trophy in our next Newsletter June 1, so make sure to sign up for FREE with just your email 🙂 Of course, I did want to share with you the outfit that I wore for the evening (which I now firmly believe is responsible for the win lol).
This navy dress from Fashionnova I bought awhile ago was perfect the occasion (except I underestimated how high the thigh slit was… oops). I’ve also been trying to find these gold strappy heels everywhere and luckily I found them a few hours before this event, but you can find a similar pair here: LolaShoetique . My other good luck charm is definitely this studded clutch from Nasty Gal that my best friend Joanna picked out for me this past Christmas (you did good girl!)
We are so excited for these wins as well as having all of our readers support through the years! We love you and can’t wait to share with you all the cool things we have planned for you guys this year! Make sure to get on our newsletter to be the first in the KNOW of what is happening, style tips AND contests we will be having!
