Sun, Champagne & Scantily Clad Models at Santana Row’s Poolside Soiree

People may tease models that they have an “easy” job, but isn’t it a lot easier to just sit back and attend a fashion show? While we’re watching, admiring and critiquing the fashion; the models do all the work strutting down the catwalk in 5 inch heels, posing, changing, and smizing in 7 layers of makeup.

This weekend we went to Santana Row (aka NorCal’s mini Rodeo Drive located in Silicon Valley) for the Spring/Summer Fashion Show. It was time for the 4th Annual Poolside Soiree, where my sister and I had a great time last year, watching Taylor from the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills host. This weekend, there were some amazing clothes, sunshine, champagne and one flowy kelly green dress that was our absolute fave…

The Crew

My sister, Jody, and I. We also invited our brother, Drew, and friend Morgan. (Previously featured in the “Date at the Creamery” post)

The Event

Guys can wear pastels this spring too…

Bright colored lanterns are the perfect decor for any outdoor party.

Getting ready for the show to start…

The Fashion…Let the Show Begin

This is a unique fashion show, because the designers are stores in Santana Row so it’s a wide variety of styles. Each store is announced before the models emerged from the curtains. My only critiques were that I would have swapped some outfits on some of the models. Also, it’s no big (Victoria’s) secret that I’m a fan of well made enhancing bras. Some models walked out bra-less and the dresses or tops just didn’t fit well, so if there was time while they were changing, I would have added different undergarments. Otherwise, the show was great!

Spring trends were in full bloom like this colorful striped top (Anthropologie)

Colorblocking, nude heels, & jelly purses (Spazio & Furla)

Sporty bikinis & board shorts (Oakley)

 “What to Wear to Coachella” ~Basically, the perfect collection for outdoor music festivals by (Free People)

Plenty of men’s fashion as well like this suit by Franco Uomo


My Favorite Look of the Day

This kelly green long sleeve flowy dress was my favorite look by Franco Uomo

‘What to Wear’ to an Outdoor Fashion Show

Whether you’re going to a wedding, outdoor party or fashion show, keep a couple bright solid dresses or tops in your closet. Pairing a bright dress with a neutral or contrasting bright heels is a simple easy way to pull off spring/summer trends. Then just accessorize with your favorite jewelry.  (I’m wearing a yellow Calvin Klein dress I found the night before at TJMaxx)

I wore these heels by BCBG (Recent ROSS find) ~ Nails (Sinful Colors ‘Neon Melon’)


That’s a Wrap! 
Special Thanks to SFC Limo

Travel Smart, Travel Safe, Travel in STYLE ~ I wanted to thank my new sponsor SFC Limo and  Alex for getting us to Santana Row and back making our day much more enjoyable. Dealing with insane parking tickets, traffic and the hassle of getting around the Bay Area or to Napa for a day of wine tasting can be hassle free & affordable using SFC Limo. To book a town car or limo, call them @ (650) 430-5887 or check them out online here

After we got back to SF, the fashion packed Saturday was only half over. My sister and I rushed over to style Hermione Way for the new reality show ‘Silicon Valley.’ I had to get her ready for a big Grecian house warming party starting at 6 pm. We had 1 hour. I’ll be back Wednesday with my adventures of a two day dress hunt through San Francisco and a behind the scenes look at the night of styling with the final “Greek Goddess” reveal…until then, I have to ask

What would you wear to an outdoor Fashion Show?
I hope you had a great weekend!
