The Fashion Week Window Shop

So, friends…as the PR chair for NWA fashion week 2013, I’ve been asked to blog in support of the local participating boutiques. We are posting my introduction today. I’ve copied it below but go to the site to keep up!

Hi to all the sartorially preoccupied of NWA, my name is Payton (Rosenzweig) Bridewell and I am the window shopper.
Since Fashion Week 2013 is right around the corner, it’s time to join me for a peek in the proverbial windows of the participating boutiques/designers/shops. Once a week, I’ll be highlighting the shops with shows. I’ll be perusing their racks, choosing a few pieces to take home and styling them with what I already have in my closet – granted… I am something of a clotheshorse. I’ll show you some of the wonderful things you can find shopping in NWA and how to wear them.
I’ve rounded up a local team of skilled professionals to help me and we can’t wait to share what we’ve done. Find me on instagram @mspayton to stay tuned!

Absence to Fondness? / What I Wore: Sophisticated Christmas

(what I wore: hat – vintage via cheap thrills, earrings – grey dog (revamped by Stacey @ Dark Star Visuals), dress – sketches by christine jaguin via cheap thrills, b pin – vintage, heels – stuart weitzman via daisy exchange)
While I realize your life does not revolve around what I might have worn,  I do apologize for leaving you hanging over the holidays. I was ill/traveling/hope you’ll forgive me. Posts probably will be a bit more sporadic as I’m working on some exciting stuff that I will share soon and some not so exciting stuff that I won’t bore you with. Happy 2013 & thank you for visiting.

This is my 1000th post! I’m thrilled about this milestone. I’m exceedingly grateful for the encouragement, kind words and new friendships I’ve received through The Window Shopper. I wanted to make this 1000th post special for me and for those of you reading…so I called in a few favors. Mallory shot my wedding and she is extremely talented so I was overjoyed when she consented to take a few pictures of me outside of my office’s bathroom. Mallory introduced me to Mollie,  an incredible makeup artist that got me camera-ready.
We did several different looks and this was one of my favorites (more to come!). The coral blazer is actually part of a two piece set, it goes with a dress that has a really cool cutout back that I’m looking forward to wearing this summer. The pink sequin collar was a wedding gift from my friends at Cheap Thrills. It really is amazing to live in a smaller town where you can forge relationships with the people at the stores you love. When I approached Cheap Thrills and Grey Dog about collaborating with me on a giveaway they were excited, helpful and very generous.

GIVEAWAY

Just in time for spring, I’m giving away three lovely vintage items: a beaded flower necklace with earrings (from Cheap Thrills) and an 80’s cream clutch (from Grey Dog). All you have to do is like The Window Shopper on Facebook and comment below. Tell me in the comments about your favorite vintage find. I will announce the winner next Wedesday, 3/21.

BIG NEWS!

So, my lovely wedding photographer Mallory Berry, a very talented makeup artist Mollie Booth and I collaborated on a little outfit photo shoot that I’m super excited about.

Blog Crush: 5 inch and up

I recently happened upon Sandra Hagelstam‘s extremely inspirational blog – 5 inch and up. Aside from her obvious love of heels, she is devastatingly beautiful, she has great taste and often features budget-friendly items. The Finnish beauty also includes readers in her new projects, travels and favorite finds. Check her out.

A Brief (Wedding) Hiatus

Friends & Readers, the day approaches.
I’m getting married on Saturday and will be away from blogging until September 12th. I hope you’ll come back and visit me then. I appreciate all of the people I’ve met, reconnected with and encountered through this blog. I hope there are many more good times to come.
Fondly,
Payton
