Austin Street Style: Fashion's Night Out hosted by TRIBEZA + by george.

TRIBEZA's September offering: The Style Issue.

I attended TRIBEZA's Style Issue launch party at By George this past Thursday, which coincided with the store celebrating Fashion's Night Out. If you don't know what Fashion's Night Out (FNO) is, here's the skinny:

Created by the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) and Vogue, FNO is an annual event that launched in New York City two years ago. Its purpose is to support the fashion industry in this dismal economic climate by making shopping fun again. In its third year, FNO was celebrated worldwide--from within the United States and across the oceans, Fashion's Night Out is now a globalized event. Eighteen countries participated this year, and it's all to further support the fashion industry as it continues to find a way to make its everyday end products sustainable and affordable.

I feel incredibly lucky to have been invited to the By George Flagship (524 North Lamar) by TRIBEZA, and to have met the staff of By George. Before Thursday night, I had never actually been to the By George Flagship, though I have been to their South Congress location. I felt like a kid in a candy store, as it was was a delight to see labels I mostly read about: Dries Van Noten, Lanvin, and Marni, to name a few. And of course, I finally met TRIBEZA's editorial assistant and event coordinator Carolyn Harrold. I love being able to put faces to names of the people that contact me because of Bella Vogue, more so if they're an actual Austinite!

I hope you enjoy the photos I took during the Style Issue launch party. I didn't know a single soul there, so a lot of my photographs were more than just a style shots. For those particular pictures, I may do another "I Spy"-type post, as the first (and only) one was an easy way to summarize my fashion adventures while gallivanting around Austin.
I finally found a reason to wear my dress from LuLu's! (I won a gift-card during the Texas Style Council Conference in March, and only recently placed an order.)

Peach has been a favorite color of mine this past season.
I like the subtle details of each dress; the gathers, the flounce, and the belts...

A few dapper gentlemen: I especially like the fringe scarf.

Proof boho-chic will continue into the fall.
The structure of this dress--its picture does not do it justice!

Side note: I am still getting used to Blogger's updated settings and interface, so if there's a little less continuity between posts (with photo captions, sizes, etc.), I apologize in advance. I am trying my best to make each post consistent with the next. Thank you for your understanding.
