Less Than Model Behavior at Phoenix Fashion Week
Who knew the fashionably chic were inclined to be so fashionably wasted? Maybe it was the "party all night" atmosphere or the seemingly neverending stream of martinis pouring out of Scottsdale's famed Valley Ho this past Friday, but there was a lot of elbowing, a lot of cussing (even in the ladies room, where a woman apologized for using the word "motherfucker"), and a lot of slurred phrases. You thought what about that dress? It was "fantashbuloshus"??
The right way to do Phoenix Fashion Week: dress chic, smile pretty and sip cocktails slowly.
Cute casual wear like this Route 66 pink tee from local designer Kiss The Girl was the norm at Friday's fashion show, which focused on athletic gear, t-shirts and jeans. KTG's other items included flirty, hippie-chic printed dresses and babydoll tops and graphic tees with peace signs and hoot owl appliques. We scored a fun horseshoe tee with the slogan "I Make Luck" from Kiss the Girl's Scottsdale Fashion Square kiosk just in time for a Vegas trip a few months ago. No big wins at the slots, but we sure got compliments on the shirt.
