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"?? 

​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.  

Keep Phoenix New Times Free... Since we started Phoenix New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Phoenix, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Phoenix with no paywalls.
