Fall is Here and So Am I!

Hey everyone! I just want to thank you for the great introduction and let you know how excited I am to be contributing to this Tallahassee blog. I am sorry I haven't come on sooner, but moving back to school for the new year and getting my classes figured out took some time, but now I am here and raring to go!

It is said great writers write about what they know. So as a girl with a passion for fashion, I hope to bring you the styles and trends seen in Tallahassee. Also if there are anything else that comes my way from around Tallahassee, I will be sure to let you you know. So lets' jump right in :) !

Fall is here now with Labor Day weekend, even though it doesn't feel like it here in the sunshine state. Now is the time to do some updating to your closet, this doesn't mean an overhaul but it never hurts to get a few signature pieces. So here are some of the trends you are going to see around town and in the stores.

Think Purple! Yes those royal deep purple hues will be taking over the runways and the street corners. They are a beautiful deep tones for anyone to wear, yes even for you men. You are going to see lots of deep purples in shirts, argyle vests and sweaters, and even socks for you guys. Trust me women love a man who has confidence enough to sport some purple. I am going to bring more of men fashion in an upcoming post, so be looking for that soon.

Other great trends you are going to see are a bright bold floral and some geometric prints. This is not the season to blend into the back ground, it is all about standing out. Another print you are going to see a lot is plaid. A lot of this is going to be skirts and coats, even leggings.

Remember trends and styles aren't meant for you to overhaul your closet to get the latest items. There are easy ways to incorporate new trends and colors into your own sense of style. If you have any questions about fashion, or fashion related topics, feel free to leave a comment and I will get back to you :).

Free Chick-n-Strips at Chick-fil-A this Labor Day

I've previously blogged about how much I love Chick-fil-A and here I go again. This Monday - Labor Day - receive a free three-count new Chick-n-Strips when you wear your favorite football team's logo or attire. This includes professional, collegiate, high school, middle school or recreational. I think all I have is a pair of Gator earrings from the University of Florida (sorry folks, I no longer live in Tallahassee).

So if Chick-fil-A is near you, be sure to visit on Labor Day between 10:30 a.m. to close for the Chick-n-Strips Giveaway. (And be sure to wear your Noles' logo.)

Space Aliens to Take Over Tallahassee: Aug. 30 - Jan. 8, 2009

Okay, not real space aliens, but I ask, do you believe in UFOs? Green men? Extra terrestrials? Life beyond Earth? Then the upcoming exhibit at The Brogan Museum is for you. (If you're a skeptic, this is for you, too.) Launching August 30 is The Roswell Exhibit, dedicated to UFOs and the like, highlighting the alleged 1947 UFO crash and subsequent government cover up in Roswell, New Mexico.

This exhibit is exactly the quirky stuff I'm into and really wish I was living in Tallahassee to see this. If someone attends, can you tell me if it's out of this world?

Oh! Be sure to check out the blog and share your thoughts/experiences about UFOs.

Here are the details:

What: The Roswell Exhibit
Where: The Brogan Museum, Tallahassee
When: Aug. 30 - Jan. 8, 2009
Check the Museum Web site for times and admission.
