Just in case you were under the impression that Kentucky doesn’t know about fashion, you are wrong!

Recently I attended (as a board member of the Lexington Fashion Collaborative) the Kentucky premiere of Dior & I, which you can find on iTunes, along with a red carpet and awards ceremony. I even got to talk about it on the news and be on state to present the Collaborative!

This was a night to remember with great fashion, friends and an amazing film! For the event I wore a Divine on Broadway dress that made me feel like a princess! I styled it with gold sandals and a sting of pearls reworked to look like a body chain making the look all mine.


Rocksbox Rocks!

With the first semester of my Senior year in full swing, shopping has been pushed to the very back of my priorities list. Although this is good for my wallet, it is not good for my shopaholic instincts!

Luckily, Rocksbox contacted me recently with the answer to my dilemma! Through them you can rent designer jewelry rather than putting the money down to buy it full price. This is especially helpful if you are on the fence about whether you would really wear something or not. For me, that was these kendra Scott earrings.

I love that someone else picked out the jewelry for me because even though I do love to shop, it is fun having someone else pick things out for me.

If not for the stylist, I would have never tried this attached double ring that will now be one my finger for the rest of the month!

The best part of all of this is that you can rent jewelry for FREE for a month using the code: laurenallenfashionblogxoxo .

Fall Favorites!

fringe boots- Zappos

Wine colored booties- Aldo

Military jacket- Macy’s

Flare jeans- Dillards

Cranberry crossbody-  Nordstrom Rack

London Fog-  Amazon

Prepping for KRNL Fashion’s Fall issue has had me craving Fall fashion, so I though I would share my Fall must-haves on here before the magazine comes out! Booties literally show up in my dreams. There are just so many beautiful colors, textures and styles to choose from! The best ones have just a little heel and fringe (adding a beautiful color is a plus). Military inspired jackets are back in full spring. Keep this look classic with a hunter green cinched waist jacket or trench coat. Speaking of classic, we are totally throwing it back this Fall all of the way back to bell bottom jeans! Dress these up with a pair of heels, or down with a simple tee. Finally, the color that has me drooling is cranberry. Try this color in a pair of booties, a bag or even in a jacket to really make a statement.

First day back to reality!

School has officially started which means that it is time to transition from my meeting wardrobe to school wardrobe. Although those two do overlap a little, they are separate… at least in my mind. For my first day of classes I wore my new favorite Target jeans with a LOFT tunic and navy accessories. The weather in Lexington has been absolutely beautiful which made the first day of classes much more tolerable!

Finishing the Race.

It’s that time of year again.This week I start my Senior year of college. Although I am doing everything in my power to pretend the semester isn’t going to start in just one day, I am also ready to power through it to get to the finish line.

As life’s little inside joke to me, I am spending the last two days before school starts on campus working. I can’t complain too much though because that work is on their fashion magazine! The semester hasn’t even started yet and I have already fallen in love with the job and the experiences it is giving me.

The best thing that a new school year brings is fresh new Fall fashion. For now I am still embracing summer colors by mixing and matching some very girly and bright pieces, but I am starting to mix in some Fall trends like this purse that I am in love with! Fringe is absolutely one trend that I will buy into!
