Inspiring Style: Santana Row Beauty Bash


Wednesday night I participated in the Santana Row Beauty Bash - a benefit for Dress for Success. As one of the featured style consultants, I gave some fashion advice to the attendees. But before the event started, I received a complimentary blowout and styling at W. Salon. My hair stylist, Mark, was really great and could work with my natural hair. One of the few times I've straightened my hair (that's what wigs are for). It'll last for another day.
At Scotch & Soda I sat in a comfy director's chair with my own little table. We had bottles of rose too. Women came in and had a lot of great questions for me, like: How do I introduce color into my wardrobe and What do I wear with a trench coat? I hope I was able to answer their styling questions, or at least get them a sparkling wine buzz.
This Nasty Gal cape has become one of my best investments. Just about everyone I spoke to loved my cape and wanted one for themselves. I also ran into Kathleen of KatWalkSF as she was doing consultations at Loft. I was a bit nervous about giving tips, but it was quite easy. I gave style inspiration, which is what a muse does, right?
