The Beginning of Fashion Week

Posted By on Thu, Feb 25, 2010 at 8:30 AM

In the real world, Fashion Week is over.

Over here at Style Sessions, Fashion Week is just beginning.

When we started this blog, Justin and I would go out into the wide world of Memphis and catch fashionistas at events or parties or just on the street.

We're not stopping that. Oh, no, don't you worry about that. We will continue to jump out at people and randomly compliment them on their outfits. And then snap the poor thing's picture while they're still too discombobulated to say no.

But today we're starting something different.

We've asked some of the city's most stylish people to show off a week's worth of their own personal style.

We'd like to introduce you to Amy Gregory, an esthetician at Hi Gorgeous. We first met Amy at her wedding reception, where like all brides, she was wearing the most awesome dress. Unlike many brides, however, her reception was the day after her wedding. The dress was a light confection that took its lines and cues from a traditional wedding dress, but was shorter and more wearable for an early evening garden party.

Last week, to meet some friends for drinks, she wore a Trashy Diva dress, tights from Target, a belt and boots from Crazy/Beautiful and a vintage Girl Scout sweater.

"This outfit is casual and fun," she says. "I'm into the black/brown combo these days."

The dress, which she got in New Orleans, is one of her favorites, but here's the part that I love: the Girl Scout sweater!

She got it at a thrift store when she was in high school, and it's survived several closet purges since then. And, yes, it might be made for a little girl, but it totally works on her.
