The Fashionistas: Featuring Nicky Hilton

Last night was a very special night here in Dallas. I had the honor of meeting Nicky Hilton at a book signing of her new book, put on by The Fashionistas at Belk. It was a fun night of saying hello to old faces and getting to know new ones. Meeting Nicky was a plus. Everything in my look is vintage besides my silver pointed toe heels, from Target.

Let me start off by stating the obvious: Nicky Hilton has amazing style. But this is about more than that known fact. Hilton's new book "365 Style" is not exactly how to dress like Nicky Hilton, or how to dress a certain way, it's more of finding your own personal style and the essentials to put that together. That's how she came up with the 3-6-5. The 3 stands for three different lifestyle components, 6 stands for six different clothing staples, and 5 stands for the five must have accessories per season.

The Fashionista's very own fabulous LeeAnne Locken was lucky enough to get a Q&A with the blonde beauty. Nicky discussed what pieces work for just about anyone from casual wear, to holiday or event wear. She covererd her own thoughts on style and how she puts together her own signature looks (which is all styled by herself). Something that stood out to me was Nicky's "blacklist", which include staples in black that every woman needs, which will never go out of style. The blacklist contains a black bandage, or pencil skirt, black blazer, black jeans, the iconic lbd (little black dress), and black flats/heels.

At the end of the night, I had my very own copy signed by now MRS. Hilton, who happens to be newly engaged to James Rothschild, by the way. She is so kind in person and was such a pleasure to listen to throughout the night. Photo credit goes to my good friend QC, an extraordinary photographer.

Here are pictures taken during the event:

At the members only party before the Q&A and book signing, Nicky mingled among Dallas' most fashionable group of people. The whole night was filled with smiles and laughter, and will be one memorable night.
