60 Fashion Houston Night 1 November 2014 Little Black Dress designers Beth Muecke

Beth Muecke is one fashionista who travels to the beat of her own drum. Out there, daring and unconventional are words that come to mind when considering her fashion bent. On a recent January night, the fashion blogger dressed somewhat conservatively compared to her normal sartorial repertoire.

For the Vault ariel dance presentation and José Sanchez fashion show, Muecke, who regales the hipster and high-style fashion sets with her blog BethieLife.com, wasn't about to tackle the chilly night in her signature short looks. "I'm known for wearing mini-skirts, but it was so cold out tonight I thought a nice long pencil skirt would be better," she says.

The sequined skirt was a find at Express, topped by a jeweled sweatshirt from BCBG. Her jeweled-collared blouse was a find at Urban Outfitters. Accessories included booties by Guess, ear cuffs from Tootsies and a wristlet purse from Tory Burch.
