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 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.

When Ralph Lauren in the Galleria invited the founders of Dec My Room to hold a benefit shopping night in the sleek boutique, Susan Plank and daughter Kendall Plank were on it. Building support for their non-profit, which decorates hospital rooms for youthful patients receiving long-term care, is at the top of their wish list.
For the event, Kendall, a freshman at Texas A&M University, dressed the Ralph Lauren part in an iconic Black Label open cardigan worn over a white silk top by Rag & Bone, fitted jeans by Vince and stylish wedge boots from Fendi. The sunglasses, matching those of the mannequin, are Ralph Lauren as well.
The designer connection could not have been more appropriate for Kendall, a starter for the A&M polo team. No surprise, Ralph Lauren is her favorite designer.
