Fit for Fashion at Saks Fifth Avenue

Fit for Fashion at Saks Fifth Avenue

Last Thursday at this time, these MsFits were running around Saks like two crazy ladies pulling together the finishing looks for our first ever Fit Fashion Presentation. We wanted to showcase 5 beautiful new summer pieces from Saks that highlight 5 different areas of the body and how you can work them with simple barre exercises to get your body ready for these summer trends. Yes, trends are just trends, they come and go in a blink of an eye. But each season, there is something new to try, like a different dish at your favorite restaurant... so why not have a little tasting? What I find as a stylist is that people tend to wear a larger array of trends when they feel their best. And they feel their best when they know that they've put in the effort to look that way. You don't have to be a size 0 to attempt every trend, but when you're playing around with fashion, it's much more fun when your confidence pushes you to think outside your own fashion box.

The areas of the body that we focused on were the arms, abs, thighs, calves and butt. And for each of our guests we designed our own little cue cards to help them remember the moves... Our amazing illustrator drew each girl in a fun outfit that I designed, with Jess' careful attention to each one of the poses. We're also going to be posting our own videos to really show you how to execute each one of these routines... Find the videos here.

Also, with stroke awareness being an extremely important cause for us for many reasons and because May is Stroke Awareness month, we invited Dr. Rost, the Director of the Acute Stroke Services at Mass General Hospital, to speak about the importance of stroke awareness and how every one of us should never ignore warning signs and always be conscious about what our body is telling us. 10% of the proceeds from sales that night went to the American Stroke Association which we're so thankful for!

Here are some photos from the event... Enjoy!
