Rodeo + Chanel + Saks Event

The most adorable Chanel decorated cupcakes!

My favorite person at Rodeo, Ava Lemoine who will be leaving us new for a great new job opportunity! So proud of her!

This is me post Chanel/Saks Makeover.  I don’t know if you can tell, but I am wearing a dark wine Chanel lipstick.  I thought it would be the perfect holiday lip color so I decided to add it my lipstick collection!

Picture above:  They have a great selection of inexpensive wax-coated denim in a beautiful assortment of colors!

Good Morning readers and Happy Halloween!  I hope you all have been having a great week so far!  These are just a few pictures Casey and I snapped yesterday at the Rodeo + Chanel + Saks in-store makeup consultation event right after I got made over by Chanel makeup artists.  Sorry, that we didn’t get any pictures of that!

On another note, I’m sorry that we still haven’t launched the Amanda Uprichard Leather Peplum top Giveaway yet, but it has been delayed due to Hurricane Sandy.  My prayers go out to those affected by the devastating storm in the Northeast.

 P.S. I hope you all have a safe and Happy Halloween.  Here are two picture of my homemade Halloween costume options, Catwoman and Consuela from Family Guy!

Outfit: Citizens of Humanity Rocket Leatherette Skinnies, Heartloom Cameron Tunic Top, Tart Collections Faux Fur Vest, Dolce Vita Penn Booties (Entire outfit from Love Boutique in Baton Rouge), White Crochet Beret (Target),

Jewelry: La Mer Collections Wrap Watch (The Villa), Rose Gold Bracelet (J. Crew), rings (Club Monaco and David Yurman)

Good Morning readers! First and foremost, I hope you had a wonderful weekend! Secondly, thank you all so much for supporting Haute Off The Rack on Facebook!

Yesterday, Haute Off The Rack reached 1,000 likes on Facebook, and it hasn’t even been published for a full year yet. I can’t begin to tell you how thankful I am for all of your support! Also, a big thank you and congratulations to Taylor Smith for being the 1,000th person to “like” Haute Off The Rack’s Facebook fan page!  I’ll be contacting you soon about a special surprise!

Third of all, how stunning does this shade of blush look against these chocolate brown wax-coated skinnies! I immediately fell for this gorgeous color combo after putting the outfit together, and I’m sure you could agree that the white crochet beret gives it the perfect finishing touch.  The whole looks practically screams Fall, which explains why I felt the need to toss the crisp brown and golden leaves up in the air. You wouldn’t believe how thrilled I was when when we shot this look, not only because I loved the outfit, but because it was on the same day as our first official cool front in Louisiana!  We couldn’t have planned it better!

P.S.  What do you think of Kristen Soileau’s photography?  I think she did a pretty amazing job!

New pieces from the Amanda Uprichard Fall 2012 collection!  Coming soon to Haute Off The Rack!

Good Morning readers, How much do you love these Citizens of Humanity wax coated denim and Hunter rain boots.  I’m sure some of you may be thinking that they’re all a tad pricey so I think it’s time that I let you in on a little secret…   I rarely ever pay full price when purchasing an item online.  All it takes is a little research!  Basically, all you need to do is go to a coupon web site such as and search the online store that you plan on purchasing from.  Coupon Chief will provide you with a list of possible promotion codes and coupons as well their success rates.  You can search any type of store from clothing and accessories to home and electronics.  Plus you can even search by related tags such as denim, electronics, jewelry, beauty, etc. to find the best deal on the item you’re searching for.  If you don’t have the time to search, no worries Coupon Chief will search for you!   Just sign up for a free account to receive email alerts for coupons for all your favorite retailers.

 I’ve actually used Coupon Chief myself quite a few times, and I usually always find a coupon that works!   I recently used a promotion code from Coupon Chief and received 10% OFF a dress I purchased from Revolve Clothing.  I ended up saving $19!  That’s nearly half a tank of gas!

 Considering that I am a college student on a budget, I am always looking for ways to save while still being able to keep up with the latest trends.  That is why I always search for coupons and promotion codes before making an online purchase because I never want to miss out on an opportunity to save a few bucks!  Actually, I shouldn’t just say online purchases because I’ve found in-store coupons online while out shopping on a number of occasions.  And if you’re lucky some stores will even honor online coupons and promotion codes.  It never hurts to ask!  So next time you’re ready to make a purchase, don’t forget to see how much you can save at!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Me with designer, Isabel Varella of Izavel

Good Morning readers, as you know last week I attended a few shows during NOLA Fashion week.  The NOLA Fashion Council along with local designers put on an absolutely fabulous week of runway shows and I can’t wait until next fashion week in March 2013! It was so great getting to see Isabel Varella again and I’m so glad I was able to view Izavel’s S/S 2013 collection since we recently collaborated together.  Her Spring/Summer collection is full of soft pastel colors and aqua hues.  I was also very impressed with Kallie Forster’s first official collection.  She took tribal prints to the next level.  Last but not least, I thoroughly enjoyed the classic southern look of  Jolie & Elizabeth’s S/S 2013 collection.  I was even able to get an interview with them so you’ll get to know and love these two talented New Orleans designers very soon.

P.S. I promise to launch the Amanda Uprichard giveaway soon along with some outfit posts!
