Only one more day till I take off for the Kentucky Derby, where I’ll be reporting all the sensational styles I’ll be seeing there for NBC and Do tune in and watch!
Although I have one hat being made by the amazing Emiliano Moreno , I’m still on the search for my second hat of choice. What do you think of these I came across from the adorable The Hat Shop in Soho New York?
Hmm..I’m not so sure yet so I’d love to hear your thoughts. Oh, btw..check out the adorable ladies I met working at The Hat Store. Babes got their hat swagga on point. If you do get out there, ask for Marla, who was wonderful!
And the style stakes are up!
Because your very own Jeannie Mai is going to be in Luh-ville, Kentucky for this year’s Kentucky Derby! That means you better be following mai fan page on Facebook , Twitter and Instagram. Not only will I be reporting the fashion on NBC, I will also be posting everything worth seeing online for YOU.
This also means of course, that I’ve got to get a hat! I can’t even tell you B.U.G.’s how excited I am to pick out just the right one for each of my outfits. I plan on wearing two hats specifically that you’ll be seeing, and one is currently being brought to life as we speak. When I envisioned a piece that would be unique and celebratory of the Derby, I knew I had to call upon my exquisitely talented designer friend, Emiliano Moreno. Emiliano has made many exclusive garments for me on my show “How Do I Look to special events, like my speaking engagement for the Maria Shriver Women’s conference.
I also just got special news. Emiliano has shared with me a glimpse of the piece he’ll be creating for me. Here’s a preview of it’s before pic:
I want to come up with a name for Emiliano’s creation when it’s done. (I love naming special pieces of mai wardrobe.) From the look and color of it so far, can you help me?
This Monday, I’m honored to be invited to join the panel of speakers of FAAB- Fashion and Beauty Blogger Conference. Here, actors and hosts within the industry will speak with influential bloggers about the impact of fashion on television and how the styles of characters influence society. I love discussions like this because it’s always invigorating to meet passionate people. Plus I enjoy seeing the different forums people will use to celebrate style, which in turn makes me so proud to do mai part to encourage dressing up our identity.
What kind of things do you want to know about fashion within the television industry? Have you been influenced in your personal lives from shows or characters you watch onscreen? What would you ask if you could be at this conference, and do follow me on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram to see mai details about this fabulous event.

I recently spoke in Atlanta for the Atlanta Mart that takes place several times a year all over the country. In my speaking engagement I talked about the reason I’m passionate about personal style- WEARAPY. If you follow me thru online or through any of my shows you’d know that Wearapy is my idea to use color and textures to impact your mood and situations. Every day can be a different mood, a different combo of colors, and you’ll begin to experience an EMPOWERING control on your life all through the way u carry yourself.
In Atlanta I challenged everyone to dress purposefully in a color that best represents the message they want to convey. Look at this dollface here who tweeted me a picture of her a radiant ensemble around red.
Red is a color that can symbolize action, confidence, courage. The floral notes add a youthful fresh touch- this would be a perfect outfit to wear out shopping with friends, or even on a date to tell him you’re looking forward to making it a fun day!
They say to much choice can make a women crazy? Not for THIS Fashionista. To many outfits, not enough days in the week is the way I see it. So friends, join me with all the behind the scenes of week 7 and I will show YOU where the sparks come from.
It’s down to the final 8. This week the designers are being pushed to the limit as they get teamed up with the mentors for a lil one on one time. I am literally on the edge of mai seat.
Personal stylist Meg Gallagher of the Madison to Melrose blog helps Susan Carpenter fashion a new wardrobe with recycled and upcycled clothing items.
A lot has been made of organic cotton and other eco-friendly fabrics made from Tencel, hemp and bamboo as fashion rides the mega-trend of environmentalism. But recycled clothes purchased at thrift and consignment stores, as well as upcycled items reworked from out-of-date castoffs, may be an even greener choice. Almost half of the climate impact of clothing occurs before it reaches consumers.
It was this idea I embraced when I hired a wardrobe consultant for a desperately needed eco fashion makeover.
