AVA J. HOLMES – FASHION SHOW PRODUCER OF FFC
Apr 10th, 2018
I have always enjoyed making friends with people with lots of experience in their field. Those friends often share life stories about how they become established. One common thread I hear: ” When I focus on doing one thing well, opportunities usually arrive.”
How did I meet Ava? Last year, Ava and I happened to sit next to each other while I attended the FashioNXT fashion show as a judge and official partnered blogger. According to her, she was impressed with my outlook of the night and the way how I carried myself. She immediately extended her invitation to me to join her show at 2018 London Fashion Week. Next thing I know I was in London for LFW!

Apr 7th, 2018
So much has happened in the last month! I have some great news to share:
- After 3 months of focused efforts, my Instagram followers have reached 10+K. I am thrilled to have reached this milestone. I know without your support, none of this would have happened! So thank you, I love you all!
- I had the honor of accepting the offer to become an ambassador for Fashion for Conservation, a fashion show created to make a positive impact on the world through conservation-inspired couture. FFC’s next big show, Seattle’s 4th Annual Rainforest Gala, will take place on June 9th 2018 in Seattle, Washington. I will be there and so should you!!!
- Those of you who follow me on Instagram probably have already known that I was in DC a week ago. I had the opportunity to work with, interview, shoot Ahmed Shihab-Eldin, a well-established journalist from AJ+ . Stay tuned for full interview post and hear more about the story.
- I have also decided to launch VLOG. Today, I am sharing with you the very first video production – “3 ways to wear a sweatshirt.” I would love to have your usual support to subscribe to my youtube channel. My goal is to initially have a minimum of 2 VLOGs per month and gradually increase the frequency if it is widely appreciated. Hence, your feedback is critical to help guide me.
Without further ado, here is the 1st VLOG:

LONDON FASHION WEEK ’18 – DAY 2 OOTD
Mar 31th, 2018
I woke up feeling energized and refreshed on the second day of my London trip. My photographer and I decided on a change of scenery for our next photo shoot, so we took a trip to the English countryside.
I decided to go with a Moulin Rouge-inspired PINKO tulle evening dress, a completely different look and feel than the day before for London fashion week (click here for my post on the first night look).
LONDON FASHION WEEK | FASHION FOR CONSERVATION
Mar 15th, 2018
Those of you who have read my previous post, know that I attended London Fashion Week a couple of weeks ago. London is my favorite city in Europe because of its food, fashion scene, and breathtaking architecture — not to mention I was there for Fashion Week, which adds another level of euphoria. I felt that all the cells of my body were awakened the moment I landed and couldn’t wait to get a glimpse and this season’s upcoming fashion trends.
Fashion for Conservation (FFC) was the first show I went to. It was founded by three women determined to make a positive impact on the world through conservation-inspired couture. They combined their talents and passions to create fashion campaigns that educate consumers on animals and ecosystems, while donating funds to wildlife groups — all while doing it in fashion (pun intended).

Being able to go to London Fashion Week (LFW) has been a dream of mine. It is one of the goals I set when I first started Style Right. I have never thought I could achieve this goal at this early of a stage in my blogging career. However, I always believed that hard work and perseverance, no matter the obstacles, would always pay off – and it did for me.

Hello everybody! I am back from my quick trip to London for the 2018 London Fashion Week. I finally caught up on my sleep and am excited to share pictures and stories of my experience. Stay tuned for upcoming posts! In the meantime, I have a late winter Portland snow event series for today.
Since this winter had been milder than normal in Portland, I was thinking “will it not snow this winter entirely?” And then it snowed. I guess my call to the universe was heard. : )
WATCH OUT FOR THIS WATCH!
FEB 14th, 2018
Today I received my JORD watch, and opening it felt like Christmas! I haven’t been this excited to open a package in a while, and when I saw the packaging, it was love at first sight! So I got right into planning an outfit for it in order to post about it today for you – my beautiful styleright’ers.
With the stunning wooden textures, brown and rose golden colors, and handcrafted feel of the watch, darks were the way to go. And after swifting through my mess of a closet, one piece stood out to me – my brand new Free People Jumpsuit I got two weeks ago. (more…)

The retail fashion industry transition to internet makes more complex personal purchases like special occasion dresses easier every year.
