Years ago my sister, one of the BIGGEST FEMALE SNEAKERHEADS I know, would email me links from http://www.nicekicks.com/ ...and it was on that particular website I came to realize there were actually other people out there who shared the same love of sneakers as my sister! "What a weird hobby..." I thought until a few years ago she and I took a trip to Dallas to a sneaker summit...after I saw my sister interact with other sneaker freakers (it was like watching those people on CNN that work on Wall Street lol) I started to respect the sneaker culture. People of all ages, race, and walks of life discussing sneakers...I didn't see one sign of hate...so I HAD to respect their game! It was at that same sneaker summit I remembered NICE KICKS stole the show...and in March 2010 I was glad to see Austin's Matt Halfhill turn his cyber love into a storefront. If you are a sneaker head and ever in the Austin area stop by NICE KICKS...I'm sure you will leave with a hot pair!

So retro, so chic, so refreshing, so spring, so summer...so who designed these pieces? ONE OF THE MOST HARDEST WORKING STYLISH FEMALES IN HOUSTON: MODEL KELE! This maybe one of my first blog posts about Kele but I gurantee you it won't be my last. I took notice to Kele's style a few weeks ago on Twitter and grew excited when I found out SHE DESIGNS! See MODEL KELE in the 5th photo and see more of her designs HERE (THAT YELLOW/BLACK POLKA DOT PEPLUM IS CALLING MY NAME!!!) If interested-click the word Twitter, mentioned above, to contact Kele about purchasing her designs!

Don't sleep...HOUSTON is home to some of THE HOTTEST up and coming talent!  When I came across "Monache' Couture" website I thought "There's nothing like a chic with a needle, thread, fabric, and a vision..." And "Monache' Couture" designs for babies (see last photo) as well...that baby's attire scream "IT'S MY BIRTHDAY" lol. Or what about the ladies in search of a one of a kind wedding gown? "Monache' Couture" has the ladies covered (literally) in that department as well.

Here's the intro from "Monache' Couture" website:

Monache' Couture an upcoming Houston designer that makes sure individuality is key! When creating garments the most important part is making sure that you do not look like that girl next door, but you look like your own individual self! Nothing makes me happier than seeing a client happy with themselves and what they are wearing especially in their own skin! So again enjoy the site and the garments that are advertised on the site were hand-made by Monache' Couture herself and are not to be duplicated! Happy shopping and always strive to be YOURSELF that is when you look your best!

When I first came across the blog DIVINELY DRESSED I thought "FINALLY, here's my chance to post about a stylish Houston teen!" Then after reading the "About" link on the blog I found out this stylish young lady has completed her teen years lol! I was impressed with her use of  layers, colors, and texture. It seems she pieces each of her outfits together with the same mind set that an artist has to a blank canvas. And she even throws a pair of sneakers in her lady like mix! Here's some info about Ms. Divinely Dressed:

"I am a 24 year old fashionista, stylist, closet auditor, crafty d.i.y.er (my made up word, lol) and philanthropist from Houston, TX. When I am not working in the fashion arena, you will find me in the schools as an Community Outreach Associate for Girl Scouts, or spending time with my family and my awesome Babe! After years of dressing friends and family for free and having strangers ask for style tips, I am turning my passion into a career that helps women dress divine and feel great about themselves!"
