My Vionics #SoulStory

Recently, I have been having tedious knee pains when doing anything that requires putting weight on them. At the start of my knee pain, it was manageable. As it continued, it became more and more painful.

See Lizzy say it in this video clip!

One day, my mom approached me with the concept of Vionics. Vionics are a brand of footwear that are shaped in a way to lift parts of your foot to promote healthy walking. The inside of the sandals support my feet and help me walk properly.

At this point of pain, I was willing to try anything to help relieve my knee pains. The first time I put them on I was immediately surprised at how they felt different than other shoes, but not in a bad way at all. They felt super comfprtable. They’re cute enough to wear all Summer, too.

Within two minutes of wearing my new sandals, I could already feel less pressure on my knees. I cannot begin to describe how impressed I am with the comfort my feet feel on a day to day basis thanks to Vionics. Ever since I have been blessed with my very own pair, they have been my go to shoe. My knee pain is now, merely a memory!

Here’s an Amazon affiliate link to the sandals I received (except of course, mine are white). They are called the Tide II Thong sandals. They cost about $65. Since these worked so well for me, my Mom actually ordered a pair for herself, too! She bought the Florianas in Snake. I think they cost $80. They look kind of green in person and are cute for her. Here’s a picture of those from Amazon, too.

OluKai New Line Launch

Olukai high end flip flops spread the Aloha spirit with every step.

You can spread the aloha spirit with every step you take in these new offerings from Hawaiian footwear line OluKai. Available at Nordstrom’s, The Walking Store and specialty Boutiques these flip flops, sandals and flats are super comfortable and cute. I got a preview of the new line, including some great new offerings for men. With their signature fold down heel, even laced shoes become slip-ons. How aloha is that?

My Christmas Wish List

Creating our gift guides put me in the mood for making a wish list of my own. I’ve pulled together an outfit that I tried on along with some accessories and a way to give back this holiday season. The outfit strikes the perfect balance between professional and casual that will allow me to feel comfortable just about anywhere. The pants are so flattering and easy to wear, especially in the neutral grey smoke color pictured. The sweater is light weight: perfect for warmer climates. With two pockets in front, it’s on my short list of great picks. I like it in black with this outfit, but the natural is versatile and will work well with my wardrobe when Winter has come and gone. What’s on your Christmas Wish List this year?

The outfit


Slightly transparent cardigan with a pair of pockets in front.

Tried this on in the store with the monochromatic top and pants in Grey Smoke. So perfect for everyday wear here in the Southland. Size M/L for a relaxed look, in black.

Fresh Produce Tee Shirt

This slim fitting, 3/4 sleeved tee with ruched sides in Grey Smoke for a monochromatic, wear anywhere look with the Cora pant (pictured below). Both from Fresh Produce. Size M. So flattering!

Cora pant from Fresh Produce Clothes.

Also in Grey Smoke, the Cora pant from Fresh Produce is the perfect pant for everyday. Remarkably flattering and easy to wear. Size Medium, please.

The Accessories


Gorgeous Silver Vines Cuff from WorldVision.org. This jewelry purchase gives back. The bracelet is free with a donation of $85 or more “where most needed”. World Vision has been giving gifts that matter since 1996.

Love these mules from Dansko. Just right for comfort, casual styling and adding a little height to help me see eye to eye in meetings and look a little taller on camera. Size 39, brown.

Fortune Cookie Screenshot 2014-12-05 15.01.35

This sterling silver fortune cookie locket comes in your choice of lengths. I like the 20″ chain to go with the outfit above. The locket is very small and delicate with room inside for keeping a message close to my heart.

 

The Big Stuff


Opportunities to give back.

A bicycle for a girl, small business loans for women – imagine the impact your gift will have when 10 new businesses are created or a girl can ride a bike safely to school. There are opportunities to volunteer here, too. From WorldVision.org

Style Fashion Week

On Thursday, October 16th, I attended Style Fashion Week. This was my very first Fashion Show, and it was absolutely amazing. The atmosphere was so professional and inspiring. Once I stepped inside the massive tent, I could immediately feel my posture improve. Thursday night, the shows were benefiting City Of Hope. The shows were Signature Young, Control Sector, I AM ZOE, Kaye Morales, Atiz, Judith & James, and Donna Mizani. I have to say my favorites were Control Sector, I AM ZOE, and Kaye Morales. With an iPhone at 17% and high heels from H&M, I was able to capture the flow and beauty of the articles of clothing.

I have never sweated so much standing still. Since I am 13 years old, aside from taking photos and slo-mo video of the featured clothes, I was also scanning the room for celebrities. The first couple of moments into the Control Sector show, I recognized one of the models distinct hair styles, (half black, half white.) Then I recognized the model, it was Shei from ANTM!! I could barely control myself. I was literally watching my favorite model from my favorite show in a fashion show live and in person. I couldn’t believe it when TWO MORE models from my favorite show walked onto the runway. I was speechless and breathless. I felt extremely grateful that I was successful dragging my mom to a fashion show on a Thursday night.

The rest of the night, I was on cloud nine. I had witnessed three of my favorite people doing what they do best and I met Arden Rose! If you don’t already know, Arden Rose is a beauty guru and YouTube vlogger. I have probably seen every single one of her videos.

Anyways, besides being starstruck four times in one night, I found each designer irresistible. Each collection was extremely unique and powerful. I loved Kaye Morales because the message that I received was intense. I loved the usage of color, (bright red, black, and white.) Control Sector was another one of my favorites. It was very hip, stylish, and comfortable. I could see myself wearing their clothes, if I was in their targeted age group. I’m so glad that I was able to go to this exquisite and amazing fashion show. I have to say, modeling and designing clothes are starting to appeal to me a little bit more. I can’t wait ’til my next fashion show.

Peace,

Lizzy K
P.S. That’s me in the picture with Will and Adam from America’s Next Top Model! I know, right!!??

Thursday night was smoking (see the section around 1:47) at The Reef in downtown Los Angles. We headed inside to our spot on the Media risers to view the hot line up for Style Fashion Week. Not only did we get an eyeful of fashion, but America’s Next Top Model contenders Shei, Will & Adam were walking for Control Sector!

YouTuber Arden Rose was in the crowd to see J & J and Lizzy K. got in a brief chat. She’s so pretty and was rocking a short black dress with flounces and flair, paired with understated nude heels and fabulous matching bag. She’s nice, too! We tried to take a snap for you, but our phones where full from all the fashion! We didn’t even get to shoot all of the sizzling styles we saw! Check the blog for more from EncinoMom & Lizzie’s Tween Beat, coming soon.

This was Lizzy’s first live runway experience. After a full day of school and a shoot of back to back episodes of EncinoMom Unboxed, she kicked it into high gear with soft black suede heeled booties, a sleeveless black dress with a long heathered sweater and lime green bag for a pop of color. The whole look was picked out and paid for out of Lizzie’s allowance! Pretty impressive. The Media access pass was added at the show. 😉

We both loved the tall cut out boots in the Kaye Morales show. The masked models were very editorial as they often say on Project Runway. The two piece lace dress from I AM ZOE caught my eye, too. See more fashion in the video.
