Maverick Monday: Macy's "The Style of Soul Era" with June Ambrose

"I am a member of the Everywhere Society and Everywhere has provided me with compensation for this post. However, all thoughts and opinions expressed are my own."





If you've been reading this blog for some time you know that I have a massive girl crush on celebrity stylist and rock mom June Ambrose. Not only are we born in the same month (days apart to be accurate) and have a deep love for style but I truly admire her work ethic and am impressed with how she manages her busy career and role as mother. Not to mention that  her shoes are to die for and with all her videos and flipagrams, she is absolutely one of my favorite people to follow on Instagram.
So when I found out that Macy's would be honoring Black History month by hosting events all over the country with June and costume designer Johnetta Boone that celebrate the Soul Era in fashion and design, I jumped at the chance to attend. These ladies are icons in the fashion world having worked with everyone from Beyonce, Jay-Z and Will Smith and have been featured in magazines all over the world as well as VH1 and HBO. And now both of them are going to be at a Macy's near you!

Do you die? Because, I totally did! I've been wanting to meet June for a long while and it seems that 2015 is finally my time!
I'm excited to be attending the Soul Era event on February 26 in Los Angeles and I may or may have not danced around my office upon receiving confirmation because I could NOT contain my excitement!  There's no purchase necessary to attend and it's guaranteed to be a great evening. If you don't live in L.A. there are still a few more stops on the tour!
  • Macy’s State Street (Chicago) – February 19, 5:30 pm
  • Macy’s Union Square (San Francisco) – February 25, 6:00 pm

So go here: http://bit.ly/MacysBHM2015  for more information on how to get tickets to the event closest to you. And if you're in L.A. come on out and say 'hey girl hey' to me! I'd love to see you, talk fashion and take an 'usie'!


As a child of the 70's I'm slightly obsessed with fashion from that era and love looking at old photos of my parents and their friends as well as iconic magazine spreads and random archives from that decade of over the top fashion and accessories. The 60's and 70's are my favorite era of fashion and I'm looking forward to the panel discussion and fashion show. I'm semi in search of a fabulous jumpsuit from that era and hope to be inspired even further by the evening.
