Ooh La Luxe fashion boutique kicked off a relaunch event with a fashion show, flaunting some of the most sought after trends.

On Nov. 15, Kimberly Lawson, owner of Ooh La Luxe, showcased a trendy collection that is cohesive in color, material and cut.

“Neon is huge,” she said. “So is faux leather or leather inserts; and cut-outs have been pretty big for a while.”

Lawson likes to spice up an everyday outfit by adding extra elements.

“I can’t lie and say I don’t personally love those three trends – I really do,” she said. “I think they all make an ordinary outfit or item, such as a sweater, more interesting or a feminine piece, like an A-line skirt, a bit edgier.”

One of the most eye-catching pieces of the night was an asymmetrical dress. The top was a sheer tank-cut with a leather insert accented by a flowing royal blue bottom. The dress had an edgy-meets-romantic feel to it.

One of the reasons the boutique is so intriguing is because of the not-so-common pieces Lawson chooses.

“I tend to carry items that are a little bit more fashion forward, and I don’t mind pieces that push the boundaries a bit,” Lawson said. “The overall value is great, I try to keep everything under $100, and most of my pieces are in the $30 range.”

Lawson plans on more fashion events for the upcoming seasons.
