With the release of my line TwentyFour20, some of you have asked me questions about prices and why the items are not at a lower price point.
So I wanted to take a moment to give you guys some background on how prices for our items are determined. There are many other companies who have their own prices, some higher, some lower, but I am not them and therefore can only speak for myself and my own business.
There are several factors that go into determining price, but these are some of the main reasons:

Well, to say it has been a crazy few days would be the understatement of this millenium and maybe the next.
I've finally launched my first collection, TwentyFour20 by Allison McGevna. Man, I have worked so hard on this for the better part of the last year of my life. It's been non-stop work and it really took over my life for a while. But it was all in the best way possible.

Last month, I had the most wonderful time out in Manchester when I was asked to participate in a blogger photo shoot for Simply Be UK. I've had the pleasure of working with the USA team several times, but this was a shoot geared toward the UK audience and I was doubly honored to be asked to come out, especially as the only American blogger.
At the shoot, I met a group of amazing other bloggers including Rachel from A Dress Is for Life, Rosie from A Rose Like This, Betty from Pamper and Curves, and Nancy from Sugar, Darling? . I came in not knowing any of them and after the day together, I left feeling like I had a group of fabulous and beautiful new friends.

I'm still a little bit in denial that it's actually fall outside. That is until I step out and I see the beautiful leaves and colors.
I finally got a chance to wear this fab PU sleeve peplum jacket from Simply Be that I got last weekend at the POSH LA Fashion Show's trunk show they had for bloggers backstage. I fell in love with it, it's a great versatile piece for fall.

When I attended Posh LAFW this weekend, I got the chance to see some fabulous runway fashion from stylist Reah Norman that left me completely inspired.
One of the pieces that I literally gasped over was this pink dress from City Chic. I saw it come down the runway with a statement necklace, retro January Jones-inspired hair and a petticoat underneath it and I knew I had to have it.

I just came back from the most whirlwind weekend ever. After finishing up a shoot in the UK, I flew out to Los Angeles for POSH LAFW.
The show was styled by the amazing Reah Norman, and I have to say it was some of the best styling for a fashion show I have ever seen. With all the shows I go to, it can be tricky sometimes for plus size shows to get it right. Reah killed it! There were so many fabulous outfits and all were either vintage or grungy/rocker. Somehow, she made those two very different themes work together so well.

As much as I love a good celebrity collection, I'm not usually one to buy a head to toe look from a celeb line. But when I was in London last month, I fell in love with Rihanna's pieces for River Island so much, I just had to snatch them up.
I have to admit, when I first saw the teasers online, I thought they were cute but nothing special. But seeing them in person at River Island, I couldn't resist. They are so simple, but so sexy and not to mention extremely comfortable.
I bought these pieces last month, but I've been so busy with the launch of TwentyFour20, that I haven't been going out or doing anything but work, haha. So when I took a girlfriend of mine out for her birthday tonight, I knew it was the perfect opportunity.
