The Limited/Jodi Arnold Event

A couple weeks ago, I told you that The Limited was bringing Jodi Arnold to the Kenwood store for a fashion show and shopping event. We held contests to give away gift certificates and even opportunities to get a one-on-one wardrobe consultation with Jodi.

I caught up with one of the three consultation winners, Lindsay. She just graduated from law school and moved to Cincinnati to get her career off the ground. She just got her first job out of law school and needed tips on how to dress for success. Lindsay is a curvy girl, so she wanted to look trendy but not tacky, professional but not frumpy.

Check out the video below to see the three outfits Jodi put Lindsay in, and the tips she gave her.

At the event, there was a fashion show to showcase Jodi’s new line at The Limited. I really enjoyed it because Jodi explained each piece, the inspiration behind it and the various ways you can wear it. This was a rare opportunity for people to actually hear these things live from the very person who designed them.

I took video of the entire show for you to enjoy. It’s about 10 minutes long. So, if you didn’t get the chance to make the event (or did and want to relive this oh-so-cool experience) check out the video below!

Jodi Arnold, Designer for The Limited, Coming to Cincy!

Exciting news on the local fashion front! An internationally known designer, Jodi Arnold, is coming to the Kenwood Limited on Aug. 18 (event deets below). The Limited is celebrating by hosting a free event with cocktails, fab fashion and big discounts (up to 40% off!).

I found out about it after The Limited stumbled across my blog and wanted to work with me, the blog, Cincy Chic, and my blogger friends to get the word out about the event. I’ve loved the Limited for years, so of course I was interested.* But I didn’t know much about Jodi so I did my homework…

I found out Jodi has her own label, and has for more than a decade. She recently started a collaboration with The Limited where she designs an exclusive line for them. I took a gander at the lookbook for Jodi’s Limited designs, and I truly fell in love. They are the perfect outfits for where I am in life right now: Professional by day, socialite by night.

It’s tough to strike this balance though. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve run home after work to throw on something a little less corporate and something a little more fun and fashionable.

But in several of Jodi’s designs, the fun and fashionable is built in to the professional and polished attire. Take a look at the slideshow below and see for yourself. Some of the outfits I can see myself wearing a blazer or cardi over for work, and then slipping that off to wear Jodi’s cute dress or embellished tunic out for cocktails with the girls.

So, I can’t wait to meet Jodi now when she comes to town! And I can’t wait to try on some of these outfits that would save me so many drives home for a costume change!

See below for all the event info. And make sure you click here to visit my friend Kasmira with What I Wore Today ….we’re having a contest to win an exclusive one-on-one wardrobe consultation with Jodi Arnold and a $50 gift certificate to The Limited!

Jodi Arnold Trunk Show at The Wardrobe

I’m really excited about all the new stuff The Wardrobe Cincinnati has been doing lately. I recently blogged about their new men’s stuff, and just the other day I read that they have some golf apparel now too.

Well, I got an email from a PR gal with Jodi Arnold saying that they are hosting a trunk show at the Wardrobe April 9th – April 14th. I’m psyched because I just heard about this designer a few months ago when I learned she was launching a collection with The Limited. I’ve seen her stuff there and it’s super cute (think “boyfriend tank” meets “bedazzler” meets “chic enough to wear under a suit”).

Jodi is an interesting designer because she’s an up-and-coming designer who’s getting collections in huge stores like The Limited, but she’s still accessible enough where she’s doing personal shopping for her clients in Manhattan. And her designs look like things I could actually pull off. The Limited collection is much more my price point, but her high end stuff takes the runway trends (i.e., floral) and makes them wearable enough to be every day.

So, here’s the info about the trunk show!
