Oh Baby, Dallas Was A Trip! Check Out My Pics to Win $100 at Lady Foot Locker for Sportswear!

Fashion/Gift

Even babies love fitness fashion. I think...

I went to Dallas to spread the word on Lady Foot Locker's new look and share my best advice for styling up for fitness. Even though the city was crawling with West Nile virus and being spray-bombed, we managed to fight off the deadly mosquitoes and bring great fitness fashion to the women of Dallas. But YOU, my readers, are always top of my mind, so I'm giving away this $100 Lady Foot Locker shopping card!

For the GIVEAWAY, all you have to do is:

Check out my pics from Dallas and tell me which Fit Look or Fit Trend you like best from the fashion show we put on. Easy peasy, right? The winner will be announced on Sept 6th so stay tuned.

The Fashionably Fit event in Dallas at NorthPark Center was a totally new and fun experience for me.

I've never done a panel discussion and meet & greet in a mall. I can't remember the last time I was in a mall before this event! As a New York City girl, I miss out on malls. NYC is all about street shopping. But NorthPark Center was cool and had healthy food options in the food court. Now that was totally unexpected!

My co-panelists were none other than Ashley Torres from Pursuit of Shoes, Bex from Bexlife and Hallie Wilson from Corals & Cognacs. Bex is my girl as you may know from all the videos we've done together, but I became insta-friends with Ashley & Hallie and you must check out their fashion blogs!

Adrienne Bailon, former Cheetah Girl and now star of Empire Girls joined our fitness-fashion brigade soon after the panel, and it was crazy to see all her fans in effect. I will always remember her from 3LW's hit No more.

And a little secret about her--she does her own makeup! In the morning before the event, we were all hanging out and I asked her about her makeup (strangely I wasn't wearing any). She said she did it herself and went it comes to sportswear style, she always starts with capris. Personally, I was fascinated by her perfectly shaped bun. I want one!

Best moments from Dallas? The fashion, duh!

I got to see all the new sportswear that Lady Foot Locker is coming out with...and it's GOOD.

Here are the Fit Looks from the LFL's Fashionably Fit fashion show. Which one is your favorite? Be sure to tell me in the comments section at the end of this article (for the giveaway).

Below is my favorite look because I like the layering and color mixing of the sportswear. I like how the outfit is transitional for post-gym errands or meeting up with a friend or whatever happens to be on the schedule that day.

Here are the Fit Trends I loved the most from the show:

  1. Fishtail braiding in hair
  2. Sports bra layering and color mixing (using different bra styles like racer back and strappy)
  3. Adding big gold bangles for a transitional fit look
  4. Knee-high sport socks with soccer-style sneaks
  5. And yes, neon colors ruled the catwalk!

I never break promises!

If you read my 1st post written in-flight to Dallas, I promised to do a handstand if we had an amazing turnout.

That about sums it up!

I'm hoping you'll join me in Chicago this weekend (Aug 25th) because that's where we're headed next! Here at the deets:

Saturday, Aug 25th at North Riverside Park Mall from 11am - 4pm

My favorite look is the same as yours - the "fearless" on the shirt and the layering (as well as the colors) are all awesome.

Love this recap post! What a trip, indeed.

Frydel August 22nd, 2012 11:08PM

Love the layering. always fun to read your comments.

Jennifer Davis August 22nd, 2012 11:10PM

I love the the orange outfit. also the fearless..
And I love Bex.

Hi Frydel,

I love seeing your comments! I'm coming to STL next month. Let me know if there's anything you need as far as workout gear or just fashion accessories in general. I hope you are staying strong and continuing to define the whole idea of MizzFIT. You inspire me with your fortitude. A big hug!

Jennifer,

Who doesn't love Bex. Every time she's on my site, it's like a love fest for her. We're going to need to clone her so that we can all have our very own Bex to keep up company and in shape! Thank you for your comment!

Adriana C. August 22nd, 2012 11:56PM

I loved the first look on the left. Those colorful capris are so fun and festive incorporating bits of neon and then unifying them with purple. Love it!

SHARON DANGLES August 23rd, 2012 2:35AM

I LOVE THE MINT GREEN tank with the hot pink shorts and colorful gym shoes. I always wear tanks and shorts to the gym. I have a pair of black gym shoes and would really like to have a colorful pair because that's what's in style now. I would really like to win the $100 gift card because when you look good in your workout wear it motivates you to workout and I need some motivation right now! Loved reading your article and seeing all the cool pics (and your handstand!)

Elise Towers August 23rd, 2012 4:20AM

I really like the red-long sleeved shirt and the black pants. It's 100+ degrees where I live today and those workout clothes make me remember that cooler days are ahead!

Carrie August 23rd, 2012 4:28AM

My fave look was the Fear Less one too. Love the black capris - I have learned the hard way that black bottoms are the only way to go (sweat marks anyone???).
When I was looking at the pictures I wished they has used real fitness women instead of the waif thin models, oh well, still loved the fashion!

Danielle August 23rd, 2012 6:59AM

I like the gray tee with the blue running shorts and socks combo! I love the fluorescent pops of color and the little shorties under the running shorts! If I could wear work out clothes all day everyday I sooo would! Xoxo

theresa j August 23rd, 2012 8:25AM

I also like the bra layering buy I dont like those pants. I like the black ones

Tess August 23rd, 2012 12:45PM

I love the off the shoulder bright orangey-red top, and no doubt the SHOES. fab colors and styles!I love Bex and she raves about you so I thought I'd check your site out..... she was right, you rock. You two are amazingly fun and motivating! Thanks

Juliette @ Finish Your Broccoli August 23rd, 2012 4:52PM

I love the sports bra layering! And those knee-high neon UnderArmour socks are epic!

MizzFIT August 23rd, 2012 5:31PM

Hi Nikki,

So glad to have a new follower and psyched that we're now twitter buds. Neon is definitely rockin' the fitness apparel world. And Lady Foot Locker is bleeding neon colors at the seams. So this shop card would be perfect for you. Good luck and I've entered you in the giveaway!

xoxo, MizzFIT

MizzFIT August 23rd, 2012 5:33PM

Hey Adriana,

Yeah, those pants are TO DIE FOR! I need to snag myself a pair of those. I love loud pants! Thanks for telling me your fave!

xoxo, MizzFIT

MizzFIT August 23rd, 2012 5:35PM

Hi Sharon,

So happy to hear SOMEONE appreciates my handstand!!!! hahaha! I agree, black sneaks were IN last season and now it's all about bright sneakers. Well, if luck is on your side, you will soon have a pair from Lady Foot Locker!

Thanks for sharing your fave! --Mizz

MizzFIT August 23rd, 2012 5:37PM

HI Elise,

Where do you live? I'm in NYC and it's actually quite warm here too. I'll be sad to see summer go there. I just love exercising outdoors in the summer. Esp in the evening.

Mizz

MizzFIT August 23rd, 2012 5:38PM

Carrie,

I know. Those models had no muscle on them...except for maybe the "Fear Less" girl. I wish I had picked fit models...but it wasn't up to me. Oh well. I love that you shared your opinion on that though. Because it's really good for us women to voice that to fitness brands. Thank you!

Mizz

MizzFIT August 23rd, 2012 5:40PM

Danielle,

The socks are just so much fun. I was dying over them. I am buying a pair on Saturday in Chicago at our 2nd Fashionably Fit event. I must have them! Thx for leaving a comment!

xoxo, MizzFIT

MizzFIT August 23rd, 2012 5:42PM

Hi Theresa,

The bra layering is unexpected but makes sense esp if you could use the extra support. I just love how it looks. I hear ya on the pants and you're not alone. Most women prefer black pants/capris. The benefit is that dark colors are always slimming. Thx for sharing your fave!

Mizz

MizzFIT August 23rd, 2012 5:44PM

Hi Tess,

Thanks for stopping by! Bex is my fitness crush and so glad she likes me back. Otherwise I'd cry myself to sleep every night. I hope you visit more! And let me know what kinds of fitness trends/workouts you're into.

Thanks!
MizzFIT

MizzFIT August 23rd, 2012 5:45PM

Juliette,

EPIC IN DEED! I'm hoping they make the socks in various color combos so that I can buy more than 1 pair when I hit the Lady Foot Locker store this weekend at our 2nd Fashionably Fit even in Chicago at North Riverside Park Mall. Fingers crossed. Thanks for leaving your comment and you're now entered for the giveaway!

xoxo,

Adina August 23rd, 2012 6:00PM

My favorite trend is NEON. Love attention grabbing colors. They just make you feel good when you are working it.

Livivua August 24th, 2012 3:54PM

I like the black pant and orange shirt - looks like workout and just lounging. I'm down with comfy- yes.4eva.r@gmail.com

Merrilee Zielinski August 24th, 2012 4:45PM

I like the second look from the right, off-the-shoulder bright top and long pants- awesome for my yoga workout!

MizzFIT August 24th, 2012 7:43PM

Hi Adina,
You are not alone in your passion for neon. Colors are so much fun, aren't they? As a New Yorker, I have to get out of my habit for dressing in black a lot...but it's just part of the city-girl in me. And I agree about the effect that color has on our mood. Personally I like the effect it has on other people around me too. When I wear my bright green Mizuno sneaks, I always see people smiling as they look down at my feet. Makes me want to smile too. Funny how green shoes can do that!

Thanks babe!

Livivua,

Comfy doesn't have to mean pajamas, right?! That's what I love about that look. Thanks for sharing, girlfriend!

MizzFIT

MizzFIT August 24th, 2012 7:47PM

Merrilee,

Baring a little bit of skin can be REALLY SEXY! And what you don't see from the pic is that the top has mesh paneling at the shoulders which provides even more sex appeal in addition to great ventilation. Thanks for telling me the look you love!

MizzFIT

giantsis August 24th, 2012 8:59PM

I like the sports bra layering of colors and styles! I need to try that!

MizzFIT August 24th, 2012 11:09PM

Hello there Giantsis,

Ditto! Let's both try it! Thanks for leaving your thoughts!

I am loving the neon colors this year!! They are so much fun and look look great layered!! Not only are they fun and bright but they look amazing on and make you want to workout!!!

MizzFIT August 26th, 2012 8:00PM

Hi Brittany! I remember when neon was super in style in the early 90's. Those were the days and the resurgence of neon brings so many happy memories back from my youth. So I like neon for this reason too. Isn't it interesting how fashion trends cycle? Thanks for leaving this comment! You're entered for the giveaway!

Hugzz,

Love all the motivational tees, and of course I'm so obsessed with neon!

MizzFIT September 4th, 2012 8:41PM

Hi Sara Jenn,

I wasn't always so into motivational tees but some inspire me enough to rock 'em. What kind of phrase would you put on a tee (that you'd actually wear proudly)? Curious to hear! You're now entered for the giveaway!

Thanks!

Katie September 5th, 2012 3:54PM

Just do! I love the colors- and that saying in my head always pumps me up for a good run, and keeps me in the right mind set to go all the way.

Thanks for sharing the pictures, can't wait for everything to come out this fall!

Sara Jenn September 6th, 2012 6:27PM

MizzFIT,

I really love the "that's what's up" one. I get it from my boyfriend, He played college basketball, so that confidance fromthe court, carries over to when he is in the gym. That confidance is what has helped me with my weight loss journey. Half the battle is getting the balls to get up, go to the gym, and take care of your business without being worried about not being the most fit person there. The amazingly cute workout gear that has been coming out lately totally helps me get that confidance to go to the gym daily.

Excited to see who wins!

MizzFIT September 7th, 2012 7:15PM

Hi Katie,

Everything you see it out right now! Thanks for leaving a comment. You're so chipper and I love that!
