The Clash

Hey Dolls!!

Last weekend, I had the pleasure of attending “The Clash”.  What is The Clash you ask?  The Clash is a Fashion Show designed to promote up and coming models and designers in the Polk County and Hillsborough County areas.  For those of you not from Florida, these are counties in the Tampa Bay Area (Tampa, Lakeland, Auburndale, Bartow, St. Petersburg, etc.).  
When one of the designers Jasmine Hunter of JayHunt Designs contacted me about blogging for the show, I said of course!

The Clash showcased a combination of 8 designers and boutiques and a live performance.  The show itself is performance style as well.  You guys know I am FAMU Alumni and I have been accustomed to performance style fashion shows since my days in college, and The Clash took me back! 

This collection of designers and boutiques are very rare and provide a very individualized approach to their designs and collections. The show kicked off with designs from "KayChic" by designer Kaylin Patrice.  Kaylin shared that her line provides styles that are Ready To Wear, Custom and Re-Vamps.  Check her out! 
Next Up was "#1 Fashions" An affordable online boutique, owned and operated by the lovely Kelley Michelle.
The next featured designer was Jasmine Hunter of "Jay Hunt Designs".  I have been following her for quite a while now and I get more impressed with her each show.  Jasmine's line is all about "Sexy Sophistication" for the strong and confident woman.  
Up next was "Diva Fit" by ShantelDivaFit is a new fashion brand that provides all the DIVAS with sexy, vibrant and glamorous clothes. This line caters to women and girls.  

The fifth designer in the line up was Desiree of King T's.  "King T's" is aline that features Urban Fashion and Clubwear as well as pieces for infants and children. 
Next in line was a showcase of the fashion provided at Addicted Boutique a very popular local boutique. 
Then there was "Grier Co.", a contemporary clothing line created by Dadrian Grier.  I absolutely love how this line was styled for the show and the models SERVED it.  
To closeout the show, Jay Hunt came with it again! I'm telling ya'll this girl doesn't stop. She has collections for days! Check out her finale pieces here:  
So Dolls, I must say I enjoyed myself at The Clash.  I love performance infused Fashion Shows!  I hope you enjoyed the pictures and be sure to checkout all of these up and coming designers and models adding their footprints to the Fashion Industry.

Puerto Rico Days

Hey Dolls!!

As promised, here is the post featuring my day looks from my lovely vacation to Puerto Rico.  As you may have read from my last post, I totally loved PR and my vacation was one of my favorites.  Here are my "daytime" looks from my trip. Hope you enjoy Dolls!!!

I wore this first look traveling to Puerto Rico so I wanted to be super comfortable.  I don't like a whole lot of fuss in regards to my clothes when traveling so I tried to keep it simple yet fashionable.   

As you guys may have noticed, I switched in and out of my earrings. I started out wearing this cute clip on pair, but after a while they irritated me a little and kept sliding off of my ears so I slipped on some easy hoops. 

What I'm Wearing:  Gap and Target Tank Tops/Silhouette NYC Shorts/H&M Sandals and OldNavy FlipFlops/Aldo Purse/Thrifted and Forever 21 Earrings/RocAWear Aviators/Ecko Bracelet

The next day in Puerto Rico we went sight seeing in Old San Juan and to the Bacardi Factory.  I wore something easy...a dress.
That dress was a great pick so easy and breezy to wear!

What I'm Wearing:  HOT KISS Dress/Jessica Simpson Sandals/Aldo Purse/Random Earrings/Forever 21 Necklace, Bracelets, Ring & Headband/Random Sunnies

The next day was a beach day I really didn't put on any clothes, LOL!  So my next day time look was on MY BIRTHDAY.
What I'm Wearing:  BeBop Dress/Forever 21 Earrings/Betsey Johnson Shoes/Target Purse/Juicy Couture Bracelet

My last daytime look from my Puerto Rico trip was what I ended up wearing to travel back home. 
I LOVE You Puerto Rico!!!
