Friday night I was lucky enough attend Fashion Houston’s Row Call party at the new JW Marriot Downtown. The proceeds benefited Dress for Success Houston and the turnout was nothing short of impressive. First, let me just say that this hotel is gorgeous and made for the perfect host to all these beautifully dressed fashion lovers. There were bartenders set up at every corner, a sushi bar upon entering, and delicious bites passed around throughout the evening. There were some great musical performances and I loved seeing the models on display dressed in fab pieces from different designers that partnered with the event, but the best part of the night was definitely the mingling. As a new member of Houston Fashion Bloggers I was so happy to meet some talented ladies from the group as well as several other Houston fashionistas. Alice of Trendy in Texas and Ashia of The Color Fashion (pictured below enjoying Circulo drinks) are absolute dolls and Shasie of Live Life in Style has done such amazing things with this group.
The champagne was flowing all night and towards the end the music got louder and the dancing got better, seriously, there was a legit dance group that hit the floor and totally revved up the entire crowd. I rushed to the dance floor to witness the excitement…and do a little shaking of my own, Lauren of Sunday Beach Blog was right there with me and man is she a tiny little ball of energy, I loved it! As if it were possible, I think now, I’m even more pumped about Fashion Houston’s upcoming week of fashion! Are you planning on attending? So far I have tickets for the first night, but I’m hoping to attend more shows, fingers crossed :)
Can we talk about this dress?!? I wanted something simple and sleek, and then I found this Helmut Lang beauty with just the right amount of edge, which made me want a bit of darkness too. Hence, the berry lip. The ear cuff def stole the show tho. Unfortunately I didn’t get any pics where you can see it very well, but everyone loved it. I had people stop me to see if I was wearing one on the other ear also (I was not), some to ask if they could take pictures of it and some just to compliment it. I scored it at Forever 21 a while back but being such a statement piece, I’ve only been able to wear in a couple of times. This was definitely the dress for it, and nothing else was needed!
A very special thanks to Houston Fashion Bloggers for my press pass to this fab party!
