Fashion In the City |Fundraise and Runways! | Front Row CLT

8 Mar

A fashion show highlighting the latest looks for the season is great! But add a charity to the mix, and your really setting trends! On March 5th, Front Row Charlotte raised $10,000 for Baby Bundles, an organization that helps mothers in need with newborn essentials. Attendees felt honored to give back. but felt even more honored when they got to sit their backs in front row seats at the show! Every attendee at the event got a front row seat and an up close look at each runway ensemble!

But the coolness doesn’t stop there – immediately after the runway show, guests have the opportunity to purchase items right off the runway! Five local boutiques were featured: Coral, Coplons, Poole Shop, Social Dress Shop, and Our Place. Pop-up shops for each participating boutique and designer were featured along side the runway.

FSO 2012 w/ Q. Parker of 112

28 Apr

Me, Deidra, Q, and Jania....finishing up our day shift! lol

I headed out with my girls Deidra and Jania to For Sisters Only 2012 (FSO). What was supposed to be a day of relaxing, shopping vendors, and people watching… ended up turning into an adventure as always! Somehow we managed to start working at the booth for R&B singer Q. Parker of 112 selling fitness calendars! haha. We saw him looking a little distressed at his booth as he was setting up and asked if he needed some help – sure nuff, we were on the job! haha. See the photo journey Captured By Stacee Michelle ;):

l had a great time laughin, joking, and working with everyone.. including DeAngelo who managed to not get in any of my pictures! hah. It’s always great to meet a celebrity who is humble and real…Q Parker is greatness already happening!

Keep a look out for his new Album called “The MANuel” this summer and be sure to order one of his exclusive calendars at www.QParkerFitnessCalendar.com!

Pamperrrrrrrrrrr…You. Me. The Experience (Cue Music)

15 Apr

 

Flawless Makeup Team

Today I got to enjoy a day of pampering and parlaying!

Joy Randall, owner of Flawless Makeup, gathered her team of stylists, and gave the city of Charlotte the one and only… “Pamper Parlor” sponsoring the Ronald McDonald House of Charlotte.

Let me take you on a ride through the experience

You park your car at the beautiful South Park condos…

Ride the elevator to the top floor..

*Door Opens*  You are greeted by a table full of your biggest weakness….SHOES! …

As you enter the main corridor you are greeted by smiling faces and fashionable attendees realizing that ‘yes, you did dress appropriately for this’…

Tables are set-up in various stations around the room featuring make-up artists applying some of the seasons hottest beauty products. Visit every station and you will find yourself with a full face of makeup and READY for a hot date! (Unfortunately, most of us were just going home, haha)

You begin to smell something amazing…turn around and there’s a Chef by the name of Ezekiel Cheney giving a cooking demonstration…

You taste the food… mild coma…

The smiling faces and friendly conversations make you feel like you’ve reunited with your sisters…

You take a few pictures to capture the memories and Kodak moments…

I think this is the first FLAWLESS Kodak moment I've had! ;)

Leaving satisfied, sexy, and fulfilled…ready for the next ‘Pamper Parlor‘ to make it’s way into your weekend once again!
