Stylish Review: Junior League of Atlanta Nearly New Fashion Show

Monday, April 15, 2013

What I Wore: Teal Jumpsuit- Vintage Weirdo/ Sequin Belt- B & R Thrift Store/ Calvin Klein Bird Cage Booties- Dillards

I attended the Junior League of Atlanta Nearly New Fashion Show to get a sneak peek of their latest spring fashion pieces available at their store. The thrift store is located in the corner of the Howell Mill Square shopping center next to Kroger at 1715 Howell Mill Road, Atlanta, Georgia 30318. The fashion show was held at the gorgeous Wimbush House on Peachtree Street. 

My special guests were my grandmother and my mother. They have enjoyed attending my blogger events with me and I like that see that my blogging is a serious matter and not just a phase that I am going through. Below are pictures from the event, including my favorite pieces.

A few fashionable guests who attended the fashion show. Including my mom, who found a guest who has her similar style and personality. I think they are long lost sisters.

I had a great conversation with the fashion show emcee, 11 Alive news reporter Blayne Alexander. She wants to try thrifting and will join our Thrifting Atlanta group on Sunday for our Thrift and Brunch. Below are pictures of my fashion pieces.

All of these pieces are available at the Nearly New Shop Thrift Store. I wished that the pieces would have been on sale right after the fashion show. I would have went home a much happier person. Shop with your Thrifting Atlanta tote bag between April 19-28th and save an additional 20% off your purchase. Which look is your favorite? Click HERE to see more pictures from the fashion show.

Two Stylish Kays Wins Best Fashion Thrifter B.FAB Awards

Friday, April 5, 2013

On Sunday, March 24, I  attended Atlanta Taste Maker Magazine's B.FAB Awards Brunch, were I was honored as one of the nominees for the "Best Fashion Thrifter" Award. The event was held at Ambient Studios. It was the first time a formal ceremony was held to celebrate bloggers in fashion and beauty. So for this special occasion, I wore a vintage full length gown that I scored from Goodwill North Georgia. 

My family and closest friends joined me for support, even my dad and my mom's childhood friend, flew in from New York to join me for the celebration. I love having them around to see an experience what blogging is all about. Now they understand and can appreciate what I do.

My favorite makeup artist, Kristina Ross was on site to provide me a with a glam makeup application that complemented my look impeccably! She rocks!!

So after weeks of anticipation, I was so excited for the big announcement and the presentation of the award by Tiffini Gatlin, Founder and Editorial Director of Tastemaker Magazine. And I have to tell you that it was such a proud and humbling moment being named the "Best Fashion Thrifter".

I certainly appreciate all your votes and support from all my readers. It really means so much to me. My goal has always been to be an inspiration to show women that they can look stylish in thrifted fashion. So this award emphasizes and celebrates the accomplishment of my goal. And I sincerely thank each one of you for your continued support in making this moment a reality. You can click HERE to enjoy the official event recap from Atlanta Tastemaker Magazine.
