Mimi's Hot Couture Fashion Show

Me with designer Mamie, of Mimi's Hot Couture

Last night, I attended Mamie's Mimi's Hot Couture Fashion Show, collaborating with Neesa Models. It was held at Pearl Studios, usually a place for dance classes & practices. (My friend goes there often so I was familiar with the venue.) This was Mamie's first show.

Things did not go as smoothly as one would hope; the audience couldn't hear the host when she was speaking, and there were breaks throughout the show. For example, we would see about 8 models walk down the runway with one look, then we'd have to wait for about 5-10 minutes, then they came out again with a 2nd look. It was like that process for the entire collection - instead of seeing the entire collection fluidly at once & a quick finale walk. [Although, you do have to give her credit for pulling it off since the changing room was down the hall so obviously the models could not change as fast. Keep in mind, it was held at a dance studio so there were other people in other rooms.]

However, the collection was beautiful & consisted of gorgeous prints. Her pieces are also being sold at an affordable price! Check out her website here. My favorite 3 looks are posted below.
Sandwiches, chocolates, cupcakes, and drinks were available & up for grabs throughout the night. The music was upbeat. Overall, it was a good night. It was nice meeting some new people and it wasn't a bad try for the first show for Mamie! The designer was very open and friendly -- she's the one who approached me before the show & introduced herself! Furthermore, she allowed her guests to meet & take photos with her after the show which was really nice.

Last night, there were a few kinks, but I'm sure future shows will be much smoother!

Below, the outfit I wore last night. I decided to go pretty casual. Black skinny jeans, black heels, pink tanktop with a wide belt & long cardigan. I took these photos after I've already taken off my necklace, which I totally forgot to put back on for the pic lol.
Hope you all have a lovely weekend! Stay tuned for another giveaway soon!!

Audrey! You look gorgeous! Also, I think the floral print dress is very pretty. I like everything about your second fave. The hair, the dress, the shoes. Looks like you enjoyed yourself yesterday. :D Have a lovely weekend!

Sexy looks. Girly ones. Most of all, real life fashion - with kinks and smiles. So nice to see designers who come and chat, let interaction take place. You looked very appropriate for the occasion. Chic, a dash edgy ...and sober at the same time.
