In the beginning, God created………..FASHION!

Stylin’ in the City July 9, 2011

I had a fabulous day, today!  I attended an event today, as a *drumroll please*…………………BLOGGER!  I attended the Styles in the City conference in my hometown of Detroit and I got a lot of information and met alot of great people who are in the fashion industry. I met LeTicia F. , a makeup artist, photographer, and stylist who has worked with Ford, IMG, and NEXT.  I also got to meet one of my Twitter pals and the creator of the The NYLA Report , Asia Willis.  Both ladies are from the D and it was just encouraging to meet women who have and are making it happen, cause I am considering going to another level. More about that another time.

So….I decided to go casual to the event, because it started at 8:30 in the morning and I just didn’t feel to get glammed up.  Anywhoo, I just picked up this top a few days ago.

Top-Alfani @ Macy's, Leggings-Alfani @ Macy's, Thong Sandals-Payless

I really like it and it is feeding one of my current obsessions………pockets.

I love pockets!

I also wore a belt I thrifted Value World, as a cuff on my wrist.

It just added a little touch of sparkle (my other recent obsession).

Well……I am exhausted.  Gotta get some rest. I am going to the beach after church tomorrow, so I will talk to y’all later! xoxoxoxoxo!
