Hey y’all, hey!!! This past Saturday, I had the pleasure of co-chairing the Summer Dreams fashion show for my little cousin Darryl Ray Dewberry, an inspiring fashion designer. This was a fund raising event held in my aunt’s backyard, to help her with the cost of preparing for her coming out. She will be a debutante in Washington, D.C. this August, for the National Convention of Gospel Choirs and Choruses.
It was a great event, with my family involved and an opportunity for young people from the local chapter of NCGCC, to strut their stuff. I didn’t get a chance to take pics of the actual show, because I was in the house helping the models to get lined up and making sure the show flowed.
I did take time after the show, however, to set up the tripod and take pictures of my outfit.
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, the dress I am wearing! So colorful and cute! Alot of bigger women are intimidated by stripes and there was a time when I was too, but this dress just drew me in and I had to have it.
….and my clutch? Love to the nth degree! It is suede and the metal details just have me enthralled.
Anywhoo, I better get that dress to the dry cleaners ( I don’t want it to get pilly), so I can wear it one day in D.C. What do you think of the dress? Do you wear stripes? Let me know what you think. TTYL!
