Last Thursday night I headed downtown with a few friends to the Metropolis Winter Festival for a fashion show featuring clothing from local boutiques, retailers and designers. This is what I wore, but with a fur coat over top because it was  pretty chilly that night. The festival was packed, the music was pumping and a fun time was had by all. Here are some pics from that night:

My friend Caroline's decorative wrist and pretty mint green polish

Fashion Show!

Bamboo Ballroom, Coup Boutique, Gravity Pope, Foosh, Urban, Meese Clothing, American Apparel and Suka (I hope I'm not forgetting anyone!) all participated in the fashion show which was held in a huge white tent in the middle of Churchill Square. Unfortunately I didn't get any good pics of the three unbelievably entertaining drag queens who performed during intermission. They totally rocked it!

I hope you all had a great weekend! Stay tuned for a VERY exciting giveaway! And I mean exciting.

The event sounds so fun, I wish we had more fun events near me...but the closest place is NYC and I can't really be going there every night, haha

Stumbled across your blog and I must say I love it! This outfit is a great example of how fashion bloggers should be. They should stick true to their style and show us what real people wear. Some bloggers just pile up on brand names or wear trends that no one can really wear in their daily lives! I love it!
