Recap of Florida’s Finest + What I Wore to the Barack Obama Fundraising Event

Good Morning ALL!! I hope you had a fantastic weekend. I know I had a great time! As we all know last week I was Spring Breaking it and had a week full of Florida guest bloggers! I want to first start off by saying Thank you to each and every one of the ladies who participated in the guest blogger series. I adore each and every one of you and your blogs.

Each lady brought something different to the table. Let’s start off with Sche of Curves and Confidence! She killed it with the three ways to wear a maxi skirt. After reading everyone’s comments I think we would all agree that the third look was all of our favorites and I know we all will be trying out this look. Then we had the lovely Kerissa of A Diva Mom’s Journey who rocked an A line skirt which she paired with a cute camisole and cardigan. The look was very classic and chic. On Monday the lovely India of IfreeNaturally shared her journey that focused on her transitioning from relaxed to natural hair. She received great feedback from readers as well as friends. Next, Shanequa of Fashion Pad rocked a body con striped midi skirt. She was cool and casual! Wednesday’s guest blogger is my fellow USF Alumni Ariel of Fashion Devotee. I was first drawn to her patterned tights!! They were so unique and flowed well with the rest of her ensemble. Thursday’s guest blogger is also another fellow USF Alumni Jennifer of Chic Desire. She wrote about rocking denim different ways which was great because I have been meaning to try out this trend! To end out the work week we had Shalonda of Candy Coated Cashmere to show us what she wears on Friday’s at work. I loved those pants!! To start the weekend off we had Dionne of The Prissy Shopper share with us a few purses that she had recently purchased. They were so cute. My favorite purse was the purple and pink one! Last but not least, the lovely Jillian of NuSophisticate closed out the guest blog series mixing prints. Loved the polka dots and leopard mix. Will definitely have to try that out as well.

So there you have it folks. Thank you all for the support that you gave these ladies throughout the week. The RT’s on Twitter and sharing of posts on Facebook was so sweet. They really appreciated it!

Last Thursday I had the pleasure of attending a Fundraiser for Barack Obama that was hosted by Hope: Young and Powerful group here in Miami, Florida. The event was held in the Design District at CafeIna Lounge. It was such a cute venue. I tried to take pictures inside of the place but the lighting was not agreeing with my camera so I just gave up on taking pictures of the venue. Overall it was a great event for such a great cause.

Dress:Forever 21/Shoes:OLD,Nine West/Clutch and Bracelet:Forever 21/Earrings:Thierry-Accessories

I knew that the event was semi-dressy so I opted for wearing one of my favorite dresses that I bought a Forever 21 about two years ago. I love the colors and how it fits me. I usually wear my nude heels with it but I decided to wear my gold and tan Nine West heels with it. I purchased these in 2007 and believe it or not I have only worn them maybe two or three times, including last Thursday. They are very comfortable so that is probably why I never parted with them. To complete my look I just added some cute earrings I recently purchased from Thierry, a cute Forever 21 cuff bracelet and yellow bow clutch!

Thanks for your support and I hope you all have a delightful Monday!

Dr. Patty’s Dental Boutique Launch Party: An Elegant Cocktail Soiree

Me (cheesing EXTRA hard), Dr. Patterson and Sche

Good Morning ASW Readers!! We made it to Friday. Woot Woot. I’m very excited about this day because when 3:30 P.M rolls around I am officially on Spring Break! As many of you all know I will have guest bloggers during the duration of my Spring Break and I can’t wait for you to read their posts. It all starts tomorrow!

Anywho, I had the pleasure of being invited to Dr. Patty’s Dental Boutique Launch Party this past Wednesday evening. Dr. April Patterson is a highly trained cosmetic dentist who is dedicated to the state of the art dental technologies. Patterson’s philosophy is to create a smile that reflects who you are, that helps you achieve your goals and enhances not only your teeth and overall youthful appearance, but help improve your self esteem and confidence. This remarkable woman graduated from The University of Michigan in 2008 and has worked extremely hard for the past couple of years to make her dream a reality.

Let’s move forward with the details of the event. So Dr. Patty’s Dental Boutique is located at 646 North Federal Highway in Ft.Lauderdale, Florida. Like I stated earlier, this is not your average dentist office. The boutique offers spa like services to her customers. Below is a picture of the lobby area. Click on the picture below to view more pictures of the office.

                            The lovely Sche. Everything about her look is AMAZING!

Dr. Patterson was gracious enough to provide gift bags to all of her guests that attended her soiree. The gift bag came with a mug with her company’s name on it, chapstick, and a sugar cookie. I haven’t gotten around to eating the sugar cookie but it looks yummy. Oh I forgot to mention that myself and Jillian were winners of 2 out of the three giveaways that Patterson had. I won a $125 gift certificate to Roman Interior Design, LLC. It is perfect timing because I am moving into a new place in the summer and I would love to have something original and chic. To check out more of her work please click here. Thanks again Marisol for the gift certificate!

The event was magnificent. I met some new people and had a blast hanging with my friends. Special shout out to Matthew Beatty for informing us about the soiree. For more information about Dr. Patty’s Dental Boutique please click here.

Have a great weekend folks and thanks for stopping by.

XoXo,
