This weekend left no room for fashion shortcomings for the two social events I attended. Outfit concepts better have been created a week in advance, and for the more fashionably consumed, two weeks to a month in advance. High expectations were placed on the attendees of these events, and I definitely felt the pressure. Photography (Flyness Effect) was a large component of these events, and it definitely would have been a tragedy to be caught in a fashion disaster.

 Friday evening was the star studded birthday of Teylor Gaskin and Anthony Blue Jr. Now, Teylor pretty much expressed what she expected from her guests, and I knew I had to go big or go home. Well, let me just say that my custom made dress relieved me of any fashion woes that night. After exchanging ideas and fashion influences with the amazing local  designer , Juantiesha Christiansen of SuShe by JTracey, the ending result was this amazing sequins beauty. Christiansen's skill and talent is absolutely impeccable. I am head over heels with this dress. I mean totally head over heels.

Now if you remember in my last post, I communicated the fact that this dress was suppose to be made for another event prior to this weekend. But, due to work demands the designer had to put the dress on hold. Well, can I just say this dress was worth every bit of the wait.

Saturday night was the going away dinner for Jakeen Couture Fox. I felt the pressures again. I wish I could have repeated my dress again from Friday, but we all know someone would have called me a cab to go home. I managed to put a little something together. Next time I will definitely get something made. I will be sketching a few things for my next dress. I am so elated.
I went for a Chanel inspired prim and proper look, but with a hint of edge. I absolutely adore Chanel's iconic tweed blazers and I am just anticipating the day that I snag a vintage one while thrifting.Until that moment happens, thrifted Chanel inspired blazers will do. This outfit concept came to me after looking through my 2004 copy of teen vogue. There was a fashion spread of tweed blazers worn with form fitting tees and jeans. Well, I'm definitely not a jeans type of girl so I knew my organza rosette skirt would couple perfectly with my tweed blazer. I added my studded Collin Stuart pumps and leather gloves for a little bit of edge.
