I hope you're all having a fabulous weekend.
Kansas City Fashion Week last night ...eh. I wasn't sure what to expect, but overall I left disappointed (enough so that I didn't bother going tonight). I don't want to totally whine about it because I'm sure a lot of people spent a lot of time setting it up and are proud of it. I wasn't expecting New York - I get that its obviously a different ballgame. But it was disorganized. Which is my biggest pet peeve at events. Dont start 45 minutes late, figure out your technology issues before people arrive and don't put 'cocktails provided' in the ticket sales information when all that means is that you will provide a bar where I can buy a shitty dixie cup of wine for $7.
The fashion itself ... I caught two shows by local boutiques that just weren't my style - but still fun to see. And then two shows by local designers that were more interesting, even if I didn't necessarily love the outfits, they were unique.
I might go back for an hour or two tomorrow. We'll see. All in all, I'm not sure if I'd go or not if they do it again - I'd like to think it will get better. The cocktail thing really pissed me off haha, you don't tease me about free cocktails.
Don't mean to be a downer - I'm pumped that people are putting on new events like this around the city - and I hope they get their act together and this event continues in the future.
Otherwise a good weekend so far - some yummy 'oops' wine, grace found a new favorite toy, and we have some hydrangeas in our kitchen to really up the spring vibe.
I decided not to wear the new ruffle dress for fear of being a little too dressed up last night. I've had this random outfit in my head for a while and decided to make it work. I have this big shiny skirt (the photo really doesn't show the extent of the shinyness) from some holiday party years ago and I really wanted to pair it with a plain white tshirt. Even now looking at the photos I'm not sure why I was all jazzed about it, but you just have to get that craving out I suppose? Added my favorite black heels and vintage 80s purse. voila - I believe this is my first 'what i wore' post and it feels very silly :) It won't be a regular occurrence but kind of fun once in a while?
