"Models" for In Bloom Boutique getting ready before the show. Love these ladies!!
My trusty photographer, a/k/a my Dad, snapped the following three photos of me in the coral shift dress prior to the show. Both of my parents came to the show!DRESS: In Bloom Boutique // EARRINGS: In Bloom Boutique // SHOES: Steve Madden
My friend, Blake Lannom of Blake Lannom Photography, was one of the event photographers and snapped the below photos of me in the blue maxi dress after the show. It was so great to see him and catch up!
Hello, friends! I hope you had a fabulous weekend!
The night began with yummy hors d'oeuvres and refreshments from local vendors for everyone to enjoy during the silent auction. Three local boutiques provided runway looks for summer 2015. I wore two gorgeous dresses from In Bloom Boutique. In Bloom Boutique has SO many fashion-forward new looks for spring and summer, and the best part is that everything is very affordable (hello, tax season!). I saw so many gorgeous options that I would totally wear to weddings, summer barbecues, girls' nights, and on vacation. Plus, I love how they offer FREE shipping on their website! Definitely check them out- I love to support local businesses and I can tell you firsthand that the mother and daughter co-owners of In Bloom Boutique are wonderful and are some of the nicest people you will ever meet. :-)
Prior to the show, I had never heard of MSA. I did some research, and from what I have gathered, MSA is a rare progressive neurodegenerative and impairs the autonomic nervous system, which regulates many important bodily functions. Some of these functions include: blood pressure, heart rate, digestion, and the ability to sweat. Also, MSA causes muscle tremors and rigidness. One of the women with a relative suffering from the disease described it as "absolutely horrible....it is the equivalent of being trapped inside your own body with no voice."
Over the last four years, this event has raised more than $14,000.00 for MSA!
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful Monday! Be sure to follow along on Bloglovin' and Instagram! :)
