I was asked to be a guest speaker at a NYFWmixer last week. Avielle Amor asked me to attend her New York coming out party of you will and speak briefly about fashion and style. The focus was gear towards being stylish with short natural hair without concealing it.
A lot of times as a fellow naturalista we tend to conceal our hair for special events and wear a wig or braids when we are going on a date or interview. I want you all to know this is not the case. It is absolutely possible to be fashionable and wear a dress and heels with a short natural coif.
I had no idea what to wear to the event myself and ended up pairing a green jumpsuit with a floral duster. I loved how it turned out and decided to share my outfit with you guys along with a quick recap of the event.
I was so excited to see Erica (Glamzmore) in attendance along with a lot of beautiful sisters who came to show Avielle love.
I also styled Avielle for the event in this Nasty Gal cape sleeve mini dress and gold sandals.i personally think she looked beautiful especially with her short tapered fro.
I purchased my jumpsuit from a local Queens Boutique by the name of Tick Tock. The sleeveless jumpsuit was paired with a floral duster I picked up from the Trend section of H&M. I added a statement necklace with similar tones and a simple tan pointed heel to finish the look.
I was so happy to have some of my friends come out to support me in my first event as a speaker. I look forward to more events like this in the coming year and hope you enjoyed. If you were able to attend or are sad that you missed the event j would love to hear about it in the comeents below. Until next time, Happy Shopping.
