So I attended this year’s installment of Cocktails with Claire, hosted by Claire Sulmers and Miss Diddy LA. The panel was rich with guest speakers like Yandy Smith (Love and Hip Hop), Ty Hunter (Celeb Wardrobe Stylist), Angela Yee (Radio Personality) and countless more.
I was finally able to sample brunch bites from Chef Jeff Catering and business partner Tasia (Master Decorator). The chicken and waffles, French toast, mini sliders, and Mac and cheese were all so memorable! I would not know how to describe the flavor you just had to be there! SO GOOD!
One of the most interesting parts of attending these networking events for me is meeting new people and creating new bonds with like-minded fashionistas. This purple haired beauty is a radio personality Angel White from Rochester, NY and drove down to get advice from the entertainment panel.
It is always good to connect with people we see at these events all year long and catch up away from social media. We get to have a meeting of the minds and talk about how we can collaborate our efforts to make our individual business better.
This was a fashion driven event and the attendees did not skimp on style! I loved this monochromatic look on Avielle Amor (beauty blogger and YouTube content creator). The sun coming over the lofts roof top made for an awesome outfit post.
Staff writer for Fashion Bomb Daily Marsha Badger looked amazing in white and later changed into a sleek black outfit for the second half of the festivities.
There were tons of vendors at the second half of the event. The sip and shop had body care products like Skin Buttr (pictured above) and fashion and accessories as well.
Fashion, Style and all they have to offer! Which of these looks is your favorite! They look like an amazing girl group, I promise this was not planned! But these ladies looked amazing.
During the break I ventured into midtown Manhattan for a quick wardrobe change for MUA Ace more fondly known as Delightful Ace. We decided to go for a quick monochromatic look to match the cobalt blue heels she wore to part one of Cocktails with Claire.
I think it’s safe to say that the matching set and monochrome was the theme of the night as Sammy B (wardrobe designer) attended Cocktails in one of her latest designs. We talked a little about what was coming in the future for her collection. I can’t wait to see what she does next.
Black Girl Magic was also present at Saturday’s event and I was glad to catch up with the girls.
What I wore:
Crop Top & Pants : ZARA
Necklace : ALDO Accessories
Shoes: Shoemint (Years Ago)
