Brunch and Style Party @ Style Room 326

Style Room 326 Brunch and Style

I spent the first weekend of this year at the Brunch and Style Party at Style Room 326Style Room 326 is the first of its kind members only wholesale, retail fashion showroom for women.  Owner Teresa Wilkes Washington hosted a group of fashionable, professional women for an afternoon of brunch, mimosas and fashion conversation.  It was an awesome experience.

Each participant was asked to bring an item of clothing that they had not worn.  Teresa and the other women in attendance provided excellent fashion advice on how to style the pieces and offered suggestions on how and where to best wear the selected items.  It was like having a group of your closest best friends in your closet helping you pull outfits together.  Did I mention that there was also endless mimosas?

In addition to talk about fashion and proper foundational garments (all of us women need that conversation at least once or twice in our lives), there was a makeup artist on hand to assist us in trying out different looks with our makeup.  Honestly, no matter how old you are what women doesn’t enjoy playing or experimenting in makeup from time to time.  Remember the mimosas?

All of us let the event with wonderful parting gifts which included a membership to the showroom.  I will definitely be using my membership this year.  There are some excellent options and the opportunity to shop in an environment where there are no crowds or overbearing sales people makes the shopping experience more enjoyable for me.  If that is your type of shopping I recommend that you stop by Style Room 326.  I cannot guarantee that there will be mimosas, but there were mimosas at the Brunch and Style Event.

If you have never been to Style Room 326, I suggest you go by, take a look at the amazing fashion they have and sign up for your membership.  The membership is affordable, so don’t worry about breaking the bank.  If you follow Teresa or the showroom on social media you will always see Teresa modeling pieces that are available in the showroom, pieces that you will not see on everyone.

Style Room 326 offers many benefits to its members.  The ability to gain first access to exclusive fashion shows, shopping for classic, timeless pieces for your wardrobe and the ability to do so in an environment that evokes fabulous is what Style Room 326 offers.  Teresa has done an amazing job of curating a fashion experience, that will have you coming back for more and waiting for the hottest new arrivals.  If you have a passion for fashion, then Style Room 326 should be at the top of your shopping list.

Style Room 326 is located at 1722 W. Belmont Ave., Chicago or visit their website http://www.styleroom326.com

The MET Gala

If you are a fan of fashion as I am, you were probably waiting with baited breath as the photos and red carpet looks from the MET gala were rolled out last week.  I was so excited to see who was wearing what and the looks came together.  From the makeup to the fashion to the drama from the looks that was created it was a great night for fashion and an even greater night for fashion fans.

The Met Ball or the Met gala is a fundraising event where designers, celebrities and models come out to show the world their fashion choices and fabulosity.  The event has been ongoing since 1946 and has become the fashion event of the year.  The event is always held on the first Monday in May at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.  The theme for this year was ‘Heavenly Bodies: Fashion and the Catholic Imagination” introducing the newest exhibition to the museum curated by Andrew Bolton. The fashions for this year were right on point with this theme.   The hosts for this years gala were Rihanna, Amal Clooney, Donatella Versace, Anna Wintour, and Stephen and Christina Schwarzman.

I am going to show my picks for the following categories:  Black, Gold, Men of Met and Legs for days, Aging Gracefully and I will close with my favorite look of the night.  (Images from vogue.com)

Aging Gracefully

These women are aging gracefully.  Well let me be specific, J. Lo never ages at all.  Kris Jenner is always classy so is Sarah Jessica Parker.  Cindy Crawford is ageless.  Linda Carter will always be Wonder Woman to me and she looks great as does Brooke Shields.

My Favorite Look of the Evening

Met 2018-51-kendall

Kendall Jenner was simply stunning.  I loved everything about this top to toe white.  Complimented by the sleek hair, diamond earrings and gloves.  It was just the right amount of everything.  Simple yet bold and classic.  Hands down my favorite look of the evening.

Be Blessed, Be Fabulous!
