Masquerade? Nah.

So you've been invited to a theme party. Masquerade. And you regularly have an affinity for bling and shades. You and your date have a thing for black and white. Well, this happened to me. And there was NO WAY I was going to wear a masquerade mask to a informally formal function. When I say informally formal, I mean  to say most guys wore khakis and most girls wore rompers. Needless to say, in this, I was rather overdressed.

Not my best pic, but you get the point. 

The glasses of my date and I: 

I think I'm onto something here. Bling accessories! :) And I had a DIY moment a glued sequins in less than 20 minutes! Finally those faux ray bans from promotional giveaways have a purpose in my life! :)

Sinfully Fashionable With #FMDS

I'm not sure what I like most about fashion shows, the fashion or people watching? More or less I'm watching the people, watching people.

Does that make any sense?

I love it. Fashion shows give me such a rush!

 And fortunately for me I scored a front row seat (prime seating real-estate) and a swag bag! Which, thanks to our sponsors On A Whim, Chantilly Lace, Polished by Claire V., Mad Dog, etc. were filled with coupons and hygiene products! Thanks guys! :) And the pink tissue was a nice touch!

Ok, as a journalist, I'm not supposed to show partiality, but Kelsy Dominck's designs have inspired me ever since I modeled for her over 3 years ago.

This year, she won Best Senior Designer! And well deserved! This one's my favorite (because it's black, OBVS!):

And my favorite was hanging out with the models backstage beforehand! Especially my pageant sister Midori! (The currently reigning Miss Theta Iota also known as Miss Black and Gold!) And my favorite  Priya!

My two seat neighbors were the Roanoke Times Street Style Blogger David Verde and my plus one Souleymayne who just happens to be starting a fashion line himself! OESU!

PAUSE! Can I pay homage to the show's title: Sinful: A Fashionable Affair? All the designs were/are sinfully delightful! I was pleasantly surprised at every turn! And without further ado, here's what you came for, THE CLOTHES! ENJOY!
