A few weeks ago, I was contacted by a fabulous Atlanta stylist, Shaye Strager, to be part of a fashion show. The designer – Rebecca Taylor (who I heart), so I was sooo excited for the opportunity. Rebecca Taylor’s team is on somewhat of a tour, going to multiple cities debuting the new fall/winter collection through fashion shows. The team we worked with had just come from a Miami store opening the day before.
The theme of the fashion show was ‘Ones to Watch’ in Atlanta. Eight “models” were selected, all from different professional industries. I represented the communications field.
When I went in for fittings a few days before the show, I was given a beautiful black lace-like top and leather skirt paired with ysl booties. I loved the outfit! So cute and so me.

But on the day of the show, I was given a totally different outfit, which I thought was even better! It was a blue-colored vegan snakeskin dress. It was heaven. So stretchy and comfortable. The team thought the black outfit was too dark. I laughed because that’s exactly what my mom says when I wear black. And as pretty as the dress was, the shows were equally as cute.
Links for both are below.
Hair and makeup was done at Steve Hightower salon in Buckhead before the show. The look was pin-straight hair and minimal makeup.
The show was held at the brand new AC hotel in Buckhead. I drive past it just about every day on my way to Brookhaven. Its right next to Phipps Plaza and it’s so modern and trendy + the room where we got ready was amazing.
Each girl did one look as Shaye introduced us and read our bios.
The president of Rebecca Taylor (who was soooo freakin cute) spoke briefly and then we had drinks and bites on the patio, complete with a Rebecca Taylor pop-up shop.
Such a fun night!
