Yall! The Elegant Ladies of Nashville put on THE BOMB fashion show featuring some of the hottest designs I’ve ever seen! And to make it even better, all the designers were Nashville-based. You KNOW that makes me proud to see not only the city grow, but the creativity as well! Growth inside and out. The event was at Rocket Town and I got exclusive media VIP treatment, completed with a few small bites to eat, swag bag, and front row seating! If you guys missed the opportunity to showcase your work, or if you like to shop local, peep out some of Nashville’s up and coming designers, you WON’T want to miss out next year.
It was also cool to be part of the media and meet some of my blog family in person. -BLOGLOVE-
Just for you all, I have a video recapping some of my favorite looks of the evening. Click continue reading to see the video AND what I got in my swag back and a group photo of some of Nashville’s TOP Urban bloggers!
My-my-my so much has changed in Nashville. From what could be a residential home in North Nashville (off Buchannan) to a local pizza and beeria joint- Sim and Husky Pizza and Beeria. And not just any Nashville eaterie, but from the soft openings to the launch, Slim and Husky’s Pizza and Beeria has been a focal point for Nashville Natives and visitors alike. With the lines wrapping around the building and the scent of fresh ingredients in the air, Slim and Husky’s has become the catalyst to the budding Buchannan Arts District and eateries catering to the urban crowd. Rumor has it these guys studied pizza for months as they formulated their recipes, sauces, and toppings. These guys were serious about their pizza and I believe studying and learning your passion (especially if your name is on the business) will always pay off.
The Ballet Ball was a huge event and I intended to make the most of the day. After my first gig as an event host, I didn’t schedule a photographer and I missed out on capturing pictures of me in a makeup look I’ve never worn before. THIS time I was prepared.
The National Ballet is presenting it’s fundraising black-tie invite-only (kinda a big deal) event of the year Ballet Ball. My understanding of the event is that the guests are presented a seated dinner before the gala performance. At the same time as the invite only seated dinner, there is a separate hall for ticket purchasing guests to mingle and have cocktails and small bites – like a cocktail hour (for the younger crowd of “movers and shakers”).
Guess who was invited to cover the event?! Me! AND I get to attend a pre-rehearsal event two days before with an interview from a dancer and an artist. Sweet! So be sure to stay connected with me on social media (Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter )
to get the first look behind the scenes.
So again, what I’m gathering is there’s a separate baller’s only seated dinner, while the young folks( AKA “movers and shakers”) mix and mingle, then we ALL gather in the hall to watch a performance of Dance, Song, and Instruments, and at some point can dance the night away. (The PR lady literally repeated use the phrase “dance the night away” to describe the evening. now its stuck in my head) Never attended an event like this, let alone a BALL. No clue what to wear to a ball. But THIS GIRL is going to have fun figuring all this out. I was built for this! Can’t be too hard – find a dress, beat my face, introduce myself and brand because ITS WHO I AM and enjoy results! Great networking opportunity and night of amazing music for sure.
Super thrilled to be invited it’s an honor to be in the same room with such reputable names and brands. But that’s what I live to do!
