Big Hats, Big Business

I've learned that building a brand you can't possibly do everything alone. Gaining resources through networking is a vital component to success. I was invited to a private brunch event at Upstream Restaurant hosted by some of the founders of Women Who Network, Terri Craft and Marcelle Collins-Clyburn.  All of the fab attendees sported elegant hats to play on the theme of southern belle meets Kentucky Derby. I opted for a white hot look with a playful focus on a textured skater dress and a white hat with silver embellishments. We all dined in an intimate private room where we sat round circle and introduced ourselves highlighting our credentials and what exactly we do. I was excited to learn more about each of the women and hear their passion about women uniting and becoming an united force. Women Who Network, host a string of social networking events (normally hosted at Caviar Nightlife) where women can mix, mingle, shop from various vendors, sip a cocktail, and ultimately network with like driven and ambitious women. This event was by far my favorite for the professional connections I was able to make to take my brand to the next level. If you're in the Charlotte area follow Women Who Network on Instagram for information on their next events.

Flawless

Athletic wear is such a big fashion trend. The beauty of this trend is that it can be dressed up or down. You've seen me rock this trend several times because it's my absolute favorite and the most fun to style. I wore a baseball jersey from Fat Medusa with some cool details on the back - the infamous Beyonce song "Flawless" and Michael Jordan's popular jersey number, 23. I paired it with a white skirt with mesh inserts to continue the color scheme. I love mixing textures so my look of the night was completed with a denim oversized pouch and lace booties.

Weekend Fun In ATL

Weekend getaways are the absolute best, especially when it involves a friend's birthday. My friend and I went to Atlanta for the weekend for some no-sleep fun! When I touched down on Friday, I checked in out the bustling Hilton Atlanta and went straight to Snob Life Studio to get my hair done. I've always wanted to check out Ming Lee's gorgeous salon. The interior decor was so chic and luxurious from the booths the stylists are stationed at to the infamous glitter steps to the faux tufted wallpaper. Paris gave me her infamous P-Curls. I also had the officially chance to meet the self-made mogul, Ming. The rest of my weekend consisted of clubbing comes up until the sun, shopping at Lenox Square and in Little 5 Points, and dining at unique restaurants to Atlanta (I finally tried Thai food).  Follow me on Four Square to see all the cool places I checked in at.
