Today's Everyday Fashion: BRINK Fashion Show

How I planned it vs. How I wore it

Last Friday I got to participate in a really cool event - BRINK magazine and vitaminwater's uncapped Fashion Show. They picked four local designers to compete in a runway show, and assigned each designer a mentor (a la Tim Gunn). I played mentor to designer Eliza Torres, who totally blew me away with her finished product and ultimately took home the grand prize (woo hoo!). It was a really fun night and I loved seeing the hours of preparation that went into the show beforehand (I was literally dressing models in a bathroom!). For the event I wore this Moda dress from MJR Sales that I've had for awhile but is comfy and felt right for the occasion. I originally considered doing something different and pairing the dress with brown, but at the last minute I switched to black shoes, purse and belt and kept it simple. It was a great night! :-)
