       Hello dears! I wanted to share some pictures from an event I attended this past Thursday.

     The event was held at Twisted Fiction Studio in New Orleans and showcased the Pre-Fall 
  '14  Capsule Collections of Amanda DeLeon (above) and Blackout. by Ashlie Ming (below).

      I've been attending Amanda's showings for about 2 seasons now and every show has been
 nothing short of amazing. Her extreme attention to detail, use of leather and other textured 
 materials and imaginative silhouettes has made her one of my favorite local designers and I 
 leave each show anxious to see what next season has in store!  My favorite look from this
 collection was the simple back dress. So simple, classy, and versatile. I would scoop it up in 
 about a minute!

             Oh, and did I mention the jewelry used to accessorize both collections was Mignon

       I've also fallen in love with Blackout, a contemporary women's clothing line that is based in
  New Orleans and designed by Ashlie Ming. 

       I adore everything about her line. Everything from the basic colors to the way she styled the
  models' jewelry and hair. My favorite thing about the pieces are that they are easy to wear and
  can be incorporated into any woman's wardrobe. Choosing a favorite was quite challenging 
  seeing as I (obviously) had several. The black shift dress, above, would look lovely with a 
  number of things. Then there's the chic white dress with the back obi belt and the all-black 
  rocker-chic ensemble with the black pointed metallic-tipped heels... I just love all of them and 
  they need to get into my closet. Like, right now.
