Houston Fashion Loves Posh Couture

Last night I was fortunate to attend the Mercedes Benz North Houston sponsored charity fashion show event put on by Houston's very own Posh Couture Magazine.  The fashion show took place at the swanky Venue located downtown on Houston's Main Street and was glamorously hosted by Channel 39's, Mia Gradney.  The event's main purpose was to promote Posh Couture Magazine's  2011 calendar and the local boutiques that participated in it's creation.  All proceeds from the tickets to the fashion show would go to support the charity, Dress for Success which helps provide less fortunate women with the proper professional attire they might need for job interviews and career opportunities.  Attendees were also encouraged to bring any professional attire they may no longer be using to donate to this wonderful cause. So you better believe I had quite a few things to donate since I left my corporate days behind! I attended this fabulous event with my new friend and Houston blogger, Monica Guerrero-Abney of Classy & Fabulous.  We couldn't have had a better time and it was actually our first fashion outing together as bloggers and friends!  

This is a picture of Publisher/CEO of Posh Couture Magazine, Erica Harding in a trendy LBD by Cheeky Vintage Boutique.

Both me and Monica at the show!



As you know, I am usually out and about with my amazing cousin and photographer, Shan, but she was busy working on photo shoots this week, so all the photos were taken by moi! I busted out the tripod again so you could take a look at my complete outfit! I actually bought this dress at UO for $9.99! 


UO dress, Express tights and necklace, Kensie shoes

These shoes deserve their own close up, I have been dying for some purple suede shoes and I found these at T.J. Maxx!

Those shoes are GORGEOUS! I love TK Maxx (as we call it here in the UK) and got some gorgeous boots from there the other day - just what I've also been looking for for ages! Your dress was a bargain too!
