Last Weekend Recap: Style Week Pittsburgh Photo Shoot, Women's Expo Fashion Show and My Fabulous

Hey hey Thrifters!

Last weekend was EPIC! I got to manage the social media for Style Week Pittsburgh's during their fashion shoot for #iamstyle and I got to attend a fashion show for Pittsburgh's Women's Expo. What a fashionable weekend :) Here is a recap of my experiences-

Style Week Pittsburgh Fashion Shoot

Fashion stylists, Boutique owners, musicians, artist and community leaders were nominated by the Style Week Pittsburgh Ambassadors to be featured as #iamstyle influencers for Style Week. The theme this year is fashion meets innovation. I'm so excited to be part of Style Week this year! If you follow me on Facebook or IG you know I am an Ambassador for Style Week. Mark your calendars for August 17th- August 20th :) Tickets will be on sale soon! Go to StyleWeekPittsburgh.com for all the dets. And be sure to follow them on IG and Facebook to see the photos and images from the shoot. I'm having so much fun meeting movers and shakers in the fashion industry here in Pittsburgh.

Pittsburgh Women's Expo Fashion Show

I went to the Pittsburgh Women's Expo fashion show hosted my Shawna Solomon, founder of Exotic Hush. A boutique in Pittsburgh. Local fashion designers, stylists and models showed off their talents on the runway. I loved all the looks. From African inspired attire to chic evening attire. Debbie Norrel, Lifestyle Editor for the New Pittsburgh Courier, was the commentator for the evening and kept the audience engaged. I liked how she incorporated info about other up coming fashion events so all the fashionistas in the room can be in the know. She even announced Style Week Pittsburgh events :) Here is a video I made with some of the looks from the fashion show-

$1 Black Jump Suit? $1 Blue Gown? Yes, Please! -

So on to these $1 finds! In past posts I talked about my one dollar finds from the Avalon Exchange $1. Last weekend I got to wear two of my finds. The blue gown for the Style Week Pittsburgh photo shoot and a black jump suit. for the Fashion Show.

I'm so glade I found these diamonds in the rough at Avalon Exchange semi annual $1 sale. Oh yeah with my store credit these $1 finds were actually FREE!

Over all, last weekend was great :) I had so much fun. Want to know what I'm doing next? Follow me on IG, Facebook and Twitter to find out :)
