Soulful sounds fashion show

Last weekend I was invited to the Soulful Sounds Fashion Show which was staged with the goal of raising money for the Children’s Hospital of Michigan. I am always a supporter for all kinds of charity events and admire the producers who are willing to do so much work for a good cause. The time and effort these people put in is incredible. It makes me tired just thinking about it!

This event was the dream of and produced by Kiera Johnson Hughes and hosted by Shay Omygod. No, really, that’s her name and she is a blast! The designers and models came in all sorts of ages, shapes and sizes. There were the usual “too tall and too thin to be real people” type to others who were a lot more like the rest of us. You know, the kind of people who don’t much care if it’s milk chocolate or dark chocolate as long as it’s chocolate! In other words, just normal people. We all gathered on a Sunday afternoon to support our local kids.

It was good to see many familiar faces during the show. Those young and rising models are everywhere in Michigan’s fashion shows. They work hard and I really look up to them. In fact, I have to, most of them are about a foot taller than me! Now you can see how short I really am. 😉

There are some very talented and very young fashion designers and models as well.

Something is really different about this show. Kiera told me her goal was to celebrate the spirit of real life people. That being said, some of the models are not the regular models in the traditional way. They are real people who dare to celebrate their own beauty. Seeing them strutting their stuff on the runway with style and attitude was fun and inspirational. The whole feel of the show was “if I can do this, so can you.”

I was so touched by this amazing women in the photo below, her name is Lisa. She is a designer and she has also been undergoing cancer treatment while still working to make her mark on the fashion industry. She definitely earned my respect for her generosity, strength and caring for others. This was Keira’s first attempt in producing a fashion show and there were a few times when it didn’t go quite as smooth as she would have liked, but she worked her tail off all evening and earned a solid A for effort. I have no doubt that her next production will be bigger, better, bolder and brighter! I know I’m looking forward to it.

New Chic Vintage Floral Pleated coat dress review

New Chic Vintage Floral Pleated coat dress review

A fit and flare coat dress is always my best friend for my 5 feet nothing and a quarter petite frame. I really love this Vintage Floral Pleated Single Breasted Womens Coat, the color and shape are just what I am looking for. This beauty is from an online store called NEW CHIC..

This year I changed my shopping strategy. I’m now going to concentrate on quality over quantity. Which is to say I will purchase more high end, iconic pieces to mix with my normal wardrobe. I have to say, I love those mixtures of high and low. This Vintage Floral Pleated Single Breasted Women Coat is only about $34 now, but after I paired it with my new Louis Vuitton bag and that teal fur wrap, the whole outfit looks more polished.

The fabric of this coat dress is pretty thin compared with most winter coats. Although it has a lining to help insulate you from the cold and wind, it is certainly better suited to be a perfect spring or fall coat for us poor folks in Michigan. On average this has been a quite mild winter so far but Mother Nature still likes to show her attitude sometimes. It was much more seasonable the day I took these photos so I wore a sweater underneath to keep me warm. I waited for about 20 days to receive the dress since it is shipped from China. And please note that the sizes you see on the website are also Asian. I wear size 2 or 4, or small in most American clothing but for this dress I ordered size large. The large fits me very well. Now I understand a bit better why my friends mention I’ve gotten fat when I visit them in China!

A couple more things you should know if you want to order this dress for yourself. The fabric is pretty easy to get wrinkled so make sure you have a steamer or iron handy. By the way, I bought an inexpensive steamer a while ago and I use it A LOT! It can really save an outfit that’s been folded and stored or has just arrived in the mail. I also resewed all the buttons on because they were barely attached. And the shipping fee is higher than most of the stores in America. It cost me about $15 to get it here; so keep that in mind.

But overall I am pretty happy with this coat dress. I can see myself wearing this piece very often. Good luck with your shopping and don’t forget to join the linkup party below.
