The Burst of Elegance Fashion Show

The Burst of Elegance Fashion Show

Last Saturday, I was invited to the Burst of Elegance Fashion Show at the beautiful Motor City Casino Hotel. This charity event is hosted by the Top Ladies of Distinction, Inc. Detroit Chapter and helps contribute to the Top Teens of America Scholarship Fundraiser.

This was such a fun event with a yummy brunch, lively dancers, cool fashion shows with themes from the 60s to the 2000s, standup comedy, and even a former Real Housewives of Atlanta (She is from Detroit ), Kenya Moore as the co-host. It is very cool to learn that this is a sold out show every year and this is its 29th year of helping our local youth. Once again, I am always so touched by how much people in this country do for others who are less fortunate.

During this event, there were some familiar designers who we met before who were showing their new lines or works. You can watch the super short videos below for the hair guru Kevin Carter‘s hair show.

The next one, is one of my favorite fashion designers Keisha Danielle Belcher and her line is called KDC. I am a long time fan of the sleek look of her work. And the even better news is that I’ve recently talked with Keisha and she may be guest blogging right here at colorandgrace.com. So check back later for more details.

I finally started to use Snapchat and my user name is colorandgrace. You can see a lot of behind the scese, my daily working outfits and more. Hopefully see you there! 😉 Also please click around the links and ads so I can make a few cents to keep this blog running. Thank you so much for your great support! 🙂

Other than those old friends, I already discovered some amazing new designers as well. My new favorite has to be Lynette Halalay and her line called Knit Sew Fabulous. Below are a few standouts from this show.

Now let’s talk about today’s OOTD. You may remember the black lace-up bodysuit, Studded Shoulder Grey Denim Blazer as shown below I got from the Lookbook Store. This bodysuit is only $22 and the jacket is $45.

Today I am wearing this black lace romper which is also from them. It has a very sexy open back but I am not that adventurous yet. So I used this lace bra to cover up a little bit. It is only $27 now. I am 5 feet and 124 pound, I wear size 6. I could go with a size 4 but I like it a little bit loose.;)

Last Sunday I was invited to this fun event at Guys N Gals in Michigan which was called the 2nd Style Chops Competition. Totally there were 5 local fashion bloggers who participated.

2nd Style chops Competition

We each got one full body mannequin and a half body (neck to waist) one to work on. The second one in the row was mine. My real job is a teacher so I know better than most people that nobody likes to be in the front row! We arrived at the store and my husband/photographer instantly felt better. There was a tray of homemade cookies set out for the customers and contestants. He said he had to keep his strength up to hold his camera steady. The owner greeted us and explained the rules of the competition. Then we were told about the 3 themes that we needed to work on later. They were boho chic, sporty and date night. We got a short time to walk around the store to brain storm what we would like to pick for each of our looks.

The owner then put 20 minutes on her timer and told us to create 2 cohesive looks based on the theme we were given. The first one was boho chic. And below are the results from Round 1.

After the 20 minutes were up, all the people in the store were able to vote. They scored our looks from 1 to 10 and then put their ballots into the red cups with our names on. At the end the store owner totaled up the numbers for each blogger.

The second look was date night. I always feel that if I just pick a dress for any look, it is kind of lazy or cheating. A dress is pretty complete all by itself and doesn’t need much extra to style. Instead, I like to use separate pieces to play around with and also for layering. It was quite interesting that all of us contestants picked black or black and white for this round. Since I love colors, I had to add that cute makeup bag for the finishing touch.

The third look was the sporty theme. If you know me, you will know I will never just wear jeans or tees. I always love to add more feminine and polished touches to my look.

I didn’t win, but there were certainly no losers in this bunch. Every blogger did a great job and the extra bonus was that I had so much fun! 🙂 This competition really got my brain spinning. We had to react so fast! I am pretty good at dressing myself, but it’s a very different game when you’re under the gun and dressing the mannequins with a much younger crowd as the voters! It was great to see how others styled the looks and learn from each other.

Below are more looks for today’s outfit.
