Last week I was invited to attend the Strictly Fashion Strictly Feminine fashion show at Ilio DiPalo’s restaurant. I love going to fashion shows, so of course I accepted!

The show was full of many local designers such as Just Be by Betsey, Floyd Baker, Holly Henderson, Katie Gariey, and Chavonne Cantry just to name a few.  It wasn’t really publicized so the show was not well attended, but I was honored to be invited and to see all of the hard work that these designers have put in to making their clothing and accessories.

Lauren Hall, who hosts the local show Winging It, was the hostess for the first half of the show, and she looked super cute in her dress from TT New York.

There were SO many looks in the show that I couldn’t post every single one of them, but here are a few from the different designers! I liked that each designer had a different feel to their collection, and you could really get their personality from looking at their clothing.

My favorite dress of the evening is that little black and white number above. I would wear that everywhere!

I really hope they advertise more if they decide to put on this fashion show next year.  These designers work so hard and deserve to have their pieces seen by a large audience!

Thank you very much, Floyd, for inviting me to your fashion show.  It was a great night out!
