This past weekend I had the pleasure of meeting up with a girlfriend of mine to see the Urban vs Couture fashion show. It was a held at 595 North which is a nice event space in West Midtown. It was a rainy day so I decided to finally break out a rain coat I got at Tootsie’s in Buckhead during their end of summer sale. It’s such a statement piece with the bright colors and crazy prints. My first instinct was to play it safe with a monotone outfit but decided to try mixing prints by wearing a navy striped shirt and pop of color accessories.
What do you think?
I arrived early to get a good seat and a few snaps before the show started. They also had a cute little pop-up shop with vendors from a variety boutiques.
The first designer, Gayla Rogers, was probably my favorite show. Her clothes were beautiful, flattering, and well constructed.
The crop top is so hot right now and I love the pairing with a fitted maxi skirt!

The audience enjoyed several musical and dance performances throughout the night.
Then the night took a different turn with some out-of-this-world designs by Avantoooh Glam Squad! These designs were absolutely NOT practical, but extremely innovative and sexy.
Yes….these are faux nails that go down to the floor.
This is crazy, right? Sorry for some of the blurry photos. It was difficult to capture good still photos of the moving models.
All in all it was a fun night!
