Erin and I both chose leopard shoes from DSW's vast leopard offerings (um, I need these booties stat and someday, Nora is going to need these), can you blame us? Mine are wedges (here) and Erin's are kitten heels (here), so we were both able to be the hostesses with the mostesses and on our feet for the 2+ hour event.

Spoiled Little Mama by Berthier De La Cruz had a Spanish flare and unexpected pops of colors in his designs. I was giddy over the under-skirt colors and the pop they made with the movement of the fabric. This pieces were all so well crafted!
I've been a huge fan of SuShe by J. Tracy since 2012 when I saw her collection, highlighted by an amazing mustard yellow velvet dress, at KCFW. I love how on trend, but unique all her styles are. This cage top is so well made, it could last years as a classic, and the updated spins to the classics, like black and white, is refreshing. I definitely want to get my hands on the tribal skirt.
It was hard for me not to put up every single photo from Elda Doamekpo for AFIELDA's collection. It was all so good, and perfectly coordinated, but not boring at all. Even though the fabric was consistent, the design, craftsmanship and styles were far from repetitive. I was completely in awe through all the looks, wanting...craving a piece in my own closet (like that perfect A-line skirt?!?!). So good!
And probably the best show of the night, on of pure art... Angela of Get Plastered's work was amazing. Breathtaking. I had so much fun watching this show, that I wish I could watch it again and again. The metallic makeup that accented each look was so beautiful. The headpieces belong in a museum. And the designs were so detailed. My favorite look was actually one inspired off a peacock, but my photo just didn't do it justice. Thankfully for professional photogs with better equipment... you can see a pic of that look here!
