STAFW Day TWO

STAFW Day TWO

Ok, where do I start. Last night was the "official" beginning of St. Augustine Fashion Week Season 3. It was truly an amazing experience and I am so honored to be a blogger for the show. Now, let's talk about last night's show. It was held at the Lightner Museum in St. Augustine, FL. It's such a beautiful, old, historic location with staircases on each side. I love a staircase! Outside there was a bar (the most important thing!) and high boy tables perfect for mixing and mingling. Upon entering the doors, Old City Magazine (local St. Augustine magazine) was there to take everyone's picture which made you feel like a true VIP. As part of the press, my seat was in VIP. It was a true VIP experience. I had an awesome view of all the models and designs. I also sat next to a writer and editor for Jacksonville Magazine (pictured below), She was such a lovely person and just gorgeous! When the show started, the music was blasting and you could feel the excitement in the air. I love how the show was set up. Each designer collection was given its just due. Each model came out one by one, photo op, then all the way around. At the end of the set, all the models for that designer came out as well as the designer themselves. Round of applause, such a good job!! 

I thought it was cool that they incorporated the Bartram Trail Fashion Academy which featured designs from high school students. All I can say is that those students are super talented! STAFW also is supporting local charities through this fashion show. Supporting and helping one another is so close to my heart. This year the charities benefitting are: PACE, Lightner Museum Hurricane Relief Fund and St. Augustine Youth Services (SAYS). 

Continuing on with the show, there was an intermission and then two more designers and models took the stage. Ya'll this was like a true fashion show experience. I just loved it and had a blast. Take a look at all the photos and let me know what you think in the comment section. Peep my thigh high slit, I'm kind of obsessed LOL.

Thank you for reading and more tomorrow from Day 3 of STAFW.
