Cupcakes & Champagne

Last weekend I had the pleasure of going to a great event.  I had a ball eating cupcakes and drinking champagne while networking with different vendors.  The Curvy Confidential Swap II event was hosted by Emiene Wright. Everyone brought at least one fabulous item from their closet to swap for another, and all the left over clothes were donated to in-need plus size woman.  The event was hosted at Red @28, a cute intimate lounge.  I wanted to wear a chic, fashion forward outfit so I paired a black blazer and accented my look with a royal blue bodycon skirt with coral pumps.  Fringe is very on trend for 2012, so I cut up my shirt and made my top (DIY coming soon). Also my sister, Caress (visit her Twitter here), was in town and came with me.  I styled her in yellow skinny jeans, a bleach denim oxford shirt (another DIY shirt as seen here), and brown chunky heel shoes. Our outfits are both fashion forward yet completely different!  Check out the fashions and fabulous ladies I met below:)
