Simon Fashion Now Cocktail Hour

Cadillac Gals, Lynne Gabriel and I having fun on the Spring Carpet
Today's post is all about the fun my friends and I had at the cocktail hour before the fashion show. Lynne, (pictured above with me), was the other Houston Fashion Blogger to receive a Cadillac. So of course we had to take a pic together being the Cadillac girls. Everyone thought it was so funny how I matched the Spring-colored carpet, so I definitely took a bunch of pictures in this general area.

YooMi, with Cadillac, led us to the event space.  On our way I snapped the below picture of the event space from above. It looked so pristine and pretty, and I couldn't wait to enter!

Awesome cool chairs
Checking in none other than Sydney & Chloe Dao

Then Kuriko, with Cadillac, let us down the Spring Colored Carpet and at first all I saw was the DJ above the huge Cadillac sign....but then, upon clearing the drapery...
BAM! Full cocktail service on either side. That was so hot!

We spent a lot of the cocktail hour sipping on yummy drinks, eating dumplings from Gigi's and taking lots and lots of pictures! Haha, we are bloggers after-all what do you expect? YooMi and Kuriko arranged for us to chat with Jacque Ellis Bio at 8:30 on her vision for Simon Fashion Now.  It was great to talk to one of the creative minds behind the event. Tomorrow's post will feature our chat with Jacque and more background on Simon Fashion Now

WIth my girls! Lynne & Monica
My first time having a place card for myself on the seat in the front row of a Fashion Show! Hopefully it won't be the last!

I met both of these lovely twins at the Blogger Preview Event last week. One works for Simon's PR Firm, and the other is a manager at White House|Black Market. They are super cute!
