EVENT RECAP: Houston Vintage Preview Party

Monday, October 21, 2013

A few weeks ago, I attended the preview party for the Houston Vintage Festival. I've becoming more and more of a fan of vintage. Well at least when it comes to hair accessories! I love fascinators, and I do love the 1920s era of fashion with the drop-waist and flapper dresses! When I received the invite to come to the preview party I happily accepted! I'm so glad I went! The event was held at Odd Fellows Hall in the Heights area of Houston. I had never been to this location, and I'm always looking to check out new venues.  Outside there was a mobile photo booth and this fun entrance way to the party. Downstairs a few vintage-selling shops had set up...well shop, and I managed to make it out without buying anything, but not my blogger buddy Heather! Haha, she left with a cool vintage handbag. 

After perusing the merchandise, I headed upstairs to the location of the main event. I thought the lights on the stairwell were really cool and I had to take a picture! :-) Upstairs I was transported to decades past! People were swing dancing and doing the Charleston and I found myself getting so jealous that I didn't know how to do those dances! They looked so fun! I apologize in advance for the low-quality of my photos. The genius that I am left my flash in the car, and the lighting was low for my camera, but I tried to take pics anyway! 

Around 8 or 9 the main attractions started, kicking off with a few numbers by the Hebcats, than a tango performance to Phantom of the Opera, and finishing up with a Burlesque dancer before the vintage fashion show.  

Next was the fashion show! Like I said I love me some fascinators and some drop-waist gowns, so I was excited to see what was in store on the Runway. I loved the looks! One of my favorites was this cut-out open-backed dress with fringe! Loved it! 

After the fashion show, the floor was opened up for more mingling and dancing and shopping and eating occurred downstairs. I had fun hanging out with Heather and Nanalli and meeting the lovely Dawn (who invited me) in person! Stay tuned for my posts covering the fashions seen at the preview party and for my coverage of the OFFICIAL HOUSTON VINTAGE FESTIVAL!
