For the first time, all three of us got to go: daughters Rachelle and Michelle and yours truly. It was the Saturday night semi-annual, runway show of Kansas City Fashion week. I don’t think I’ve enjoyed the event more. Today’s post is covering just a little of that night, more of a photo-blog this time around.
This was the first time that Dr. Michelle has ever been to a Kansas City Fashion Week event. With all of us so busy, it is rare that just the three of us get to do something special like this together. And because I am the official family bag lady, three of my clutches got to come out and play!
So here we are on the red carpet. There are a few things I don’t care for in the picture: the graphic is not visible on my dress, and Michelle’s bag is in hiding.
Michelle is wearing one of her beloved Mimu Maxis, a scarf from Haute Hijab, and is carrying one of my vintage Rodo bags.
Rachelle’s outfit is making an encore performance. She and I collaborated on her palazzo pants (her graphic art and my sewing skills) and she’s carrying a gold Rodo clutch.
My dress is by almost local (St. Louis, MO) designer, Michael Drummond of Project Runway fame. My clutch is an Anthony Luciano (another 2nd Loved from eBay). My two necklaces are Cydney Ross’ Sticks and Stones, and a paper bead necklace from Uganda that I purchased through Project Lydia.
It was hard to take good photos but I snagged a few of some of my favorite looks and other designers who were showing.

It’s a wrap for this week. If your city has a fashion week, I recommend going. The energy and creativity at one of these events is just amazing.
And don’t forget, the 2nd Loved 1st Friday Linkup is all month-so if you have found that second hand gem, get it on, snap a picture, post on social media and linkup with us!
So adieu until next time and in the meantime….
