I am the girl who has jumped off the deep end and fallen in love with fashion. I love prancing around town in an outfit that fits my body and personality. You can find me on the clearance racks of H&M and Express (two of my fav stores) and at your local thrift store. I love fashion but not breaking my pockets, so I’m always on the hunt for deals and steals!

I am a lover of all things fabulous and fashionable (but affordable). In my former life I was either a major diva or sensational drag queen. Not quite sure of which one, but my love of MAC make-up, accessories, music, hair and need to overly exaggerate has followed me to this life. I am a chameleon, so my style and hair is always changing to fit my multiple personalities. I am a reality/sitcom TV and celebrity gossip junkie as well.
Redress Raleigh revolutionized the fashion world with their Fall Fashion Expo & Market Place this past Saturday. Local designers placed quite the creative spin on the meaning eco-friendly by producing fresh, creative and innovative works of fashionable art.
The one day event allowed attendees to, not only spectate two separate fashion shows, but gave locals the opportunity to display their extraordinary works of trade. Jewelry, clothes and accessories worthy of editorial high-fashion spreads are presented with delicate precision - each with a touching story to tell.
With their quality printed designs, Symbology provided boutique inspired apparel to aid women’s rights across the globe. Fashion & Compassion help women overcome poverty and injustice for themselves and their family though stunning one of a kind necklaces and handbags. Good Girl Studios takes personable vintage jewelry and transforms it into striking ready to wear timeless statement pieces.
During the first fashion show, local vintage consignment shops dawned apparel that sent fashionistas down a blissfully chic memory lane. RetroTweet offered timeless elegance in evening gowns of various fabrics sashing down the runway, while Raleigh Vintage channeled every movement in women’s fashion from the freeness of the roaring 20s to the class and sophistication of the 1950s woman.
Local designers excelled as the second fashion show gave way to eco-friendly fashion and accessories. Manjri Lall’s beautifully personalized shawls gusted effortlessly down the runway in various shades and textiles. Tiffany Coley’s accessories were greeted with high-praise as eye-catching accessories dangle from the necks of models. JackWrap It brought fabulousness to recycled goods while models revealed lightweight, soft multifunction jackets composed of over 80% recycled drinking bottles. Appalatch gave the feel of American Outfitters, but without the outsourcings. With 100% of their materials gathered within the US, Appalatch delivered backpacker/outdoor chic without the middle man.
Seizing creativity, innovation and resourcefulness under one roof, Redress Raleigh successfully introduced the triangle to the next big thing.
