Sunday Night Chic

Last night I rolled myself off the couch and headed out to my second Boston Fashion Week event, Sam Mendoza’s showing at Rocca in the South End. It was the perfect end to the weekend and the best thing to pump me up for upcoming events.

Like I said on twitter, anyone who thinks Boston isn’t stylish was proven wrong. It was absolutely packed and everyone looked great. No North Face, Patagonia, uggs, or Lily Pulitzer in sight. I was busy wrestling with my purse, jacket, camera, and glass of prosecco (yum), so I couldn’t stalk individuals for outfit pics. But imagine heels, heels, and more heels. Layered rock-n-roll silver necklaces and nature-inspired jewelry. Gorgeous afros, blondes with waves, and bangs on nearly everyone. Preppy college style taken to the next level with letterman’s jackets and cardigans. Lots of silk and patterns.

So, yeah beautiful people, beautiful clothes. And a lovely collection from Sam Mendoza. He has quite the loyal following in Boston and everyone seemed very impressed with his newest work. It was a very small collection shown my models lounging on a set, surrounded by persian rugs and bottles of champagne. The majority of the collection was beautiful gowns, but I loved the drapey tops and casual pants the most. I got a few photos of the collection with my tiny and very old point-and-shoot. Ugh. A new compact camera is the newest item on a long list of things I want to purchase. Where oh where is my sugar daddy??

    Loving the soft draping of the fabric, dewy make-up and strong eyes on the models. Sensuality is the word! Gorgeous!

    Nice to see local events. I’ve been getting out more in my local area too since I just moved. Lovely photos. I absolutely hate struggling with all my bags and a drink haha. My last event I was smart. I had a tiny bag, camera bag, a friend, and a drink. Tiny bag when inside the camera bag and when I had to take a photo drink went to the friend lol.

    that looks like so much fun! and i really like when fashion shows are in this format- it’s so much easier to appreciate the clothes this way than in a runway show.
