So this evening I had a great time. What started out as something that sounded fun in theory, but I wasn’t sure how much I’d get into the actual fashion show itself was really great. A friend found an opportunity to attend a special Fashion Show at a mall in Nashville, where cupcakes and champagne were offerred, but they also had the enticement of the first 100 to register got $200 gift bags. Well, of course, the gift bag would have made it SUPER! When we got the email we hadn’t been selected for the gift bag, it was a bummer, but we ended up still opting to go.
Now let me stop here. Going out on a ‘week night’ to just have conversation with a friend, was reason enough to have a good evening. But I was pleasantly surprised by my enjoyment of the fashion show. Tips/pointers were given out about the upcoming season/trends, and I enjoyed seeing the different looks on the models as they came out in their Ann Taylor attire.
The rest of the evening was filled with a little window shopping at bookstores for my friend to pick up this book and then a quick bite of dinner at Panera ( oh, how I wish there was a Panera in my town) and then our ride home.
All in all it was a nice, refreshingly chilly evening that allowed me an opportunity to get to know a friend better and just laugh, have a good time.
I love my husband for being so understanding and making evenings like this possible!
