Fashion Show Alert, Tampa Florida

Good morning my little crumb cakes & welcome to my blog! Doing some promoting today! As a new fashion blogger in Tampa I am always looking for other fashionistas {men included} to work with. My friend graciously stumbled across a page a few months back called “Modage” by designer Rebecca Fishel out of Seminole Heights, Florida. So just like I did with Tamy I took it upon myself to reach out & introduce myself. About a month later we met up for wine {Already my new BFF} & we hit it off. I mean when you put two girls who love fashion & wine together, chances are the title BFF is inevitable! Long story short, we started working together on her upcoming fashion show April 23. I offered my service to help market & style the show & she accepted, appreciatively!

Rebecca’s designs are modern vintage. How she does it… she goes into vintage consignment shops & finds the best of the best pieces & moderns them up by tailoring or adding different pieces. Not all of them are messed with, some are sold as-is. For someone like me who does not know vintage too well, I was in my glory.

Here’s the deets for the show:

  • When: April 23rd 5pm-9pm {or later}  
  • Where: Above the Salt Cafe 428 W Waters Ave, Tampa, FL 33604 (photos above taken here)

    Breakdown:

There will also be featured models in the show from the magazine Prolific Quarterly & the show will be featured in their May edition so keep your eyes peeled for that!

I asked Rebecca to bring me over some dresses to wear for my photo shoot last weekend & girlfriend showed up with a trunk full basically! I wish I could have worn them all but one thing I am learning is that a lot of vintage suits taller women. It does seem women have shrunken as the years have passed, right?! Or is that just me? Anyway, the two I ended up choosing were NOT what I expected to love. So there ya go, just like in life don’t set expectations! Here’s a sneak preview of Modage Vintage designs!
