Last Friday was a dream come true. My first job was in a library, and as a writer it’s been my goal to add my story to the symphony of stories a library curates. To have the opportunity to do that at Fashion Friday was beyond my wildest dreams (and that’s saying something). THANK YOU to Chanda Temple, the Birmingham Public Library Director and staff (including Mr. Roderick and Mr. Arthur and Vonda!), Deidra K. Perry and Birmingham Magazine, Belk, Michele Dickey and Panorama Public Relations, Alicia Rohan and KC Projects, Jamie Robinson and The Outlet Shops of Grand River, Roxy Rabb, Lynsey Weatherspoon, the City of Birmingham, Betsy Prince, Karri Bentley/Artistry Cosmetics, James Adams, Jr./Renovare Hair Salon, Mrs. Tia Chestang-Beville and Mrs. Marty C. Barton. Thank you to Marissa Mitchell at ABC 33/40’s Talk of Alabama, Rick Jackson at CBS 42’s Wake Up Alabama , Russell McClinton/Urbanham.com, Javacia Harris Bowser/The Writeous Babe Project and Mia Watkins/AL.com. THANK YOU to everyone who tweeted, posted, hung a flyer, kept me off the ledge, attended or in some way supported Fashion Friday and Same Chic Different Day. If I have forgotten your name, please charge it to my head-not my heart-and know that I appreciate you!
Please enjoy a few candids from Fashion Friday below; I’ll share the “official photos” soon.
Onward and upward!
