Special thanks to Keisha Kennedy and Carla Pennington! This was a lively bunch; I especially appreciated the thoughtful questions about accessorizing formalwear with feather boas (only for festive events and costume parties) and the politics of wearing a purple tie (perfectly appropriate at a Que party)!

Whew.

Same Chic Different Day is brought to you by the letter “W” today….
#Wow. My life has been a #whirlwind this #week! I feel like I was #whisked away to the #wonderful #world of Oz! Here’s the quick and dirty:

20121214-063246.jpgOn Tuesday I had the privilege of sharing fashion tips with the clinical staff at the Aletheia House (from the root word “truth” or to be “truthful with yourself”), which provides affordable housing, job training and placement, substance abuse treatment, HIV prevention and other services to men, women and children (and veterans). A special thank you to Keisha Kennedy (Director of #Women and #Wellness Services) and Carla Pennington (Outreach Specialist) for hosting me. The Aletheia House is truly a special place offering “a special kind of caring!”

20121214-064734.jpgThe whirlwind picked up speed on #Wednesday; I hit the road before dawn to drive to Atlanta as a guest of the #W Hotel Buckhead as it presented a series of events in partnership with the Council of Fashion Designer of America’s {Fashion Incubator}. The Fashion Incubator helps emerging designers prepare for handling the business side of the fashion industry by providing mentorship, professional education, networking opportunities and creative workspace. The day included a breakfast with design students and featured Fashion Incubator designers Daniel Vosovic, #Whitney Pozgay, Emanuela Duca and the Burkman Bros. Next was a luncheon and fashion presentation, then interviews…and the evening ended with an exclamation point: a fabulous cocktail party in the W’s rooftop bar. And of course I had to squeeze in a little #window-shopping! More on this to come on Monday…but after all this #work, I’m ready for the #weekend!
