Hey Divas! It looks like another fashionable event is in the books, as Janelle Langford of Urban Suite PR and Fem-FATL hosted a fashion soiree and socialite mixer at Crystyles Boutique in Buckhead called Fashionably Sound.
The event featured the latest trends from the boutique along with styling advice from Crystal Griffin, the shop’s owner, and the savvy and street chic divas at Fem-FATL.
These fab ladies are doing it!
I had a great time connecting with all the new faces and also reconnecting with a few familiar faces, such as celebrity makeup artist Mimi J of P3Labs, fashion and style blogger Mattie of Mattieologie (luv this girl!), and fellow AA member (Accessories Anonymous) Rochelle James of Pritti Gemz. 😛
Now, it’s no secret that I absolutely LOVE cupcakes. In fact, it’s gotten so bad that I have several cupcaterers on speed dial in my Onstar navigation system. True story. And I’m always in search of the fresh and new around ATL, so it didn’t help that there were so many sweet treats in the house such as Cocktail Cupcakes by Brittany Wyatt. Now, if you’ve never heard of Cocktail Cupcakes let me give you the “juice”. Cocktail Cupcakes are just like their name suggests…cupcakes inspired by cocktail drinks. YES! Happy hour wrapped in sweetness! These little bite-sized goodies taste exactly like the mixed drinks they’re named after (they have over 20 flavors to choose from), and they’re also made with real alcohol! Bottoms up!!! So, after a few shots of the Champagne and Strawberry Daiquiri cupcakes ;-P, I was in cupcake heaven.
OK Brittany, you are officially dialed in to my short list of go-to cupcaterers! And, don’t worry…I will only call you twice a week for a restock ( I’m cutting back a lot as you can see 😛 ).
The fab ladies from Rex-Goliath Wines were also there to pour the drinks for the event.
Other goodies on the menu were Kheesekakes by Kelli, and Confections of a Sugarholic by Crystal Fox. Kelli Fair, from Kheesecakes by Kelli, makes the most decadent mini cheesecake bites…OMG! And she was also a blast to talk to! So after sampling Kelli’s cheesecakes, I had officially reached my sugar threshold for the eve and was soon teetering on lapsing into a fructose induced coma; which by the way is becoming an all too familiar event for me lately. 😐
Meeting Crystal Griffin, owner of Crystyles Boutique, was a great experience. Cystal is such a sweetheart and she invited me to her upcoming one year anniversary party. Stay tuned for the details. The boutique has some great pieces in the most fashionable trends…and affordable, which my wallet loves. I had my eye on a fab pair of heels that had a leopard print lace bottom with gold bangles that drape the ankle…BAD!!! And since I’m a card carrying member of Accessories Anonymous (AA) you know I couldn’t pass up the accessory display. And Crystal’s assistant Sean kept me laughing all night considering my wallet would soon be in tears! 😛
The Fashionably Sound soiree and socialite mixer was a huge hit! Janelle Langford of Urban Suite PR and her team have been creating “buzz” for local boutiques by hosting these types of events in and around Atlanta since 2005; AND they’ve been setting the standard for making Atlanta fashionable ever since.
