After my girl Brandy Gueary of Authentically B reached out to me with an invite to secretly preview MODChic Couture‘s upcoming summer collection, I wasted no time and jumped at the opportunity.
I was totally unaware that MODChic Couture was located in the heart of Rice Village. Nestled away in an intimate corner off of Kirby Drive, this black-owned boutique is a one-stop shop for trendy pieces of art that translate into some of the best fashion finds I’ve ever laid eyes on.
I stepped into the quaint little shop and was utterly smitten when its subtle elegance and timeless sophistication. Delicate seasonal maxi dresses, off-the-shoulder statement makers and soft hues of pink lace, blue chiffon and green wax prints covered the walls. I was convinced that I was in fashion heaven! Of course, Snapchat was the first mode of social media that I flocked to – I sifted through the handmade pieces in efforts of giving my followers a taste of the brand’s luxurious duds.
And then, I spotted the event’s hostess! Brandy looked every bit of breathtaking in a custom cream, floral embellished number that grazed the floor so perfectly. It also boasted a sheer bottom and a v-neckline. Her flawless box braids completed the look as well as a berry lip stain and natural makeup. Gorgeous, isn’t she?
Networking always comes into play when I attend all events. My goal is to reach out to at least two or three individuals to continue to grow my connects here in Houston. Luckily, I was blessed with the opportunity to meet a fellow writer/blogger from Birmingham named Lauren Pickens and she is the mastermind behind the lifestyle/fashion destination known as Whimsy Writer.
We conversed about college, travel and blog cameras over the best glass of Moscato I’ve ever encountered; it was a match made in boutique heaven. I also bumped into The Hive Society’s Amanda Randle who is another native Houstonian writer – we gabbed on and on about neon purses, pom pom accessories and a surprising mutual friend. I always find it funny that strangers can always find a way to connect, despite diverse backgrounds and different upbringings. Pretty neat, huh?
All in all, there was some serious #BlackGirlMagic in the building!
I had too much fun and I can’t wait to see what the future holds, in regards to upcoming events.
Thanks again to MODChic Couture and Brandy Gueary for such a lovely evening!
