Last night, I attended the one-year anniversary celebration for my friend/colleague Brandy Gueary’s lifestyle and fashion blog, Authentically+B!
Since I first met this bomb fashionista at a prior ModChic Boutique mixer, I knew she was something special. With an unparalleled elegance like no other and a natural beauty that holds you captive, she’s the epitome of a #GirlBoss. She’s a loving mother, wife and full-time teacher who manages to balance life with such class and sophistication, yet her passion for style shines through so effortlessly. It’s been a pleasure to watch her evolve as a brand.
So, after receiving the invite via Facebook, I knew I had to support my chica for such a monumental occasion!
The intimate shindig was held at the ultra-chic District at Memorial Apartment Clubhouse. The ambiance was significantly serene and ultra-chic. Upon entering the grand foyer, guests encountered a winding staircase lined with white rose petals and a beaming photographer who made you feel like you were walking the red carpet at The Emmy Awards. It was amazing!
In addition, the actual event space was equally as charming. Lite bites including an extensive fruit selection, cheese and crackers, Oreo-inspired mini cupcakes and pepperoni stacks were plastered across the marble countertops while bottles of champagne flowed endlessly. Some of Houston’s finest fashionistas and style influencers filled the room and the connection amongst us all was just so natural and motivating. I chopped it up with a fellow writers, bloggers and even played catch up with a few old friends.
And, the-woman-of-the-hour looked ravishing in a B&W sequin-drenched number from Melodrama Boutique. Isn’t she adorable?!
All in all, the celebration was alot of fun! I’m so proud of Brandy and I’m excited to see what the future has in store. I’m pretty sure it’s nothing short of legendary. My girl is going places! Believe me!
