Graphic Tee + Fendi Pleated Skirt

The second night of Memphis Fashion Week took place at Crosstown Concourse and was the LRK Featured Desinger Runways Show presented by Looney Ricks Kiss. This year we saw spring/summer collections from Tanganika by Tangie, Demi Blvck, This Is Sloane, TIENA, and Jodi Brewer Couture, with accessories from Tilton Street. It’s amazing to see these garments go down the runway, I love to know the backstory to their designs and to see how detailed and collection is. You really get to see how much work these designers put into their work.fendi pleated skirt

During the show I was able to sit with our out of town influencers that were visiting as well as a handful of local bloggers. I love that our community in Memphis is so close and we get the opportunity to support local while having fun. Along with the amazing looks down the runway there were amazing looks in all the seats! Intermission was just as entertaining because there were freeze models and the people watching!anne merrill bloggermemphis fashion week fendi pleated skirt valas bag

My outfit for the show was probably my favorite outfit of the week. It was feminine and edgy at the same time. My skirt, jacket and shoes were from outfits I wore during All-Star Weekend in Charlotte (shoes worn here, jacket and skirt worn here). The graphic tee I wore I bought knowing Myles would like to see it (he recently started to love horses and unicorns are starting to become of interest too!) but it has become closet staple and happens to go with everything.

2019 MFW Influencer Luncheon

influencer luncheon
I have so much I want to share with you guys from Memphis Fashion Week. The event is full of fun and for me it starts in the afternoon and ends late at night. I am the Director of Influencers for Memphis Fashion Week. This is my fourth year being involved on the Memphis Fashin Week Board and my second year hosting influencers. You may wonder what that means. In 2018 the MFW Board decided to have influencers involved, not only local influencers but we wanted to invite influencers from around the mid-south. Last year was such a success, the influencers had an amazing time and Memphis Fashion Week is continuing to grow which means the non-profit organization, Memphis Fashion Design Network, is growing.

Memphis Travel hosts a luncheon during the weekend to welcome the out of town influencers as well as the local influencers who are in attendance. This is a great opportunity for everyone to learn a little bit more about Memphis, enjoy local food (thank you Iris for having us) and share tips and advice regarding our industry.

The Breakdown:

I was not prepared like I prefer to be for Memphis Fashion Week. I planned on wearing this cute pink short suit to this luncheon but the forecast was showing rain and mid 50’s and that outfit didn’t feel right. Skimming through my closet I found this dress I wore to an event last year. Since I was pregnant last year when I wore it, I had no idea how it was going to fit. I was nervous the stomach area was going to be stretched out but it wasn’t, I just had to squeeze into some Spanx prior to putting the dress on! This outfit isn’t new so I don’t have it linked but if you love this look and want me to find something similar leave a comment.

After the luncheon the 5 of us headed to the National Civil Rights Museum for a tour. I have been a few times but it never gets 0ld and I alawys learn something new. I was really glad we were able to take the girls here. national civil rights museum
