Fashion Forecast Memphis 2010 ~ Idea Notebook


This past Friday, I attended Fashion Forecast Memphis, a premiere event presented by Tajuan Givens in it's second year benefiting Dress for Success Memphis. The runway show featuring local shops and designers showcased 11 great collections way up from last year's 3. As Susan Kyles, executive director of DFS Memphis, put it best, the event can potentially put Memphis proudly on the map. The collections showcased are listed below.

Most of the boutiques and designers were new to me, but I will add them to my list of fashion resources and inspiration from now on. Also, watching the runway show, I wasn't armed with a camera but with a pen, taking notes of what items I must add to my wardrobe soon. The list is tagged to the Idea Notebook above.

{1} Rompers
{2} Wide brim sun hat
{3} High-waisted mini skirt or shorts
{4} Large satchel bag
{5} High heel sandals or wedges with multiple straps or lace cut-out
{6} Metal bib necklace
{7} Weekender bag by philip grene
{8} I'm So Memphis t-shirt available at Sneak Peek or Style Junkie

I created a portion of the montage at polyvore. You can see where the photos of the actual items links from here. Such a fun tool.

Special thanks to Susan Kyles and DFS Memphis. Graphic layout by Sophorn. Photos from corresponding item sites.

Thanks. Hate they are out of my price range except for that one skirt that's like $17. There's a dress I want from The Boulevard and Maggie Dandridge.
