Bras with Flair on the Square Recap

I had such a great time at our 7th annual Bras with Flair on the Square event! Mother Nature was nice to us this year with a bright and sunny day for the lunch portion, and we brought the evening portion inside to the beautiful PNC Bank location on 5th St. (If you haven’t been in there, you must! It’s gorgeous!)

We raised lots of money through ticket sales and silent auction for Susan G. Komen. And of course we had a ton of fun! Click here to check out all the hilarious pics from the photobooth! 🙂

For the fashion show portion of the event, I was so excited to work with Mitchell’s Salon & Day Spa (who has sponsored this event for the past three years!!) for the hair/makeup and Pink Tulip Club for the FABULOUS clothing. Pink Tulip Club is my favorite local women’s clothing boutique because not only do they have great brands and unique items, but their prices are really reasonable! They have their location in Montgomery that they’ve been at for a few years, and also their new location in Hyde Park!

Below are a few of my favorite looks from the show. Click here to see the awesome album from Cincinnati.com’s photographer and click here to see the great pics our photographer took! Enjoy!

Bras with Flair Sneak Peek: Style Sample

My friend Tamia at Style Sample sent me a pic of the bra she decorated and donated for Bras with Flair on Oct. 19! Tamia says she titled the bra “Purple Rain” … I think she should call it the “piece of art formerly known as a bra.” haha! 🙂

You can see this and more than FOUR HUNDRED (yes, that’s how many donations we got in!!!) decorated bras flying high on Fountain Square on Oct. 19. Click here for more details and to RSVP for the Bras with Flair Fashion Show that benefits Susan G. Komen!

Bras with Flair Sneak Peek

Bras with Flair Sneak Peek… yes, an odd-sounding headline, but that’s what this post is all about! 🙂

Like I posted about earlier, we have in lots of fabulous decorated bra entries already, but we can always use more! This Friday is the last day to donate your decorated bra, so don’t miss out! Drop-off details and prize info here: http://cincychic.com/braswithflair

Below another pic of a bra that you can see flying high on Fountain Square Oct. 19… my friend Jenny at LadyLike Chic created this one. She says she was going for a dark, French coquettish vibe. So she took a black bra, covered it in purple lace, and added a few bows, pearls and some black ruffles to the bottom of the bra. So chic! I love it!

Hope to see YOUR bra on Fountain Square too! Like I said before, Friday is the deadline for drop-offs. Then, we’ll have them all displayed on Fountain Square from 11am-1pm, and we’ll also be taking votes for everyone’s favorite creations. The top vote earner wins two Ultimate Jet Charter Tickets! If you’re in the top 10, the bra is paired w a silent auction item and given to the winning bidder. Others will be sold for a donation to Susan G. Komen!

Bras with Flair Donations Due This Week!

I stopped in to PNC Bank to see how our Bras with Flair on the Square decorated bra donations are coming, and a ton of incredible creations have been submitted! Here’s one from DiscoToes (we recently wrote about them here in Cincy Chic!). This Friday is the last day to donate your decorated bra, so don’t miss out! Drop-off details and prize info here: http://cincychic.com/braswithflair Then, see all the decorated bras fly high on Fountain Square for the big event on Oct. 19. Click here to learn more and RSVP!

Bras with Flair on the Square 2012

Local Model Featured in New York Fashion Week

The photo that caught my eye - Kendal behind the scenes of Ann Yee's Autumn/Winter 2012 collection and hair by Marcos Diaz

New York Fashion Week is going on right now. While I didn’t get any invites (hint hint anyone?! haha!), I am getting a ton of emails from designers and beauty product companies with photos from their shows. Much to my surprise, as I opened one of those emails yesterday, I saw a familiar face!

A model, Kendal Elder, who has modeled in many Cincy Chic fashion shows – such as our recent Bras with Flair on the Square Fashion Show in Oct. – was featured in an email I got about Ann Yee’s Autumn/Winter 2012 collection and hair by Marcos Diaz. The first photo in the email was of Kendal and I couldn’t believe it! I immediately emailed my contact, Lori Colwell, at her modeling agency – MTM Cincinnati – and she confirmed it was Kendal!

“This is her first NYC Fashion Week,” says Colwell, “after over three years of hard work!”

Colwell said Kendal’s first show was Thursday night, the Gen Art New Garde Show. It was sponsored by Crest Whitestrips and they had the show streaming live on their facebook page. So, everyone at the agency and all of Kendal’s friends/family got to watch it! Click here to see it for yourself!

Kendal is still going to castings, Colwell says, and has other shows booked. “The only one I know is a presentation for Imitation of Christ,” Colwell adds.

Kendal is a Springboro High School graduate from Waynesville, Ohio, and she’s been featured in both Cincinnati Fashion Week finale fashion shows. And I’m so proud that she made it to THE fashion week this year! CONGRATS Kendal!!!
