Urbanistas in the City-January
The Urbanistas hit up two of the most popular bridal events in St. Louis, Alive Bride and UNVEILED. We first checked out Alive Bride held at Lumen. As mentioned, I attended this event last year and had a fab time; this year I was not disappointed.
Upon arrival, we received goodie bags. We then headed to the bar for a complimentary glass of Mirrasou Pinot Grigio, and sampled some of the delacacies at Mihalis Chop House and Bryan Young Catering. After nibbling on all the free samples, we headed upstairs to the grooms' lounge where they had mini burgers and pizza and a cool lounge area for the grooms to be. The event wrapped with a bridal gown viewing.
Spotted were Alive Magazine's Christy Miller, Attillio D'Agostino, Jason Nichols and Urbanista Sheniqua Faulkner. I also spotted Jeanne Roberts Johnson, Danielle Hunt, Danielle Lee with Fete Society, Teddy "B Free" Blackett, and Urbanistas April McKinney and Coco the Photographer. Click here for all the pics!
After a lovely church service Jasonee and I headed down to UNVEILED at the Chase, compliments of St. Louis Magazine. There were several bridal vendors in attendance, but what I most recall is the LAVISH dessert table! After nibbling on just about every dessert they had, (and several mimosas) we headed to the fashion show. The show was very traditional compared to Alive's trendy show, but I enjoyed seeing fashions for mothers of the bride.
Spotted were STL Magazine's Megan Riley Frishe and Ms. Lee, model and business exec Janet Jackson (yes, that is her REAL name) designer Paul Gibson, and my girl-fashion model Jade. Click here for all the pics!
Last, but certainly not least, the Urbanistas headed to the Boulevard to catch the Cash and Carry Boutique Sale put on by Cheresse Ink; and caught some great deals on all things designer, just in time for Spring! All the fab fashion boutiques were in the house including Jule, Codi, Blush, and Ivy Hill. I picked up this colorful pink and green flowing dress that I plan to rock during the AKA Boule' this summer!
