I need a SEXY DRESS to wear to a Fashion Show in less than 48 hours!

Come on now, don't act surprised!!! You know this always happens to me!!!!! LOLLLLLL! I just wrapped up a great fitting appointment with a client and just have to do the final alterations on her custom white dress that she'll be wearing to a conference (pics soon). We both love her dress! And I have 2 more formal dresses to do (not including another bajillion things on my general to do list) but in between that I copped tickets to a Fashion show on Friday night (thanks Mr. Jim aka Gentleman Jim)---and VIP tickets at that!!! So that means I get to strut the red carpet and do all the fancy VIP stuff in addition to taking in some great fashions.

(Got my ticket! Looking forward to it. Haven't been to a fashion show all year! Plan on putting my own on in the near future!)

The Spotlighted Fashion Designer is actually one of Mr. Jim's students. His students seem to be doing a TON of big things. On a side note one of his old students and a friend of mine is actually a contestant on Project Runway this season (you can see Merline HERE). I just saw her a few weeks ago! Go Merline!!!! Anyhow he just trains them and they set sail into greatness! LOL! Anyhow her name is JaTreca Wright and you can find her work on Instagram under the name "J.Wright Collection". She's quite the talent and makes gorgeous gowns for her clients that range from classy to risque. Although our styles are a bit different I really appreciate her artistry and talent.

So to match the SEXY vibe that I know will resonate throughout the night I want to wear something befitting. I'm more of the Classy/Fun/Sexy type so I think I have the perfect idea. I was going to draft/drape my own design but ran across  a pattern I think I like more. I'll reveal later. So I have the pattern and now I need some fabric. Did a Jo-Ann's hunt today and turned up nothing. May go to Hancock's??? But you know I have my very own In-home fabric store so I'm stash hunting tonight. Yes that's 4 shelves stocked full of fabric and I have several bins and even some in the garage.

(Time to go fabric hunting in my closet......and bins.....and bags LOLLLL. In times like these I'm so happy I have my own stash!!!)

Well, I BETTER turn up with something LOL! I'm certain I will.
I'm sure I'll pick the perfect fabric!!! I'll keep you posted!!!
