Fashion Bomb Meet & Greet!!!

Hello Lovelies!!
I am SO tired from yesterday and am running to catch a plane, but wanted to give y'all the scoop on last night's event.
Well, what can I say? It was, in a word: FABULOUS!
Though I arrived fashionably late (and we had to leave a bit early), I had a great time meeting, mingling, shopping, and sipping with my New York Fashion Bomb contingent.
A few pictures of the scene at Te Casan:
I got my buddy and professional photographer Casey Noel (www.cnoelphotoandtravel.com) to handle all the pictures. He caught amazing portraits, much better than my handy dandy Canon!  Take a look at some of the fabulous, chic peeps who rolled through:
Beautiful!
Of course I couldn't help but jump in and snap a few pix myself:
Yours truly with Latisha Daring of Pieces Boutique (www.piecesofbklyn.com), my absolute favorite place to shop in Brooklyn! I got my dress and jewels from Pieces, flats from Te Casan.  You like?
Designer Malcolm Harris (www.malsirrah.com) came thru as well along with his partner Tyson of www.unvogue.com...
Shout out to my cousin Kofi! He's an aspiring model. Check him out at www.myspace.com/ny8store.
And I had to put my friends to work modeling the new Fashion Bomb t-shirts:
They're hot! Pick one up today!!!
With that said, it was a great time. I had a lot of fun.

I want to say THANK YOU to my sponsors: Latisha and Colin from Pieces Boutique (www.piecesofbklyn.com), Bryce at Intencity PR for the Elizabeth Grant (www.elizabethgrant.com) and Lifebooker.com products, Claude from Trace Magazine (www.trace212.com), and Garnell from Halcyon Jets (www.halcyonjets.com)! 
Also THANK YOU to Maureen from Step Petal Media for coordinating everything, and thanks to the wonderful people at Te Casan (www.tecasan.com) for hosting me, selling fabulous, amazing shoes, and for all your help last night. Special shouts to Marco and Darien!
Last, but not least: a super huge THANK YOU to everyone who came out--my dear dear amazing splendiforous friends (I can't name you all), readers (same), and my guy friends who might not always be the target readers for the Fashion Bomb, but rolled out nonetheless.
I heart you all, it was amazing time, and it won't be the last!
Time to switch out of my Cinderella costume, and put back on my nerd glasses:)
Ummm...if you want me, you can find me in the A!
Smootches!

SEE that is the number one reason i love New York, black folks all folks are so fashionaly different and outgoing and dont care what you think, when i dress like that out here in Cali all i get is akward stares and haters but i dont care cuz its me. it wont be long till i can express my style 100% the way i want it to be. Big ups to you Claire

oh and as a side note i see you wearin the flats, I am having my bunion problems since the last 2months so i sympathize been in flats all week, its hard not wearing heels:(

Great look Claire, gorgeous dress and hair! Just loved the lady in the white skinny jeans damn she killed it with the chic casual and out-of-the ordinary style! Looked like everybody had fun! Just love the fact that you have a very diverse family and friends, goes to show how open-minded you are! Take care!

Claire, thanks so much for the event. I got to meet my favorite designer, Mal Sirrah (Malcolm) and he was so nice and down to earth. I couldn't believe it when I saw him walk in to the door. Claire, thank you so much for making a dream come true.

Wow, I missed a good party. Everyone looks so great.

As I sit in my old distressed (I don't know if it was supposed to be!) khaki J Crew blazer, T that was a "night shirt" a few days ago, faded black trousers, scarf and flip flops, I can't help but feel like an underachiever after looking at your pictures. I'm on the MIT campus today though so it's perfectly acceptable!

ings, me too! Claire, want to throw one for the Boston/Cambridge crew :) ??

Claire...Just gorgeous! I love your dress and flats. And I must say that your make-up and lashes are beautiful.

Ciao!

not to hate, the event looks great, but your shoes did not go with that outfit. You should have worn some heels so as to enlongate you physique. The flats made you look, short and stubby.

Anonymous,
If you read this blog for any length of time, you'd know that Claire recently had FOOT SURGERY which prevents her from wearing heels.
Geez, people always looking for something bad to say!

Claire, I'm so disappointed that I missed this shindig but I made an attempt to go. I got there @ 8p and it was over!!!! ;-( Anyhoo, I'm glad to read it was a success and I'm still gonna blog about it. (I'll send you the link when I do...)
