My blogger friend, Lala and I, took a trip to the Detroit Institute of Arts. Before the snow fell in Michigan, we had a mini photo taking session.

Jeans are so hard to find for mostly all body shapes, especially since I have short, fat legs. So finally, I went to Burlington Coat Factory and found a pair of stretch jeans. OMG. They are nice and comfortable. Doesn’t even pinch my belly rolls either.

I got this peplum jacket from Torrid last year. Had to pull this staple piece out the back of the closet. I really love this shot! So laid back, which I rarely am. Haha.

Downtown Detroit

Ten local designers from the Metro Detroit Area were chosen to create their own individual samurai inspired looks. Weeks before the show, thousands of people voted for their favorite ensemble. And the winner was announced at the end of the show by The Detroit Garment Guild!

Before I reveal the winner here are a few of my favorite looks in the show. I loved this reptile looking blazer with the pumpkin colored trousers.

This dainty ballerina tip-toed down the runway with this feminine gown.

Nope! This one didn’t win but this gown is definitely winning in my book.

And the winner is… Janna Coumoundouros’s gown. She is a local jewelry maker and photographer, Lilacpop. I’ve seen her around butnever knew she was a designer too! By the way the crown gasped I knew that he dress was the winner.

A model and the designer. So much work was involved in these pieces.
