CFW: VIP Reception

As I mentioned to you all on Friday, I was invited to cover the first ever Christian Fashion Week event in Tampa, FL, over the weekend. I must say it was a great experience!
The VIP Reception was held on Friday night. Of course, Dwayne and I had to pose on the red carpet because... well... it's a red carpet!
The decor was gorgeous. Silent auction tables were set up in the middle of the room which was buzzing with designers, exhibitors, models, special guests, photographers, and press.
Racks were also set up by the designers so that people could look at, feel, and try on some of the designs that were going to be modeled on the runway the next evening.
I thought the cocktail table center pieces were pretty :)
Dwayne snapped a quick photo of me pausing from my hors d'oeuvre to post on Instagram.
My babe was looking sharp!
The lovely Pat McGhee, one of the designers.
 I took advantage of the opportunity to check out some of the racks on display.
At the end of the night I met two other bloggers.
Silva of On My Shoebox and Joelle of My Sunday Dress.
