JULY MEETUP RECAP: Qwashae Boutique

For the Houston Fashion Bloggers the party did not end after the 4th of July. On the 5th we held our July meetup at Qwashae Boutique. Qwashae is a fashionista's dream! Selling everything from dresses to fascinators, Qwashae caters to girls of all sizes!  How did HFB learn of Qwashae? Back in March of this year, after the passing of Whitney Houston, Qwashae had a private showing for 5 dresses they had acquired from Whitney Houston's personal collection. Attending the showing, as a reporter for Fashionably Houston, Shasie of Live Life in Style discovered that they offered private parties, and thought it would be a great location for a future Houston Fashion Bloggers Meetup...and it was!!

From the time we arrived to the time we left the evening was full of tons of fun. The shop was closed down to the bloggers only and we were greeted with friend faces, strawberries, champagne, cookies, and a welcome sign.  Lots of new members to HFB came out to the meetup so we spent the first 30 minutes just mingling and networking. We also had a special guest of honor attend, Atlanta Style Blogger Nikka Shae of Oh Nikka.  A native of Houston, she happened to be in town visiting and was able to attend our meetup!We love meeting bloggers from other cities!

Erica & Lina were our personal stylists for the evening and kept us entertained with questions such as "Find the dress in the store that you've seen Kim Kardashian wear on a red carpet", and then we would all bolt up running around the store trying to find the dress to receive a prize.

Tomekia Jackson won the first trivia for picking out Kim K's dress

HFB Founder, Shasie won the 2nd one for finding Paris Hilton's Dress

And Vernetta Freeney won the 3rd & Last trivia on what Kourtney Kardashian has been pictured in
All 3 of them received 15% off gift certificates to use in the store. Of course we didn't just sit around and hold dresses all evening, we tried them on! Check out how HFB Members play dressup!
