I had a BLAST at the FashionSpeak event today in Detroit hosted by the Detroit Garment Group Guild.
There were so many amazing people there, including some of the SHEI Magazine staff and my fellow blogger friends.
I met Trish from Trish’s Garage in Detroit and Senior Market Editor at T Magazine, Malina Joseph Gilchrist.
I loved seeing so many fashion bloggers, business owners and entrepreneurs in one place!
Not only was the day planned to perfection, the evening ended with designer Tracy Reese (a personal favorite).

I decided to go with a simple black look to represented my personal style.
I paired a simple black pleated button down with a pair of black denim jeans and a hand beaded statement necklace.
As Tracy said, fashion should be comfortable. I paired this Comfy U.S.A tunic top with Nine West suede wedge boots.
Not pictured is my favorite black leather tasseled Steve Madden bag. I’ve had it for years. It’s the easiest accessory to add a little edge to any look.
This year’s FashionSpeak event was definitely worthwhile. Along with a number of amazing speakers I met several young bloggers in the community that share my interest in fashion and personal style.
A special thanks goes out to Karen Buscemi, Editor of StyleLine Magazine, who coordinated and planned this event for the fashion community of Detroit. I’d also like to thank all of the volunteers and staff who helped make this event a success!
