Education and Fashion Go Hand in Hand

I have attended a few fashion shows in my day, and they have all given me great ideas on what’s hot and what’s not. Today, I had the pleasure of attending the Ivy Educational & Charitable Foundation of Houston 35th Annual Scholarship Luncheon and Fashion Show. It was very inspiring. Not just because of the killer fashion (which we will talk about later) but because of the commitment that this organization has for the betterment of youth and education. 

The luncheon kicked off with words of motivation. Afterwards, they recognized 19 Scholarship recipients who were gifted with a scholarship between $1500-$2000. Not only did they recognize students who were excelling, they also recognized individuals who are doing great things in the community (as it pertains to education and giving back). 

The models were garbed in Dillard’s (First Colony Mall) apparel from head to toe (frankly, I thought I would be unimpressed). However, they rocked the runway!  There were 4 scenes: Casual, Business, Cocktail, and Formal. From scene 1 until the last model exited the stage, I smiled with pride because these were your everyday, ordinary people modeling these trends. I loved it! This made the fashion show much more enjoyable, because the ladies and gents who walked the runway exuded confidence, enthusiasm and sass! Kudos!

Fashion and Education go hand in hand when it comes to the Ivy Educational Foundation. These ladies aren’t just talking about it, they are actually EMPOWERING, ENCOURAGING, and EDUCATING the youth!

The HIGH and low of it all! 

There are days I feel like being girly, without showing the legs(maybe because I don’t feel like shaving) and today was that day! One option for days like this is the extreme high-low dress, because you can pair it with jeans or tights.  

I’ve always liked the high-low dress because it is feminine and adds a bit of  drama to your closet. It also allows you to be that girly girl on days when you really aren’t feeling it. You know I love to look good on a budget; so the high-low dress I’m wearing was a great #FashionablyMimi find because the price was RIGHT! 

Outfit Deets are listed below. 

I’d love to see how you’ve paired your high-low dress for the perfect casual look.
