This past weekend we were invited out to get a preview of several showrooms during Atlanta Apparel at AmericasMart. You all know that I LOVE Atlanta Apparel and could live in AmericasMart, so previewing the showrooms and hanging out with other bloggers while doing so was up my alley.
We started the day with lunch and conversation. I love meeting other bloggers and hearing their journey in the blogging world; it’s good to meet up with other people who understand your passion. We then toured several showrooms on several floors in addition to showrooms where we were able to shop. After the tour and a little shopping (I picked up a blanket scarf for only $7!) we ended our day with a fashion show. One of the cool things about Atlanta Apparel is that throughout the day they have mini fashion shows called ‘daily struts’ of the fashion and accessories being sold within the showrooms. The fashion show featured items for spring/summer 2017. Some of the trends that will be hitting some of your favorite boutiques and shops are florals, the color pink, crop tops, and wide legged pants to name a few.
Shopping was done. Conversations and connections were made. A good time was had, overall!
Check out some of the captures of AmericasMart and of the fashion show below!
