Night in Paris Hair Show

Tonight I went to the Night in Paris Hair Show. I’ve been to hair shows in the past, and it had been a while, so I was excited to attend.

The show was very interesting. It was held at the Columbia Metropolitain Convention Center. There were a lot of vendors and attendence was great. There was a lot going on though.

The show didn’t seem as organized as it should have been. The DJ had to start the music over for several different acts. We couldn’t hear the mic over the music. The lights kept turning on and off at the wrong time.

The motivational speaker had a great message, but the message was lost because people were looking for excitement not a business sermon. The barber competition was more exciting. I loved looking at the barbers create designs in under 14 mins.

Chris Benz and EdVenture’s Girl’s Night Out Was A Blast!

Last night I went to 701 Whaley For EdVenture’s Girl’s Night Out! It was so much fun. I met fashion designer Chris Benz, who is extremely nice in person. I also saw a friend perform with Unbound Dance Company, and saw the designer’s Spring 2012 collection. If you want to meet him too, don’t fret. He will be at Coplon’s on 4825 Forest Drive for a trunk show tomorrow from 10-6 and on Saturday from 10-3.

A Devine Night Out Was Amazing

A Devine Night Out

Last night I went downtown to A Devine Night Out. It was Columbia’s version of Fashions Night Out and I had a blast. Every store on Devine Street was open and full of people. Shop owners served drinks and snacks as shoppers perused racks of clothes, and restaurants stayed open to provide people with warm food. I wish I had stopped in one of those restaurants. Everyone looked so warm and toasty, but I stuck to the shops. There was also a nice raffle with great prizes from local spots.

 Swap Event Promotes Community Service and Fabulous Clothes
Live life to the fullest, but on a budget at Columbia’s first cocktail swap event, Diva Swap 2010. 
Diva Swap is a fun, charitable way to swap your gently used items for new-to-you items.  Items to be swapped include clothing, accessories and shoes.  Join Columbia’s most fashionable women on August 6, 2010, from 5:30pm to 8:30pm, at the Embassy Suites as they swap the night away with live music, delicious food and free swag bag gifts. 

Diva Swap is not your ordinary swap event.  It’s a fabulous way to network and give back to the community.  Diva Swap is the perfect reason to de-clutter those closets for charity.   Swap attendees are encouraged to bring more than one item to swap so that additional items will be available for donation to local charities and shelters.   

Diva Swap swag bag partners include Yogen Fruz  in Village at Sandhills and Aloette of South Carolina.  Both companies have signed on to provide free coupons and products for all swap attendees.  Tickets are available online via http://divaswap.eventbrite.com.  For more information, visit www.shoestringchronicles.com or email [email protected]
