This past Saturday Macys King of Prussia in Philadelphia kicked off their annual prom celebration. Held every April, it’s a special fashion show event highlighting the seasons top trends for prom goers. And yes every city has its own traditions, style and flare and Philly is no different. But in fashion some things are across the board. Like skinny jeans and leather moto jackets. Which are not prom approved by the way.

Nonetheless, trends change every year, thats the nature of fashion and for prom its no different. Thats all apart of the magic of Macys, especially if you are not a fashionista or just confused about what to wear to prom.

Yesterday Macys Hosted their #FashionRocks event at the Macys Philadelphia location (click here for events in your area). As a stylist who blogs its always exciting to attend great events like this in my hometown. I love traveling to New York but, having fashion in Philly is always nice. Orly Shani of E!’s Fabulist was our show emcee and gave us the official run down for fall fashion at Macys! Here are a few looks from the show.

Fashion’s Night Out Philadelphia

R-L (Mecca, Karima (Not Me), Georgette, & Yeve)

Each of you has received a gift to use to serve others. 

This quote could not be more relevant to my life this past week. For the second year in a row Skinny Minority served as the official stylist for Macy’s Fashion’s Night Out [FNO] Event. This year our hometown of Philadelphia was an official city for FNO! 

Mama I’m Famous

I was so thrilled at the opportunity to speak to these women about Fall Trends, Body Image, Budgets, Bras and Boobies. This year I created and curated Macys first Style Sessions, where I took four amazing ladies and styled them in Fall’s hottest trends. 

R-L (Mecca, Karima (Not Me), Georgette, & Yeve)

Our event took place in the INC Concepts section of the women’s department and boy did we have a crowd. Ladies were coming out of the wood works and with only two rows of seating there was standing room only! 

I was thrilled to work with my “models” 2 of which are not only my followers but fellow bloggers. To the far left Mecca of Style Out Loud rocked an amazing Green Vince Camuto Blazer while Georgette of Grown & Curvy Woman looked fabulous in a teal pencil skirt by Alfani, both are available at Macys. 

Tahari Dress, Sam Edelman Shoes (old), Cuff Juicy Couture

I wore a dress by Tahari, my dress is from his straight size line but he also offers plus up to size 24. This dress fit great; I got many compliments that night. Even one of the shoppers asked me where I got my dress from and of course I told it was provided by Macy’s. FYI If my boobs were smaller I could have fit a size 12 but I opted for a size 14. 

Chit Chat After The Event

Q&A With The Shoppers

I’m chatty so I absolutely loved talking to the shoppers after the session ended. I got great questions about bathing suits, jeans and even modeling. I also got the chance to meet many of the other followers which is always a cool experience for me. I can not express how much that means to me when people take the time to support what I have going on, its unexplainable. I’m truly grateful to have such supportive followers, family and friends.  You guys and dolls are amazing.
