Part 1 of Cocktails with Claire x Miss Diddy LA was bomb, and Part 2 saw even more fabulosity!
Miss Diddy and I made our way back to Studio 450 to shop from a handpicked selection of local vendors, listen to beats by DJ Kitty Cash, eat even more Chef Jeff treats, and sip delicious Hennessy cocktails.
We had loads of outstanding vendors on deck, including Rue 107, Glam Empire, Neue Amour, Harx 4, Safi Jewels, Cee Cee’s Closet, Ty Lite Official, Jesse Queen, The DPiper Twins, Tnemroda, Trinket Desire, Statement Junky, Cockee Clothing, Courtney Noelle, Total Life Change Success, E. Lo Lip Care, Nude Barre, Sassy Jones Boutique!
Shop Jesse Queen’s Bianca Stewart is a baddie! She worked a look from her line, geared towards tall fashionistas.
A gold buttoned jacket over all white was a win in my book.
Sometimes all you need is statement jewelry to enliven any look.
Prints were a chic choice for this Fashion Bomber.
This fashionista worked a fuzzy coat, jeans, and boots. Bomb!
Red lips and a red bag were all this Fashion Bombshell needed to stand out from the crowd.
And these friends came to slay in maxi dresses and varsity cardigans.
Over on the Step and Repeat…
These friends looked dope in rocker chic looks.
Jazzy red and animal print shoes added pop to a gray mini dress.
Edgina of Rue 107 looked pretty in pink.
Designer Iris Barbee Bonner looked electric in graffiti printed pieces from her line, These Pink Lips.
Angel White of Rochester’s Way of M made her presence felt with purple hair and a feathered skirt.
Erin from Nude Barre looked lovely in a forest green dress.
Empire cast member Bre-Z aka Freda Gatz popped by.
And Miss Diddy and I twirled on the step and repeat. I went for a ‘fashion superhero’ vibe in a caped jumpsuit by Shades of Shea and Stuart Weitzman Nudist Sandals.
Miss Diddy rocked a hot caged top from House of CB.
At the end of the night, we gave a Toyota Bold Award to Tamika, who rocked a striped crop top, high waisted pant, and an accent coat.
I’m actually still pouring over pictures (there are so many more!).
