Diamonds and Desserts, what a wonderful combination right? You can bet I was excited when I first heard about this event! Last week I attended the 2nd annual Diamonds and Desserts Soiree at Robbins Brothers in the Galleria area. The event was hosted by Houston designer and Project Runway winner Chloe Dao.
I must say the first thing I thought of when walking inside the store filled with the best diamonds a girl could dream of, was that scene in How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days. The entire night I kept saying to myself: “Ladies, Frost Yourselves!” LOL. And the ladies did, some of my fellow Houston Fashion Bloggers tried on diamond rings that would make any girl swoon.
Anyway, the room was filled with bloggers and style trend-setters ready to try on jewelry and see Chloe’s new bridal collection. The dresses were gorgeous! I fell in love with just about every dress. You can shop her collection here.
The event was more than jewels and yummy treats, it was also a way to promote Girls Inc., a charitable organization which equips young women with the skills and support for success. Their motto is: Be Strong, Be Smart, Be Bold!
In fact, one of the models in the fashion show was from Girls Inc., Rakiya McClure dazzled in a Chloe Dao cocktail dress. She also shared why she loves being a part of Girl’s Inc.
Ohh, and one more highlight of the night, I won a gorgeous diamond necklace! Thanks to Robbins Brothers for making a gal feel really special!
