Essence Music Festival: Fashion and Fun

First off, I have to give a huge shout to the local Bed and Breakfast, Sully’s Mansion, where we stayed during our time at the Festival.  I’m almost embarrassed to say that this was my 1st stay at a Bed and Breakfast.  Yep, that’s right.  1st stay — had never done it before.  It was beyond worth the experience.  The B&B was simply exquisite.  I really don’t have the proper words to describe it.  It is definitely an “experience” that everyone must have.  The house itself is beautiful both inside and out.  So much personality and character and every inch of it immaculately decorated.  

But what really made the stay stand out for me was the innkeepers, Nancy and Guy Fournier.

You won’t meet more genuine people.  And it’s evident they love what they do.  You feel at home the moment you walk through the door.  It is simply a great place to stay.

Now, on the the festival activities….

Me and my friends’ Fashion for the Friday Night Show (which was awesome by the way – Charlie Wilson is a “must see” to say the least!)

What I’m Wearing: J. Crew Romper,  Franco Sarto Sandals, J. Crew Necklace, Laura Merkin Clutch

And here are my finds from the Festival vendors….

There was pretty good selection of vendors but I think my favorite was Afrodesiac Worldwide (check out her site http://www.afrodesiacworldwide.com/index.php).

I love the vibrant prints — traditional African – and all of her pieces were beautiful — with that kinda retro glam and funky feel to them (Jumpsuit and Clutch).   What do you think?
