Fashionistas from Austin, did you have a great time last night at the Austin Fashion Week 2010 Kick-Off? If you ask me, it’s a whopping YES YES YES!!! August 14, 2010 marked the start of Austin Fashion Week. I had so much fun… met some local designers, boutique owners and a blogger too. Weee! Now I can’t wait for the next events to come! There were overflowing free food and booze and that darn Champagne got me tipsy before the start of the event! Haha. Before I share with you the Red Carpet photos, the fashion show, Tiffany’s (80s pop star) performance and the rest, I’ll share with you photos of the event… the venue, the food, the people, the works!!! Just check it out below. Sorry for the ton of photos!
Outside the Event held at GSD&M Idea City
I know I should have worn a dress or skirt but I had a scratch from Louis’ nails while we were playing… no biggie though. It’ll be gone before the Austin Fashion Week Awards Show. 🙂 Now his nails have already been cut. LOL!

This is before the event… people were either inside the building (because it was such a hot day) or at the food and drinks area…
MFJ with her Laetitia Champagne – crisp and sweet I wouldn’t know it’s a bit strong until I felt light-headed after 1 glass! LOL!
The new Lotus Evora
Some of the food from Delish (yummy cupcakes – watch their Cupcake Wars audition on YouTube), ton of popcorn varieties from Cornucopia (loving the Longhorn mix – I’m actually munching on them now), and various delicious sushi/maki rolls from How Do You Roll!
More food from Cru, Mama Fu’s Asian House (delicious lettuce wraps with minced chicken, egg rolls, snap peas and more), Frank, My Fit Foods (super tasty rice meal for DIETERS – tasty but fit foods), Imperia, Tart Yogurt (had to get those of course, lol).
Look at that back-baring dress with a nice tattoo – fierce!
Delicious Asian food from Mama Fu’s!
Now for some booze! LOL!
I drank a lot… I think… tried Tito’s Vodka Sweet O’s, Vanilla Ice, Catwalk Margarita, Mango Tango (?), Cruz Tequila, Paula’s Texas Spirits…

With Art & Jewelry designer Shalena White – her neckpiece is a show stopper! The back part is just like the front part! And it took her almost a year to finish it! Whew! Well, hard work pays off! I love it!
Ladies all dressed up. Should have taken a side picture of that lovely red flower on her hair!
Knockout beauty… love her overall look!
