White out

 
 My sense of style is definitely eclectic. I can be Victoria Beckham today the next am Nicole Richie. When I saw this ensemble on Asos I immediately thought of dressing the look up like a bougie Morden day Thelma and Louise. If only I had an old vintage car with a top down and a Louise to complete the vibe. Mhhhh Makes for a great collabo idea with another blogger! 

Now Let's talk about this bag!!! Gucci is so in this season and I could not pass on this Gucci inspired hand bag I saw in Aldo. I just love the colors and could not pass it by. Look am unapologetic about buying dupes or things that are inspired by high end brands that way I stay within my budget. 

What do you guys think about the look? Thanks for stopping by. Love you for reading

Chauncey Glover Project Gala


 Founded by 3 time Emmy award winning journalist and News anchor for abc 13 Houston Chancy Glover, the Chauncey Glover project is a hands on mentoring program that grooms inner-city teenage boys into upstanding and accomplished gentlemen. This is achieved through education, self empowerment, financial responsibility and college readiness. On June 9th the CPG black tie  Inaugural ball was held at the Queensbury Theatre, and was hosted by actor Christian Hayes
 

The galas theme Breaking out:  Breaking the chains, Breaking the cycle shaded light on how the troubled young men over come adversity, enhanced their characters and achieved their goals. The young men took to the stage and literally showcased a transformation out of orange jumpsuits into well groomed respectful young men headed to college with full ride scholarships. 

 

 

Several of the city's most influential figures were honored at the gala. These included 


U.S. Representative Sheila Jackson Lee, 18th Congressional District – “You Are Fearless Award”

Constable Alan Rosen, Harris County Constable’s Office Precinct 1 – “Heart of Houston Award”

Pastor Marcus Cosby of Wheeler Avenue Baptist Church – “Faith Forward Visionary Leadership Award”

Darryl Gaines of NASA – “Houston Game Changer Award”

Marcus Davis, Owner of The Breakfast Klub – “Spirit of the Entrepreneur Award”Andre Johnson, Retired Houston Texans- “Man of The Year Award”

 

 

 

I laughed, I cried but most importantly I was motivated and inspired by how much these young men had overcome. Be sure to visit

Fashion x Austin ( Austin Fashion Week)

 

In March 2016, I  decided I would be more consistent with blogging.  So I made some short term and long term blogging goals  for Akellochic. One of my many long term goals, was to be able to attend the major fashion shows in the 3 mojor cities in Texas. These are Houston, Dallas and Austin, all run by FashionX. Co. So you can imagine how over joyed I was to receive an email from them to not only attend and do media coverage but to also have VIP access. It truly felt rewarding, and that I had reached a mile stone in my love and passion for Fashion. As the saying goes always acknowledge the mile stones you set and  accomplish no matter how small or big they are. This one, this one was definitely one for my books. 

The show was a 3 day event from May18 through the 20th and was held at the  JW Marriott hotel in heart of beautiful downtown Austin. I was over ecstatic and to say my experience exceeded my expectations is an understatement. The ballroom was on the second floor of the 5 star hotel. In the hallway as you made your way to the ballroom, was the red carpet where guests took flicks standing in front of a back drop that had the event logo and the many amazing sponsors. 

 


The room was filled with guests networking as they sipped to cocktails they fancied. There was also Vendors with different enticing products giving guests the option of shopping as they networked. In the center of the room was the gorgeous runway in its all white glory and a grass green with white flower back drop at the end where the models would come out to walk the runway. To the side of the runway where big projection screens that would show the name of the designer as the models walked. To the very 

Opposite of the runway was the VIP lounge where guests enjoyed free cocktails and wine while networking. 

 

 

The show began with founder and CEO of fashion.co Matt Swinney adreesing the crowd, cracking a few jokes here and there, acknowledging the amount of talent Austin had

and thanking his team. Then it was runway time. Each designer I felt, had ready to wear pieces. I could not wait to head backstage and see how I could get the pieces that spoke to me could make their way into my closet. 

 

    



It was truly an amazing, inspiring and booster to keep following my passion. I felt at home. I want to end by thanking POM PR

for allowing Akellochic to be part of the media at Fashion x Austin 2017. It was truly one for the books. And a huge congratulations to FashionX.co for a every successful Fashion week.  And as always Thank you everyone for taking a read. Until next time stay fabulous, determined and focused

Love 

Lulu
