I was RSVP-ing to come to support Nikia Jefferson, my dear fashion friend, who was honored last month for Maven’s Fashionista version of the Diva Series. I wrote a quick e-mail to Sarah Vargo of Maven Chicago, saying that I was super excited to be there and that it was going to be tons of fun. I mentioned that I had an art gallery and an online vintage store and I was excited to meet other people in the industry. Before I knew it, Sarah wanted to include me in her next series: Artistas. I am so happy!!!!!
Put your fancy pants on ladies and gents and come celebrate with me! It will be so much fun to see all of you and party it down…all in the name of hard work and success!!! Click the banner below to RSVP on Facebook!
