Hey there F.A.Bulous readers. It’s time for another what I wore post…with a little twist.
I attended an event recently (Revolve Detroit Proposal Gallery Opening) and intended to wear the ensemble below buuuut ended up changing because I didn’t want to be too over dressed. *CONGRATS TO THE REVOLVE DETROIT WINNERS! Read on for a link and more info*
Instead, I wore this:
You may be wondering what all the writing is about, so let me explain.
Revolve Detroit is a collaborative program created to “foster the evolution and vibrancy of Detroit’s neighborhood business districts.”The event was the kick off to the future of the Livernois Avenue of Fashion restructure. Several years ago, 7 mile and Livernois in Detroit was THE hot spot for shopping and coined as the Avenue of Fashion. However, over the years the Avenue of Fashion began to fade; but with community efforts to revive the avenue with more business, entrepreneurs submitted ideas for businesses and organizations to open in the Livernois store fronts. The event revealed the top ideas (about 20 or so) where event-goers could vote for their favorites and express their thoughts and artistic abilities on the mirror (photoed above). Some ideas included a unique thrift shopping experience run by Thrifty Broads, a tea lounge and gift shop called Brew HaHa!, a non-profit bar where 100% of the proceeds would go to local charities and much more. Every idea presented has the potential to become a thriving business, whether it be created in permanent or pop-up form (some ideas were ideas for pop-up shops).I look forward to seeing which ideas are chosen to help revive the historic Avenue of Fashion!
