Event Photos: The Women Empower Expo
This past weekend I had the AMAZING opportunity to be invited to attend the Women's Empower Expo here in Fort. Lauderdale, as one of their influencers. I was extremely grateful for the chance and super excited to cover their fashion show. To say the least, it was such an awesome event. To have so many talented, inspiring and smart women all in one place was mind blowing.
So this was how the event was set up. There were 30 min sessions taught from plenty of amazing speakers talking about a variety of topics from meditation to social media. There were even exercise and yoga sessions that everyone could take part in. I wish I had brought my yoga mat but I doubt I'd be able to do a proper Vinyasa flow in those heels. Haha. All of the sessions I attended were so insightful and I really enjoyed learning about a wide variety of topics.
The highlight of the event for me was, of course, the fashion show. Which was sponsored and put on by Boston Proper. They showcased their fall/winter collections and had gorgeous pieces. Even though all of the clothing was top notch, my favorite part of the show were the models. Instead of opting for professional models, Boston Proper recruited their own staff members to strut down the runway. It was great to see REAL women of all shapes, sizes and ethnicities walk down the catwalk. And I had a pretty great view from my front row seat, which was so cool! After the show, I got the chance to go look at all of the pieces up close and they were all so pretty and perfect for the fall/winter season. Boston Proper definitely has so many beautiful pieces!
Overall the expo was definitely a great event. And did I mention that this was the first one ever?! And the largest women's expo in South Florida? Not only that but the founder Alexa Carlin is my age?! She's doing amazing things and has such an inspiring and motivational story. I really left the expo with a new hunger and drive to keep pushing forward with my goals and passions. And to just go for it and like Alexa said during her session,"Stop waiting and start doing."
