Afternoon of coffee and spring fashion

Imagine being totally in la-la-land about the annual fashion show hosted by our favorite shopping mall. Every year, it’s Steev who alerts us to this event since he’s a professional photographer with a vested interest in fashion shoots, weddings and everything photography.

But this year, with Steev away in Cali and the royal wedding and everything else, this event completely slipped our minds. Good thing we walked right into the full swing of things the minute we stepped off the escalator!

There’s a full line-up of fashion shows presented by the stores at the mall. I’m talking one fashion show every half hour. Awesome! We grabbed some coffee from Coffee Bean, found a vantage spot to park our butts and pretty much stayed the entire afternoon.

This year, Raine is our budding photographer. She was too shy to climb into the media box, where Steev would usually be, but from our spot right up near the top of the catwalk, she captured these pictures (not bad, huh?) Are you a fan of fashion shows like us?

By the way, maxi dresses are back in this spring/summer. I remember wearing them back in the day and I still find them very elegant! You can check out more designs of very pretty floral prints and plain maxi dresses on my shopping blog which I update with new designs and deals every day.
