Last week designer Nicole Miller visited Little Rock and appeared at the annual Bolo Bash luncheon in support of Baptist Health. It was my first time at this event (I mean, how?! It's been going on for 25 years and somehow I've missed the boat. I'll definitely be going back.) The entire event is based around charity and giving back to the doctors and healthcare community that helps us so much. I know I'm thankful they nursed my mother back to health this past summer when she went on life support.
I had a really nice time meeting people in the community I had communicated with, but never actually met in person. Bolo Bash featured an amazing auction (I had my eye on a colorful Nicole Miller clutch, but so did everyone else!) and an out-of-this-world lunch. They even decorated the room with a tropical theme to match the prints of Nicole's current spring collection, inspired by Rio. What a great idea, and it looked so perfect! My friend Lisa from B98.5 interviewed Nicole on stage, and it was truly entertaining. Afterwards, models walked the runway in the cutest crop tops and spring prints you've ever seen. It definitely made me want to go shopping right then and there (but then again, I have a problem).
I wore a gorgeous spring sheath designed by Nicole that I bought at the trunk show she hosted at Dillard's last week. I just couldn't resist. It's the perfect spring/summer dress that I can just "throw on" with the kids. And while I love it with heels to wear to events, I can wear it everyday with cute sandals.
Before Bolo Bash started, I was able to catch up with Nicole and ask her a few questions (forgive the quality of the sound/camera...one of these days I'm going to hire a personal assistant. Wink.). Scroll to the bottom to watch our interview!
Have a chic week, friends and lotsa air kisses. xoxo
P.S. Thanks to the ladies at Baptist Health and involved with Bolo Bash for hosting me last week. Everything was amazing!
