People gathered for the fashion show inside Macy's on the second floor of the Galleria. The event started out with free appetizers and drinks (including potato meat quiche and wine. YUM) . They had free registration for the event.
Macy's store manager Natalie Gilbert welcomed everyone to the event and talked about its discounted sale for charity.
Those pumps were on point!

NOTE: The event was quite good for an afternoon inside the mall using a clothing line space to hold it. The appetizers were delish and heavy and the drinks were right on time. Even though the actual show was about 30 minutes long, it was overall a nice event for the standing room only (literally) crowd.
We checked out the Mayweather-Mosley Fight Party held at Karma. Pictured is resident host, Mocha Latte. The party was promoted by Close to Famous (who had a private party on the third floor) Topher and Karma.
Before the fight started, Latte made annoucements for those who wanted to place bets on who would win and what round. The cash prize was $500 but folk had to chip in to win.

NOTE: We mostly walked up and down the steps to catch both the public and private parties going on that nite (nothing really happenned up in the private party for it to be private, but we are just sayin). The fite itself was just "eh." (or in the words of teh Tom Joyne Morning Show--:it wa sliek we were watching 'Dancing with the Stars," LOL) But YOURS TRULY had some excitement after leaving Karma when a raincloud split in half and poured down rain like a waterfall. OMG YOURS TRULY was doing a yard dash to the Impala while my clothes were past wet. When YOURS TRULY got in the car, I immediately cranked the car and turned up the heat switch to MAX so the cold dampness wouldnt start my sniffles. SMH.
