On the Scene: Mimosas and Mixed Prints Brunch

For those who truly enjoy taking fashion risks, mixed prints is a statement you’ve tried at least once.  We don’t live in a world where matching is necessary! Because of this, the idea of a brunch that fuses prints and food together is a brunch I want to attend!  Sunday afternoon my blogger pal Jessica (Thee Shopaholic) and I mixed our prints and filled our bellies at the Mimosa’s and Mixed Prints Brunch held at Bedford Hall.  Allow me to set the scene.  Dimly lit room with a comfortable, home-style ambiance.  Leather chairs, small round tables strategically placed all over the dark hardwood floors.  Brunch set up in a buffet style, allowing you to pick and choose your food selection.  On the menu; Mimosas, Bellinis, omelettes, french toast, waffles, chicken, grits, mixed fruit and codfish cakes.  Something for everyone.

The hostess for the day was the lovely Mikaela of Vetu de Joy (an online shop) and blogger/vlogger Sunita.  Both Sunita and Mikaela wore pieces from Vetu de Joy shop.

Mid way through brunch there was a fashion show to highlight new pieces from the Vetu de Joy.  I was captivated by a lot of the clothing from the line.  A lot of the pieces are items I could see myself in.  What stood out to me the most was the diversity of each model that represented the diversity in each garment.  My favorite look was the long sleeve creme and black spotted top and the leather culottes.  Take a look at the other looks to walk the runway.

My favorite part of the day, besides the food and drinks of course, was watching the fashionistas in their prints.  Some women opted to not mix things up and that’s completely fine!  Take a look at the beautiful, fashionable ladies that attended the Mimosas and Mixed Prints Brunch

Mikaela wore a bright orange top and paired it with white, purple and yellow semi-floral pants. Love the way her yellow sandals tied the entire look together! Both top and bottom from Vetu de Joy.

I loved the casual simplicity of this look. The blue shirt highlights the blue in her African print skirt. Her nude heels work perfectly with the skirt as well!

I am a sucker for a matching set! This ensemble looked great with her blonde cut.

Tracy Chambers Vintage was a vendor at the event. I got to try on this GREAT vintage jacket. Sadly, it did not fit me *insert sad face here*. Visit TracyChambersVintage.com/shop for more one of a kind pieces!

What’s an event without a sponsor? Dark and Lovely and The Wrap Life sponsored an amazing gift bag for both natural and relaxed hair. Guess who was the lucky winner of the natural gift bag? MOI!
