This weekend I had the absolute pleasure and opportunity to attend the BRAG Gala. It was more than beautiful words can not describe this night! After this weekend BRAG became less of an organization and more of a sisterhood. A "sorority" feel overtook my mind.

He was intrigued by Alicia. She was not. He was still fly though haha
We were OBSESSED with the WHO.A.U window display visual!
We actually went fabric shopping first and it is amazing how into Fashion the three of us are, having a whole conversation about collections and outfits we see able with just looking at fabric and breaking down the visual with this window display.
I also purchased two patches a blue W (Who.A.U) and a Red C for my name duh! This store reminds me of Polo Rugby especially with the Patches. Who.A.U is a Korean line that stands for "Who Are You", a new brand with a passion for the California lifestyle and a vintage luxury feel. "Brave. Original. Innovative"
He was as cute as an 'Angel' and had the hair of a Goddess!!
We ran into these cuties. Although I am using their individual pictures for my Fall Fashion Piece, I had to put them here. Look at how swagged out they are! To dope for words! And the one on the far right caught my eye first with his swag. I mean how can you resist. Is he not gorgeous?!
