Emjay C's Fall Fashion and Beauty "Sip & Shop"

Hello Friends!

This weekend was action packed. Emjay C's Fall Fashion and Beauty "Sip and Shop" which featured its very own Fashion and Beauty panel was a blast!  The attendees had some great questions and the panelists had the answers. Shayla Courtney, virtual stylist, looked chic in her all black. We loved Stephanie Whitman’s (Drunk on Vogue) statement necklace and stripes. Of course, clothing designer Tabitha Sewer was styled in one of her fabulous mini-skirts. Jordan Nolan Taylor, fashion and life style blogger's, striped pencil skirt was certainly an Emjay favorite and Lakia Thompson, healthy hair stylist, was pretty in her peplum top and pumps. Panel hostess, Wanda Mickens rocked out! Her all black with red accessories and funky hair-style, was classy and edgy.

The vendors at the “Sip and shop” included seventeen business women showcasing their products and services. Emjay C was so determined to make this event a success because we are a true advocate of entrepreneurship. We love to see ambitious people working to build their dream.  As I shared with a lot of the participants, success is not just in making that immediate sale. It is just as important, if not more important, to present yourself in a way that makes customers want to find you and come back to see you!

We saw some beautiful table displays and perfect presentations. A few examples include:

Leaand Diggs of "Diggin Her Roots" who joined us from Northern Virginia and grabbed the attention of shoppers with her African print skirts, dashikis, and more. Her display was neatly organized with a great selection. She was perfectly poised and a beautiful representation of her brand.

Vanita Baugh of C.U.T.E. graced us with one of the most unique sunglasses collections, and her items were affordable. I had to grab me a pair. Not only did she look great, she made sure shoppers were pleased with their sunglasses and other accessories as well!

What can I say about Bonnie's Boutique? Bonnie was ready for the crowd with shoes, accessories, jackets, handbags and more. What's even more impressive is that Bonnie has a storefront that carries items that are just as wonderful as those displayed on Saturday. Bonnie's Boutique is a wonderful example of sophistication and class.

A special recognition to the youngest entrepreneur represented at the “Sip & Shop”.  Miss Amari Randall of IRAMARKS custom pens did an excellent job! We are so impressed with Amari’s talent and ambition. It is not easy to be a business owner and she is already off to a good start.  We congratulate Amari’s parents, Brandon and Monique Randall on raising such a pleasant and driven “youngpreneur”.

There were so many other great vendors; we could take all day to describe them all!
