Fashionable Weekending

Happy Spring!  I hope everyone had a great weekend!  Ours started early on Thursday night at Charleston Fashion Week.  Each year, 5 days of shows take over Marion Square downtown.  There are not only collections featuring famous designers but also an emerging designer competition each night as well as a week-long "rock the runway" model competition.
The featured designer show on Thursday was William Rast, Justin Timberlake's denim brand.  Inside the Belk tent was an awesome vending machine where you could tweet with an event hashtag to dispense a Belk gift card or tee shirt.  With the gift cards I got, I will definitely be heading to Belk soon to buy something I saw on the runway.  I love this top, these jeans, and honestly the whole line.
During the intermission, we got to go backstage with our friend who does all the lighting and watch all the models getting ready for the second half shows.  Seeing the designs, makeup, and hair up close were really cool.  It also confirmed that I could never be a model - those ladies and gents are TALL.  How awesome is the message they see on the way out to the runway?
Before heading back to the shows on Friday, we obviously had to get a few green beers for St. Paddy's Day.  We also made sure to wear green (my ankle pants were green, I promise) to celebrate our favorite holiday.  My friend Gillian joined us on Friday night, too, and we had way too much fun in the photo booth.  I've never seen one with such awesome quality before, and if you're looking for something different for an event, definitely check out Massive Booth.  
Saturday was a full day spent on the kickball diamond.  We played in a memorial tournament and made it to the semi-finals.  A nap promptly followed our day in the sun, and when I was wide awake at 10pm, I decided to cook a full (early) Sunday supper of pulled pork sriracha mac and cheese and pepper jack creamed corn.  It was all amazing, and we will be eating all of it for the next week!  I'll also be sharing the recipes soon.
After some Sunday golf and another helping of our delicious Southern feast, we made it to the theater to see Beauty and the Beast.  It was seriously everything I hoped it would be!  The night ended with lots of March Madness, and even though my bracket is pretty busted, the upsets have been really fun to watch.
Linking up with Biana today for Weekending!
