Southern Women’s Show 2011

You can't get lost with this huge directory!

If you have never been to a Southern Women’s Show (SWS) then you are missing a treat. Not only is this show for women, but it’s male friendly and you can buy gifts for the whole family (pets included)! The sis and I went to our first show several years ago when our dog was in a fashion show. This show travels from city to city around the south and still has upcoming dates.

The thing we enjoyed most this year was the warm individuals that we stopped to chat with throughout the day. We spent over 5 hours perusing the aisles looking for unique and fab finds and this show didn’t dissappoint. If you are looking for a show to excite, entertain, engage, and amuse, then look no further!

Stillman College models!

For four days fashion, food and shopping fanatics could come together and experience a show that was truly fun and southern. Shermika and I saw a fashion show, tasted divine chicken cooked with House-Autry products, chatted with Nichole who works with Glory Foods (delish…try today), bought countless self-gifts (you know you shop for yourself too) and even had a hair make-over while we talked to Macy’s and Carol’s Daughter representatives about products we adore.

Extremely warm ladies from House-Autry!

Cammie from Salon Lisa Brown in McCalla, AL. Check her out!

Overall we enjoyed the fashion show and will share more pics soon, but I didn’t like the fact that some of the models had on wrinkled clothes. An iron is key to a professional and well polished look, which some of the models lacked.

F-A-B finds!!!

On another note, we found some fab jewelry from Sam, a vendor who owns Designs of Elegance, if you are going to any of the SWS’s upcoming shows, Sam is a must-see. His pieces are uniquely beautiful and honestly they all spoke to me. We bought several pieces and look forward to shopping to find the perfect outfits to pair them with.

Shermika and I often joke that I am lucky, but to be honest we both are highly favored and blessed. While at the show I won $20 and spent it on a Shake ‘N Slush cup. I will share more about that at a later date. We shopped our little hearts out, entered countless giveaways, tasted divine treats (including Blue Bell Icecream), met some wonderful people, and most importantly enjoyed each other’s company.

Check out more pics below and tell us if you’ve been to a SWS before. Any thoughts?

  2. Great pictures! You all have way more energy than I do. I love the SWS but can never stay longer than two hours. I went this year and had fun, but seems like you ladies had a ball. I'm going with y'all next year!

  3. Girl, we had a great time! I think the hair took up about an hour or so, but it was really nice. Tamika won show bucks and I got a call last week that I won a Dreamlands basket–so we were some lucky belles! We def must do it next year together!!!
