Follow Tampa Bay Fashion Week with the Deal Divas
Ok, now that that's out of the way...
Each year we bring you plenty of coverage of Tampa Bay Fashion Week, but we're doing it even bigger this year. It's the fifth birthday for our city's very own couture collective, and to celebrate, organizers have planned a full week of events culminating in a runway show of original creations from some of the area's designers. Get all the event information here. Your Deal Divas will be at every event, tweeting, taking Instagram photos and recording all the outragous looks we see. And we want you involved!
But you're like, "Wait. I have to take my kids to karate and figure out if Mr. Nubs the cat ate my car keys. I can't go to fashion shows." Of course we'd love to see you at the events, but we also want to see YOUR fashion in YOUR everyday life, cat car keys and all. Fashion in Tampa Bay is different than it is in New York, and we want to love and celebrate it for real. Adore the Target shoes you have on? See a shirt at the mall that no person should ever wear? Find a great deal on a bag? Make your own necklace out of a Diet Coke can and glitter? Take an Instagram and post it with the hashtag #tbfashion. The best pictures and tweets and links will appear here, in our Storify!
Follow me on Twitter at @stephhayes all week for real-time coverage at events, and check back often for Storify updates. And don't forget to pick up a tbt* tomorrow or a Tampa Bay Times Sunday for our story about five fabulous closets in Tampa Bay. We'll bring it to you on the blog tomorrow as well, but you're not going to want to miss the beautiful photos from some of our most talented Times photographers in person. I'll give you a hint. One of our subjects has not one, not two, but three closets in her home. It's like that, y'all.
Don't forget to tag... #tbfashion!
