Despite the stormy start, the Ft Lauderdale Housewives In The City monthly social for August was a big success. This month the theme was all about celebrating the "Mermaid Life" we live here on the beautiful Fort Lauderdale Beach. So in addition to some awesome local featured businesses we had some great swimsuit brands and local models showcase some swimsuit fashion that is available to everyone. With over 100 attendees, they all enjoyed great swag bags, yummy food from North Beach Village, cocktails from the Royal Palm Pool Bar, DJ beats and a fun fashion show.

Ft lauderdale Housewives Swimsuit Fashion Show, hosted by Mandy Carter
You can't celebrate the salty life without showcasing some beautiful swimsuits. So I partnered with some fabulous local brands to show some of their collections. With the help of some beautiful local models, we had a fantastic swimsuit fashion show mid-event!

As the host for the runway shows on Thursday and Friday of the 2019 Fort lauderdale Fashion Week, I wanted to bring people together to mingle with the models and designers before the big event. So I hosted a Pre Party at Good Spirits Fifth & Fed. Over 80 people joined me last night to celebrate the world of fashion and community. It was a great way to kickoff the runway shows!
