Quilt Exhibit - Fabric of Love by Henry G. Holmes

Today's OOTD isnt really anything new. I wore the same there here but this time I have on shorter leggins. Im not really sure how I can change up a long tunic, other than to switch the color of the tank and the color of the leggins. This time am wearing short black leggins. I have worn this look with long black and short white leggins too. Got any other ideas?

tunic - LaneBryant Outlet

leggins - INC Macys

shoes - Avenue

bracelet - Andie's Accessory giveaway
(I did get a new pair of shoes for this outfit, lol. I bought these to wear in Cancun.. so I thought I would give them a test run before the vacation. You know, break them in a little)
LAST NIGHT was a really exciting evening. I went to a Quilt Exhibit - Fabric of Love hosted by my father, Henry G. Holmes at The Patterson Theatre in Baltimore, MD.
I was so proud and excited to see his name on the marquee of the venue.

You were greeted in the entry foyer with quilts by Henry Holmes. He really makes a wonderful quilt. And its amazing to see how his techniques have changed over the years. These three are really nice. A great welcome to the exhibit.

The evolution of his quilting technique has included imaging his photos in thread. Each of these photos are threaded images. He started as a photographer, so that is still part of his passion. And he comes from a lineage of creative people - painters, singers, etc.

Here is Dad and I at the exhibit. You can see some of his work in the background. He has started doing quilt paintings. Its pretty awesome to see in person too.

Since this was the OpenHouse for the Fabric of Love Exhibit, we were honored to have Dad's friends, Bliss and Aishah doing live music (electric violin) and poetry. They were excellent at setting the ambiance for the event. It was a great night!
