Tampa Bay Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2017

While browsing the web a couple of weeks ago, I found out that cities in the US like Tampa and Orlando have their own fashion week. I used to cover Philippine Fashion Week so discovering that was pretty exciting. I hurriedly emailed the organizers of Tampa Bay Fashion Week about the possibility of gaining access to this exclusive event. Luckily, they still got two seats left for the September 23 runway show so Chad and I got to see the new designs to be released in spring/summer 2017 (Thanks, Nancy!).

Every year since 2008, proceeds from the shows go to charity. This year, the beneficiary of #TBFW2016 is PACE Center for Girls, an organization that helps girls and young women build a better future through education, training, and counseling.

Fourth of July in Ybor City

I’ve been in the US for more than a month now. I’m still adjusting to my new environment and so far I’m doing okay. Florida weather is similar to the Philippines’ so I didn’t have a hard time acclimating. I don’t really miss the Philippines, but I do miss my loved ones and pets back home.

It’s now summer here but it has been really humid outside. I learned that during the summer, Tampa Bay often gets thunderstorms almost every afternoon, earning it the title “lightning capital of the US.” This city is well-known for thunderstorms that it even named its hockey team the Tampa Bay Lightning (a.k.a. Bolts).
