It’s no secret that we here at Daisy Tribe are in love with designer Stella Carakasi’s amazing style. So we were excited to be approached by the Stella team to take part in a special fashion show celebrating a collaboration between Stella Carakasi, Italian designer Adora Bags, and popular lifestyle blogger Adrienne Shubin from The Rich Life (on a Budget). The Spring Luxe Event at the Stella Studio in Berkeley was held to showcase Adora’s limited edition Adora by Adrienne handbag, which was inspired by Stella Carakasi’s spring 2015 collection.
While I was behind the scenes documenting the event, Janaia and Kendra walked the runway along with Adrienne and some new friends. It was such a fun evening with an amazing turnout of support for the collaboration.
When I arrived, I found Kendra and Janaia backstage – they may have been practicing walking in towering heels and willing themselves not to fall! I also ran into Adrienne and Tamera Beardsley, who flew in from Santa Monica for the event.
Each of the models chose a day look and evening look from Stella’s spring collection, styled with Adora bags and jewelry from the Stella Studio, including some gorgeous pieces from local designer Janet Harrer.
Here are a few more photos from the night. In addition to the fashion show, attendees enjoyed catering by Whole Foods Market Gilman, Landmark Vineyards, and L’Artisan Gourmet Parisian Macarons. The raspberry macaron by L’Artisan was by far the best I’ve ever tasted – and they also made some adorable yellow and black macarons to coordinate with the colors and pattern from Stella’s spring 2015 line and the Adora by Adrienne bag. If you’ve never had one before, you are seriously missing out! You can order on their website – or if you’re one of the lucky ones, you might find them at your local Whole Foods Market. In addition to the drool-worthy food, guests mingled and shopped the night away. Yarra did an amazing job as stylist and emcee, and I loved hearing from both Stella and Adrienne about how they have inspired each other.
We had such a fun night supporting Stella Carakasi, Adora Bags, and Adrienne. We’ve heard that orders of the limited edition Adora by Adrienne bag have been so successful that they extended pre-orders for an additional week – which means you still have time to get your hands on one! And if you’d like to see more details and photos from the event, please check out these posts by Adrienne and Tamera. Thanks for reading, and I hope you all have a great weekend!
