Last night I attended the Aesthetic Elegance party at Bella. This med spa offers all kinds of face and body-enhancing procedures under the supervision of Dr. Maryann Prewitt. They were promoting a new Botox-alternative, Dysport, that claims to show results in 1-2 days (as opposed to Botox which they said takes 8-10 days) and it apparently lasts longer too. We watched a brave volunteer get it injected into her forehead. For about 30 minutes after the “shots” it looked like she had four big mosquito bites but once they “soaked in” there were no signs of trauma to the skin. I have to admit I’m tempted… We’ll see if my vanity wins out over my nerves. It’s a tight race, for sure. Abi Ferrin was also on hand (on the left in the photo, in her own dress) with a rack full of her gorgeous summer collection of sexy, versatile, beautifully-colored pieces. (I’m wearing her awesome 5-way shirt in the photo and the two models are wearing her dresses.) Check out Abi’s goods at her upcoming Freedom Friday party on Friday and Saturday, June 26 and 27 from 10am-6pm at her studio (1509 South Lamar, #103). She’ll have exclusive styles and specials as well ask tasty cocktails, and 10% of sales will be donated to a cause close to her heart, The Freedom Project. And one last note, scoping out the party scene, I noticed Jeremy Anderson, formerly of The Bachelorette, chatting it up with the other guests. He looked cute as ever in his conservative black pants and blue shirt so I was surprised to see him carrying a motorcycle helmet when he left. Looks like he’s got a wild side…
Plus, new stores are popping up all over the place, including another Reformation and Gregory’s.
