Go From Day to Night at the Essence Festival with Ease

The Essence Festival is finally here!!!!

As one of the largest festivals in the country,  it goes without saying that EF is jammed packed with lots of things to do and experience. For those in attendance, may I suggest downloading the Essence Festival app, if you haven’t already, to stay on top of everything happening around Nola. There’s a long list of day parties (I’ll be here on Saturday), workshops and panels, meet and greets and of course the Fashion Closet where I will be giving style consultations in the Convention Center- Don’t forget to stop by! At any rate, your schedule is bound to be packed and potentially leave little to no time to get ready for the evening concert. They are definitely not t to be missed –  check out my last video for Essence with a couple of quick tips to take you from day to night with ease.
