My Clothes Encounter... Secondhand Chic

This weekend I finally had a chance to attend Kaira Akita’s A Clothes Encounter. We know her talent on screen in Tyler Perry’s Why Did I Get Married & The Family That Preys, but A Clothes Encounter is her best performance yet. She has developed a luxury consignment concept that truly re-defines buying new-to-you fashion.

The selection of fashionable items including shoes, accessories and clothing, was just the right mix: from trendy to classic. So there was something there to suit everyone’s style.

Professional wardrobe stylist, Erica Dias, is also available for VIP shoppers to get assistance and advice as they shop for items that will complement their style & budget.

Not to mention the complimentary food, drinks, and great networking….this is one event that a budget fashionista should not miss. It is truly an upscale, chic and guilt-free shopping experience at its best.

One satisfied shopper, Jane Washington said it was her second time attending A Clothes Encounter. “I brought 10 friends with me this time,” she said. “It is a fabulous event with great networking and quality clothing”

I was also excited to see my sorority sister Amy, one of the VIP Bag Sponsors, promoting her new clothing line Good&Brown- Expressivewear for the hued wonders of the world. Check out her online store at

The next A Clothes Encounter is scheduled for Sunday, Dec 13 at Like The River Salon, 240 Highland Ave. 4pm-7pm
