Akron bloggers check out Versona Accessories!

A Versona Accessories recently opened in Akron's Summit mall and Versona kindly sent a few Akron bloggers giftcards to go check it out and review. You can see what Jessica from Midwest Muse got here and what Rachel from For the Birds got here




Both bloggers were impressed with the selection and customer service at the store. The employees were friendly and helpful and selection did not disappoint! The store has an abundance of jewelry, a great selection of tights and also clothes. Definitely worth checking out!

Noto Fashion Show

The Noto "Northside Fashion Show" took place in the Northside Lofts, which was a very nice industrial space in downtown Akron. The space worked well with the show and the collections. The event was sold out and with good reason. Noto is Akron's own upscale independent boutique.

The collections this year were beautiful. They were full of chiffon, floppy hats, white material, summer colors, and dresses with beautiful movement.

In addition to the beautiful runway show, there was also a live band, runway voting, sponsor tables, a pop up boutique where attendees could purchase the exact clothes seen on the runway, adorable reusable tote bags, and so much more!

The show was much different than last year, but still had the same authentic enjoyable well done feeling as last year.

If you weren't able to make it this year, please do yourself a favor and attend next year! Akron isn't exactly the place of excitement, so when something this awesome occurs and is 100% local, why wouldn't you check it out?!

Even if you missed it, be sure to head on over to Noto where you can enjoy the lovely owner Lauren or one of her staff members. It's always a treat and the boutique itself is beautiful, welcoming, and an all around fun place to be.

NOTO's Northside Fashion Show

If you're from the Akron area you may have seen the cute little invitations for The Northside Fashion Show floating around.


NOTO is one of the top locally owned fashion boutiques here in Akron and us 330 bloggers can't get enough!

The fashion show is going to be extra good this year because it's going to feature a Local Designer Challenge.. The audience will get to view multiple designers' collections and then vote on our favorite via text message. The winning designer's collection will then be featured in NOTO this summer - how much fun is that?

Viewers will also get to see NOTO's summer collection and can even buy anything from the collection right after the show!
  Tickets to the show are $30 and that includes: fashion show access, drink tokens and an exclusive NOTO gift! You can buy tickets online here.

Northside Lofts
21 Furnace Street
Akron, Ohio 44308

Even if you can't make the show this year, be sure to stop into the store on Maiden Lane off of West Market. Click here for the address and store hours. You won't regret it! 

Hope to see you at the show!
