My 1st Experience at Great Day Houston

 

My fellow Houston Fashion Blogger Sarah Shah took this picture.  Thanks Sarah!!! 😀

I had opportunity to attend Great Day Houston with hostess Debra Duncan on Tues 10/2/12. For those of you not in the Houston Area, Debra Duncan is a local celebrity who has her own TV show that airs Mon-Fri 9am-10. She has a wide variety of topics and guest on her show. She also does a great job interacting with her audience.  The show is taped at the TV Station KHOU 11 which is a CBS affiliate station.

We arrived at 8am to get info and to prep for the live taping of the show. The director and producers gave directions as well as explained the shows policies and procedures.After going through security we waited a little while to go inside the show.

  We weren’t able to take pics during the show but I was able to capture a few right before we started.

There was a guest giving recommendations on great wine under $10.  He even found one at Trader Joe’s for $2.99 that he referred to as 2 Buck Chuck. LOL! Gonna have to try it. 🙂

After the show, Debra Duncan mingled and took pictures with the audience members.

Unfortunately, I missed my chance to take a picture with Debra Duncan when I went back to the green room to meet the guest. 🙁 Hopefully I’ll get another opportunity to go on the show.  I did however get to talk to her live on tv so that’s pretty cool!!! 🙂  See the clip here. 

The first guest I was able to meet was Houston Fashion Designer Jonathan Blake.  I’m so glad I got a chance to talk to him because he was debuting his Spring 2013 Clothing line the next day.  I wouldn’t have known about it or gotten the opportunity to go had I not been at the show.

I was also able to see up close the Valobra jewelry that was used to accessorize his pieces on the show.  These pictures don’t do them justice.  Just to give you a hint of how gorgeous and expensive they were, they came with their own bodyguard who was standing next to the items as we looked at them. I should’ve taken a picture, but I didn’t think about it at the time.  Ha ha ha!  He was on the stage while the show was being taped.  Debra even gave him a shout out. LOL!

These beautiful pieces are from Temple Street by the lovely Ana Mae.  She was so sweet.  She’d already put up her jewelry but brought it back out  just so I could take pictures. 🙂

Last but not least is a picture with my fellow Houston Fashion Bloggers Sarah and Valerie.  Sarah made it possible for me to be able to come to the show as well as go to the green room.  Thank so much Sarah for everything.  🙂
