Under Paris Skies

The Fashion of Goodwill Runway and Auction at the French Embassy took place last night and it was buckets of fun

LOVE THE COAT ON THE LEFT, I STOOD IN LINE BEHIND THE WOMAN WHO PURCHASED IT. IT LOOKED LIKE A MILLION BUCKS ON HER

THE TRENCH-COAT ON THE LEFT WAS ADORABLE

MY FAVORITE DRESS FROM THE RUNWAY, I WAS ONE INCH AWAY FROM BUYING IT

LOVE THE COLOR AND SUBTLE SHINE

There was an amazing array of items up for auction and a sale of all the clothes from the runway at Goodwill prices!!!! It was mayhem! My girlfriend and I managed to fight a few people off and took home a couple of adorable dresses.

More importantly than shopping, I learned about Goodwill’s mission of providing education, training, and career services for people with disadvantages. It’s so wonderful to hear how these services allow individuals to gain personal and financial independence as well as to build their confidence. Such a fun night for such a great cause!! Thanks Em!!
