Fashionable Deals for a Great Cause!

Dress for Success is my favorite organization to volunteer for, and when I can give time I do.  I made sure my work schedule allowed me to partake in Shop for Success!, a 4 day pop-up shop offering designer deals at low prices.  I volunteered for the VIP night (Wednesday, December 4th), which was such a fun experience!

I’ve never worked retail before, but I know running a store takes a lot of work.  I arrived ready to jump in and help wherever was needed.  The store looked amazing, which everything nicely organized and many things to look at and purchase.  There was a silent auction, raffle prizes, open bar, a DJ and a photo booth for attendees.  Once 5pm hit, there was a line at the door for anxious ladies ready to enter and shop the night away!

I assisted in the dressing room area, getting ladies in and out, running go backs to the floor and offering my style eye where needed.  They were all playing dress up and everyone looked beautiful in the outfits they chose!  It was busy at times and that kept me moving and grooving while the DJ was spinning the tunes.  I want to open my own boutique one day, so this was helpful for me to get an idea of what it would be like.

At closing, it turned out to be a fabulous night with a great turnout and the best part is that all proceeds go to Dress for Success.  I couldn’t think of a better way to spend my evening, supporting an organization close to my heart that gives back and helps women be prepared for a professional career in several ways.

And guess what?  Shop for Success is open for 2 more days! The hours for today are 10am – 8pm and Saturday 10am – 6pm.  There are some great Holiday buys and you should bring your girlfriends.  Thanks to everyone who made this event happen!

The Final Rose Fashions: Going For the Gold

I didn’t watch this season of The Bachelor, but I did tune in to the finale and after the final rose to check out the fashions that Catherine Guidici and Lindsay Yenter would wear.  Out of all the seasons of this show, I was definitely underwhelmed with the selection of dresses this year for the Final Rose.  Gold and silver dresses?  In Thailand? Yawn.  They were more dressed for the Golden Globes instead of for an engagement to Sean Lowe.  Don’t get me wrong, but I love David Meister.  They both had the opportunity to pick out dresses and they both went for metallic.

Catherine went for the gold and got the man! Nice choice in that regard, but I think she would’ve looked even more stunning in a royal blue or berry dress.

Lindsay picked a silver metallic racer back gown that didn’t do much for her cleavage.  A yellow halter dress would have suited her more.  And the runner up gets the silver.  Coincidence in the color choices?

During After the Final Rose, Lindsay came out in a sexy “I may not have won the prize but I look hot” dress” by Nightcap Clothing.  It was white, showing that she is still the innocent angel ready to get married!

Catherine came out and reunited with Sean in a DVF navy blue lace dress.  Really?  Where’s the color? Are you going to a funeral? This dress is sold at Bloomingdale’s and comes in several other colors such as pink, turquoise and red.  She would’ve looked 10 times better in one of those options.  Lindsay actually looked way hotter than Catherine this time around, and they did almost mirror black and white trend.  C’mon ladies, show me some more spice that that and don’t be afraid of bright hues!

Do you agree with my style choices?  Well, I wish Catherine and Sean a lifetime of bliss.  Looking forward to next season to see what Des will wear to her final rose!
