Charity Fashion Challenge Redesign!

Dress for Success Central Virginia's:
  "What Haute to Wear"

I was  so fortunate to participate in a great evening of charity fashion redesign.  Dress for Success is an organization that provides career attire and development tools to women  in  Central Virginia (all throughout the US too!).  It is all through donation but some of those donations are, well, not very wearable.  Especially the lovely hot  turquoise bedazzled skirt I found in my mystery bag.  Unless they're interviewing for the ice capades, that one might not be appropriate.

So what to do with all those unwearables but great donations?  They hosted an evening of fashion runway redesign!  Local area designers were given a mystery bag of clothes and had free reign to overhaul those into runway worthy looks. 

We strut the runway and won amazing prizes from local clothing, jewelry, and resale shops!  I had a great time refashioning and helping raise money for a great cause.
