On Saturday March 29, 2014, my husband I attended the Junior League of San Jose Fashion Show Fundraiser. This amazing charity event is close to my heart since I have worked on five past fashion show fundraisers while I was an active member of the Junior League. Now that I am a Sustainer in the league, it is fun to attend the event, donate, and enjoy the creativity of the current active members who worked hard on the event.

The fashion show fundraiser is held every other year and event chairs have been known to work over forty hours per week leading up to the event. I remember putting in long hours when I worked on the fundraiser, although not nearly as many hours as the event chairs! This years’ event had a Vegas theme and after the fashion show there were mock gambling tables and a delicious dessert buffet!

Everyone was decked out for the gala fundraiser in beautiful formal and cocktail gowns. There was a large amount of navy blue and sequin dresses in attendance! I wore navy too, so perhaps navy is the new black! 😉 Also, I am currently in a “one shoulder” phase, so I knew I wanted to wear this dress by Laundry to the event as soon as I spotted it!

My apologies for the iPhone photos. They are not as clear as the dslr photos I normally post. I wanted to share this fun event with you, and of course what I wore to it, so, I decided to post the iPhone photos. I hope you don’t mind 🙂

Thank you to everyone who came out on September 14, 2013 for the Santana Row Style Stroll! The event was a huge success and raised much-needed funds for the Junior League of San Jose. It was really fun meeting so many of you and talking about the fall trends!
I was stationed as a Guest Stylist at Cole Haan which has a fabulous selection of on-trend accessories for fall 2013 including leopard print handbags and pointed toe pumps! If you were unable to attend the Style Stroll at Santana Row last Saturday, please try to stop by the Cole Haan store soon! They have an amazing selection of shoes and handbags; as well as the perfect flats for everyday!
A few of my picks from Cole Haan’s fall collection are below. Thank you for supporting the Junior League of San Jose at the Santana Row Style Stroll!
