I've been volunteering in a variety of roles with, nonprofit network of college students who collect donations of designer fashion to sell online in order to raise funding for women's initiatives. Primarily I do makeup for photo shoots and runway show (pics of that to come!) and sometimes I assist with styling or creative directing or event planning or whatever else that needs to be done. It's a lot of fun and it's great to help out knowing that my work goes to benefit charity! Last week we did a runway show. It went great - aside from a thick layer of glitter on the stage causing models to slip and slide in their heels 5 feet up in the air, (rage, rage, RAGE) but we don't talk about that. Instead, we'll show you this awesome video made of the show. There was a DJ and a cool hip hop artist (DJ Whizz Kid and Ryan Mcdaniels, respectively) plus fashions by Pitaya and Dope Couture. Enjoy!

Shoes that I need in my life

I love Jeffrey Campbell. Its a love from afar, though, because I can't afford anything :( but I pine for JC shoes constantly. I have already talked about the Mary Roks wedges - though I just found out they are for sale at Urban Outfitters! I think I like gray best, but these two are growing on me:

UO also has my other two Jeffrey Campbell loves, the Jeffrey Campbell Suede Lace Up Wedge:

and I just saw these and fell in love:

oh and also these.

Christmas, anyone?
