Pose Helps Solve Your Wardrobe Woes

Ever wondered what to wear on a daily bases? I know I have. What's the old adage again? Closet full of clothes but nothing to wear.

Sometimes, all we need is a little inspiration.

I have been an avid user of Pose for some time now. I browse it often to get outfit ideas.

Now, they have came up with an ingenious way to help you dress in the morning, rain or shine.

Simply sign up with your email and zipcode, I believe it only works in the US at the moment.  The service will be available June 11th, 2013!

The event is held to raise money and awareness to the Beauty Night Society.

A great charity organization aiming to build self esteem and change the lives of participants through wellness, life skills development and makeovers. The Beauty Nights take place at shelters, health care facilities, drop in centres, and transition homes. In 2012, they served 200 impoverished women each week. Since 2000, they have given 26,000 makeovers.

It is such a beautiful cause. We all know how amazing we can feel when we get a new hairdo or makeup professionally applied or pampers ourselves in anyway. Great to see that there is an organization out there that reaches out to the less fortunate and remind them how good it can feel to look the best you can.

The event is filled with amazing fashion sashaying down the runway. Here are the designers involved.

My Thrift Chic Journey

Today is the first day of Eco Fashion Week, I am actually watching the live streaming as I type out this post.

April 6th is the day that I got the call. From a simple twitter inquiry to conversing with the lovely Sonja Henrickson over the phone my Thrift Chic journey for Eco Fashion Week began.

Eco Fashion Week, Thrift chic challenge by value village

$500, 7 Value Villages and 15 outfits later, brings me to the day before the show.

I am no stranger to trudging through the isles in search of that next one-of-a-kind treasure. It felt like this challenge was made for me!

$500 goes a long way at Value Village, especially paired with their current 30% off promotion.

My involvement even drew the attention of Social Mod PR and Rachel wrote such a lovely piece on my experience for Thrifty and Green.

I hope my collection can do the eco-community proud. I love the idea of being Thrift Chic for any situation and under any circumstance.

Aside from saving massive dough, you are also helping out charitable organizations and being Eco-conscious to boot.

I can't wait to post the photos of the show afterwards. In the mean time, here is a teaser with a tally of all the money I spent on this collection. Thank you Savings Pass for making it possible for me to complete the challenge.

Here are the four seasons and how affordable they are.

VFW Day2 Emerging Designers Dandilion Wind Opaine

Happy Monday! Sorry for the delay. Here is a recap of VFW FW 2013 Emerging Designers Show courtesy of Iulia Agnew Photography.

The show stopping designer that capped up the show took all our breath away.

Under Dandilion Wind Opaine's skillful hands, ordinary yarn and threads transforms into whimsical works of art.

The entire show, from models, to hair, to makeup and finally the music all paint a magical picture that transports the audience to an enchanted forest by the sea side.

Each look, with the beat stole my heart and kept it safe and filled with wonder in a land far away from here. Like poetry in motion.

The woods are calling, calling, calling...
