Designer Dresses Events Fashion Show Fashionable Atlanta Giving Back Mamanista

21st Jeffrey Fashion Cares

August 29, 2013
The 21st Jeffrey Fashion Cares took over  lobby of the American Cancer Society Center in Downtown Atlanta.  Jeffrey Fashion Cares is the largest combined AIDS and breast cancer benefits in the country and the one of Atlanta’s most coveted fashion events!  The event was filled with fashionable Atlanta socialites, stars from Married to Medicine, Big Rich Atlanta and the Atlanta Housewives
Dress, Cache (super old)/ Clutch, Gucci/ Shoes, Christian Louboutin 

This dress is a real throwback.  I dug deep in my closet to find something to wear after ordering a few dresses from Rent the Runway that were cute but just didn’t do it for me.  I wore this beaded dress to my high-school junior year homecoming and a few times since then.  I remember spending way to much on this dress as a 16 year old highschooler!  I think I paid over $200 for it after being on clearance and additional markdowns.  Twenty years later, this dress is still the shizz!  The only reason I can still fit it is because the slip part is made of stretchy thick cotton!

After a cocktail hour and silent auction, models hit the stage in Fall / Winter looks by Dior, Proenza Schouler, Lanvin, Valentino, Erdem, Christopher Kane, Emilio Pucci, Saint Laurent, Nina Ricci, Narciso Rodriguez, Simone Rochas, Junya Watanabe, Dries Van Noten, Mary Katrantzou, Oscar de la Renta, Givenchy, and Simone Rocha.  All of the runway looks were to die for!  Big thanks to Caren West PR for the invite.  I had an amazing time in my old dress : ).
