Charity Fashion Show

First off I want to say a huge thank you to all the wonderful comments you lovely people left on the last blog! A common yet rarely brought up topic with an interesting take from all your different views, really puts things in perspective with fashion, how you wear it for yourself, or for others-and quite the perspective those crazy pants!

A few weekends ago I was invited to attend a fashion show in San Francisco, but not just any show- the largest show in the Bay Area. A two hour show featuring local and world renowned designers from Tracy Reese, Naeem Khan to Antik Batik, all for a charitable cause- providing prom dresses for underpriveledged girls! If you follow me on twitter, you probably noticed a tweet regarding front seats at this show a few weekends ago-I just happened to ask the bf to tweet something festive, since my hands were full- taking pictures and jotting notes. And the task was completed with a "at a fashion show in SF"....what, that's it? Like the saying goes, if you want something done right, you got to do it yourself; I mean come on- not even an exclamation point! Sheesh--so pardon for the meh tweet, you're guaranteed to get lots more excitement from now on.

Anyways, there I was sitting front row at the Charity Fashion show, surrounded by fierce fashions, a wall of press, some pretty recognized bloggers, and all the Winter Kate I could handle- it was insane. Here is what I wore to the Fort Mason show and some shots from the evening! Enjoy...
