This past Sunday I attended A benefit fashion show by Styleta for charity:water. Styleta is a student-run nonprofit organization that uses fashion to nurture the community. Their mission is to generate sustainable funding through re-selling designer clothing-collected through sponsorships and donations- and then giving all proceeds to charity organizations.
Charity:water is a non-profit organization bringing clean, safe drinking water to people in developing nations.
All of the clothing worn in the show was donated by various brands, designers and stores such as Beacon’s Closet and Rehna Pendse. Jewelry designer Guenevere Rodriguez was there with her gorgeous necklaces on display and for purchase.

NYC Fashion Bloggers Meetup Group

I attended this event with a few members of the
All of the clothes in the runway show were later up for sale along with some other pieces.
I scored a dress (tulle of course my new obsession since watching old episodes of Sex and the City) and a nice bell skirt as well for $50 total..fashion STEELE!!!!
There were also some delicious snacks and goodie bags!
Outfit
Top: American Apparel Body suit, see it worn differently HERE!
Skirt: H&M (just got it and love love love it!)
Jacket: Target..yeah i know right…see it HERE with my other Target finds
Shoes: Nine West
Bag: Forever 21
Necklace: Swapped at my Shop & Swap Event
There was also a bested dressed contest for a DKNY watch and guess who won…ME!
I love the whole concept of STYLETA since you all know how much I love thrifting.
My Thrift and the City shopping tours was born out of my love for thrifting and finding hidden gems among donated goods to places like Buffalo Exchange, Goodwill and Housing Works Thrift Shops.
It’s funny how I’ve been dying for a tulle skirt and end up finding the perfect 2 in the same week. I have literally been on ebay and etsy everyday searching. I love it when this happens.
What are your fashion obsessions right now?

    I love that skirt you have on and those two items you got are a steal. Could you tell me how did you find your blogger group because I’m looking for a blogger group in Chicago. If you can send me a message in my inbox or something that would be great.

    Well, I’m sure you know my fashion obsession of the moment: those darn JC Suebee flatforms that are alluding me! Very cute skirt! It’s the perfect tulle for a grownup and will wear well over the years!

    I love the skirt you are wearing. I’m obsessed with tulle too. I have a skirt I have yet to wear, but I’m inspired.

    You deserved to win you looked great!

    My current fashion obsession consist of anything that was designed with a heavy emphasis on the rulers lines and edges. 🙂

    Just discovered you through Tinfoils Tiaras, and am now following! Love the play on words in your blog name. The frothy white of your skirt paired with an edgy necklace works really well.
