Goodwill Prom Shop Event

 I had the most incredible weekend!
 First, on Saturday morning I got to be the guest of honor at Goodwill for their Prom Shop event! Goodwill had nearly 1,000 dresses for people to choose from for this special event. I was there to offer fashion advice and help everyone find their perfect dress! It was so much fun! I think dressing people is one of my favorite things to do! It's like playing barbies but for real!


 one of my favorite dresses- it went fast!

 love this vintage tulle dress!
 They even had dressy shoes to go with the dresses!

 this gorgeous redhead found the most perfect light lime green tulle gown






 This pretty girl chose the "Belle" dress!
 This is Meg and her mom from New Albany. They were my favorite people I worked with all day! Meg tried on about 10 dresses but ended up going with my pick- a red gown with some sparkle on the bodice! Yay! She was so sweet, she came back and thanked me for my help! It was an honor!


 this happy girl left with a black gown with hot pink accents!

What a fun day! Thank you to Goodwill for inviting me to be there! I just think it's so cool that girls don't have to spend a fortune to get an amazing dress to wear for the big dance! That is something I am very proud to be a part of!

More on my big weekend in the next post!

  1. I was actually there and saw you at the event, but I didn't get a chance to stop and talk to you, because I was in a hurry to get back home to set up my daughters birthday party. I went early to get the beautiful white dress that they had on the Manichean, because I wanted it for a wedding dress someday. I ended up getting it, and it fits me perfect. That is the best Goodwill I think.

  4. My goodness. How did you not go mad and buy twenty yourself? I would have been out of control. I love after-five for everyday. I cannot wait for my trip to the States later this year. I will be sending home boxes of thrift store purchases. How do I tell my boy that I will need to visit at least one thrift store a day for the duration of our holiday? Any help with selling that to him??? Thanks for sharing.
