Last week my two beautiful friends (pictured above) Whitney & Allison hosted my firstNoonday Collection trunk show for me! I fell in love with Noonday Collection after I met it's founder, Jessica, at the Together for Adoption conference last fall in Austin. She is just another god fearing, orphan loving, stylish gal and she started this whole thing called Noonday Collections. She tells the story better on the site: http://www.noondaycollection.com/our-story.html. It started as a fundraiser for her families adoption from Rwanda and out of it was born this beautiful company that's passion a is to connect you with the lives of artisans struggling for a better future while styling you along the way. fashion and design are a vehicle for opportunity and change. you, too, can be a voice for the oppressed! (from the website)
You all know how I LOVE accessories and when I found an avenue to both buy stylish accessories AND help women artisans all over the world support their families. It's something I've become very passionate about. One might say that I'm good at sales - because when I find something I love and that I believe in...I want to tell EVERYONE!
The show was super fabulous. Friends from all different places in my life - my photography community, church community, my few adoption community friends, CBS family!! It was pretty overwhelming to me that people wanted to hear my voice and support not only me but also for the poor. Thank you friends for helping us get to sky high sales that evening. I think we broke a record ;) I am looking forward to styling you with MORE noonday gear along the way. Way too blessed!
