Who Wore What? ~ Smile for Hope 2012

Today marked the third annual Smile for Hope event at Eagle Vale to benefit Safe Journey, a local non-profit for victims of domestic violence.  The event was organized by Jennifer Lathrop of Sweet Pickle Photography.

For a $30.00 donation, families received a portrait sitting and a digital photo by Sweet Pickle. They ate,  shopped, and raised money for a great cause.  All of the vendors were local women business owners and there was a representative from Safe Journey there with information about the organization.  It was great to see so many people come together for a lovely afternoon to raise money and awareness for domestic violence prevention.

In addition to shopping, raising money for charity, selling raffle tickets, and shamelessly promoting my blog, I couldn't help but spy out some great fashion.  Look at who wore what at Smile for Hope:
Erin Roth at her Scentsy booth.
Eshakti dress, Payless shoes,
FahSye mango wood bracelet, Joel Halen glass necklace
Sarena Gates (left) in Wet Seal dress, Rue 21 shoes,
and Motives Cosmetics.
Hair and makeup by Katie Altobelli (right)

Lia Sophia bracelet, and Dankso shoes.

Sara Eck, bargain shopper and owner of
Big City Bags and Jewelry.
You should have seen my face when she told me
she bought her dress  at Sears for $3.99!
She paired it with black boots, vintage leggings,
and a bag and jewelry from her own collection.  
Love the layered bracelets!!!
Fun, affordable, vintage style jewels.
(Most of her jewelry is under $19!)
Amy Michaels (another frugal fashionista) told me that
everything she was wearing was $10 or less!!!
 TJ Maxx boots, jeans and top from the VOA,
 Target dress and jewelry from Big City.
Brandie Antenucci looked so put together
 in this casual, cool look.  
Crocs shoes, Banana Republic jeans and sweater,
Limited scarf, Coach clutch, and Pandora bracelet.
And here's what I wore:

Anthropologie dress and belt, DKNY tights,
Aldo shoes, Stacey Kay Collection earrings,
vintage ring and bracelet.

A huge thank to you to all the lovely ladies who let me photograph them and feature them on my blog and to everyone to who came out to support Smile for Hope.  Stay tuned for more editions of "Who Wore What" on the Flower City Fashionista blog.  Can't wait to promote individual style and local businesses in Rochester!
