A Lovely Compliment;)

Hi Ladies,

We had our Recycle Runway Parade (Fundraiser) last night and it was fantastic and a huge success!

Our event is a smallish event and part of our Bendigo Fashion Festival. The night before was THE big fashion festival runway show (that I used to be on the committee for) and we had a number of ladies who attended that parade also attend ours. After our parade a couple of them came and spoke to me and others spoke to other members of our team and said our event was better than than the "official" runway show and that my styling of the parade was fantastic and superior to what they had seen the previous night! Wohoo!

I was incredibly flattered! But the reason I am sharing is because it's all down to what I heave learnt here from Angie and you all;). YLF has stretched me and opened my eyes to different and varied styles, helped me to understand different body types better and encouraged me to play with pattern mix and more unexpected pairings. So this is a long winded thank you to you Angie and to all my beautiful and stylish YLF friends. You have made me better at something I love to do!


Ps... We raised a lot of money for our community work too:)

    Awesome! Congrats. You're becoming quite the stylist - yourself of course but sharing that gift with others, too. Happy for your success.
