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.

All of the clothes in the runway show were later up for sale along with some other pieces.

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.
