Blogger Day of Action for Haiti








So often it is through tragedy that we have to take a step back and think life is not all about how many material objects you can acquire. No time has it been more relevant than today in the wake of the January 11th earthquake (7.0 magnitude) that hit Haiti. Today I’m taking part in a “Blogger Day of Action” with many other bloggers to offer our readers an opportunity to help in the relief efforts in Haiti. This blog has been dedicated to helping fashionable women, of all walks of life and all budgets find fun fashion, and beauty items, now I’m asking you do the same with relief efforts in Haiti no matter what your budget, below are some reputable charity organizations along with a list of other Blogs participating in this day. HAPPY DONATING!

Fashionable Note: The dress pictures is one by award winning Hatian born designer Fabrice Simon (January 29, 1951- July 29, 1998 ) who was known for his elaborated beaded evening wear designs ( which were beaded and embroidered in Haiti ). Fabrice Simon known as "Fabrice" clothes were the taste of New York and beyond, and were sold at notable retailers like Henri Bendel's and worn by some of the most fashionable ladies of the time Kathleen Turner, Shirley MacLaine, Natalie Cole, Ivana Trump, and Whitney Houston in addition to celebrity models like Iman, Beverly Johnson, Christie Brinkley and Jerry Hall. He was also maybe one of the first to do a "diffusion"/budget friendly alternative to his "Fabrice" line which was called "Graffiti" and featured non-beaded pieces.
