I love fashion, and to tell you the truth, I love philanthropy a million times more than fashion, quite possibly a billion times more....yeah, that sounds about right. 

I would love to be that girl who could say that she wiggled into a Boutique in a Fendi black pencil skirt,  five inch Bottega Veneta heels, carrying a newly purchased Chanel quilted lambskin bag, all purchased at full price, but I'm just not her. I don't have that kind of money.
Even if I had that kind of money, I would not be her. 
Don't get me wrong, I love all those things & do not shun those who have this life & can afford it, but she's not me.  If I were a billionaire, still wouldn't be me!

I have come to realize that I am the girl who digs through thrift stores that give back to the community, I am  the girl who has been lucky to score Dior, Gucci,  Celine & Jil Sander bags (all authentic!) just to name a few, because someone who could afford those things gave too! It doesn't matter how its paid forward, it is the heart & thoughtfulness that makes it good, right?!

The plus side is how great it feels to have saved money, so that you can purchase tickets to your favorite charity fashion gala & wear or carry that gorgeous, fabulous something!

You see, the giving never ends!

Have a delish of a day! :)
