Friday's Frock and Now That's A Dress

Friday's Frock is a splash of color, celebrating the fact that we have officially entered springtime.

I heard of an event on the radio station 100.5 that I can donate my gently used dresses.  

The event is described as follows:  

NOW 100.5 knows that most women won’t wear the same dress twice, so we’re holding the first annual “NOW That’s A Dress” exchange to benefit WEAVE (Women Escaping A Violent Environment) on Wednesday March 27, 2013 at 6:00pm.
Women from all over Sacramento will be encouraged to donate their new or gently used dresses at any Dimple Records location between February 27, 2013 and March 25, 2013.
All donated dresses will be dry cleaned at Prestige Cleaners and placed on display at the Hyatt Regency (1209 L Street, Sacramento, CA 95814) for the first annual “NOW That’s A Dress” event on March 27, 2013. All dresses will be sold for only $10 regardless of the designer.
Start digging through your closet for those formal dresses, cocktail dresses, sun dresses, prom dresses, bridesmaid dresses, or even wedding dresses, that you’re tired of and drop them off at any Dimple Records location!

  1. That is a neat idea. You are right, most women won't wear a dress twice....and what a great cause! Good luck to all.

  2. Excellent Cause - Even better Blog!!!

  3. I love your colour. The best way to welcome spring!

  4. I love your outfit and so impressed that some of it came from thrift shops,I can never find anything I like. I'm visiting from the BlogBlitz and A- Z Challenge.

  6. Tami, love the outfit!!!!! I must say as a visual stylist, this style of retro and the colors you often wear really do suit you! I have long told friends of mine to thift clothes. After all style to me is all about personal style, not what's on trend. Besides everything always comes around again. But the prints you have on really are quite popular currently. I wear both, some thifted and some new investment staples I call them. Nice post, and I put a vote in too!
