Latest and Greatest

I can't believe it has been 2 months since I blogged last- dreadful! Our Shoe Club is so active, so there is always lots to write about, I just need to actually sit down and write it! Things have been really exciting for Smiling Stiletto during these last few months. Our Step into Spring fashion show at Copley Place on April 19 was wonderful.  Copley Place was a big help with the event and they were great to work with. This was my first time having such an active role in organizing a fashion show. It is a lot of work, but everything worked out well. We have a ton of great photos on our FB photo album page. Here is a link to more photos: Spring Show Album
Here is one of my favorites- our Smiling Stiletto members are modeling Bebe:


The fashion show tickets sold out two weeks before the event, which was a record. We raised almost $2k for Project Smile which was good too. Meredith Goldstein from the Boston Globe was our special guest and she did a great job.

We're working on some more exciting fashion shows. On October 4 will be our Fall into Fashion Show at Copley Place. This event takes place during Boston Fashion Week. Emily Reimer, news anchor/reporter on Channel 5 News, Boston will be hosting the event. We already have our liquor sponsors on board as well. Christine, one of our long time shoe club members, is working on organizing the show as well. She did a fabulous job organizing our fall show last year.

On Wednesday, August 22, we will be working with the Northshore Mall in Peabody for our Summer Soiree and Fashion Show. I already have 25 Smiling Stiletto members on board as models for the event. The event will be similar to our Copley Place fashion shows. The ticket will only be $10 and all of the proceeds will go to Project Smile.

On Friday, I met with Burlington Mall and we're going to be working with them on a September event for Fashion's Night Out and a fashion show in October. It is really exciting to expand and do more fashion shows. They have been popular events and our members really like them. I love them too. It is great that we're also able to raise funds for Project Smile with them too.
 We have been doing a lot more events too. Last Thursday, we had our annual party at Pandora in Legacy Place, Dedham. The store provided complimentary wine for the guests, pizza from Wicked Pizza, chocolate from Chocolate Therapy and they donated 10% of the sales to Project Smile- which was about $250. Every donation makes a difference and I'm happy that they are so supportive. They've been great about donating auction items for PS as well. We had about 40 ladies in attendance. We always get a bunch of members who have attended before and a bunch of new ones. Pandora did a prize drawing for a bracelet and they gave away a beautiful bracelet with a shoe charm for the winner of the Best-in-Shoe pink carpet competition. I was really happy that one of my friends who is a really cool girl, Victoria, won that prize. The local Sephora store also donated a gift pack as a shoe prize. The owner of Chocolate Therapy had an awesome chocolate shoe made with little chocolates inside it as a prize- it was so cool. Here is a photo of the prizes.

There were so many awesome shoes at the Pandora party- here is a photo-
The lady who was wearing the shoe on the right won the Chocolate Therapy prize. Her shoes were even more awesome in person!

Well, that's the latest for tonight. I promise to blog more often because there is so much to share! Until next time friends...
