I Know You See Me On The Video

Back in April I worked on a video for the Spring Fling  Contest with Goodwill of Greater New York and Northern New Jersey. The contest encouraged a social responsibilty  such as donating clothes to thrift stores rather than throwing in the garbage, shopping at thrift stores as opposed to mega retailers and also getting rid of excess for a good cause. As a consummate thrifter, purger and shopper I donated my styling expertise to one of the winners, Erin who is a dead ringer for Anne Hathaway. Erin  is stepping into a new phase in her life, and had given away tons of party dresses (gasp!) and was looking for a sleek  more professional look. Erin, has a great eye and knew exactly what worked best for body as well as her wardrobe. We worked the racks at the West 79th Street location and found a fabulous Michael Kors jacket that screamed I AM SHUTTING IT DOWN! The Spring Fling Contest was a fun collaboration between myself, Erin and Goodwill and was one of the most fun projects I've worked on in some time.  Check out the video above and run  with your donation, do not walk to the Goodwill on the Upper West Side and then do a little shopping for yourself,  that location  has some pretty amazing inventory with  high fashion stock at thrift store prices.
