Outfit Post: Harvest Home Benefit





 
Lace Back Dress: H&M (old)
Shoes: Zara
Earrings: Jewelmint "Jackie O"
Bag: Vintage

Earlier in the week, Billy and I got a wonderful invitation to attend a benefit in honor of The Harvest Home, an amazing non-profit organization here in LA. So last night, we got dressed up and headed over to the gorgeous Casa Del Mar hotel. I was incredibly touched by the testimonies given by the staff and alumnae. Learning about their stories and what The Harvest Home does really got me thinking..
 
Located in Venice, this large family home hosts pregnant women who need to seek refuge from dangerous or crisis situations they're facing. This group provides not only food and shelter for these moms-to-be/new moms, but they also provide programs that prepare these women to re-gain stability in their life.Whether it's financial, emotional, or spiritual guidance they're seeking, I was really moved to see just how much Harvest Home can make a difference in a woman's life. And during the dinner I was feeling extremely convicted and thought a lot about the goals I set back in January. I'm hoping I can get more involved...
 
On a side note, I finally had a good hair day... and I did it on my own! Not perfect... but at least it finally didn't look like a 2 year old did my hair... :)
 
An excuse to dress up and learn about a fabulous charity?! Double Score! Hope you guys have a wonderful Monday!!

  20. You look fantastic - head to toe!! Such a great charity. I used to volunteer for a few organizations in NY, but haven't been involved in any since I moved back to LA in January. I need to just sit down and figure out where I want to dedicate some time. Great reminder.
