Last weekend I had the opportunity to participate in the 2nd Annual Fair Trade Fashion Show Fundraiser hosted by Bead and Reel for the Peace Exchange. The event was a huge success. Shop the runway looks and the Fan Fair Dress Blue by visiting their webpage! 

The highlights of the trip for me was the stunning fashion and the incredible people I had the opportunity to meet. I left L. A. that weekend having built many new long lasting relationships and with a piece of advice that will forever stick with me. Sica Schmitz, founder of Bead and Reel, mentioned that clothing should always be about comfort and never about compromising your personal values. They should be about representing who you are inside and out. Thanks for constantly offering that in your clothing Bead and Reel! I feel that my values are always being represented every time I wear their clothes. I absolutely love this trust worthy brand! Finding what makes you comfortable and feel beautiful both inside and out is so important! Bead and Reel recognizes and executes this so well in all they do. I feel like there is something for everyone in their clothing line. I love all that they have to offer and this beautiful peace of advice. Hope these wise words are as insightful for you as they were for me, love you all!
