Hey Family, Happy Friday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We made it through. lol
So last evening I got a call form my girl Meosha saying "Hey what time do you get off work? " Then "come on a go with me to a evening event." Now I work in the Chi Downtown and my IT job of boots and jeans does not an evening out make. My home location on a great day is still an 1 hour drive with no traffic on the expressway. It just so happened there was a major accident on the express way. I was on the phone using bluethooth tech. Anyway point being I was not ready for an evening out in the Chi.
My brain must have been on autopilot because Meosha is owner of the Charity One Savvy Veteran & Combat to Chic which carries all of the necessaryitems for an evening out. Plus my friend and The Fashioner Tem is on Sight (Fashion Tailor Supreme) So Over to Combat to Chic I went. To Spend my money on a fab gown and jewellery for an unexpected evening out. Only one problem I was not driving anywhere. Unfortunately there was a major accident 5 firetrucks and more police on the express. I don't know the outcome but I pray for those people.
After navigating and warning my people to stay off the drive I finally made it to Combat to Chic. Now let me set the atmosphere of C2C it is the perfect Clothing for Thrift Boutique for Work,Weekend and Evening wear. Shoe sizes range from 5-13w and clothing from sizes 0-30. Yep, I do volunteer there and know that the selection process is through and tough. You would be surprised at what people will donate most times in a happy pleasant way. Some rare occasions I think "What in the heck was someone thinking" High-end boutique means high-end lol at thrifty prices. You all know I got my 4pr of boots from there last week for $5 each.
So I arrive at C2C and think what am I gonna wear. The Fashioner Tem was there and my 4th favorite vet Jared. Ya'll he is movie star fine and he was former Army and Tem is not bad himeself. How could you not love that. Now I know what your thinking why is Jared hanging out at C2C? I told you that C2C is an unexpected kind of place. You get next level conversation, sister & brother talk. I find Meosha had stepped out and Tem and Jared were there talking sports and clothing. WHAT, WHAT,WHAT WHERE THEY DO THAT AT? At C2C that is where.
I said Tem the Fashioner I need something quick. I said hey to Jared and Tem, Tem says he has 3 dress I can try. What, What, OMG I was like alright. Jared is there having 5 suits tailored and Tem is working on a waistcoat for a young man and his prom in addition to finishing up a stunning look for a clients 50th birthday. Meosha comes back and says don't try that one gown on its a dream killer. lol I said ok and Tem says here try this one. I found my dream dress again. Yes Tem can create both male and female exquisiteness from thin air and a sewing machine.
Now what to do what to do about jewellery shoes and the dressing goodies. Well C2C has everything. Earrings for .50 cent, necklaces for $1, shoe between $5-$10 I was set with a couple of try ons and suggestions. I found my look. Into the dressing room and out with a couple of alterations to my gown that I wound up buying the whole look. I styled myself and then we had more conversations and photo shoots. I love my tribe. They don't mind pictures and they bring the party and life to any situation even to a thrift shop that beyond a thrift shop.
So we were off and going to our event for the evening. You all this venue was amazing. It was celebration and fundraiser for the Rivendell theater. We slayed Meosha looked like she stepped out of a fairy-tale book and well I slayed. lol We were treated to a wonderful evening of celebrations, singing, light food and adult beverages. I had the most amazing experience. Such a Grand Time.
Last pictures are of cute Jared & Hot Tem. Lol I forgot to mention that I had on some beautiful size 11w shoes but they hurt my feet on the walk to the car. I was like oh no and changed into my leather pair of flatforms.
Well, I hope your still with me If you are thank you for reading.
