i'm going to the unite sf fashion show!

I didn't think anything of it when I entered for a giveaway offered in one of my fave boho design blogs, SF Girl By Bay. The giveaway? 2 VIP tickets to the Unite SF Runway Show on April 24th at the Conservatory of Flowers in San Fran. (Wow!) A good 3 states away from me. (Double Wow!) So I didn't think my chances had a chance. I never ever win these giveaways, but, ya know, any excuse to visit my favorite city in the U.S. is worth a try! So I went for it.

Aaaaand ... I won. As of yesterday. Me! Giving me only a week to book my tickets! But it's all good. The likelihood of me attending if I did win were pretty high pending if plane tickets were reasonable enough. Then heck yeah, I'm so there. Luckily I found some and so I gave a fellow world traveler friend living in SF heads up about the extra ticket (Hi Kim!), confirmed my attendance with SF Girl By Bay (You're awesome, Victoria!) ... and now I pack! (Triple Wow!)

The first annual Unite SF fashion event is pretty sweet. It brings together the fashion and philanthropic communities of San Francisco - supporting overlooked local fashion designers and artisans, while raising awareness to The Lunchbox Fund, a non-profit agency providing meals to thousands of children in the poorest corners of the world. The giveaway I won (valued at $225) will be part of those proceeds going toward the fund. Good cause, good sartorial inspiration, good creative mojo - and I'll be apart of it all! (Quadruple Wow!) Can't wait!

besos ... jin.
