This past Monday night was the 19th annual FFANY Shoes on Sale hosted by QVC in New York City. I donate and look forward to this event each year, but unfortunately was unable to attend this week. I asked my son, Michael and his fiancé Alli if they would like to go in my place and they thrillingly accepted the invitation.
This year shoe designers donated over 120,000 pairs of shoes for QVC to sell with all proceeds going to Breast Cancer research. At the event, they have shoes to purchase before the dinner and award ceremony. Here is a pic of a beautiful velvet platform shoe Alli tried on. Velvet is such a huge fashion trend... Everyone must have something velvet this year!
Nicole Richie, the 2012 spokesperson (wearing a stunning orange lace dress) gave an introductory speech along with additional celebrity appearances by Kristin Cavallari and fashion designer, Tory Burch.
It's always such an uplifting experience when people come together for a cause near and dear to their heart. Although I was unable to attend this year, it makes me so happy to be involved with this great program working hard to find a cure.
I hope you can join me Thursday, October 31st at 6pm ET and November 1st at 1am, 9am, and 1pm ET.
