That funky piece of ART …. what are You?

That funky piece of ART …. What are You?

I recently did a fashion show with Goodwill in San Antonio.  What a completely fun and fabulous day that I got to spend with a few other spectacular bloggers Pam Lutrell (Over50feeling40) and Agosto Cuellar (www.jiverefried.blogspot.com).   I will share more of both behind the scenes and the fashion next week.

Kens 5 TV SAN ANTONIO — Shoes, shirts and skirts were flouncing away at the Goodwill WORK IT! Fashion show Saturday. 

“We wanted to show folks there are great treasures to be found on every rack and every shelf here at Goodwill and that all it takes it a little creativity and a little imagination to put some fabulous finds together,” said Penny Benavidez with Goodwill. 
 
It was more than just fashion getting a second chance. 
 
“Every dollar, every donation is help us fund the many educational programs and services that assist people in finding jobs and building careers,” Benavidez said. 
 
Fashion bloggers Pippa Williams, Agosto Cuellar and Pam Lutrell helped coordinate the outfits.

“This is awesome, I want to teach people how to thrift,” Williams said. “So for pennies on the dollar, I’ll take a look from Pinterest and recreate it.”

Cuellar said Goodwill is an essential resource for fashion artists. 
 
“Goodwill has been a big part of what I’ve been doing my entire life as an artist: creating and remixing garments,” Cuellar said. “So I think that Goodwill is a supplier on a lot of artist that are on a budget. You can actual experiment. If it doesn’t go the way you want it to go, give it another shot because Goodwill is filled with stuff.”

The whole day was focused on making the show a success (and it was!).   At the end of the day I slipped off my heels and put on my flip flops, ready for a nap ….. wait …. this funky piece of ART caught my eye as I was walking out of Goodwill!   I bought it as a reminder as my first fashion show … I have to say that I am completely in love with the imperfection and lumpiness of this vase.   Beauty is always in the eye of the beholder.  My mom thought it was a bit rustic (if I remember correctly, she called it Ugly).  When she saw it on my kitchen island with my other “artsy” vases,  she had to admit its unique characteristics made it seem beautiful and fit in perfectly!

Regardless of your imperfections and lumps, there is a place for you in life.  You might not know where that path will lead you but follow the doors that open and bloom where you are planted!
