Pictured: Bex Anderson, owner of The Fitting Room
Thank you so much to Bex Anderson, owner of The Fitting Room in downtown Grayslake, an upscale lingerie and bra fitting boutique, for co-hosting an amazing benefit for Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT. Bex brought together a wonderul group of ladies to model some of the lines that The Fitting Room carries. The event was sold out, with about 200 people in attendance! We had wonderful vendors represented as well, Kelly and Kate from The Bloom Room, Amy and Erin from Paris Hair Design, the gals from Uniquely Sweet, Dave and Danielle Woll and Andres Acevedo from Memory Makers DJ service and photobooth. What a wonderful time! We could not have pulled it off without the help of our significant others, Steve (Harper's) and Sean (Bex's), Tess Anderson (Bex's mom) and many other wonderful friends and family who pitched in. We had a super fun Burlesque Revue with Peeka Boo Revue, starring Sarabella Scandal and Cozzie and Pea (aka Sara Pierce, Kevin and Meghan Cosgrove) followed by the fashion show. Way to go everyone! Great event! We even had local and big celebrities attend. A couple DJ's from 102.3 XLC were in attendance, and then I was star struck twice....Completely flipped out when Steve pointed out to me that Rob Harvey from the phenomenal band Bella Cain was in the house http://bellacain.com/fr_home.cfm and then completely lost it when I glanced across the runway and saw celebrity stylisit and makeup artist, Constantine James there! I still cannot believe that with his crazy rockstar schedule that he came to the show! Amazing! Thank you to all the people in attendance! We raised close to $1,800.00 for Sandy Hook! Job well done show attendees! Thank you to all the vendors that also donated raffle prizes! Much love to ALL involved! Enjoy viewing the gallery!!
