A Mile in Her Shoes: A Political Fashion Show by Gabriela Network

ok, i am so late in posting and updating.

it's what happens when life takes you by the back of the neck and says "LIVE!"

and being that i am up and awake, i will take the opportunity to actually update my blog.

In February 2009, I took part in Gabriela Network's annual fashion show. This year's theme is called "A Mile in Her Shoes", a tribute to women defenders. I was asked to submit a pair for showcase, and to donate a pair for auction.

I selected Assata Shakur; and what better way to celebrate her but with 5-inch heel boots.

I donated Vans slip-ons for the auction:

The day was amazing. More than 300 people attended our event at the Eagle Rock Plaza.
