Career Wardrobe Cocktail Reception & Auction featuring a limited Lilly Pulitzer pink bike

Every year Career Wardrobe hosts a Cocktail Reception & Auction. I was fortunate enough to attend this inspiring event. I got the chance to learn so much more about the growth of the organization and I was reminded of why I actively blog for this non-profit. They have helped 3,000 individuals and on they’re on the track to improving the lives of 6,000 people with their expansion. I’m so impressed with what they’ve accomplished so far and I’m excited to be a part of their mission to empower women and now men.

The event was held at the lovely Crystal Tea Room right above Macy’s in Center City on June 9th from 5:30-8:30pm. There were tables set up in the lobby area to sell items and to enter into a raffle from the Wardrobe Boutique.


  The silent auction items were displayed along the room organized by categories.

The spread was amazing and that wasn’t even half of the food.

So happy to attend the event with fellow blogger, Pri. We had to take a photo with the Lilly Pulitzer bike! Check out her blog at PaintTheTownChic.

Let the show begin…

The fashion show featured real clients and some local celebrities such as Rick Williams, Sue Serio, and Monique Braxton.


After the fashion show, the live auction began. The first one started with having lunch with the Mayor of Philadelphia, Jim Kenney.

There were so many great live auction items and of course it ended with the limited Lilly Pulitzer pink bike.

At the end of the night, Career Wardrobe raised thousands of dollars and it was fun to be a part of this event. They did a great job!



Career Wardrobe

Attention all frugal fashionistas:

Do you want to find great deals on high end brands and also empower women at the same time? Keep reading…

So you may or may not know this about me but I’m a philantropist at heart. I give my undergrad experience all of the credit. It took me a while to find the right organization to be passionate about and I stumbled on this organization via Instagram! 

So Wardrobe Boutique is an upscale resale store where proceeds will benefit Career Wardrobe. This non-profit organization provides free professional clothing and career search support. They empower women by giving them the confidence to find a job through something as simple as an interview outfit. 

So I encourage all of you fashionistas to help this generous organization by donating your clothes, your time, or by shopping at their boutique or on their website. The employees are friendly and welcoming. They have several volunteer opportunities such as retail or dressing assistant, resume reviewer, event volunteer, and more. I look forward to my next shift.

Here is my preppy outfit pick from the boutique. (Vintage Lilly Pulitzer and Jack Rogers) 

They have dresses, tops, shoes, handbags, skirts, jewlery, and more! 

Some racks are dedicated to specific brands such as J.crew, Ann Taylor, Loft, and Banana Republic. 

This section is dedicated to the clients for finding the right clothes for an interview.
