Witch Style! -Wonderful Witchy Women


 


Last week a fun caper took place midweek and I escaped my hood and took my broom to The Fairmont in San Jose for the annual Wonderful Wonderful Woman charity lunch. How often as a grown-up do you get to dress like a witch and have a fancy lunch all for a good cause? 




This annual bash is in it's 8th year and has raised a ton for local charities, especially those helping women and children. Last year's witches raised $200,000!

Cheryl Bailey, the founder of this event began this with a small lunch with her friends and it has grown to be a very huge and popular event in this short time.



Cheryl the lovely and kind founder.


I think Women love a reason to dress up and also help other women. One of the best things about this day is seeing the unique and gorgeous creations so many came in. Truly there was not enough time to snap all the fabulous women who were there.




 Sadly I pulled a blonde witch maneuver and left the card out of my nice camera. Arghh! These are all iPhone pics, but funny enough the light that morning gave them a soft look, so maybe not so terrible?

 I thought you may enjoy seeing all the lovely witches that attended!




 This cute lady preferred to wear her hat as a pin. Darling.






There was so many women who spent the better part of a year working on making this event fabulous. From the amazing auction items, decor, charity connections and a ton more.

A few of the beautiful ladies who worked so hard..










 Loved Jeanne's hat and red spider ring!







The pretty tables!


Some witches' accessories were pretty fabulous..  



Loved these lace shoes!


How cute are the dots?  Purple also really pops with black!





Some obviously put a lot of effort into their hats and coordinating outfit.




Loved mom Lisa's look and her cute daughter!



 Also, so many pretty variations on black! Love these dresses!



With my friend Shawna.  I wore my custom made blue bottle silk Della dress with some satin leopard wedges, black J Crew woven clutch from a few seasons ago.

  2. Looks like such fun. The last pic cracks me up!! We don't do proper Halloween parties because it sent huge here. Trick or treating only started several years ago and even then it's mostly all the foreigners who do it. Like the new format, I should do some updating too! Xx
