This week was the annual Wonderful Witchy Women With a Cause Charity Luncheon and Fundraiser at the San Jose Fairmont. It was the 9th year of this fun lunch and I just had to snap some of the hats and outfits on view. It's very much a fashion show and each year the witches (um, attendees), go over the top with some gorgeous and original creations. I especially love that it attracts women from all over the Bay Area and of all ages! It's a diverse group.
The founder and creator of Wonderful Witchy Women and the Bella Vista League is Cheryl Bailey. She started with friends using a small Halloween lunch as a way to raise funds for those in need in her own community. Over the years it has grown with almost 500 attendees this year! It's all due to Cheryl's dedication along with a super group of women who work tirelessly for months to make it happen.
Lots of snapping pics at arrival!
Many cute variations on the witch theme...Leopard and Chanel!
Beautiful dresses, coats and shoes too.
It's all in the details!
Black lace is big this year and was a perfect accompaniment to a witch hat!
Fascinators were almost as popular as the hats and less cumbersome.
