Everyday Style & Happenings Edition: Locks of Love/Sky High for St. Jude Children's Hospital

A short 3.5hrs drive down I-10East took me to Lafayette over the weekend and as I mentioned in my other post (Swamp Tour), I had a wonderful time. Hmm Its funny how I've lived in Houston 19yrs and never visited this city. What took me there in the first place? well, what I did not say was that I was there to see my dear friend Alicia auction off her hair for the non-profit organization called Locks of Love at the Sky High for St. Jude Children's hospital. Its been 2yrs she's been growing her hair for this. Alicia first heard about this organization through a co-worker and right away she decided that she wanted to do her part to help. There were a total of 8 ladies and girls that raised over $45k that night. How wonderful is that?!
I have to say I was quite touched by the stories I heard, it made me realize the need for assistance with research and treatment for cancer and other life threatening diseases.

*Alicia enjoys being mostly behind the camera. Besides my husband, she's the person that takes most of my pictures over here on My Wallet My Style. But it didn't take a minute for her to warm up to it ;-)
I absolutely loved her Jacket!!! Found (here)

*But those boots! I really enjoyed seeing her style for the evening. The Corral boots can be found (Here)

 
 
*The entertainment for the night was Country singers Big & Rich



It was a fun packed night with food and entertainment.There was quite a lot of other things that were being auctioned off, from a safari trip to Africa to a cute little puppy!
