The Women's Leadership Fund (WLF), a branch of Orange County United Way, sponsored the event to help raise money to promote independence, growth and self-determination for women and girls.
Luckily I didn't get lost and I had a vague idea of where I was going. I was greeted by Kat and Susan of the WLF at the gate of the former Laura Ashley Estate (yes, THAT Laura Ashley). I parked on the designated grassy area which was not conducive to my outfit or heels, but I digress.
The interior of the Rose Cottage was beautifully accessorized with discounted designer clothing, a win win for us all. Many other eager shoppers already had their hands full with Harrison Morgan's (and other designer friends) threads. Good thing I arrived early.
I perused the racks with the notion of buying a simple shrug or possibly some jewelry, I did give myself a $40 spending limit. I knew I was in over my head when my arms were full of dresses, sweaters, shirts, shrugs and coats. They had coats! With an armful of clothing Kat brought me over to meet
Harrison who was born in
Harrison Morgan and I
My finishing touch? $180 in damages. But it was extremely worth it.
