Official Models of the 3rd Annual #IfTheCrownFits Fashion Show!

Posted on April 20 2015

We are less than 2 weeks away from the 3rd annual If The Crown Fits, Wear It! Fashion Show!  The event will be held at Hurricane Harry's on May 2 from 6-9pm with Phoebe's Home {Women of Domestic Violence} as the charity of choice to receive the proceeds.  Last year we raised $3,000 for the Boys & Girls Club & this year the goal is to raise $5,000-$10,000! Ways that YOU can help include coming to the event!  Tickets are $15 and can be purchased online (HERE) or at the door.  We will not sell out of tickets, however our VIP section did fill up as of this morning.  We are also gladly taking silent auction items (valued at $20 or more), so if you would like to donate or know somebody who would, feel free to email me directly at randa@southernjewlz.com. Each year I try to have completely well-rounded girls model in the show.  These young ladies that will walk the run way at the event are all so very beautiful, ambitious and love giving back to the community!  I want girls who truly encompass what it means to be a Southern Jewl -  A self motivated female who knows no limits when it comes to success. While she is dressed to gain attention because of her style, her strength and dignity allow her to make others feel their worth and beauty. With love, class, and a touch of sass, she has the ambition and determination to set the world on fire.
