Keystone Wounded Warriors Benefit Runway Show

Since I began Two Back Flats, the notion that you get what you give has been in the forefront of my mind. Of course I would contribute to the truly wonderful cause that is the Wounded Warrior Project
AND have my first runway show in the process!!

Red, white and blue hats all lined up in the studio ready for a head count and fashion showwww!!
 If you know know what makes me happy ... and that is rolling hills and barns! Historic Shady Lane embraced the very heart of me the second we pulled on site!!

As I told my gorgeous assistant for the day, Karineh, if someone asked me about what I would do on a perfect day...I would say - hmmm walk up a rustic path on a beautiful 74 degree spring day and dress up a bunch of models for a runway show. Dream within a dream!!


 Designers tent! Good God I love a backstage buzz.

The Keystone Wounded Warriors raised over SIX THOUSAND dollars on Saturday night!! I could cry I am so excited to have had a little part in that exciting number!!! 


Thank you so much to Janelle at Historic Shady Lane for hosting such a beautiful day and for thinking of me :)), Nikke from Nikkay Fashions for organizing so perfectly such an honorable and important event! And CHEERS to all the awesome designers we met!!! 
Y'all made the day so much fun!!!

Custom Pinwheels

I love pinwheels. Sue me. I like putting them on my hats, I like putting them in my flower arrangements and on my lampshades and in your Easter baskets and your hair and your birthday presents, your kids and your dogs. But this headband! Oh this delicious red, white and blue headband takes my pinwheel shaped cake!! The retro carnival, state fair lover in me wants to wear this always.

So much so that I slapped a birdcage on it backstage in 3.5 seconds and it was my runway show finale piece for the Wounded Warriors Benefit!

All of the pinwheels are mismatched in vintage red, white and blue prints from stripes to houndstooth to eyelet! #classic

A few of my fave Two Back Flats pinwheel moments from the very first pink ones I used for Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum hats!! Carnival weddings! Fourth of July Parade top hats! They just work for every. little. thing. Fricken delightful!

Or Pinterest or Instagram ;) 

Good grief.
