To Japan, With Love.

As you all know, Japan has been through a lot during these last few days. I've been thinking of a lot of ways to be able to help in anyway I could. After seeing this blogger holding a raffle to help raise money to donate to Japan, I knew I had to do something special as well.

Here, I am holding an auction to raise money for relief efforts to help Japan. The dress is an XSCAPE dress, by designer Joanna Chen. I bought it at a second-hand store for $75 USD in pristine condition, it has never been worn, and the tags are still on it. It is a women's US size 6, and I foolishly believed that I could one day wear it when I became older.(I am a women's size 0, and am very far from a size 6) This lovely dress has been in my closet, never worn. That is why I've picked this item to be auctioned off. (And the fact that it is too beautiful not to be worn!)


$50 USD

Emily has won!

  1. I am so sad to hear about the disaster in Japan, and I hope everything there can be better
    I would like to help, but i am to young to join the auction (well, what can a 17 years old girl like me can do?)
    I pray so much for Japan and Japanese people
    You are so kind with this auction, i hope the donation could help, i wish all the best <3

  26. I think it's a good idea but I have to say I hate the dress and I'm definitely not a size six but maybe I'll do something else to help Japan… pray, donate on myself…

  27. This is such a great dress and an even better idea!!

  28. i'll be visiting your blog again for sure!
    wonderful inspiration, darling.


  29. Such a great idea ! You are so kind and generous.Unfortunately , I'm not even close to size 6 myself.

  30. oooh, the dress and the thought behind it is beautiful...i would have bidded but i am a US size 20...also far away from a size 6. lol...i also thought dedicating your blog to your sister was super sweet of you.

  31. I love it!
    I made a new post on my blog.. I attend your comment!


  32. I think this dress is quite ugly because of its textile and its colour. I also don't really like the lace at the bottom, it looks like an ugly grandma dress. But still I think its a great idea you want to sell it and then donate the money. :)

  33. This dress is FAB! it looks stolen from a princess wardrobe :D

    Lovely sentiment. Every bit makes a big difference. We are all so lucky. xoxo

  37. That is amazing you did this. It really shows your character.

  38. Nice blog. I get plenty of visits to my blog, but even begging on facebook has gotten me no useful comments. I like the "curse often" recommendation, but I'm trying to be family-friendly myself. Maybe the comment cluster idea...
