Produced by the TWS the UnAgency and Chocolate Pink Productions, FashionGLAM is a shopping event where guests are invited to shop while enjoying music and other entertainment. Once they’re done shopping, they can enjoy the pamper bar with services like manicures, chair massages, foot massages and makeup application services. Friday Girl TV was honored to be a media sponsor and supporter of the latest installation of FashionGLAM. The event was fabulous and if you didn’t have an opportunity to attend, you should definitely keep an ear out for the next one!

I personally loved the way women dressed between the 1920′s-1970′s. Their style was classic, chic, tailored, and sexy without being trampish. ModCloth offers a wide variety of vintage inspired dresses that will transport you back into time.
ModCloth also offers you the opportunity to Be the Buyer. Where you, the customer chooses which items get produced and sold on the site. This interactive buying expeirence is paired with social media to get the items you want enough votes to be sold on the ModCloth site.
ModCloth is a great site to get all your vintage needs for yourself and your home. They offer an excellent flat rate of $7 for all ground shipping orders, as well as free returns and quick exchanges.
I would suggest consulting their size guide as they take measurements of the clothing lying flat rather than on the body.This can cut down on the need to return or exchange items.

All Grown Up is an organization that provides mentor and character education services for teen and pre-teen females. Founded in 1999 by Tangi Williams and Shari Ponder, two former Georgia Public School Guidance Counselors who were inspired to create AGU after hearing horror stories about young ladies and sex. They realized that these girls needed education and mentoring so they would have the knowledge to protect themselves.
AGU runs an after school character development program for girls in the 6-8th grade that is held at several middle schools in Clayton County, Georgia. They also have the Savvy Saturday Academy, which services young ladies in the 6-12th grade from Clayton and Henry County public schools and works on financial fortitude, etiquette, and character development.
Support this organization in it’s mission to to positively impact the community by breaking the cycles of poverty and increasing self esteem through health, social, educational, vocational, and financial literacy workshops that empower the development of teen and pre-teen females.
