WDSAD Style Show


Last weekend, I was honored to style some amazing individuals for the WDSAD Style Show at Arc’s Value Village. WDSAD (World Down Syndrome Awareness Day) is a time to acknowledge the people in our community with Down Syndrome, as well as those with varying exceptionalities. Arc has been a great influence in my community work. I grew up 4 minutes away from the Richfield store, where my family consistantly donates, to this day. I even worked at the location briefly before leaving for college.


Being part of a show like this meant so much to me. I have a sibling on the spectrum of autism, and organization and events like this brings beautiful people like her in the spotlight for a worthy cause. I made new friends in a community I hold dear to my heart.

Lucky for us stylists, we got the privilege to walk the runway as well. Here’s my runway walk. I was SO nervous, as if I’ve never done this before!


Of course the items I pulled (ALL from Arc) scream Nessa. But only one of them came home with me, and that was this gorgeous camel hair coat.

It’s smooth and warm like wool, but nowhere near as itchy. And you know I’m a sucker for coats and jackets-I couldn’t let something as cool as a camel hair coat pass me by!
