week I had the honor of attending a very special fashion show, thrown by Piece Unique and beloved local legend Jesse Taylor. Jesse is known for his generosity and dedication to the community, and this fabulous show was a true extension of his heart; the goal was to help raise money for the City Light Women’s & Children’s Home!
City Light provides emergency shelter for women and children, in downtown Boise. They house, feed, clothe, and counsel women who are seeking a safe place from dangerous circumstances, while providing care for their children as well. It’s an amazing program that has made HUGE contributions to the well-being of families in this city, and personally, I’ve had friends whose lives were literally saved by this shelter, so they are near & dear to my heart as well.
Sadly, as you can see below the blue lights on the stage were too much for my small camera, so I apologize for the overwhelming hue!
Jesse teamed up with local stylist Heather Schwabe of Style Therapy, Boise-based vintage/couture jewelry line Monica Macha, and Natalie Durham at downtown boutique Piece Unique, to showcase one of my FAVORITE clothing lines: Black Halo. I’ve blogged about Black Halo before, because they’re an incredible, well-made line that fits busty girls in ways I never imagined an off-the-rack dress could ever do! If you haven’t tried on one of their fashion pieces yet, you absolutely must get down to Piece Unique and check them out. Worth every penny, I promise!
Here’s a short video clip of the runway finale:
As a THANK YOU to all who helped make the fashion show a success & supporting City Light & the Boise Rescue Mission, Piece Unique is offering 25% off ALL BLACK HALO purchases made in their store before Nov. 15th, when you donate $25 to City Light Women’s & Children’s Shelter!

Wonderful job, everyone! See you at the next show.

More blurriness and blue light – ugh! – but this red dress was one of my favorites.
Green Black Halo dress on a model – that neckline on her is incredible!
