My wife and I just watched the episode and I want to add my praises to the mix. She is a beautiful young woman who has blossomed now. Good on ya, Emi!!!
How often do they do this benefit?
I really enjoyed the benefit and will attend next year
LOVE knowing about Memphis fashion events - thanks for keeping us posted and keep up the good work!
I certainly miss thrifting in the US. Love the furnitures. Good spot! I blog on the thrift stores in Adelaide, South Australia. Over here, we call them op shops. I love to share my blog with you. http://opshopdiva.wordpress.com
If you like thrift stuff, you might dig this local blog: http://secondhandunderground.wordpress.com…
A gentleman working in the former-DAV thrift store last time I was there told me that's where the remnants of Bojo's ended up...that would explain the primo furniture and vintage pieces!
One man's Expand-o-matic is another man's Sansabelt.
I loved Emi and I would personally love to meet her! She seemed like a sweet, spunky girl but stuck in the shadow of her mother and grandmother. I was so happy to see her come out of her shell and look her best! GOOD LUCK EMI! :) :) :) :)
I'm in Mass. I saw the show last night and loved Emi's transformation. She's gorgeous and now the outside matches the inside. She has a great personality.
Way to neg up the place M_Awesomeberg! Geez, they had fun and attended a fancy party at the Dixon. Everyone was happy. The End.
I'm happy to see some real women with real figures, finally!
Well, shoot. I guess I was exploited by the big, bad corporate monster. Granted, I don't feel like I was taken advantage of. I actually feel like I had a very good relationship with my employer. But, some dude on the internet told me I was exploited so I guess I was.
No offense, ladies, but being "asked" by your employers whether you wanted to volunteer your time outside of work for something work-related, doesn't qualify as voluntary. Who benefited from your services at this show, if not your employer? It's not like you participated in this show because you were auditioning for Vogue. Whether you realize it or not, your employer took advantage of you, and if you weren't paid for your time, you damn well should have been.
That's Far East Memphis!
I was one of the volunteer models. We were asked if we wanted to participate. No pressure whatsoever. It was fun to be able to attend an event outside of work with my wonderful co-workers.
I participated in a work-related fashion show many years ago. My experience was delightful. I was asked if I wanted to participate. There was no pressure. I gladly accepted and had a terrific time.
Hannah: I'm wondering whether these employees were paid for their services as models, or were the victims of what you wrote about recently in your "Purloined Paychecks" piece.
This is precisely the kind of extracurricular work an employer might expect an employee to do, but not pay them for.
Could you please inquire and let us know?
Ah lahk to do all muh winder-shoppin' at thuh WAL-MART!
Sorry, Mark, but East Memphis and style are just as oxymoronic as Kroger and style.
