Last Saturday night the Women in Leadership Foundation hosted their 3rd Annual SuperWomen and Friends Gala.  The event raises funds for WIL's mentorship program.  It was a glamorous night. But what I love is how passionate, fun and smart this group of women really are.  And they are never stuffy - but you probably figured that since I'm on the advisory board. 

Last year I did a blog about the shoes at the Gala. This year I wanted to expand that to include all accessories. And then I started taking pictures of the fantastic women I love that attend the event. So this post blends both of those things.

WIL Intern Bailey wearing some awesome mother-of-pearl earrings.

My good friend Marlis in her RW necklace.

Lili's Brazilian (of course) wrap belt

Betty's refreshing orange shoes.

My Michael Kor's 4" platform heels.

Emcee (and all around awesome lady) Rita Rogers working the runway in Holey's with her Jacqueline Conoir Dress.

Not only the ladies had awesome shoes. Rita's hubbie knows how to work a gala too.

Latin jazz vocalist Deborah Ledon won tickets to the gala from Miss604. She is such a passionate and fun lady. Her earrings illustrate this.

Fabulous shoes in the Jacqueline Conoir Fashion Show.

Myself and emcee Rita Rogers.
