A Modest Proposal: Give-Aways, Model Search, Contests, and a Fashion Show!

My friend Michele Ashman Bell, author of A Modest Proposal, sent me the following announcement:

In conjunction with the release of A Modest Proposal, Allyse's Bridal, in Orem and American Fork, is doing a dress giveaway. The entry form is in the back of the book, A Modest Proposal (or you can email Danyelle for the PDF form). You just need to fill it out and send it in and you will be eligible for a free $500.00 dress.

Also, there will be a modesty fashion show at Southtowne Mall on June 28th at 7:00 pm. Macys Department Store, Regis Hair Salon, Shape Candy and Covenant Communications are sponsoring this event.

Along with the fashion show, we are having a "Real Woman" model search to get models for the contest. Anyone, 13 and older, who wants to enter can go to my web-site, www.micheleashmanbell.com and send to the email provided there the following: name, age, height, address and phone number, current head shot, and a 200 word essay on "How do the clothes I wear reflect my inner beauty?" The deadline for this is June 14th. Winners will model in the fashion show.

There is also a design contest being held for the fashion show. Girls, 13 and older, can submit their designs for any type of outfit i.e., casual, formal, dress, pant, etc... No swimwear please. The winning outfit will be made by Cherella USA and debuted at the fashion show. Sketches need to be mailed and received by June 14th. They can be sent to: Covenant Communications Inc., P.O. Box 416, American Fork, UT 84003.

Ooh la la, ladies! There's lots of fabulous stuff in this promotion. Enjoy!

Dear Danyelle-

In keeping with your values of modesty I wanted to let you know about a new company that may be of interest to you and your readers. Christa Taylor is a 20 year old Christian designer dedicated to producing high quality chic and trendy clothing that allows women to be fashionable without being suggestive. She resounding rejects the notion that modesty must be frumpy and has set out to disprove that notion through her clothing line. Christa operates her business as a family enterprise involving two brothers, her father and two sisters. She is also committed to donating at least 5% of her sales to the poor and towards advancing social justice around the world. You can find her site at http://www.christa-taylor.com. We would love for you to check us out and possibly list us a resource on your site. Thanks for your time and consideration.

Stephen Taylor

I checked out Christa's website. Thank you for the info. I enjoyed her designs and plan to try out some of her clothes before reviewing them for my blog. I'm sure you'll hear from me again for an interview. Thanks again!
