MANDEE / Vanilla Star "Back-to-School" Block Party
Last night I stopped by the MANDEE 14th Street store in NYC to celebrate the launch of the Vanilla Star collection designed by the students of New York's High School of Fashion Industries. This ongoing project supports young design students. 10% of the proceeds from MANDEE and Vanilla Star garment sales will go back to New York's High School of Fashion Industries to acquire and fund more projects for the students.
Guests voted for the best designs and enter contests for the chance to win Mandee gift cards, Katy Perry concert tickets and a back-to-school HP laptop, and also enjoyed shopping discounts during the event.

I haven't been to a MANDEES store since my early teen years and automatically found myself gravitating towards the shoe department. I love these lace pumps! Unfortunately they didn't have my size in any of the shoes I wanted!
These Steve Madden color block slingback pumps are perfect for fall!
