Yandy Smith - First Annual Harlem Cares Toy Drive

After attending the Top Notch Trend Pop Up Shop on Saturday I had the pleasure of going to the First Annual Harlem Cares Toy Drive the next day, Sunday December 22nd 2013. The shindig was hosted by Yandy Smith of Love and Hip Hop NY and took place at 2647 Harlem Bar and Lounge. Admission was free for donating a toy. It was a great way to celebrate the holidays, have
fun, give back to the community and help brighten Christmas for a lot of children. Yandy was there looking fully fabulous and graciously mingled. It was my first time seeing her in person and she was super nice.

Mo' pics!

This was just a tiny portion of the gifts. There must have been over 1000
or even more. People really showed up and supported.
These Ladies of Storm PR Agency were hauling the gifts out.
Bless their hearts!
Yandy and I.

I wish I had a better spot to take this outfit pic but I
wasn't going to leave without taking one.

What I wore: White Jcpenney blazer, Brocade Moruka Designs Clutch, Blue polyester shirt from Mandee, Jeans, and Pink/brown 4 inch Marshalls platform pumps.

  1. Although I don't really 'agree' with reality shows (too much negativity), it's always nice to see someone with the means giving back to the community!! You're so lucky to have attended ;D
