Sweet Home Dream Pie Social, ATX Fashion Week 2010, & SXSW2010!

This Saturday is the 2nd Sweet Home Dream Pie Social. Part of the grassroots movement 'ServeADream', the event strives to achieve equality by bringing back the tradition of pie socials.

The event celebrates not only the community but also raises money to support other community projects, as all donations will be donated to the Sweet Home Restoration Fund.

The Sweet Home Dream Pie Social starts at 2PM and lasts until 4 at the Sweet Home Missionary Baptist Church, located at 1725 West 11th Street. There will be a Dream Pie Contest, along with a Silent Pie Auction. If you are interested in finding out more information, along with pie donations, go to ServeADream.org.

Austin bloggers, let me know if you're planning on going! If I have my car by then (transmission is currently being replaced), I'll definitely be there.

Fashaustinistas (I dare you to say it ten times fast), Launch 787 has announced this year's Austin Fashion Week dates.

Moved to August, the week-long fashionable extravaganza will be kicked off on the 14th (making Austin Fashion Week a true Leo), with an "over-the-top" fashion show.

From the 15th-20th, there will be over 150 events, including runway shows, trunk shows and then to what I can finally attend as I will be 21--cocktail parties!

On the final day, August 21st, there will be the Austin Fashion Awards, celebrating the city's most unique and creative designers.

Of course, after the Fashion Awards there will be an after-party.

All the locations for the events have yet to be determined, but you can go to FashionWeekAustin.com to sign up for their e-mail list so you don't miss out on any of the events! At their website you can also find information about working at the events as a model, hair-stylist, makeup artist, or photographer. They are also accepting retailers, salons, and Texas-based designers to showcase. Follow them on Twitter @ATXFashionWeek .

I am very excited for Austin Fashion Week, and hopefully the promoters have worked all the kinks out from the issues that seemed to make last year's events less than lively.

P.S. 1/12: Found out my school is going to let me skip class if I volunteer at South By Southwest! Hopefully all the cards will fall into place for this!
