The event starts with a Gala where top donors (monetarily and product) are honored. I attended the Gala dinner this past Thursday, where fabulous trips were auctioned and the booze flowed freely to enhance the bidding!
Marc by Marc Jacobs coat, Louis Vuitton bag, BCBG booties and Target tights.
Vivienne Westwood dress and Anthropologie necklace.
There’s usually a celebrity style honoree, this year it is Kelly Osborne.
Last year I wasn’t actively taking photos and sharing them on my site. Now I can really give you an inside peak at the events surrounding this great charity that supports Project Angel Food.
Inside the Divine Design Shop designer donations ranged from Ralph Lauren, Marc by Marc Jacobs, SmashBox Cosmetics and more! Almost every brand you love graciously donated goods to be sold in the name of charity.
Again, Barbie was one of the premier donors with the whole front area dedicated Barbie.
They even had models dressed as Barbie & Ken inside a life size box that you can be photographed with for a small donation. I came back on the second night just to have my photo taken!

In case you don’t know how it works:
Divine Design is a huge charity shopping event held annually in LA. In support of Project Angel Food which delivers free meals to people with HIV/AIDs, Cancer and other life threatening illnesses, 100% of all the proceeds go to the charity, or in other words, every $5.00 spent provides 1 meal.
Items are originally sold at 50% off retail the first 2 days then drop by 10% each preceding day until items fly off the shelves at 90% off on the final day!! I plan on returning on Sunday for 80% off… I will let you know what I find! I highly recommend that if you are in the L.A. area this weekend that you attend this charity shopping event. The event ends 12/6/10 aka 90% off day!
Do Good & Look Good!
