Red Carpet Event

Winning Fashion: Best Dressed on the Red Carpet!

This is IT for the Glam factor. The dress has nice interest on the bodice but when you turn around the detailing down the back really grabs your eye.
–Priscilla Esser, fashionista judge

The red dress/black jacket is my fave. I love the tuxedo-detailing on the black jacket, and you can’t go wrong with a red dress. Plus, those heels are so damn cute!
–Leila Regan-Porter, fashionista judge

The 60’s mod silhouette is so on trend right now. That shape coupled with animal print AND a classic mod houndstooth makes it current and fun. You can style this dress so many different ways. It would be so cute with a platform stacked heel or even a delicate flat sandal.
–Priscilla Esser, fashionista judge

My fashion philosopy is to “Ball on a budget”. Thrift “timeless” pieces like the little black dress, white pants, and great jeans to pair with vintage and unique pieces, like this great vintage purse! Thrifting is the new cool and I want to encourage all middle Georgia fashionistas to get on board! 
-Charise Stephens, fashionista judge

My fashion philosophy is to Wear what makes you happy – dress for yourself and no one else! Don’t doubt yourself if it’s something you love – wear it like you own it. 
–Leila Regan-Porter, fashionista judge

*At Wear, we believe you can Look Good, Do Good, and now, Move Good! Thrift with a Twist: The twist is that we believe profits should benefit those in the community who need them. Wear profits go to serve the homeless.

Wear Event: #ThisMeansBusiness

On October 16, 2015, we hosted an event for the GA College, Middle GA State College, and Wesleyan College career students. Each student had a special discount for their purchase, and shopped for work appropriate Wear: clothes that mean business!

Wear means business too: as a social enterprise, our profits benefit Daybreak, Depaul USA’s day resource center for homeless men and women in Macon, GA. When you shop at Wear, for professional or casual wear, you are making a difference in your community. Look good, do good, shop Wear!
