Close to three years ago, I decided that I needed a change of scenery. I had never lived outside of Cleveland and had never really lived on my own not counting college. Also, I was looking for a new job that would be challenging and fulfilling and that would put me on a career path I would be happy with. I job searched in many different cities, but I inevitably chose Pittsburgh, where I found a job I can sincerely say I love. That job has lead me down the road of pursuing my MBA, and I have to say I could not be happier with everything so far.
As far as cities go, Pittsburgh rates pretty high on my list. I know it sounds like treason coming from a Clevelander, but Pittsburgh has many of the same features I love about Cleveland. That being said, there are still little things that I miss terribly about Cleveland. The crowds for the feast at Little Italy, wandering the art museum for hours, perusing the west side market and looking at the lights on East 4th street — to name a few. That is why this year, for the Goodwill Good Style Fashion Show, I am letting the city I love inspire my runway show. Using my $125 gift card to Goodwill, I will be interpreting spring trends inspired by the many places I love in Cleveland.
If you are interested in attending the show, here is all of the info. It’s going to be a great show this year! I hope to see you there!
The show takes place on Thursday, May 8 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Windows on the River. I am giving away 2 pairs of tickets to 1 reader.
