New Buys: #FindLauren

This past Saturday I went to Via Michelle in Mount Kisco, NY, a little boutique that sells jewelry, perfume, and makeup. But I wasn't there just to buy something, I was there to support the parents of Lauren Spierer, so that they could continue searching for their daughter. If you haven't seen her face on the news or heard what happened, Lauren Spierer, 20, disappeared on June 3, 2011. {Read more about her here.}

Although I didn't know her personally, she went to my high school, she was only a few years younger than me, she was in my brother's grade, and I know someone who was close friends with her. Writing about her in the past tense is hard to do because no one knows what happened to her, but that's exactly why I went to that store. To help find out what happened to Lauren.

The owner of the store, Michelle Danielle, gave 25% of every sale to help fund the search. I knew I couldn't leave until I had bought something.

This is the poster that is taped to store windows where I live, and I hope they don't take them down until she is found.

There were so many beautiful pieces at the store, but in the end I chose a simple but sparkly pair of earrings and a small hair clip with pinkish-purple stones.
