Janice tagged this dramatic

Fabulous shoes! Enjoy your night!


Okay, you look smashing and I'm sure "the little black dress" is in there somewhere.

karitek tagged this ripoff

Your party was a bust. Everyone I talked to there was upset that the advertised open bar was not true. And, the music / DJs were a disappointment - were they really from DFA? No wonder most people left in under an hour.

concerned citizen tagged this Try Harder

this project is a SCAM!!!! do not donate your money unless you want it to be wasted!!!!

hi tagged this epic fail

Notice how you donations go to the "uniform project" instead of the charity directly? wonder why that is??? DO NOT DONATE MONEY HERE

amazinggrease tagged this Fashion Icon

Sheena does a coco!!! Coco Chanel would be proud! you look so elengant and grown up!!! you're a natural, the clothes are beautiful and your amazing spirit inhabits all of it and makes it work!!!

new yorker tagged this GREAT PARTY!

Just to say I was there from ten and I had loads of drinks on the open bar which only ended at midnight. I've been to many 'open bar' parties here so know that open bars rarely last all night, AND it was for charity so stop hating becuase you didn't get your free booze all night long.

sara tagged this commendable

@hi and @concerned citizen (same person?) do you really think this project is trying scam money? give me a break. not only would that be illegal, (and sorry, but i don't think this looks like an illegal operation) and two, there's a simple way to find out if there's any funny business going on. just call the charity. i'm sure you'll find that everything is completely transparent. why do people always try to hate on people when they're doing something good.


@ karitek @Hi @concerned citizen same person? my heart bleeds that you didn't get shitfaced at a fundraiser for disadvantaged kids, yes indeed...

Anonymous tagged this Sheer Style

Wow!the look is so elegant and the details from the back just amazing, I love the shoes!!!


Love the shoes & the back view! I'm sorry to read that some people have such a negative outlook that if they didn't get some free drinks, they think it's all a scam & the party was a bust. Open your minds, people! I'm sure Sheena & other organizers did their best with the resources. As a former foundation rep, it's hard to put on a Soiree & make sure the majority of the $$ goes to the charity! I'm sure it was great for what they had!


Isn't that the cape from Raffaele's "The Mother's Instinct" collection? I saw it on the website & London Fashion Week photos.... I like how you left it open - other photos show it cinched at the top near the chest.

Rayanne tagged this Maravilhosa

Perfect! Perfeito! You are with a very interesting project, and I´m interest of write about your project in my blog. My blog isn´t famous but I´m in love about this. Sorry about my english. (My country is [Brazil])

Ann Marie tagged this FAB, as always!

Sheena, Eliza, Mary, Sean....It was so nice to meet you and you looked great and it was a great soiree! I am glad it was not an open bar (that could have been a mess!) and it was FAB! Congrats and keep up the great work for such a worthy cause!

Beth tagged this Batty

Love that belt! Another awesome outfit :) Have fun tonight and keep up the good work! xx


I'm a huge fan of black clothing, however that "cloak" should be returned to count dracula.

Tina Sequeira tagged this Batty

You luk like the Bat-Woman herself....:)

Deedle tagged this Courageous

Sheena & "staff", hope you will not be discouraged by a couple of ill-willed folks. When you do something that glorifies God, the enemy just works harder to stop it.
