Kappa Kappa Gamma's LF Trunk Show was held this Wednesday, April 28.
If you like pretty clothes, high heels, DJ music, philanthropy, and cupcakes, you would have loved Kappa Kappa Gamma’s LF Trunk Show this Wednesday, April 28. The ladies of Kappa Kappa Gamma (KKG) hosted a trunk show of LF’s Spring 2010 line to benefit Kappa’s philanthropy, Reading is Fundamental. Although Brianna Barba, who works at the LF shop in San Francisco, was a Tri Delt at USC, she decided to host the Trunk Show at KKG because she has met many KKG girls at the LF shop. Brianna decided it would be fun to bring LF clothes to Berkeley with the help of her KKG shoppers. The event was a thrill for the eyes, ears, and mouth.
The downstairs of KKG was filled with clothes, shoes, and accessories. There was a mix of many styles, from floral bohemian to preppy lace to rave neon, all of which complimented each other nicely. Although the styles were all on the pricey side, I appreciated the fashion just the same. I noticed that many of the clothes had a common element of zippers, which seems to be very in; zippers appeared on the front of dresses, the back of skirts, and even on the side of shirts. Other reoccurring elements were lace and floral, which could be found in various forms. I fell in love with the headbands, which were covered in flowers and beads. The selection of heels, boots, and sandals really made me wish I had a job. If you are planning a day at the beach or a night out, LF is the one stop shop for you.
Piles and piles of floral shirts and jeans lined the tables at KKG.
More ripped denim and neon tees to choose from.
The show also featured a vast array of clutches, headbands, and other accessories.
Boxes of shoes lined the room during the Trunk Show.

Jeffrey Campbell was just one of the brands of footwear present.
Lindsay Allen, who is KKG’s Philanthropy Chair, briefly told me about planning the event. She organized and publicized the Trunk Show along with about ten of her KKG sisters. It was KKG’s first ever Trunk Show and Lindsay hopes to have another one next year. “It’s a fun idea,” she said, “every house should try it.”
Shoppers dig through the piles for the best pieces.
DJ Amelia Silverwood provided the music for the event.
My ears were pleased by the DJ music of KKG’s very own Amelia Silverwood. Amelia is in Cal’s DJ Decal and the Trunk Show was the first event she covered. Griffin Goc, who teaches the DJ Decal, said that Amelia was “doing a great job of making people buy stuff.” After Amelia nodded in confirmation, Griffin announced that Amelia was “making me proud.”
Some of the delicious desserts provided at the show.
Even complimentary treats were fashionably color-coordinated: cupcakes, taffy, and other treats were all blue and purple. I hadn’t had taffy in quiet a while and was very pleased.

In addition to the sale from 7-9pm, LF and KKG also held one-on-one styling sessions during the day. Many girls from other sororities as well as ladies not from houses came by to get styled for upcoming events. KKG gave out a complimentary styling session to whichever sorority brought the most girls to the event. Overall, the event was a success and KKG earned 10% from each sale for Reading is Fundamental. I can’t wait for their next Trunk Show!
