Lilly sat while the flirty behavior swarmed around the table, all directed at Sam. She shook her head, these girls were going to bug the crap out of Sam.
"I agree with Gia Sam, it would be wise," She said a smile flitting across her face. She was not like these girls, but she could see that Sam was attractive, but she was not the kind of girl to mess with a guy...unless that guy was Leon. She shook her head again.
"Sam! thats Birlliant," She said, her smile growing. She had not even thought about that. "And we could, with the permission of the designer of course, auction off the clothes for donation," She looked to callie with her idea about a silent movie.

Gioia sat there frozen. What Sam said hit her hard. Living her first eleven years on the streets, she knew what it was to get clothes from charity. It was a part of her that she buried and never wanted to escape. No one knew about her live before that. They all thought she was the Park Avenue Princess. She didn't want anyone to know exactly how she was raised. Living with nothing more than a backpack filled with everything that she owned, going to school dirty since half the time there was no running water, not knowing when her next meal would be, it struck her hard. Suddenly her latte didn't taste as good as it use to. The coffee cup was still in her hand. Snap out of it! she yelled at herself.
Taking a deep breath her voice finally came out from deep inside her throat. "Well that's a marvelous idea Sam." Her color had returned to her face.
As she listened to Callie's idea, she saw it happening in her head. The movies, the clothes, the fun. "Love the idea Cals and that coming from you, wow sista. You are full of them today." As she saw the show playing out in her head, she couldn't help but to think about the music that would playing. Something that would reflect the old movies yet go with the steam punk theme. "Let's remix some of the songs that were used in old silent films. Give it that punk vibe that the them will be. But I'm not the music major here, dance yes music no."

"You in a fashion show, would be to die for."
"You're just saying that because you want to share a dressing room with me," Gia retorted snarkily. Taking a sip of her drink, she turned to Lilly and said, "Give me some time to think about it. In the mean time, I'll help with the food and Sam's charity idea, if you don't mind?" she asked him.
At the talk of music and some minor suggestions, Gia only said, "Maybe leave the music to Sam? Or work with him on it? He said it was his forte and, by the looks of it, he's already got some ideas." Subtly, she nodded to the list Sam had begun writing.

Callie smiled at everyone while they agreed for her idea and felt slightly successful then she looked over at Gio and smiled at her efforts to woo Sam which I wouldn’t be surprised if they worked, She was quite the catch.
"You're just saying that because you want to share a dressing room with me,"
Callie couldn’t help but glare and smirk at her. Oh shes horrible. “Well, I’m sure none of us would complain,” She couldn’t help, but argue when leaning on the table to look across at the other costumers. Such a strange situation she thought looking at them. How casual it was for witches to get together and plan a party. It still kind of blew her mind.
She looked over at Sam and shrugged. “I’m content with anything you have…but I beg you, please add The Midnight Beast.” She smiled as one of their songs played in her head and fought the instinct to dance in her chair.

Gioia smiled as she decided to volunteer herself for something. She didn't want to look like the girl who let everyone do everything for her. "I've got the fashion show under control Lils to take something off your plate. Like making sure we all have outfits and that there is enough to go around and," she looked over at Gia, "that you don't have to share a dressing room with Callie. But I'm sure Callie won't mind if we share one." She nudged her friend and winked.
As Callie mentioned music, Gioia clapped her hands together. Her blue eyes looked over at Sam. "I second that. And as long as you have Ke$ha and Gaga, I say you are set." She smiled at him and then turned her attention back to her latte which she decided she could indulge in once again.

Alex sat quietly and listened to her friends as they talked, looking over the menu before placing it back down on the table and sliding her black sunglasses up to the top of her head when a guy walked up to them. "Ladies. My name's Sam." She looked between Gioia and Callie, noticing their winking, and laughed a bit, before shaking her head and pursing her lips to hold back a remark. This was typical, Callie flirting with and dangling guys from her finger tips. Alex just stayed quiet, trying to make the remains of her hangover disappear and not really knowing what input she could have on any of the subjects, really. Not when she was hungover, at least. Maybe, on any other day, but, today was just one of her... well, bad days.
The topic of a fashion show came up, and she had the instinctive feeling to book it and hide for as long as she could. Fashion shows and Alex... seriously didn't mix. Her friends were all girly and liked to dress up and go all out strut down the sidewalks of New York and whatnot, but she was that one girl who hated dresses, (unless she wore leggings or jeans beneath them, that was the only exception) let alone being in the spotlight while she walked like a goddamn barbie doll up and down some runway... thing. She was surprised when Callie voiced her opinion about the fashion show. "I-I don't know about all that," Alex raised her eyebrows, and took out her water bottle from her bag, then took a sip. "I love you and all, Lils, but I don't think that'd be a good idea for me. I'm mean, I've never even been to a fashion show, let alone thought about being in one. I'd probably fall flat on my face or something."
She let out a gentle laugh, and shifted in her chair so she was facing her friend that sat beside her. "Cal, you're kidding me, right? You're like the poster child for fashion. I can guarantee you're not going to fall flat on your face. You already strut around school in really expensive stuff. What's the difference now? You're not awkward like I am, Callie. You own this." Alex smiled and tilted her head to the side slightly, a playful look in her dark green eyes. "Besides, I bet all the guys'll be drooling their asses off watching you walk down the runway in a totally hot dress. You wouldn't want to dissapoint them, would you?" Alex looked at Sam like he was frigging Einstein when he mentioned the idea of donating the clothes to a homeless shelter.
"Holy crap, that's an awesome idea! I mean, I-- well, the stuff doesn't only have to go to a homeless shelter. There are so many families that I could locate in New York, that can't afford hardly anything. We could do, like, a ding dong ditch thing, and leave a bag of clothes on some people's porches... Um, nevermind." She coughed awkwardly and took a sip of her water, looking around the room. This was one of the main reasons she stuck to sitting in the way back of the classroom at school; she often started babbling when she started talking about ideas and such. But anywho... Then the topic of music came up, and she sat up a bit straighter. "Definately Ke$ha and Gaga. And Katie Perry. Maybe even I know a DJ, if we need one. He's... an old family friend, and would probably do it for free if I asked." Alex took another drink of her water, and slipped it back into her bookbag. This was going to be fun. Or, at least, it should be. She never knew anymore. Fun nowadays either ended in death or sex, or even both, so... she just kind of went with it.

Lilly sat, listening to all the talk and flirting going on. She grew slightly tired of all of it. She knew this was supposed to be fun, but she was turning slightly from it. Still with a smile on her face, and with a hint of ice to her voice, she started to run down everything in her mind, and then to say it out loud.
"Okay, so we have the caterer, the decorators, the music, the events planned, and the fashion show under wraps, everyone will participate," She said, raising an eye brow to everyone, not taking no for an answer. "I think that is it, so if we have nothing more to discuss, i think we are done here," She said, standing.
She bent over the table and collected all of the things she would need. "I will call the designers of the clothes to see if we can auction off their clothes for a donation to homeless shelters, and the more wearable clothes, we will donate them to the families that you know Alex, because if you donate to some places, you cannot be sure it reaches who we want, and Alex, call up those families, and get their information, they will be invited to the fashion show, and given things that they can pick out from what we can give them," She looked around, sure that everyone knew what they had to do. "Now, im off to get my house ready for this, and get everyone ordered," she siad, and strode out of the coffee shop.
