Last night myself and my eldest daughter Stevie took part in a fashion show to raise funds for the local school she attends and for Joseph Salmon Trust, a small charity who offer financial assistance to people living in the Huddersfield, Halifax and Mirfield areas, whose child has died.
The evening offered the opportunity to buy ex-chainstore clothing at reduced prices and there was an array of brands including Next, Dorothy Perkins, Per Una, Whistles, Jane Norman, Boden and many others.
I have to say the school, the parent committee and the charity did an amazing job! Wine on arrival, plus one of the school cooks had made up some delicacies to sample during the evening from mini cupcakes and scones to artisan breadsticks and open sandwiches – I wish lunch was like that when I was at school! The raffle prizes were also pretty amazing from a box of cupcakes to handbags, it really was a lovely evening.
So after modelling a number of items I was keen to make a few purchases of my own, you had to be quick though as the audience were keen to grab a bargain from Complete Clothing, the company who runs events like these to help raise money for charitable organisations. Complete Clothing is based in the North of England so if you want to hold a fun evening raising money for your organisation, these people are worth looking into.
So my items, well of course I went for black which for anyone who knows me is my signature colour and managed to grab a whole outfit for just £31!
- Black Skull Scarf – £7
- Jane Norman Black Jeans with Ankle Zips – £18 (would most likely RRP around £30+)
- Black Dipped Back Top – £6 (can’t see brand as label is cut out
Can’t wait to wear it all – ironed of course!
