We incorporated our thrift store tips throughout the fashion show.  We taught the women how we approach a thrift store and the techniques we have acquired to find quality items.

Our final scene, was of course, formal wear since you can’t end a show without a bang.  I think it’s safe to say everyone was blown away by the amazing formal gowns that we brought out!  All of these gowns, with the exception of one, which cost $9.99, were only $2 from the Family Thrift Outlet stores!

We concluded the talk with tips on how to create a wardrobe from basic pieces.  We started with creating a color palette, then adding essentials that you can mix and match.

Whew, it was over, but all too soon!  We absolutely loved presenting to the women’s group and we think the style show turned out amazing given that we went in totally blind!  Now it’s time to prepare for our next upcoming one this weekend!
