Forever Yours Charity Fashion Show

I had the opportunity to attend a lingerie fashion show last week at the store that was featured in my first post on this blog: Forever Yours.  The show was for charity, so it was practically impossible to not go, plus there was a sale afterwards at the store, and I was needing some new bras so: hooray!  I took my friend Jen and we had a great time!  Here are some pics of the show, which was really well-done.  If they ever have another one, I’ll definitely go, and so should you!

Setting the stage…

This is how I'll spend my retirement years: sitting in a pink chair with a roof on it in lingerie.

The runway: pink, of course.

Every lingerie shop needs a fireplace, because lingerie won't keep you warm.

The lounge area, which I'm a big fan of in any store.  This one is particularly lovely.

There were also ladies going around with food, in bustiers of course!

This is where my camera died and I had to use my phone so it's a little blurry.  I had to post it though: she's a sexy santa!

Shopping after the show…

My lovely friend Jen from Dragonfly Consulting: She's brilliant at organizing events AND attending them!  She was an awesome date, and got Christmas gifts for her hubby!

And then it was time for trying on some bras…

Selfie in the changing room! I haven't worn this dress in years, and I had never worn it with a crinoline underneath until that night.  The verdict: total win!

This was the lady who helped me in the fitting room: beautiful Holly Rose.  Can you believe her outfit?!?  I wanted it, but she got the dress in Ireland.  The top, however, was purchased in Willowbrook Mall.  Anyway, she was a sweetie and a big help!

Looking for a dress like Holly Rose’s?  Try this one at Modcloth, this one at Asos, and this pink one at Dress911.

 

So no bra shots, because this is not that kind of blog.  Rest assured though, I got 2 beautiful bras so the night was a huge win on every level.  Tons of fun, community outreach, delightfully social AND beautiful undergarments at a discount.  Thank you, Forever Yours!
