A Girls Night in Ready for a Girls Night Out

A Girls Night in Ready for a Girls Night Out

Recently I began working at Debenhams as their part time personal shopper in Worthing. I’m loving it!

I have a Personal Shopper suite, a huge range of designers and a variety of bodies to find clothes for different occasions every day!

In order to let everyone know that this service existed we held a Girls Night In Ready for a Girls Night Out with a fashion show
on November 14th.

We donated 50% of ticket sales to the breast cancer campaign.

We sold over £170 tickets.

The Mayor of Worthing officially opened the personal shopping suite; having experienced the service earlier and wore the dress she got that time.

Discussing which way to tie the bow!

She then went on to model a Julien MacDonald body con dress with leopard skin belt later on that night.

The Mayor carried the matching leopard print shoes as they were a little too high for catwalk strutting, but you get the idea girls…match belt with shoes.

The other models were a mix of Style Me Confident clients who had been to the Debenhams personal shopping suite, Judy Nash the £500 competition winner & friends who were easily cajoled into modelling after being dressed with fabulous outfits from Debenhams by Gay.

I compared the two fashion shows to demonstrate that everyone whatever size, shape or age can look fabulous for any occasion

My dress was from Red Herring a sparkly black number with a playful hemline (short!) so opaque tights were essential for age appropriateness, the sheer sleeves + peter pan collar were enough of a nod towards 2011 fashion for a slightly older girlie. The shoe boots gave me some height and are also on trend

I had slightly altered the sleeves as they were completely split, showing way too much arm, so I sewed them up to the elbow – genius! My dark grey nail varnish lasted a day but I loved it!

Alison was one of the yummy mummy’s in a Manteray tunic which she would never have picked as it was patterned. Alison wore it as a dress with opaque tights and boots and carries a satchel bag – so up to date, comfortable and suits her down to a tee.

Then there was Emma, our second yummy mummy who wore the same tunic, as a tunic with jeggins and boots and a bright pink scarf to highlight the pink in the tunic. Emma also wore her much loved John Rocha cardy which is now her favourite. She is a closet cardy lover!

Amanda wore a fabulous John Rocha tunic/dress in autumnal colours which suited her warm soft colouring perfectly. Teamed with high heels she was ready for a night on the town.

Liz is all wrapped up for winter in fabulous Jasper Conran red skinny jeans; We layered her body with a rust toning T-shirt from Red Herring and a chunky knit cropped jumper from John Rocha- the finishing touch was a fur and cable knit scarf – nailing 2 trends in one go!

Alison showed the desk to dinner look is easily created by loosing the cardigan, changing the shoes and bag and donning jewellery – we loved the fabulous fuchsia coloured blouse (petite collection) – very on trend.

Maureen our gorgeous granny in her ‘best summer colours’ Julien MacDonald tunic teamed with John Rocha ponte trousers that are smart yet endlessly comfortable.

Judy was wearing a Debut long black and white evening gown with a front draped piece to hide any parts that didn’t want to be shown!
It’s all tricks ladies. It’s just knowing them!
