Hey hey Thrifters!
A few weeks ago I attended the Wearwoof Boutique Little Black Dress Party. It was a fundraiser for the Wearwoof Boutique, which is a upscale resale boutique where retail proceeds goes towards homeless animals. They are considered an animal welfare organization. Their goal is to support the work of approved shelters and rescues whose mission is aligned with their mission. I was so honored to be invited by my new thrifty friend Christine, founder of The Thrifty Yinzer. She is on the board for Wearwoof Boutique and was the MC for the Little Black Dress event.
The event was great! They had food, music, makeup and it was good opportunity to network. They also had a tone of items from the boutique, gift baskets and designer handbags for raffle prizes. Oh and did I mention one of the purses was a Prada! Yes ma'am :) So, I purchased about 25 raffle tickets for $20. Then I search the tables for the prizes l wanted to win.
For some of the jewelry and luxury bags they had models carry them around to make sure everyone got to to see them. For my last raffle ticket I saw a model carrying a beautiful purple rhinestone flower necklace. I wasn't sure where I'd wear it to, but it was gorgeous! So I put in my last raffle ticket, and guess what? I won! Now, I'll have to find the perfect thrift outfit to pair with this fabulous necklace.
Overall, the night was so much fun! Me and my friends had a great time. I'm so glad I got to participate in this awesome event for a great cause. To learn more about Wearwoof Boutique go to Wearwoof.org. See how you can contribute to this amazing organization.
