Are you as scared of shopping as I am? Perhaps it’s something about malls (I feel too small in them), or the over eager sales representative that seems a little too enthusiastic to ask me about my clothing size. If you’re not my friend I am not going to tell you. Seriously. Whatever it is, I love clothes, don’t get me wrong, but am a little timid when it comes to setting foot into a store to look for new costumes with which to adorn myself.
Enter the much anticipated event called the Prom Dress Extravaganza…it’s got to do with dresses and it’s got nothing to do with the mall!
But speaking of which, even if you love the mall, you may not find what you’re looking for if you limit yourself. Nor will you find your own style if you copy a mannequin. So, even if you love shopping, you should come check it out.
Some of my best dresses are what is known as “pre-loved.” Actually, some of my best clothes in general are clothes that I have traded, or swapped, with my friends. This program lets you do just that – swap clothes, or just simply add some style to any new or used dress. A designer is going to be there to help you find your own new chic creative way of reinventing a dress. Not to mention that you will get to take a dress home – there will be many dresses, in many colours, and you could end up with the dress of your dreams.
It’s happening at both the Bowness and Village Square libraries. You do need to register, which you can do easily with your library card – natch! The link and the dates are as follows: Bowness, Saturday March 3rd from 1-2:30pm, and at Village Square on Saturday March 10th from, 1:30-3pm.
