Fashion-Mommy was amongst those who braved the freezing conditions on Wednesday night to enjoy an evening of high fashion and cocktails in aid of children’s charity, Newlife.
The Bank Bar and Lounge was again the venue for a fashion evening in aid of Newlife. This was cleverly entitled Sex in the City 2, tying in nicely to the newly released sequel. Half price Cosmopolitans were on offer, as well as an array of tasty nibbles for those who found that the shopping made them peckish.
There were amazing bargains to be had on the night. Beautiful party dresses in sizes that ranged from 6-24 were available for a fraction of the original High street retail price. These included full length and fabulous gowns as well as slinky cocktail dresses. There were also a good selection of glittery sequined blazers and tailored jackets that could provide the perfect cover up to your little black dress. These were retailing at just £15!
There were also amazing shoes and boxy evening bags on offer. I could resist a pair of gorgeous Karen Millen Mary Janes with a Holly Fulton style Art Deco heel. These were also £15, which feels like the bargain of the century for such an amazing pair of shoes. I also picked up two pairs of Chandelier earrings for £1 each. The fashion mags have been full of celebrities like Beyoncé wearing these, and they will make a fantastic addition to my Christmas wardrobe. I also spotted a River Island bag that I had purchased last summer for £25 available for just £8!
There were also necklaces, bracelets, sunglasses and larger day bags for purchase. Each purchase was rewarded with Vicktor and Rolf perfume samples, another incentive, if any more was needed.
Newlife are currently trying to raise £371,765 in order to buy equipment to support the needs of 126 children. If you weren’t able to get along to the Sex in The City Nights held in Stourbridge and Cannock, take a look at their online auctions on Ebay that are being updated every day at www.newlifecharity.co.uk/eBay, or you could pop along to the Newlife superstore based in Hemlock Way, Cannock. They have many Christmas bargains available, and you would be sure to find a special outfit for New Years Eve.
