I am forever a fan of boxing. Yes, I know that's a little strange as a fashionista, but it's just something about getting in that ring that excites me. Then again, who doesn't love a good battle? Well, what about a fashion battle?
To launch the new location for Green Jeans Consignment sale in SouthPark, co-owners and sisters Cindy Williams and Dana Degan will host their very first "Style Challenge." It's a wonderful opportunity for three lucky stylists to raise awareness for their favorite charity as well as to show off their styling skills.
On Thursday, Aug. 2, just before the Green Jeans Consignment pre-sale begins, challenging stylists will be granted one hour to create a head-to-toe look for their models. The catch? The ensemble cannot cost more than $100. Shopping on a budget? Now that's my kind of shopping.
The lucky stylists for this "fashion battle," Christine Nelson (Simply Sassy), Marguerite Rupar (Doncaster Charlotte) and Whitley Hamlin (The Queen City Style) will rise to the challenge no doubt, as these ladies will have more than 20,000 items to choose from. I'm talking thousands of brand names on everything from shoes to accessories and dresses to, of course, jeans.
And, you can play a part in this "battle" too. It's time to pull out your judging pen: the Green Jeans fans will serve as the judges. The stylist with the most votes will win $100 toward the charity of her choice, and her model will be given the winning outfit. This is an event jam packed with fun, all while you shop and since it attracts over 1000 shoppers each season, it's one you certainly don't want to miss!
