Saturday was the Big Bum Jumble! It was AMAZING. In fact, I cannot put into words what a fantastic event it was. I bought lots of brilliant clothes, including some lovely vintage pieces, some jeans for The Girlfriend, some accessories and a corset. (I will, of course, do another post on my items in the week.)
I think the best thing about the whole event was the atmosphere. Everyone was lovely, encouraging people to try things on and picking bits out for each other. I think this is what made the event so special... The overall positive 'feel' of the event and the welcoming feeling you got when you were there. I met so many lovely and genuine people, that I will no doubt be meeting again.
During the afternoon, there was a fashion show, with models showing off what was donated to the jumble. A group volunteered to do the catwalk, and in the group were myself ,Lauren of The Pocket Rocket Amy of Wolf Whistle and Charlotte of Obesity Timebomb to name but a few! It was so much fun!
This is me, walking the catwalk! (Thanks for taking the photos, Femmie!) I know you can't see my outfits very well, but I think I was walking a little too fast for Femmie to take any decent ones. You will be pleased to know that I purchased the red dress (it's polka dot!) in the 1st photo, and I also purchased the little blue jackety item in the 2nd.
As you can see from the photos, the event also had the Unskinny Bop DJs, which was also brilliant.
I would really like to say thank you and well done to Kay Hyatt, who was the principal organiser of the event. It was a great day, and something that will be talked about for years to come.
