Swapping:The Savvy Way to Shop Wednesday 28th September from 7pm at The Windlestrae Hotel, Kinross, Tickets £5

This year, due to popular demand we have decided to expand our annual Birthday Bash where we showcase our Autumn Winter range.

 

All those of you out there who have been styled by us, have been asking for a Clothes Swapping event for years.  We all have some clangers in our wardrobe that we know no longer (or maybe never did!) suit us – but as the saying goes one woman’s trash is another woman’s treasure, so help us raise money for CHAS by delving into the depths of your wardrobe and coming along to this fun evening.

 

It’s a win win – you clear your closet, you have a fun night out with friends, you help raise money for a fab cause, you help save the planet and you might even find yourself some style treasures!!

 

Tickets are selling fast, so get in touch to reserve yours.  We know some of you “classic wardrobe personalities” out there are worried about the rules ( and the dress code of their trash!) Hope this helps:

 

How many items should I bring?  Please bring 5 carefully worn garments on hangers. NB a suit counts as 2 items.

 

Does it have to be designer?  No.  This is a fun fundraising evening – we are not attaching monetary value to the items, but we do request that the garments you bring are clean and in good condition(no buttons missing etc).

 

Do I have to bring 5 items?  Yes, to make the event a success for everyone we need a wide range of styles & sizes, but if you really want to come and don’t have 5 items please give us a call and we will see what we can do.

 

What else is happening on the night?  We will be showing you how to make the Autumn Winter trends work for you, as well as being on hand to offer style advice on your finds!

 

There will be a fashion show using CHAS clothes and us showing you how the stylists turn charity to catwalk.

 

Also, a raffle for CHAS with some great prizes.

 

There will also be a nutritionalist on hand to offer advice.

 

Shop Smart

Make a list – know what you are shopping for.

Try to shop at the start of the week when there are less crowds.

Wear your flat shoes on the day (but take your heels with you for trying on night time partywear).

We always say that your underwear will make or break an outfit, so get it right to  achieve your best results.

Another shopping secret is to wear cosmetics when shopping as this will put you higher up on the shop assistants ranking, meaning you get more attention and help – try it, it works honestly.

If you can’t face the shops, why not have your own  shopping event in the house with friends.  We can bring along our new ranges of Jewellery, Bags, Scarves and Shrugs for you to browse and try with your own personal stylist on hand for advice.  If you want to find out more or book a date just get in touch.

 

Sales Shopping

Integro loves………..A Bargain

However, all that glitters is not gold , so here are our top tips for successful sales shopping.

THINK, would you have bought this if it was full price – if not, why not?  If the answer is just because it was outwith your budget, otherwise it is perfect, then go for it and enjoy, but don’t make the mistake of buying something just because it is cheap.  Spending £10 on something you will never wear, is throwing your money away.

Shop for your wardrobe and lifestyle – where does this garment fit into your wardrobe?  If you get it home and then have to buy something new to wear with it, it’s not a bargain.

Don’t let an overenthusiastic sales assistant talk you into clearing her shelves for her.

Keeping this in mind, there are some fantastic reductions out there.  This is a great time to acquire classic, quality pieces at a fraction of the price and also some on trend pieces to keep your look updated.

Don’t lose your head in the bargain frenzy of the sales.

Focus on our Successful Dressing  Mantra :

Is it a good colour for me? Does it flatter my bodyshape? Is it my style?

Happy Shopping.
