Last month I attended a fundraising party to benefit the Junior League of San Jose’s Rummage Sale. As a Sustainer in the Junior League, I am extremely proud of this fundraiser and all the hard work our active members put into making it happen; and be a success! The Rummage Sale is a fundraiser we put on once every two years. We sell high quality rummage at rock bottom prices. The fundraiser works in two ways: rummage is donated, so proceeds go directly to the Junior League’s community programs, and secondly, the community is able to purchase much-needed items which are high quality; new or gently used, and offered at unheard of prices. It’s a win/win fundraiser for everyone involved! Love that!
The party we held the night before the Rummage Sale was to celebrate the hard work our Rummage Sale committee put into making the event such as success. Since we know how to celebrate our success in the Junior League through fun, themed events, this event was western themed. This meant everyone who attended wore fabulous western get-ups. It was so much fun trying to recognize people under those hats!
Since I have never been to a western themed party before, I had to find a fabulous pair of boots and a hat! Thankfully, I am a sucker for denim shirts, and fringe is on trend this season; so I was able to put together an outfit without buying clothing. I was thrilled to find this hat for under $50 and these comfortable, sleek cowgirl boots for a decent price. Shopping win!
I know I will be able to wear the hat and boots again; as well as the whole ensemble. There is an annual ho-down for the girl scouts which I always bring my daughters to; now I can dress up! This will also make a great Halloween costume! And who knows, another western themed fundraiser or party could pop up in my future.
Since fringe is all the rage right now, this is a great time to snap up a fringe item which can also work for a western themed costume in the future. You never know when you need to dress up!
