Nifty and Thrifty

I attended the HospiceCare Thrift Store Fashion Show a week ago. I was delighted to see the great outfits the staff at the store (headed by retail manager Judy Purcell) came up with. Chief among my favorite combos were a bright red-and-white flowered, cropped jacket paired with white pants and white leather cutout slides; a tres chic green, three-quarter sleeved flowered jacket with a bronze-trimmed lapel; a St. John knit skirt suit in vibrant lemon-yellow with white trim. The show ended in true “high-fashion,” um, fashion: a model sashayed through the room in a flowy wedding dress with a princess neckline and small tiara. Models were Thrift Store and HospiceCare employees and showcased three to four looks each. After the show, attendees could purchase outfits and accessories. Judging by the packed house, the show looked as if it accomplished its goal: raising awareness of the HospiceCare Thrift Store. hospicecareinc.com
