Savers Holiday Fashion Show

Eight beautiful women and one handsome man took to the runway at Summerlin Savers, vying for the title of…

hmm, I actually forgot what the trophy said. Oh well! The title doesn’t matter, what does matter is the fashion!!

Here we go!

Contestant #1

Head to toe : $44.00

Best find : it’s a tie

Cole Haan shoes $20.00

Chico’s wrap

Side note : Kenna is one of the original people I styled when I had my thrift styling business THRIFT ME OVER. At that time, she flew to ABQ, NM and had me style her and a friend. After seeing my post about Savers first fashion show back in August, she decided to drive in from CA with her two daughters and walk the runway!

Yes, I styled her for the show.

It took three hours.

Hey, we were busy talking and getting distracted by all the brand new (with tags) Chico’s clothing that was in the store. Seriously, it was amazing how much was there.

BTW : this look is totally out of her comfort zone but she loved it!

Isn’t that right, Kenna…

Kenna???

Contestant #5

Machele

Machele

Head to toe : $46.00

Best find : Stuart Weitzman sandals  for only $10!!

These retailed new for around $600 and I found this exact pair selling online at therealreal for $75.00. Savers had them marked at $16.99 but shoes were 40% off so…

 

Machele is Kenna’s daughter and reluctantly agreed to be a model.

Yes, I styled her for the show, too. I put this look together in ten minutes.

Contestant #6

Phyllis

Head to toe : $55.00

Best find : it’s a tie

INC jacket $25

Gold turtleneck (with the $58 SteinMart tag still on it) $12.99

Phyllis is the Editor of scsliving.com, an online newsletter about Sun City Summerlin.

Her outfit is a perfect example of the importance of having a statement coat. When you live in a cold climate, your coat is sometimes all that people ever see of your outfit.

  1. Thank you again Darlene! It was a great event. We had so much fun! I did love the outfit you put together for me! Machele looked amazing and now we have turned her into a thrifter! Next time we will convince Rachel to participate as well. I loved meeting the other contestants and Ed and Greg, and of course shopping with you.
    Enjoy the with your boys!

  5. Since you styled the winner that’s clearly a win for you too Darlene! I’m pretty sure that the thrift shopping in the Vegas area is a cut above the typical fare found in many Savers/Goodwills around the country. This event is really impressive and you as MC makes it even more so.

    1. Thanks! I do feel like it’s a win for me. But the bigger win is that now Machele sees how great thrifting is and has turned to the ‘thrift side’. Her mom and sister were already huge thrifters. I’m always happy when I can show people how stylish they can be when they shop thrift!
