Time to Dress for Spring!

Following on the immense success of our last evening at The OPC, we have decided to reprise the event this spring. Here is all the salient information for you

Date: Wednesday 27 September 2017
Time: 7 pm
Place: 1 Sandela Court, corner Olifants and Levubu Roads, Emmarentia
Cost: R130 per person (includes snacks and drinks)

What is this? You may well ask.
Well, The OPC is a vintage clothing store. They have all sorts of amazing things in stock. Whether it is a ball gown, a wedding dress, a pair of 1990s Prada heels or a bikini from the 1960s, they have it in stock.
We are giving you this opportunity to have a sophisticated evening of socialising, meeting like-minded people and trying on these amazing clothes in a safe and accepting environment.

Plus, this is a wonderful opportunity to refresh and extend your spring and summer wardrobe with some amazing and unique clothes. Clothes that you will definitely not find in the stores. Why follow the crowd when you can be an original?

As an added bonus, Ilse Wils Chetty, a merchandise planner at Jet and a lifestyle and fashion blogger will be giving us a talk on ‘What is hot for summer and how to make it your own’. This will hopefully give us all some insight into fashion trends and some ideas for that wardrobe.

Lesley, the owner of The OPC is a member of the LGBT community and as such is welcoming and accepting. She is putting on some eats and drinks, has agreed to extend her opening hours for us and will also ensure that the interior of the shop is not visible to any prying eyes.

Some of you found the last event difficult to get to as it was on a Friday. We are hoping that by moving this to a Wednesday you will find it easier to attend. So why not come around have some fun, meet some sisters and maybe even buy some clothes (or some jewellery).

We will need to have an idea of numbers for catering purposes, so we would appreciate it if you can book with us by no later than 22 September, to book your tickets, simply click here and give us your name and number of tickets required and we will reserve your place. To pay for your tickets you can simply click on the ‘BUY NOW’ button to the right (or maybe bottom if you are using a mobile device to browse) of this page. It is just under the ‘PAY WITH PAYPAL’ heading. This will enable you to pay us using a credit card or your PayPal account (if you have one). Alternatively, please contact us and we will make an alternative arrangement for you.
Please note that this is a private event and that you must book and pay in advance. No ‘walk ins’ will be accepted.

Of course, anyone needing a place to dress for the evening, help with makeup, a place to stay or any other services should contact us so that we can assist you.

Should you have any other queries please do not hesitate to contact us. We look forward to seeing you all on 27 September.

Irene at Work: Melissa

As noted previously, a number of our clients prefer to remain as discrete and private as possible. We totally understand and ‘get’ that. It does however make ‘advertising’ our service a bit tricky. Melissa came to one our social events last year and got her makeup done by Irene. She has very kindly agreed to share her pictures from that wintry night with us all. Doesn’t she look great?

Irene always does the kind of style and ‘look’ you want. I think Melissa looks lovely and naturally feminine here. A great look for her. Nothing over the top, nothing too extreme. Just a woman looking her best for an evening out.

If you are interested, you can always book a session and see just how amazing and beautiful a good makeover can make you feel!
