Vintage Clothing Evening: Reminder and Details

OK everyone, the big event of the winter is nearly upon us, so I thought we needed to give everyone all the salient information (and a gentle reminder).

Date: 14 July 2017
Time: 7 pm
Place: 1 Sandela Court, corner Olifants and Levubu Roads, Emmarentia
Cost: R115 per person (includes food and drink)

What is this? I hear you all 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 on stock. And 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.

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. There will also be security for our cars in the parking area in front of the shop.

So why not come round have some fun, meet some sisters and maybe even buy some clothes (or some jewelry).

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 11 July. 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 juts 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.

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 14 July.

Time to PARTY Like a Rock Star

Newsflash

Awesome news, The Gay Club is hosting a party on 24 June.
The party is a Queen of Hearts Drag Party and it looks like  it will be a lot of fun.

Obviously being en femme will be accepted and you will definitely not be the only one out and about en femme! The Priscilla’s team would be more than happy to help you prepare for this fabulous event in any way we can. Specifically, we can provide the following services should you need them:
Makeup: make yourself look your very best*
Shopping for the perfect outfit for the party (either as a professional service, or just to go with you and help you out)

A venue to get ready at for the party

Priscilla’s is not exactly next door to the Gay Club, but we are only 30 or so minutes away, so convenience is not much of an issue.

Here are all the details from the club’s Facebook event:

The Gay Club can be found at the corner of Gibb & North Rand Roads, Boksburg (upstairs from Silverado’s Pub & Grill).

This looks like it is going to be a lot of fun and there will be a lot of gurls out and about. For those of you concerned about such things, please do nit be concerned by the word ‘gay’ in the title. You will be welcomed as a member of the LGBT community regardless of your sexual preference. Being a crossdresser/transgender means you will be accepted and you will certainly not be pressured into anything you do not want… The very worst that can happen is that nobody will offer to buy you a drink/hit on you all night! Kidding! Seriously, you will be welcomed and accepted and you will be free to be yourself. If you have any concerns please do not hesitate to contact us and we will happily talk you through what to expect. As to those of you who are looking for a little romantic action… Well until you get out there, you will never know!
I hope to see you all there!

May Newsletter

Well well well… Autumn is well and truly here. The leaves are turning their usual lovely shades of red, yellow, brown and yes, still some green. The temperature is dropping steadily and there is a decided chill in the air at night and in the early morning. Yet the days are as ever filled with sunshine. I am not looking forward to winter as I dislike the cold, but I suppose it is a good excuse to pull out those jerseys, boots and other woollies and try a whole new set of fashion ideas out.

As usual we would like to extend a very warm welcome to our new clients and of course say hello to all our existing clients. We hope that you are all as happy working with us as we are working with you.

We have had a very busy few months. March was a whirlwind of taking the studio from an empty shell to a warm, welcoming and pleasant place to be. April continued in that vein as we attended to minor details and dotted the T’s and crossed the I’s (well we do like to do things differently around here). Then of course there were all the holidays and associated activities to deal with, so April was busy but a lot of fun. We were of course also happy to welcome a few clients to the studio and do the odd makeover.

We have had a number of people stay over in the studio and we would like to remind all you out of towners that the studio is available for overnight stays as well as for daytime dressing. The rates are competitive and we offer a quiet discreet and accepting place where you can be yourself. We offer bed and breakfast and can assist you with places to eat out, or self catering solutions.

We continue to grow and we are hopeful of building a really vibrant community of people. Right now many of you are (understandably) quite nervous and not willing to take the risk of socialising. For those of you who are getting ready to find new friends, we are happy to say that we are working on some social ideas in the coming months. These include a number of different ideas including a cheese and wine evening in a retail store! The store will be closed for the evening and only invited guests will be allowed in. You can socialise, try on some spectacular clothes and generally have a blast. More details to follow…

Those of you who have booked, please do not forget our trip to Priscilla Queen of the Desert in May. Sadly we have had a few cancellations already, but the reviews for the show that I have seen have been very positive and I am sure we will have a fabulous time. We were at Monte Casino last week planning logistics and finding a place to meet. We will send details to those who have booked in a week or so.

As always please do not hesitate to contact us to book or to get additional information on any of our services.

Looking forward to hearing from you all soon.

The Priscilla’s Team
