Last Sunday I was invited to attend “Beauty and the Pleats,” a silent auction fundraiser benefiting Edmonton’s Suit Yourself at LUX Beauty Boutique and this is what I wore. These trousers are the most comfortable pair of pants I own. I've waited all winter to be able to wear them again!
Suit Yourself is a local charitable organization that collects quality clothing and accessories through donations and distributes them to low-income, disadvantaged women who are seeking employment and/or entering the workforce. When I first heard about the event I thought, “Wow, what a great idea!” and I was so happy to attend and support the community. The afternoon was filled with fun make-up demo’s and mini-seminars, yummy cupcakes from Crave, mimosa’s and bellini’s (mmmm bellini’s), swag bags and of course an amazing silent auction. People could bid on gift baskets full of fabulous cosmetics and the hottest skincare and hair care products that LUX carries in their store. (Scroll down to see what I took home with me!) Also, if you brought in any used toiletries you received $10.00 worth of LUX bucks!
This is inside the store. I was in beauty HEAVEN!
Many of the products you thought you had to buy online if you live in Canada you can actually buy at LUX.

Swag bags and prizes for the guests!
Closeup #2. I went for this gift basket because of the "Seriously Dark Circles" cream that was in it ; ) I'm praying it works so I won't look like the grim reaper who has to wear pounds of concealer on her face everyday. I really can't believe all of the amazing products I got. I was like a little kid on Christmas morning looking at all of this stuff! Needless to say I had a great time at Beauty and the Pleats and was so happy to hear that $3000.00 was raised for Suit Yourself in just a few hours : ).
