August can be kind of a bummer month. If you're a kid, you have to go back to school, and for the rest of us, it's just hot and humid and nasty, and that makes everyone grumpy.
So, in the spirit of making people less grumpy, the Scene and our fancy sister pub Nfocus are once again offering Fashion For a Fraction tomorrow, Aug. 24, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Hillsboro High School gym. If you like to go shopping, you're aware that August is also a time in which many stores are clearing out summer merch at super low prices, and you'll be seeing a lot of that at FFF, when we turn the gymnasium at Hillsboro High School into a mini-mall of sorts.
Participating boutiques include Gus Mayer, e. Allen, Kendal Boutique, The Trunk, Blue Bohemian, AshBlue, and e-tailers like Thompson Fifteen, Fringe & Lace and Gilded Ice. There will be dressing room areas on hand, but if you've always wanted to get naked in the HHS gym, well, this may be your chance. Admission is $5, and you can get your ticket here or pay at the door tomorrow. A portion of the proceeds will benefit Hands on Nashville.
I already have my eye on a few gorgeous bags from e. Allen, which I gushed about with my friend Meryll on Talk of the Town earlier this week. That fabulous dress is from e. Allen (which is why there is a price tag dangling from my back), and the earrings are from Gilded Ice. All of these items will be available at the event tomorrow. (PS, if you watch this, don't laugh. I have zero television experience and am fully aware of the fact that I used the word "absolutely" at least 17 times in this clip.)
I also have my eye on some incredibly discounted clothing from Gus Mayer, and if you wear the same size that I do and get in my way, it's not going to be pretty. Game on, ladies. May the fastest shopper win!!!
