Part of living like a VIP means having a good selection of hot outfits. They don’t have to be expensive, they just have to be bang on trend. And another part is supporting charity because when you have a good life it’s only fair to give something back. So we were really excited to hear about Breakthrough Breast Cancer’s latest campaign, where they’ve partnered with a selection of high street retailers to make clothes that not only look amazing but will ensure that a donation is made to the charity when you buy them.
When this campaign first started years ago it was all about the t-shirt but now there are jeans, dresses, shorts and even trainers. Live Like a VIP’s Jabeen and I had a chance to look at the range at a party in London’s St Pancras Renaissance hotel. Later on in this blog post, I pick my three top fave outfits, which I hope you love as much as I do, but here is a quick picture to show how broad the range is. There’s something for everyone so no matter what your style is you can Wear Your Support!
Fashion Targets Breast Cancer has lots of celebrity ambassadors so if you buy any of these clothes you can rest assured you’re following in the footsteps of the most stylish stars. Names include the gorgeous Emeli Sande, Jessica Ennis Hill, Laura Bailey, and Lilah Parsons. Rosie Fortescue is an ambassador and she was at the party with former Made in Chelsea co-star Millie Mackintosh. I also saw hot British model Suki Waterhouse, who was loving oohing and aahing over the designs.
There was a chance to get a blowdry or other hair dos, a manicure station and lots of make-up artists ready to touch up party goers faces. But the music was the best bit – it’s always nice to have a soundtrack at a party, isn’t it?
So let’s get into the clothes! Here are my personal top 3 items. They can all be purchased through the Fashion Targets Breast Cancer online shop
Skinny Jeans – £29.90 (including £8.80 donation)
Shorts and Top Set.
Top £30 (inc £9 donation)
Shorts £32 (including £9.60 donation)
Pink Vest Top – £20 (inc a £6 donation)
PS The St Pancras Hotel is an amazing venue for a party. It was where the Spice Girls recorded their music video for Wannabe so after looking at the clothes Jabeen and I had a Spice Girls moment. I am Scary and she is Posh, obvs!
There is also a terrace where you can sit outside and watch the Kings Cross traffic pass by as you feel utterly calm looking out over it all. Seeing the station in the distance and the red bricks conjured up an image in my mind of Harry Potter’s Hogwarts. Except I had prosecco to make it even more enjoyable.
