The Shelf was delighted when our invitations to our favourite charity’s Annual Skimpy Clothes Exhibition arrived – Dress Code – minimal – and after weeks of anticipation we finally joined the tanned and toned at this splendid charity event.
Charity Swimwear Show
No not tatty second hand clothes picked up from high street charity shops – but glamourous haute couture of sizzling swimwear.
Fundraising has never been so much fun
In these days of global awareness charities are thinking of more and more creative ways to raise money that don’t compromise their own objectives. Many high profile organisations are quite right to disassociate themselves with professional fundraising events that serve to profit from fundraisers who are looking to be funded by the sponsorship money they collect to take part in some jolly event that takes their fancy. For example it wouldn’t look too good for a charity that is working to help those suffering the effects of climate change and global warming to have fundraisers stamp a massive carbon footprint by arranging a day flying a plane to perform a ‘charity’ parachute jump.
Swimwear fashion show
In this instance the theme of global warming was highlighted by the need for swimwear and sun protection as the temperatures rise.
Laughter a plenty when the opening model was a Borat look-a-likey sporting a eye-wateringly tight mankini followed by Bruno in lemon shorts and a knotted handkerchief – high camp beside the seaside.
Then followed the professional models demonstrating the latest swimwear designs – and golly they were stunning – like sitting in on a live Sports Illustrated Swimsuit video shoot.
The second half of the show was an opportuunity to showcase even mor revealing swimming costumes and beach style sexy lingerie – by the time the curtain drew the event to a closr the assembled audience were in rapture.
We at the Shelf are now considering switching our following of the mighty spurs and football to an all together more pleasing sport – beach volleyball.
