Feather Boas are so much FUN

We all know just how much fun a ‘Feather Boa’ can be at a party. But did you know that Feather Boas have been documented for use as an accessory since the 1820’s. In fact some historians believe that they go back as early as the 17th century. Over time Feather Boas have fallen in and out of fashion many times over the years. But when it comes to little girls dressing-up and playing-house, you can be sure that a Feather Boa is a staple in any ‘Tickle Trunk’.:)

Rosie Bitts is an entertainer and a Burlesque Diva on Vancouver Island, BC where she teaches women how to wield a Feather Boa. This is a learned skill and a lot of fun, and Rosie will be showing us how to do it the right way, at the *Frump to FABULOUS* MakeOver fundraising event on September 12th, 2018.

This is an evening of celebration where two women where selected from the *Frump to FABULOUS* makeover contest that was held  in April. This journey consisted of these women having to commit to spending time with one of our experts on a monthly basis, learning new tools to help them overcome obstacles that were holding them back.  As a Fashion Designer, I educated them on knowing what their body type was and which clothing styles best suited their body type and their lifestyle. After finding out their skin tone and which colours reflected best on their skin, we went shopping and learned how to ‘build a wardrobe’. This is where you select quality clothing pieces that have mileage, and can be mixed and matched with other pieces so that your look is always polished and professional.

Over this five month period, these women met with a Hair Stylist, Make-Up Artist, Fitness Trainer and a registered Dietician and these experts taught them how they could make little changes in their life that would have a profound impact on them. Once you have travelled down that road you become a different person because you learn a lot about yourself along the way. Most of it is just habits that we as women have had most of our lives. But that can be changed if the mind is willing.

As women we all know that life just gets so busy that we forget to take good care of ourselves. We seem to be taking care of everybody else in our lives and we fall to the bottom of ranks. But when you have help from the experts and a team coaching you along the way, it makes it so much easier.

So come and join us and celebrate not only the success of these two women, but to embrace the many gifts that you already are blessed with.

Tickets are available here and all the proceeds go to *Victoria Women’s Transition House* helping women who are fleeing abuse.
