All week we've been hitting the phones and manning the doors of Grazia HQ to collect, sort and price the donations you've been giving to pop up charity with Mary Portas in The Village at Westfield. And it's going to be AMAZING! Everyone from Meg Matthews to Jools Oliver (judging by her lace Miu Miu dress she's super tall!) and Grazia's Editor In Chief Jane Bruton have been emptying their wardrobes to donate designer goodies to Mary's Living and Giving Shop. (In fact, Jane's been so enthusiastic at donating she's a bit worried she'll have nothing to wear this weekend!). Our lovely friends at Matches have just sent us a velvet Lanvin dress which we're desperate to take home - but won't. Brix Smith-Start has given us this amazing bright orange Phillip Lim dress. Savannah Miller's donated a Twenty8Twelve leather jacket and there's the most eye-poppingly gorgeous pair of Yves Saint Laurent shoes we've ever seen from Harvey Nichol's Averyl Oates. It's going to be the most fashionable charity shop EVER! So put next Thursday 4 June in your diary, ladies and head down to Mary's Living and Giving shop to get some serious bargains.
BUT please remember WE NEED YOUR DONATIONS TOO! An old sundress from Topshop you never wear any more, those Sass & Bide skinny jeans that just don't fit you any more or a River Island bag you used for a season but are bored with now. As long as it's in good condition and could re-sell for a fiver, we want it in our shop. Get the low-down on how to donate right here. And please clear out your closets this weekend. All the money raised goes to Save The Children, Trees for Cities and MIND. It's shopping neutral!
