Wardrobe Stories Takes Us Down Memory Lane

Kelly Lynch reviews Dementia St Andrews’ first fashion show.

As a charity effort to increase dementia awareness and in a partnership with Dementia Friendly St Andrews and the University’s Dementia Friendly Society, Wardrobe Stories Vintage Fashion Show showcased various articles of clothing, donated by community members and businesses, along with the stories behind them. Held in Holy Trinity Church and with a ticket price of £3, this was not a typical charity fashion show seen by St Andrews.

A town and gown event, the show featured students, community members, and children from Greyfriars’ Primary School performing and modelling. The show began with Greyfriars’ Glee Choir singing “Let It Be” by the Beatles—a vintage song for a vintage show.

Following that, the first collection of the show was exhibited. Titled “Wardrobe Stories,” this collection consisted of about ten outfits and rather than the traditional walk to display the outfit, the model would step forward and an announcer would describe the piece, who owned the outfit, and where it was worn in the past. The remainder of the show consisted of more traditional walks for each collection. Clothing was donated by local families and businesses or collected from the models’ own closets.

This event was nothing like the stereotype that you think of when you hear about a fashion show in St Andrews. It had a very family friendly and community oriented focus: no alcohol in sight, the only refreshments served were tea, coffee, and vintage sweets provided by local businesses. The entire event focused on the charity they support and was certainly a breath of fresh air and a reminder of how far removed many St Andrews events are from the real world.

  12. I oversee a vape shop directory and we have had a posting from a vape shop in the USA that also offers CBD products. A Month later, PayPal has contacted use to claim that our account has been restricted and have asked us to get rid of PayPal as a payment method from our vape shop submission site. We do not offer for sale CBD items like CBD oil. We merely provide advertising and marketing services to CBD firms. I have looked into Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Reputable Health Retailer and if you take a good look, you will see that they sell a surprisingly substantial variety of CBD items, specifically CBD oil and they also happen to take PayPal as a settlement method. It emerges that PayPal is applying twos sets of rules to many different companies. Due to this stipulation, I can no longer accept PayPal on my CBD-related site. This has restrained my payment choices and now, I am seriously reliant on Cryptocurrency payments and direct bank transfers. I have spoken with a barrister from a Magic Circle law firm in The city of london and they said that what PayPal is undertaking is totally not legal and inequitable as it ought to be applying a consistent criterion to all companies. I am still to consult an additional attorney from a US law office in The city of london to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the United States. Meanwhile, I would be very appreciative if anybody here at targetdomain could provide me with alternative payment processors/merchants that work with CBD companies.

  15. I operate a vape store website directory and we have had a listing from a vape store in the USA that also offers for sale CBD products. A Month afterwards, PayPal has contacted use to say that our account has been limited and have asked us to take out PayPal as a payment solution from our vape store submission site. We do not offer for sale CBD goods such as CBD oil. We solely offer web marketing solutions to CBD companies. I have taken a look at Holland & Barrett– the UK’s Reputable Health and wellness Retail store and if you take a close peek, you will see that they offer for sale a surprisingly comprehensive stable of CBD items, specifically CBD oil and they also happen to take PayPal as a settlement solution. It emerges that PayPal is applying double standards to many different companies. Due to this limitation, I can no longer accept PayPal on my CBD-related site. This has restricted my payment options and presently, I am heavily contingent on Cryptocurrency payments and direct bank transfers. I have sought advice from a barrister from a Magic Circle law firm in London and they said that what PayPal is undertaking is completely not legal and discriminatory as it should be applying a consistent standard to all companies. I am yet to consult with yet another lawyer from a US law firm in The city of london to see what PayPal’s legal position is in the USA. For the time being, I would be extremely appreciative if anyone here at targetdomain could provide me with different payment processors/merchants that deal with CBD companies.

  22. Okay, so while you might be thinking that you want a big motorbike or a semi-automatic, you’re probably wrong. Just remember, you’re a complete noob right, so start off slow on an automatic with a max engine size of 125cc. Trust me, on your first few rides, your brain will be going into overdrive having to think about the traffic in front, mirrors, indicators and balancing a 100kg bike at the same time. As a beginner, you’ll feel much safer is you can firmly plant both your feet down when coming to a stop. So I recommend getting yourself to the rental shops and planting your ass firmly in a few scooter seats. Kick the stand up and see how you feel. I started with a Honda ZoomerX in Pai which has a low seat, fat tyres and a subtle acceleration. Great for beginners as it’s very forgiving. I then picked a Yamaha Mio, which was great to ride with a low seat, I’m 175cm, but I couldn’t get uses to having the beep right underneath the indicator. So I then switched to a Honda Click with a higher seat but I can still tippy-toe both feet without unintentionally beeping at each corner.

  23. A fascinating discussion is definitely worth comment. I think that you ought to publish more on this topic, it might not be a taboo matter but typically people don’t discuss such topics. To the next! Cheers!!
