When you think of sports, specifically football, I bet fashion is the last thing that comes to your mind. But did you know that you can combine the two together - sounds bizarre? But In Love With Fashion has just made that possible as they are holding a charity football match in support of The Prince's Trust and the Arsenal Foundation! I love it when big brands lend a helping hand and work with the wider community.
Come down to the Finchley Wingate Stadium on the 29th of September and see In Love With Fashion's celebrity team (Jermain Defoe, Calum Best, Laurie Duncan and other gorgeous men) take on The Arsenal Legend's team! There will also be mini matches involving local schools as well as London based dance troops and cheerleaders so it'll be a day packed with action.
The best part?
All proceeds go to The Prince's Trust that helps disadvantaged young people (13 to 30 year olds) that are either unemployed, struggling at school or at risk of exclusion to get their lives back on track. Currently, 3 out of 4 young people supported by The Trust move into work, education or training!
But the fun doesn't stop there. In Love With Fashion is very kindly giving bloggers the chance to win 3 pairs of VIP tickets to the event, after party and £100 of in-store credit - what's not to love?
My pick would be something stylish but simple. I would make the Red Chiffon Yoke Playsuit the center piece as it is close to the Love Charity Match Colour - pink! To edge it up, make it comfortable to walk in and to make it football match appropriate, I would wear the Black Canvas Lace Up Boots. In case the weather is chilly, I will bring along the gorgeous Floral Bomber Jacket and perhaps wear some tights underneath! All fromIn Love With Fashion (:
So if you're looking for something to do over the weekend, show your support and grab your best mate or your football loving friend for a day of fun, football and fundraising - all for a good cause!
My boyfriend's a HUGE Arsenal supporter and although I'm not that big a football fanatic as he is (although I am forced to learn the names of every player), you can bet I'll be there ;)
Oh and, did I mention that the tickets range from just £5 to £10 - bargain!
