Meet a local 4-Her: Bella Reeser, skilled clothing shopper

My name is Bella Reeser, and I’m a member of the Melvern Jr. Highline 4-H Club.  This is my first year in 4-H and my first year in clothing buymanship.  Last fall when my mom was helping me chose my projects she asked me if I would like to enroll in clothing buymanship, she told me the primary objective was to pick out an outfit for the best deal. That meant I got to go shopping! I started jumping up and down and told her to sign me up!

When deciding what kind of outfit I would like, I picked swimwear. I love the pool, and I love swimsuits, so what could be a better fit for me. We bought the whole outfit at Wal-Mart, for under $30.

The towel is made of 100 percent cotton and is to be machine washed cold, and tumble dry on low; I can use this towel for many years to come. The swimsuit is 84 percent polyester and 16 percent spandex and is to be machine washed cold, and tumble dry on low; my mom says that I should be able to wear it for a couple of years. The cover-up is 80 percent cotton and 20 percent polyester and is to be machine washed cold, and tumble dry on low; this was a great purchase because in buying it in color white, I can wear it with any of my other suits.

I took this project to all three Osage County Fairs and received a purple at all of them.  I also modeled it for the Osage County Style Revue and received a purple there as well.  I am so excited for the fairs to be over, so I can start wearing my new pool outfit!
