Female Factor focuses on fall fashions
Published 4:00 am Thursday, October 15, 2015
With the weather cooling down, fashion heats up. And Female Factor allowed Pike County women to get some fall fashion tips.
Brenda Campbell, part-time social science teacher at Troy University, gave the Female Factor participants a special treat Wednesday by showing them how to revamp their style with just a few simple tips and a reminder that accessories are a girl’s best friend.
“Go to your own closet to shop,” Campbell told the audience. As part of her presentation, Campbell brought members from the audience to the stage and added a few simple accessories to each of their outfits.
“All we’ve done is we’ve taken the basic shirt that she has in her closet and add accessories,” Campbell said. “It creates lots of different looks and lots of different outfits.”
Campbell created outfits for different occasions such as football games, parties or just going out on the town.
All the accessories used in the demonstration were available for purchase with all money going toward Lindsey’s Legacy Childhood Cancer Foundation. Donations are being accepted at each Female Factor meeting through November.
Jason Jones, owner of Jones Medical Supply and a long-time sponsor of Female Factor, gave a presentation about the upcoming WOD for Water on Nov. 21.
“We learned that nearly 700 million people don’t have access to clean water,” Jones said. “When we started (WOD for Water), that number was close to one billion.”
WOD for Water is a one-day workout that raises thousands of dollars to fund clean water wells in India through Neverthirst, a faith-based organization.
This year, the event will take place at 8 a.m. the Troy Parks and Recreation Center.
The goal for the 2015 WOD for Water is $75,000. Jones said that more than $110,000 has been raised in the past three years in Troy alone.

Female Factor, sponsored by Troy Regional Medical Center, among other local sponsors, holds a meeting the second Wednesday of each month at noon at The Studio in Downtown Troy.
