So, we ducked out of work a few minutes early the other day. But a night of shopping and cocktails awaited on Boston’s Newbury Street! And it was all for a fantastic cause.
At Alex and Ani, the brand behind those charm-adorned bangles (the ones that celebs love to wear in piles), we got caught up on the latest iterations of this beloved wrist candy, tried on at least 10 different frocks from Christina K. Pierce‘s portfolio of up-and-coming designers, sipped on cocktails, and tucked more than one of Crema Cafe‘s brownies into our purses for the Uber ride home. Best of all? 15% of the night’s proceeds went to Boston-based Rosie’s Place.
Established in 1974 as an emergency shelter for women who aren’t able to get into, or simply don’t feel safe at, co-ed shelters, Rosie’s Place provides women with meals, an on-site grocery center, short-term housing, literacy and arts programs, and more to get them back on their feet. While our night was a total blast (and our bracelet lineup certainly benefitted from it), an opportunity to support this life-changing organization made it just that much more amazing.
