Cynthia Rowley's feminine frocks are highly covetable, and last night, we got to shop those pieces at her Damen boutique in an intimate setting. Cynthia Rowley partnered with Sassy City Chicks to offer the a private shopping invitation with prosecco and pastries as a prelude to today's shopping party at Venue One where you scan shop discounted apparel & accessories, and cash in on free spa treatments. We peeped some amazing wares from printed blazers and silk dresses to the newest take on haute beachwear: neoprene.
Cynthia Rowley's spring/summer pieces showed us that neoprene can be worn out of the water. There were printed neoprene dresses, capris, skirts and long sleeve tops (think wet suit) that would take you from day to night. And get this: the neoprene adjusts to your body temp so that you can even wear the clothing out in 95º weather. The fabric would cool you down. Yeah, we thought it was pretty ingenious too. At tonight's event, should have a chance to win fabulous prizes too, happening from 5-10PM. The shopping event actually costs $10, but if you go here, you can enter code RACKED for free admission.
