While the Dwell with Dignity crowd partying at Embree & Lake Antiques‘ “Fall In Love All Over Again…” at the Slocum Street store, the Heroes For Children 10th Anniversary celebrants were literally kicking off their shoes at Highland Park Village’s Jimmy Choo.
It was all for Heroes for Children with a portion of sales going to the 10-year-old group.
Jennifer and Doug Houser were a couple of first guests to arrive at Jimmy Choo and do a test run of the footwear finery. Within a couple of seconds, Jennifer had focused on a pair of black-and-white stilettos that met with both Houser approvals. No sooner were the shoes marked “Sold!” than the shoes and Housers were gone.
But they were soon replaced by a slew of other Heroes For Children supporters, who tried on everything from sea-designed flats to jewel-laden heels.
As one Jimmy Choo staffer sat on a chair chewing gum and checking her smartphone, guests gathered in the room facing the HP Village Theater. The talk of the night ranged from Kim Bannister’s heading to a volley ball game to concerns about measles and shingles. Ouch!
Co-Chair Jennifer Dix was catching second looks for the bracelet and matching earrings that husband Richard purchased for his wife to wear to this past Crystal Charity Ball…”Fella” Co-Chair Skye Brewer has been juggling the commute between Big D and the Big Apple… Andrea Weber arrived with baby Nicolette Weber in one arm and a Louis Vuitton on the other.
Others in the crowd like Cindy Stager and Missy Kennedy were checking out the “choo-sie” items with the idea of wearing them to the March 28th fundraiser at the Hilton Anatole. Unlike years past, this one is going to a seated dinner with “surprise entertainment as featured on “Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.” That means to gents can join the festivities.
