Couture for a Cause
Houston is known for their beautiful, well dressed community. In fact, most of the society pages quote who we are wearing when out and about town. What to do when seasons change and you don’t want to be caught wearing the same outfit twice? Donate it to “Couture for a Cause”!
They’ve knocked on doors around town and some of the best dressed ladies and gentlemen have opened their closets for them to pick from. New and gently used designer label clothing, shoes, handbags and accessories have been donated and are heading to West Ave’s corner boutique – Sam & Lilli.
For one day only, these great items will be offered for sale, first come, first serve. Each item will be priced at a fraction of what it would have cost in the stores. So bring your cash, your credit cards, your checkbooks… the sale starts at 10am till 4pm on Saturday August 24th, 2013.!
