Inaugural Houston Boutique Week Offers Local Benefits

(Last Updated On: May 2, 2016)

Excited about the fall but dread shopping in department stores or the mall?  Well, now it is time to try something different.  Head over to your favorite boutiques and shop with a purpose during Houston Boutique Week.  The inaugural week kicks off on Nov. 9 and concludes with a fashion show on Nov. 13, 2015.

Throughout the week, various boutiques in Rice Village, the Upper Kirby and Vintage Park areas will feature live make-up demos, fashion tips, male-styling experts, mini makeovers, music and much more.  While you shop from boutique to boutique, make sure that you bring an item to donate to Dress for Success Houston as they have teamed up with Houston Boutique Week to help those in need.  Donations will allow low-income women to choose clothing and accessories that will help jump start their careers when they interview for potential jobs.  Dress for Success Houston will accept hosiery, gently-worn, closed toe/professional women’s shoes and black handbags.  Each boutique will offer special discounts to those who donate to Dress for Success Houston.

To end Houston Boutique Week, a full fashion show will take place at Giulietta Sociale on Friday, Nov. 13, at 7.p.m.  Participating boutiques will showcase fall wear for those who have purchased a ticket to the show.  Tickets to the fashion show are on sale for $10. Make sure that you register online for each day that you plan to visit a boutique.
