The little black dress can do a whole lot more than just hang in the closet, ready for work or play. That said, tomorrow night's "Little Black Dress" event will help local women dress for success by supporting the local St. John's Shelter with an attire facelift, if you will, for the organization's "Depot Boutique."
Tuesday's event - from 6 to 8:30 p.m. at Arden Hills Country Club & Spa - is the first of three phases to help women at the shelter, which focuses on homeless women with children in crisis. They need clothing, furniture and other essentials as they transition back to real life, which often includes a job interview.
That's why the Little Black Dress event asks attendees to bring a piece of contemporary, professional clothing to donate to the boutique.
The fashion show will feature clothing from Article Clothing Boutique and Salon, plus makeover tips from Hollywood artist Jeff Jarwin and wardrobe consults by "Presenting You" owner Stephanie Cumberland of Sacramento.
"Swag" bags? But of course. Tickets are $20 with a clothing donation and $35 without. For more information: click here.
Arden Hills Country Club & Spa is at 1220 Ardens Hills Lane in Sacramento.
