When everyone thinks back to a troubling time in their lives, almost everyone reverts back to a childhood trauma. Though we grow up and realize many of our worries and insecurities were mundane, many children throughout the country aren't as fortunate. With so much responsibility placed on today's youth, one thing they should never face is fear-- an aspect of too many children's lives that the MSPCC (Massachusetts Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children) aims to erase.
On Thursday June 24th, the MSPCC hosted a charitable fashion show to raise money for their cause at District Lounge. Local community personalities, models, and boutiques partnered together to put together Eye Candy, a fashion sweet tooth event aimed at replicating the feeling felt by many of us fashionistas as we stroll through the cobblestone streets of our city in search of new wardrobe additions. This "sugar rush" sensation was translated into several perfectly scrumptious categories such as cotton candy, candy cane, blue peppermint, and licorice. Boutiques such as Beacon Hill's Holiday, Sara Campbell, Crush, and Newton Center's Donna + Erica lent some of the seasons hottest pieces which fit the tasty criteria.
Some of the evenings highlights included fun, easy to wear dresses as well as cutting edge pieces. A few of the evenings 42 fabulous looks included:
A pink party dress as well as a white frock with bow and pocket detail.
Donna + Erica
Denim knee length shorts with suspenders, a blue tie dye top worn as a racy dress, and tribal harem pants.
A mint green ruffle dress tube dress.
Guests cheered at each look as the models mixed up couture poses with smiles, dance moves, and twirls. Fashions were seen, money was raised, and pules were pumping. In the event you missed the Eye Candy show, please check out the MSPCC's website for upcoming events and to learn how you can improve the lives of children in need.
