With so many bona fide cupcakeries in this city, it’s maybe necessary to note that Cupcake Boutique is not one of them. But that’s not to say that these ladies don’t have what you’re looking for. The super fly dress shop is overflowing with some of the freshest and spiciest fashion in town. And on Wednesday they’re throwing the doors wide open for a kick-off party benefiting Suited to Succeed—an organization that helps women to dress for achievement in the workplace. Show up for the event and they’ll help you achieve dressing well for any occasion, all while sipping on some bubbly, helping yourself to a few sweet treats, and hob-nobbing with some of the Baltimore Fashion Alliance glitterati.
Suited to Succeed clothes approximately 200 women a month. The local nonprofit works free of charge, providing clothing and workshops to women transitioning from welfare, crisis or underemployment to work; empowering women to improve their lives and the lives of their families. The event at Cupcake Shop centers around a trunk show from Black Halo—famous for some seriously sassy lines. Cupcake Shop promises a dizzying array of Jackie O’s, satin cocktail dresses, and Black Halo Eve ball gowns—and that’s just the beginning. And since they’re working to help Suited for Success, you can pitch in by bringing a gently used suit or work appropriate dress to donate to the cause. Do so and you’ll get 15% off anything from the new Spring 2014 collections.
Cupcake Boutique is located at 813 South Broadway in Baltimore. The event takes place Wednesday March 5th from 6:30pm – 8:00pm. For more information, visit www.cupcake-shop.com.
