Woman’s Club Invites All to First ’19-’20 Meeting with Free Fall Fashion Show
September 9, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
A Fall Fashion Show kicks off the Wilton Woman’s Club new year on Monday, Sept. 9 at 10 a.m., at the WEPCO complex (48 New Canaan Rd.). The fashion show event is free for all Wilton women, current members, and those interested in learning more or joining the club.
Refreshments will be served, and there will be plenty of time to meet new friends and mingle with old.
Members of the Woman’s Club will be modeling the latest fall style featuring clothes from local boutiques ‘B’ Chic, Blue Star Bazaar, Open House, and Snappy Gator. On hand for hair touch-ups and makeup will be Janet Montalbano of Let’s Make Up Wilton. Attendees will be able to chat with Janet and other experts from the stores on the newest trends.
“At Blue Star Bazaar we try to balance current trends with comfortable, classic, flattering styles that always work,” says Megan Abrahamsen, owner of Blue Star Bazaar. “Some of the must-have trends and pieces for this fall include animal prints (from leopard to reptile); cozy, plush textures in pullovers and sweaters; long pleated skirts; and faux fur–from jackets to accessories.”
Open House has a different take on the season. “We are not tied to the current fashion trends. Instead, we shop the market looking for pieces we know our customers will love,” says the store’s Leslie Hueglin. “This season is all about comfort while still looking stylish. Basic bottoms paired with a new sweater or top will take you from the school pickup line to drinks with friends.”
‘B’ Chic owner Erica Malhotra, just celebrated 13 years in Wilton and the eighth year in a row her store was named “Best Jeans in Fairfield County,” so naturally she’s excited for fall and it officially being jeans season. “We carry styles that are effortlessly chic and comfortable. Big this season is the crop flare and the high-waist straight leg in a vintage wash–AKA the “Mom” jean. Boot-cut is back, and black-coated jeans are on-trend for evenings out.”
Snappy Gator has great looks from their fall season lineup, from casual to cocktail and a stylist to help with every detail.
During Monday’s meeting, the Woman’s Club executive board will also preview the 2019-20 social events, including a fall trip, holiday shopping night, holiday luncheon, a wine/chocolate event in February and a spring outing in May. All of this culminates in the club’s Annual Fashion Show Fundraiser in April. Last year’s Spring Fundraiser raised $28,000 for the Wilton Land Conservation Trust and their project, Save 183 Ridgefield Road.
Community Service chairs Suzy Curtice and Wendy Nadel will outline numerous ways club members can get involved. These include stocking the Wilton Social Services food pantry; serving seniors lunch at Ogden House; sorting donations at Person-to-Person Clothing Center in Darien; helping clients shop at the Person-to-Person food pantry in Norwalk; as well as preparing meals for delivery to homebound Wilton residents over the holidays.
Moms and daughters can also find opportunities to volunteer together through the Woman’s Club Junior Leadership Program, such as helping out with Minks to Sinks, and assembling and delivering Thanksgiving and Holiday meals to Wilton seniors.
Membership in the Wilton Woman’s Club offers many ways to give back to the community and help serve others in Wilton and the surrounding towns. For more information about the club’s activities and membership visit the Woman’s Club website.
