Boston interior designer, stylist, and blogger Erin Gates of Elements of Style is hosting a shopping party next week at Cynthia Rowley on Newbury Street. Unfortunately I’ll be out of town (well, not so unfortunate, I’ll be in NYC) but if you’re interested in attending, let Erin know. You’ll get 20 percent off your purchases that evening. There are some great fall looks. I’m especially loving the prints and fringe.
Marc’s quaint but rockin’ shop in the not-so-sleepy-anymore West End is expanding. According to WWD, the shingled spot will upgrade from 500 square feet to 2,300. Happy news in a town where fashion means flowing caftans for artsy ladies and Speedos and muscle tees for hunky gay guys. The shop is always packed, with tourists and locals scooping up totes, tops, and all that other fun marc by marc stuff. The boutique re-opens for the season with a (private?) celebration this Sunday. Which leads to more news . . .
Robert Duffy and
The brains behind the brand, Robert Duffy, is marrying his sweetheart, Alex Cespedes, in Ptown on Tuesday. Not only is it actually legal, but Duffy feels a kinship with the town, having summered there during his childhood. Marc will be the best man, and the guest list is small – just 86. The ceremony will be held out and performed by a Unitarian minister. The cake will be chocolate and the grooms will wear black suits by Armani. Just kidding.
I’m hunting for more details from my Ptown sources . . . will let you know if they pull through!
