Boutique Crawlin'

Last night was Fashion Week of Rochester's March Madness Boutique Crawl.  For $20, you got chauffeured around for five hours as you shopped the best boutiques in Rochester, where you were treated to fabulous sales, complimentary cocktails, hors d-hourves, and freebies all to benefit The Center for Youth.  I can't think of a better way to spend a Thursday night... can you?

Here's the nitty gritty on my evening...

What I wore:

Can you believe my whole outfit (minus the shoes) is from JC Penney?!
They are really stepping it up.  Love!  (And so affordable!)

Who I went with:
What a fantastic group of women!  We had THE best time!
And aside from me, none of these girls knew each other when the night started.
Nothing like bonding over shopping and champagne!

What I bought:

Necklace from Red Tiger Boutique in Pittsford
Shoes, Necklace, and Earrings from Shop Peppermint 
My inner geek couldn't resist the map print on those ballet flats!
MM Couture Dress from Dado
What I wish I bought:
Abigail Riggs ~ Miss Annie bag in Mud
This bag is made from the softest, to-die-for, leather and suede and features an authentic turquoise pendant.
You would think Gail designed it just for me...
With the beautiful, talented, and philanthropic Gail Riggs, Ph.D.
Founder and CEO of Abigail Riggs
"A Purse with a Purpose."
Last night was a perfect reminder of why I do what I do:  promote local boutique owners, businesses, beauty personnel, and designers.  There is so much talent and beauty in this little city of ours and it's filled with so many wonderful and inspiring people.  Somebody needs to spread the word!  It might as well be me.  :)

Have a fantastic weekend Rochester!



* Expect more on Abigail Riggs in the near future.  I'm officially OBSESSED.  :)


  1. I like the boots you wore to the event. Still available or old staples in your closet?

    1. Still available! Got them at DSW this fall and LOVE them!

  2. What a fantastic experience I had at last nights Boutique Crawl. The energy at A Different Point of View on Monroe Ave was awesome! My soul is rejuvenated when I get to connect with other women traveling down similar but different paths. I got to catch up with local friends such as my daughters Dermatologist & her fellow business partner who happened to buy a Nancy Reagan Red small first lady series. I met new friends like Jenny Sanzo Rochester's Flower City Fashionista. Principle of her work/passion, wife & mother of two.... Jennifer Sanzo is the ultimate "Abigail Riggs Girl!"
    I came home so excited and ready to design a handbag & tackle any challenge.
    Thank you Rochester! -Gail Riggs

    1. So fantastic meeting you Gail! I'd love to be an "Abigail Riggs Girl" - loooove what you are doing: for women, for Rochester, for history. You rock! Let's connect soon. xoxo Jenny
