Boutiques Give Back & Spring2ACTion

Today is Alexandria’s charity day and there are two wonderful ways to give back to the community.  The Old Town Boutique District has paired their Boutiques Give Back Day with Alexandria’s Spring2Action.  Here’s how it works:

Boutiques Give Back – Shop local boutiques and they will give a percent of your purchase back to the charity or school of your choice! Many of our shops are participating.  To see a full list click here.

Spring2ACTion - is a 24-hour online event that encourages everyone to contribute to Alexandria’s nonprofit organizations through a single online giving platform. Last year, Spring2ACTion raised nearly $660,000 in one day, benefitting 97 local nonprofit organizations. This year, the goal is raise $1,000,000 for more than 100 nonprofits. You can give online here.

So, get out and do all your shopping today! It’s such a great opportunity to support the charities and organizations you love.


For the Bride

Last month we showed you a preview of the Periwinkle Bridal shoot.  Well, the bridal catalog launched last week and it is absolutely stunning.  For any bride in the area, this catalog is full of inspiration and leaves no detail unturned.  It’s definitely worth flipping through to see the gorgeous looks not only from Periwinkle, but from Mystique Jewelers, Ruth Barzel Jewelry Design, DC Taste and Free Spirit Floral.

The catalog showcases an ivory lace gown and bridesmaids looks from designer Yoana Baraschi.


Mystique Jewelers accessorizes the bride in four different jewelry looks – complete with a killer engagement ring.  Ruth Barzel Jewelry Designs shows her handmade creations on the bridesmaids, flower girl and mother of the bride.


The bridal bouquet, bridesmaids’ bouquets, corsages and reception centerpiece were made by Free Spirit Floral.  Just take a look for yourself at how breathtaking each arrangement is.  And, you can’t forget about food on the big day! Catering for the reception was provided by DC Taste who crafted an elegant tablescape of celebration food.
