Fashion/Style/Bridal event

Sunday, April 25th, 2010 - 2-6pm
Sponsored & hosted by: TRUST
249 Arch Street
Philadelphia, PA 19106

Soirée in the City is Philadelphia’s Premier Bridal & Style Event. Philadelphia brides, wedding and party planners, fashionistas and event planners rejoice: On Sunday, April 25th [2-6pm] Soirée in the City will feature the best in beauty, fashion, event décor and style at Trust, the most beautiful gallery & event space in Old City.

Bringing together the best of the industry, Soirée in the City will host a roster of high-end
vendors—from photographers and fashion designers to catering and gifts—all in one place. The
goal is to make preparation for the big day as seamless as possible, while at the same time helping to craft individual events that will be exceptional standouts for years to come.

“Soirée in the City was created as an alternative to the traditional bridal show. The emphasis of
this event is fashion elegance and style—everything that contributes to the overall look and
atmosphere of a celebration,” says Soirée founder organizer, Laura Eaton.

Attendees will be treated to complimentary cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and desserts. The event is complete with a goodie bag and visit to the decadent Beauty Lounge, staffed by Béke Beau makeup artist and Tierra Mia Organic Nail Spa, all included with admission.

“This event isn’t just for brides,” continues Eaton. “Fashion, beauty and other creative vendors
round out Soirée in the City, making it accessible to anyone planning a party or looking for stylish
event options.”

Tickets are $15. To purchase tickets and view a complete list of participants, visit

Dovetail Artisans

Dovetail artisans is a gift shop/ gallery carrying primarily items handmade in North America. As my new motto is "Buy local, Buy Handmade." It is my new favorite stop for all kinds of baby and wedding gifts ('tis the season) or just shopping for a special item for myself. It has been a gift shop for many years, but was recently sold to Elayne Aion who renamed and remodeled the store with a great new look and new merchandise. I will be bringing my whole collection of jewelry out to Glenside for first friday May 7th from 6-8:30. See the website: for directions and more info.

Layne Design's spring poetry series of pendants and earrings are now available at Dovetail:
