treesBoston’s annual Party in the Park was held last week to benefit the Justine Mee Liff Fund and the theme this year was “The Fascinator”. Since 2005, this party has been taking place in the Emerald Necklace, one of the many greeneries throughout Boston, which the fund helps maintain and restore. 700 of Boston’s most beautifully dressed women and a handful of gentlemen came out to celebrate and raise money for the parks.

Thankfully, we were graced with sunny, beautiful weather for the first time in a few years and raised approximately one million dollars, a great gift for the city of Boston. This money will  work nicely alongside the 4.1 million dollars committed by Mayor Marty Walsh at the event on behalf of the city. Hats off to the guests and to Boston for helping to take care of our parks!

Bristol BarTo celebrate the re-opening of The Bristol Bar, Daniela Corte partnered with Boston Common Magazine, Winston Flowers and The Four Seasons to launch the new space. We feted the night with Wagyu Beef meatballs, Tatinger Champagne, and the biggest shrimp cocktail I’ve ever seen (equally delicious).

The space was transformed into a sexily lit club-like atmosphere, as music pumped loudly to welcome the guests. Not tame the Bristol Bar of late, that’s for sure! A wall of roses adorned the back wall as 5 models stood atop podiums modeling Daniela Corte’s newest collection.

The designer herself looked gorgeous in a lace coverup over neon orange by her own label. This look reminded me of Herve Leger, or some kind of nod to bondage. This was an interesting prelude to my movie outing afterwards…

bristol1My favorite look was this swing top with lace pencil skirt on model Erica Almeida.
bristol2Another one of my favorites, this two piece bandage dress.

I wish I could have stayed until the bikini finale, and heard that it caused quite a stir and many onlookers from the windows on Boylston St with zero degree weather outside, but alas, I had to run to a “Ladies Only” 50 Shades of Grey movie screening hosted by Linda Henry and Sue Brady Hartigan at the Super Luxe Theater in Chestnut Hill. I wore my pearls as bondage accessories to stay in with the theme! (Though I wish I could share those moments with you, I cannot disclose the participants…private screening=private pictures)
