Posted 4/25/13 – More than six dozen women turned out for the 44th Sierra Madre Woman’s Club Fashion Show Luncheon, themed “Sailing into Spring”. Eight models, from teens to seniors, strutted their stuff at Essick House, the Woman’s Club’s historic Clubhouse. The clothes, jewelry, handbags and accessories were all provided by Arcadia’s Magnolia Boutique, with owner Karen Crisci acting as mistress of ceremonies and describing each of the outfits for the crowd, while Eunis Banis played piano in the background.
Woman’s Club president Mary Carney welcomed everyone and Liz Levine offered an invocation before event chair Melissa Stute introduced Ms. Crisci and the show got underway. For more than an hour, nine models showed off the fashions to the oohs and ahs of the ladies of the Club. Once the show was done, everyone enjoyed a delicious lunch of chicken breast with a lemon sauce and capers served over rice, caesar salad, and a roll. Hot peach cobbler with ice cream finished off the meal.
Following lunch, drawings were held to determine the lucky winners of the centerpiece door prizes, each of which were created by Sara Menjivar and featured live fish. In addition, numerous opportunity drawings of prizes from local merchants were given away, but the ladies seemed most excited about the $50 money hat.
