Accessorizing Benefit v.13

Three Sirens Boutique in Old City.

With one more weekend left to go before Young Professionals Preview Night on February 14, and Benefit v.13 on February 15, you might find yourself panicking over what to wear. But with the crowds sporting anything from ripped jeans to black tie, there’s much more emphasis on ‘dress to express’ than ‘dress to impress.’

So while you’re busy complimenting your inner Oscar Wilde with the right pair of shoes, don’t forget to express your love for Philadelphia by snagging a few accessories at local boutiques:

Located in Old City, Three Sirens Boutique specializes in contemporary women’s fashion and accessories. Pick up a cocktail dress this Saturday, and then swing by the Benefit for your chance to bid on a $50 gift certificate, with a starting bid of $20.

Fran Lightman Gibson a Philadelphia painter working primarily with oil on canvas.
I attribute the source of my artistic inspiration to my love, fear, and awe of nature as it both represents and defines the tension and optimism of life. My “Take Any Road Series” encourages the viewer to have the confidence to experience life no matter how difficult or confusing, beautiful, or powerful. All of this exists with an underlying structure of assumptions.
I think we all see the world a little differently and feel our own experience uniquely.  I paint using what all of my senses have given to me as the experience.  When I paint the sky, I am feeling the wind, putting it to music in my head, remembering the smell of the chance of rain, tasting the air, seeing the clouds dance.
