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.
