Hi, everyone! Having been a fashion mainstay in New York City for over 50 years, we at Off Broadway Boutique have weathered ever-changing trends for just as long. As a result, stylish women have chosen our shop as the place to snag exclusive fashions like our sophisticated string top. Lynn Dell’s fashionable cousin, Ilene, looked positively smashing in hers at the Roaring 20’s garden party that she’d attended at the Fiddletop Estate in the Berkshires a few weekends ago:
Bidwell House Museum Throws a Party That’s The Cat’s Pajamas
Amy Krzanik reports from Monterey.
All the dapper dons and dolled-up dames were at the Bidwell House Museum’s 1920s garden party on Saturday, August 3, at Bill Brockman’s “Fiddletop” Estate. Music from the Jazz Age filled the ears of all the guys and dolls in attendance, as the East Egg Trio featuring Skip Parsons performed under the tent. Volunteers went all-out providing a grand selection of delectable hors d’oeuvres, fabulous flower arrangements, and Roaring Twenties-themed refreshments. (A homemade martini called The Bee’s Knees, anyone?) State Representative Smitty Pignatelli presented Bill Brockman with an official citation from the Massachusetts State Senate for his work in helping to preserve an important part of local and national history, and the night’s emcee Chapin Fish and gallerist Charles Flint led an auction featuring artwork, jewelry, and dinner and conversation with celebrated author Simon Winchester. All proceeds go to support the historic 1750s homestead, its education programs, and its upkeep.

Perfectly capturing the essence of the Jazz Age music that was performed by the East Egg Trio band, Cousin Ilene’s white string top swayed to the rhythm that she’d danced to. With champagne flowing and plenty of delicious goodies, it sounded like such a fabulous affair and a fantastic occasion to wear our exclusive piece. In turn, we at Off Broadway Boutique think that it’s safe to say that the Countess of Glamour’s cousin was the best-dressed dame at the party!
