ATL Fashionistas “Encounter” Some Charitable Shopping

29 12 2008

Most people tend to feel a certain way about thrifting, consignment shopping, etc. Some love it…some hate it. Well, yours truly absolutely enjoys it! I mean, there are the definite “watch outs” but for the most part, you end up with some great deals! I tend to enjoy it even more when the merchandise is amazing and my purchases benefit a worthy cause.

In Atlanta, a new upscale consignment boutique, A Clothes’ Encounter, recently celebrated its launch with a swanky affair complete with shopping, drinks, desserts (YES!), and sounds provided by DJ Sugarcut. A Clothes’ Encounter, the brainchild of actress Kaira Akita (Tyler Perry‘s A Family That Preys and Why Did I Get Married?), offers ladies gently worn designer and name brand clothing and accessories at discounted rates while sipping signature cocktails, listening to music, and socializing in Atlanta’s hottest locales.

At the recent launch event, A Clothes’ Encounter donated a portion of the proceeds to Dress for Success Atlanta and P.A.L.S. Atlanta, an organization that provides care and support to pets of Atlanta area residents living with HIV/AIDS, and other critical illnesses or disabilities. At the next event in Spring 2009, a different organization will be selected to benefit from the fashionable giving.
