wicked stylish in boston

Posted by susan on August 3rd, 2010. Filed under: boston travel, stylish travel.

Last week I had the loveliest birthday celebration. My friend Bryce just opened an Etsy shop – Extension by b. mattie – and before she could launch officially of course, she had to hire some models to show off her stuff.

Lisa and I happily accepted the job.

From stylish aprons and festive headbands to knitted hats and retro shoe bags perfect for travel, we tried on every piece in her shop. I can’t help but think it was a vain way to spend an evening, but in the end we were part of the launch of something meaningful, something that will help our friend’s creativity and desire to well, create, flourish. And there’s nothing vain about that.

[The following ten photos were taken by Bryce Mattie with her very sharp camera. As you’ll see, in addition to being crafty enough to create beautiful clothing and accessories, Bryce is also a great photographer.]

The pay for modeling was delicious. Following the shoot, we had a glass of birthday champagne and homemade blueberry cake – a recipe that Bryce got while traveling to Nova Scotia.

And then we watched the sunset – and had one of those moments that make you realize just how great it is to be a Bostonian.
