On Tuesday July 13th, 2010, Hollywood glamour hit the city of Atlanta in the name of charity for an intimate shopping affair at Atlanta’s most talked about new shoe boutique, B Chic Shoetique. Special guest supermodel Amber Rose flew in from Los Angeles to support her friend, owner of B Chic, Rashidah Ali, at the B Charitable, B Fashionable, B Chic charity shopping soiree benefiting local women’s organization My Sister’s Keeper.

As a part of her mission to empower and celebrate women, Rashidah hosted a unique charity event at her newly opened store, located in the swank Lindberg Vista retail area. Recognizing the hard work of women within the Atlanta community, Ali invited the who’s who of Atlanta to B Charitable, B Fashionable, B Chic.
Adorned in David Yurman jewels, Ali mixed and mingled with her notable guests while they shopped the store’s stylish footwear ranging from brands such as Giuseppe Zanotti and Casadei to Michael Kors and BCBG Generation. In an effort to support the women of Atlanta, 10% of the evening’s sales were donated to My Sister’s Keeper (MSK), a local organization dedicated to empowering a diverse community of women in Atlanta with the skills they need to improve their future. Guests sipped on signature cocktails created by Horne Rum, while food from Buckhead Bottle Bar – the posh Atlanta based restaurant and cocktail house – was passed for all to enjoy. Following the event at the store, Rashidah, Amber Rose, and their close friends headed over to Buckhead Bottle Bar to celebrate the successful evening.
