Donning a mask was all the rage at historical fêtes with a name like the Bal Des Ardents – the Burning Men’s Ball, where tea is consumed with the pinkie-up. Getting ready for these Masquerade Balls can take some time and effort, especially when helping on a forty-pound all-feather disguise over puffy sleeves and wired corsets.
Relive all the fun of this ancient tradition without any fuss at Azzaria Boutique’s Holiday Masquerade event, on Saturday, December 11th from 6 – 9pm at the North Courtyard of the Cardiff Towne Center.
Celebrity-stylists and owners Tammy Neihart and Az Hakim welcome fierce fashionistas to plenty of shopping, food, music, models and mystery where part of the proceeds are donated towards the Jenesse Center – a très chic way to help victims of domestic violent during the holiday season. There will be a free gift with purchase, and masquerade masks for play and perks that will have vouchers for a mystery gift or a discount tucked inside.
Azzaria will also feature signature cocktails, wine, and beer to DJ Nate spinning while you shimmy to your own Romeo or Juliet. The 1,200 square foot space offers an outdoor plaza mimicking Verona’s own town quarter except in San Diego’s cool beach breeze sans assassination attempts. Azzaria Boutique showcases trendy looks from hard-to-find designers such as Bread and Butter, Diane Von Furstenberg, and Free People, and for denim connoisseurs, a range from 7 for all Mankind, Joe’s for Men, Hudson, and William Rast abounds within the adjacent Denim Lounge.
Azzaria’s Holiday Masquerade is the ultimate avante-garde shopping event for the fashion-forward San Diego elite. Pick up a new holiday outfit for yourself, shop for loved ones, win a prize or two, and enjoy live DJ beats and lush spirits while you mingle beneath lavish chandeliers just steps from the ocean. For more information, please call 760.944.2992 or visit Azzaria Boutique in Cardiff.
