    Will parking be available? I am coming in from the 'burbs.

    March 3, 2014

    • Deandra

      There's a parking lot across the street from the boutique, or you could luck up with some on-street parking. Just be sure to adhere to the posted signs, as the Parking Authority is fanatical in Center City!

    Please be sure to update your RSVP should your availability change. Remember this event requires 48-hours notice. Love working with Dress for Success!
