Mom Jeans Makeover
They might be comfortable, but “mom jeans” definitely aren’t cool. Trade in those out-of-style pants for some flattering denim during StyleFinder Boutique’s Mom Jeans Makeover event Friday and Saturday, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. A donation of old jeans gets shoppers $20 off a new pair, including Beija Flor and Stone Sisters, both of which will have new styles in stock during a trunk show that coincides with the event. Call 919-454-3068 for more info.
Joint Venture Jewelry in Cary celebrates mothers and daughters during the Mother-Daughter Bling, Baubles and Bubbly Party on Saturday, 2-4 p.m. Moms and their daughters can check out jewelry while enjoying Champagne, snacks and a silent auction benefiting the Me Fine Foundation, which helps critically ill children at Duke and UNC hospitals.
