Skirting the issue: Rene Geneva Boutique.

My good friend Rene Geneva, an eco-fashion designer here in Austin, is having a sample sale and boutique opening party tonight to celebrate her new girly, environmentally-friendly line.  
As SXSW approaches Austin with ever-increasing momentum, I’ve been looking for an excuse to pick up a special something (or two) … and I think tonight’s the night!
If you live here in town and fancy the fashions, then stop by after work.  The party tonight because it begins with a sample sale, with Rene’s dresses starting at $40 (normally $150 – $250), and coats at $60-$150 (normally $250 – $500).  Dang!
Also … for soon-to-be brides.  Linda Asaf, who shares boutique space with Rene, is teaming up with her for a bridal gown raffle tonight.  To enter, raffle tickets are $10 each, and the winner gets a $5000 dress.  That’s not an extra zero, I really did just type $5000.

And if you don’t live in Austin, you can peruse Rene’s stuff here.  
Rene calls the style of her new pieces “Mad Men meets Tango,” and I think that’s a very apt description. 
I have to say, I’m drooling over all the layers in her new skirts!  They make me wanna go on a pant-cation for a very long time.
