Gals About Town

We Trovesters love to throw cool soirees, but sometimes we're more thrilled just to be guests. We're happy to say we're buds with so many fine Indiana ladies. From fellow boutique owners to bloggers, photographers and various other creatives, we can't think of anything better than supporting all the #girlbosses we call friends. Through the work of a handful of these fab ladies, part of our team ended up as guests at a wonderful, beautiful event, one with meaning, hosted by the phenomenal Photanical ladies, Eden and Ruth.

In an effort to help fellow women in need, Photanical harnessed local companies Yummi Bunni, Fancy & Staple, Idlehour and Lace & Arrow into a philanthropic super group for their first ever installment of their brand spanking new #flightfulfw series. Yummi Bunni passed out delicious ice cream floats and guests made flower arrangements, courtesy of Fresh Thyme and Nicole Funk, to give to their fav-o-rite Galentine. The price of the ticket went to providing feminine care products for the women who reside in The Courtyard, an apartment community for those aging out of foster care, or at risk of becoming homeless.

It felt great to band together with women to help women, and to have such a beautiful (and tasty) time doing it. As one Trovester said, "It was like Lilith Fair, but without all the angst."
