What: An education-inspired fashion fete benefiting Breakthrough Houston.

Where: Alice + Olivia in River Oaks District.

The scoop: Carolyn Dorros, Jennie Segal, and Molly Voorhees welcomed friends to the chic boutique for the evening during which 20 percent of sales went to the nonprofit committed to aiding high-potential students who suffer from underserved educational opportunities.

"Everyone caught up on vacation adventures, shopped for new fall clothes, and learned about Breakthrough's summer program -- its largest ever," said Dorros, chair of the organization’s Advisory Council. 

Who: Liz Stepanian, Laura Arnold, Courtney Toomey, Vidya Bala, Jamil and Carter Higley, Allison Leibman, Viviana Denechaud, Jennifer Laporte, Jennifer Ligums, and Lauren Morgan.
