A Happy Lena Erziak Owner

Happy Lenza Erziak Bag Winner and Boutique Owner: Ann O'Bryan

I have been involved with the charity event: Couture for Cancer supporting the American Cancer Society for five years. I've been the chair a few times, co-chair, as well as responsible for runway shows and procurement. Needless to say, I spend a great deal of time working on this important event. One of my greatest pleasures is talking with designers about their bags and excitedly opening their packages to see what unique treasure they have graciously sent to our event. One of these designers is Lena Erziak who has sent a stunning bag to us for the past two events. This season, we were fortunate to receive the Leopard ponyhair John bag.

On the runway, we paired it with a striking Shoshanna black dress that said classic sophistication. Purrfect for the Executive or Ladies Who Lunch look. This versatile bag easily goes with our winning bidders trendy/casualdenim and black look too!

Ann O'Bryan has been a long time supporter of the event by donating from her women's fashionable / trendy clothing store Boutque Ten47, providing models and bidding liberally on items in our auction. She is the happy owner of Hayden Harnett, Be and D and now Lena Erziak as a result. Ann's style if fashion forward and she really loves big and bold accessories. The John bag absolutely fits with her style. She loves it's easy shape, gold chains and stunning leopard print. But her favorite features is the over-sized black leather tassle featured on the bag. It makes her feel "sassy"! She also doesn't mind the non-stop compliments she receives on the bag.

It's great to see so many benefit from the event, from winners, donors and of course, the cancer patients and family members that benefit from the services provided by the American Cancer Society!
