Maven gals turn one

Maven Womenswear anniversary party

It's hard to believe it's been a year since the maven of Maven Menswear opened a store across the way for her own kind. Christina Barbier's vision for a women's store that would fill a niche for the fearless dresser about town has certainly come by way of the River Ranch store and on Friday they celebrate the way they do at the Mavens - shop, party, eat, music.

The First Friday celebration this week is dedicated to the store's first year as well as an homage to Festival. The crew has been storing up some seriously festive Festival wares (we saw a coin-covered gypsy wrap and that's all we're saying) for just such an occasion. The Festival-centric pieces will be ready for purchase come Friday along with the usual eclectic blend of sharp Ivanka Trump shoes, high-waisted shorty cutoffs and sexy maxis.
