Earlier this month, local designer Daniela Corte drew Boston's most stylish to the W to shop, sip, and
raise some green for the Robin Hood Foundation's Sandy
relief effort. All proceeds from the evening's signature cocktails - like the Ricardo
(heavy on the tequila) and the Daniela (prosecco laced with gold glitter) -
were donated, as was a portion of proceeds from Corte's new collection of
fierce leggings, stretchy knit numbers accented with sequins, silk, and faux
leather. After a do-good drink or two, we caught up with a member of her
Kerri Walsh, director of operations at
Kerri's words to live by: dress happy! That's not hard for
her, as she gets first dibs on all of Corte's new designs.
She wore a Daniela Corte peplum wool jacket, a
Daniela Corte leather belt, a Theory tank top, and - what else? - a pair of
Corte's signature leggings. (She confesses to owning close to 15 pairs, which
she essentially lives in.)
Always running from the Newbury Street HQ
to after-work events, she goes from day to night with a swipe of
eyeliner and a pair of heels, like these surprisingly comfy Alexandre Birman
What was at the top of her wish list?
A trip to Argentina with
Corte, who visits her native country to oversee production at least once a
year. Kerri hasn't gotten to travel there . . . yet. (Hint, hint.)
