After a year of fawning over teasers on Instagram and receiving press releases of products, Adrienne Bosh’s lifestyle store, Sparkle and Shine Darling, is finally open.
Bosh, wife of Miami Heat forward Chris Bosh and an entrepreneur in her own right, hosted a week of sneak-peek events at the store on Alton Road in Miami Beach. I had the opportunity to visit the Wednesday before the public opening, and she delivered what she promised fans.
From the glittery floor to the chandeliers, Bosh created the ultimate happy place from that can be recreated at home with inspirational desk supplies and stationery, home decor, kitchen wares, party items of all kinds, tufted coaches overflowing with throw pillows, and books. Different tables and shelves carried items of every taste, from “Mystic Darlings” (think tarot cards, candles, stones, and elephant decor) to Parisian chic (adult tutus, bejeweled headbands, perfumes, and tea sets).
Also, the store has a private backroom with a number of themes, perfect for bridal showers, bachelorette parties, Sweet 16s, or just an excuse to get a group of friends together. Bosh had a photo booth for the opening events, which will be a permanent feature in the store.
Yes, Sparkle and Shine Darling is fun and lighthearted, but Bosh inserted her mission of girl power and women supporting women as well. A book shelf was filled with self help books, autobiographies by leading ladies, and stationery with quotes that’ll get anyone out of a funk (“A passionate woman is worth the chaos,” “BRB– busy building an empire”). Plus, she included items from local designers and stores to promote other Miami ladies.
I’ve been following Bosh on social media for some time, and enjoyed her sense of style, love of family and friends, and community service. So it was extra exciting to be able to feature her in Indulge magazine’s My305Style page in this year’s holiday issue (it’s out now, pick up a copy!). I was definitely star struck when I arrived at the store, where she was in all her sequin-dressed glory. She came over to chat and thank me for the write up, and then to top it all off, her hubby walked in to support her.
Definitely a night to remember, and you bet I’ll be back to sparkle and shine.
Sparkle and Shine Darling is located at 1665 Alton Road in Miami Beach, 786-278-7273. Be sure to follow the store and Adrienne Bosh on social media.
