As residents of the tri-state area know, the devastation of Hurricane Sandy still permeates in the everyday lives of thousands.

On Saturday, 200 girls lined up in the Lower East Side of Manhattan to enjoy a free shopping spree at Mary Alice Stephenson’s Glam4Good pop-up store. From 5 to 8 years old, the little ladies shopped designer brands with two large bags they were given. With only five minutes to visit each display, they were able to nab items like DKNY cocktail dresses, Jason Wu pumps, Calvin Klein coats and Prabal Gurung scarves– all donated by the design houses.

The post Sandy recovery effort came together with the leadership of Stephenson, a stylist to the stars, who previously did a drive for 100 families in the Rockaways. With her help many people have been able to experience the joy of the season, duty free. “First, we went in with tampons, batteries, Depends, and now they will be pampered,” Stephenson told The Cut, before adding seriously: “I know the healing power of a sparkle.”
