Legally Fun Fashion

I read a story yesterday titled “Teens Hack Into PR Database to Get Into Fashion Shows.”  Even style-addicts would agree it’s not worth it to break the law for a fashion show. You could be behind bars faster than Tory Burch’s sale items are sold out and before you know it you’re in the clink without your W, Vogue or DC Modern Luxury to pass the time.

Luckily for you, I know a place where you can legally obtain a front-row seat to the catwalk and enjoy uber-chic styles as they’re paraded down the runway.  You can also shop the merchandise of  ultra-talented clothing, jewelry and handbag designers while you and your friends enjoy a glass of wine or beer to the beat of top DJ tunes…and it’s FREE!


Sound too good to be true? Well it’s not. It’s happening right now in Crystal City and you’d be a fool to pass up this opportunity. Get your stylish little self over to Crystal Couture, stat! I’m not kidding. The selection of designers and merchandise is outstanding and several items are one-of-a-kind, like the adorable sweetheart back-knot sundress my fashionista friend Kathy scored from Toucan Boutique. Or stop by and visit Meagan Kurtz of ADMK jewelry and adorn yourself with some of her unique and pretty designs.


Even though it’s a week-long event, I’m already kicking myself for missing the first 2 nights – and that’s only because I was out of town. So what’s your excuse? Here’s just a few highlights of what you (yes, you!) are missing  if you don’t check it out:

rachelleceline  – I saw a pair of Rachelle’s earrings across the room and had them on my ears within 10 minutes – that’s how pretty her designs are. Feminine, cool, delicate, stylish. You don’t want to miss her! Visit her site for more information or to host your own rachelleceline showing.


MiMi Dabo of BoutiqueMix –  She’s got an eye for fashion and style is second-nature to her. MiMi’s fun, fresh clothing and Stella & Dot jewelry selections will have you wanting one of everything!

Belafigura – The runway show for this gorgeous swimwear features Minoo Mobin-Ventura’s lovely creations designed for cancer survivors.


Philissa Williams of Thembe Fashions – such cool, on-time designs and fabrics. I barely had a boot in the door when I spied a gorgeous black & gray striped knit sweater with lines so hip, I immediately had MJ’s “Bad” playing in my mind as I put it on. Sold!

There’s so much more, but it’s time for this girl to put on her Holly Golightly sleep mask and dream of what’s in store at Crystal Couture tomorrow night. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz………..
