Girls Just Wanna Have Shecky’s


What better way to celebrate spring and enjoy yourself than a night out with the girls? My pretty pals and I kicked up our heels and got our shop, drink, and swag on at Shecky’s Girls Night Out last week at Constitution Hall.

Girls

Shecky’s knows what a girl wants: fashion from talented designers at discounted prices; delish cocktails; latest beauty treatments; and Shecky’s popular swag bag. Of course the icing on the cupcake is sharing it all with your girlfriends!

Cocktails were flowing – and sloshing & splashing around  – as we tried to navigate the crowd while juggling our drinks, shopping and swag bags. Cheers to anyone who managed to stay splash-free throughout the evening!

There were scads of accessory and jewelry vendors this year, but a couple that really caught my eye were Katie Thompson’s KT Collection of handmade jewelry…

…and one of my favorite boutiques, Fornash. Thanks to the inspiration, creativity, and stylish eye of owner Stephanie Fornash Kennedy, clients and fans will always be delighted with colorful, beautiful and classy pieces.

One of my primo purchases this spring is this lovely lucite chandelier necklace. It makes any outfit party-ready, à la Holly Golightly.

My chic friend Carolyn snapped up this darling wicker clutch perfectly suited to her classic style.

They were a little light on the clothes this year which was a tad disappointing for this frock-loving girl, but the designers on-site were a delight, especially LaKisha Cameron and her pretty Marzee collection.

We made a bee-line for Marzee as soon as we arrived. My savvy shopmate Dee scooped up a gorg saffron shift with ruffle trim down the side that looks like it came straight from Fashion Week. Be sure to visit the new Marzee Boutique in Georgetown!

My fab friend and sassy stylista, Sherry, scored oodles of goodies including strands of beautiful sterling and brushed silver filigree necklaces from La Bella Destino, and some glam gauzy tunics from Mad Clothing.

Although I was impressed once again with how well-organized the event was, I have one question, Shecky’s: when will you decide to have some nibbles for us? Some of those cocktails were pret-ty strong and we could have used some tasty cupcakes or other treats.

If you missed it, there’s still a chance to catch them in another city or when they’re back in DC in the fall. In between, you can get your fix at the Designer Lounge!

Girls Night Out, Shecky’s style – who could ask for anything more?

    What a WONDERFUL evening! Loving each purchase (and those by others!) One more suggestion for the 'shecky's' folk—how about a zipper on those bags or a backpack style? For those of us who can't seem to stop ourselves, our arms and hands get FULL mighty quickly! Sign me up now for the next one!
