Spring Swap & Shop

My neglect for you my dear readers will be over soon...I promise!

This post will be short but well worth your time if you love fashion and saving money as much as I do.

For the last few weeks I've been juggling the end of the semester, work, and preparing for an event I'm participating in on Saturday. Since you haven't seen my face in any posts lately you might was well come by the Dewdrop Spring Swap and Shop. Its going down on Saturday, April 21st from 12-3pm. Come on out to the Hilton in Arlington, VA.

Drop off your items between 12:00 - 1:30. Tickets are only $10.00 if you bring at least 5 items to swap. Bring as many pieces as you want though because leftover items will be donated.

I haven't even gotten to the best part yet. Before and after the swap, a pop-up shop will be in the building featuring fabulous local brands including... (**drum roll**) ELAN RENEGADE VINTAGE!!! Come and check us out to add some accessories and other fab pieces to your new spring wardrobe.

Get your ticket HERE

Hope to see you at the swap! Don't forget to stop by and say "hey girl"

Floral Temptress

This is by far one of my favorite looks. I love the spring and this is the epitome of the season. I decided to wear this on my mom's birthday when DC was experiencing some serious weather indecisiveness. I was feeling kind of SEXAY but thought I should keep my vivacious mood under wraps around my lovely parentals. Before my mom's birthday dinner we went to support my dad at his middle-age basketball league game. When we entered the gym my dad told me I needed to button up my blazer and "stop tempting folks out here." I proceeded to sulk into the corner of the bleachers and attempted to to cover my racy, lacy top. So this post is to my daddy who reprimanded me for being a "floral temptress".
