Dewdrop DC’s First-Ever Home-Decor Swap Coming Soon
Hello beauties! I am definitely making a habit out of appologizing to you lovelies, and I am so sorry about that, but I’ve missed you all tons! I hope you are all doing as fabulous as ever (I’m sure you are!), and, for those of you in DC, hopefully you’re surviving the snowpocalypse that we are currently experiencing.
Anyway, getting back to business…
Do you love home decor? How about absolutely fabulous vendors such as: Rodan + Fields, Stella & Dot, Jamberry, and so much more?! Well let me tell you, I am obsessed with all of the above and, lucky for me, they will all be in one place at Dewdrop’s #HouseCrush event, the company’s first-ever home decor swap! Not familiar with Dewdrop? Well, let me fill you in on this wonderful company…
What is Dewdrop?
Dewdrop DC, a start-up company located in Washington, DC, is a fashion-event company best known for its “fashion-forward clothing swaps”. According to the company’s website, a clothing swap is a place “where stylish locals gather in a fun environment and swap clothes, promoting sustainable living through fashion.”
Other events that Dewdrop has hosted in the past include pop-up shops, where they partner with DC’s local talent to showcase and sell their products and wares. The company also hosts happy hours, fashion shows, and so much more! But that’s not all this great company does… In addition, Dewdrop also makes a habit out of teaming up with local charitable organizations, giving back to the community as much as possible and making it a local business in the purest form.
The company, founded by DC-native Kristine Thomas, has been mentioned and featured in a number of publications, including: The Washington Post, Washingtonian, NBC, Refinery 29, Ask Miss A, Pamela’s Punch, to name just a few!
Dewdrop also holds a permanent soft spot in my heart, as it is where I interned during my last semester of college and post-graduation when I was on the job-hunt. Being a company that really places a big focus on sustainable, green living, as well as giving back to charity and doing its part for the DC community, it is a company that I could always feel good about working for. Even though I was only an intern, I was always able to feel like I was really doing my part as well as pursuing my dream of working in the fashion industry! It was one of the absolute best places to work and Kristine continues to be a big part of my life!
What is this #HouseCrush event all about?
A spin off the company’s typical clothing swap events, Dewdrop is excited to announce its first-ever home decor swap! So, how does it work, you may wonder? Well, everyone in the DC area is invited, and all Dewdrop is asking is that attendees bring their pre-loved, stylish home decor items to swap with others at the event. You take the stuff that you have already had a chance to love, and in return, you leave with new-to-you things that someone else may have already had a chance to love. Who ever said going green and recycling can’t be chic?!
All items that are brought to the event must fit in a blue Ikea bag, and anything remaining at the end of the swap will be donated to Goodwill of Greater Washington.
Dewdrop’s #HouseCrush will be taking place on Saturday, February 6, 2016, from 1 to 4pm, at the Keller Williams Arlington, VA location (right off the Court House metro stop). **More event information available in Dewdrop’s press release.
I don’t know about you all, but I cannot wait for this event! And, (…here comes another big announcement!) as I get ready to [finally] flock the nest and move out of my parents house, and into an apartment in Chinatown with my wonderful boyfriend Dan, the timing could not be more perfect as I am obviously in the market for new housewares!
So, where will you be on the afternoon of February 6th? I think you all know where you’ll find me, and I can only hope to see all of your beautiful and shining faces there!
I hope you all have a great weekend and please stay safe and warm in this ridiculous blizzard!
