By a series of very fortunate events, I found myself walking down a runway last week at Swap in the City. What's more, I found myself walking down a runway with tall, beautiful models. It was intimidating, exhilerating, and so fun!
Everyone there was a smizing expert. As you will see, I have not yet mastered smizing or model faces, but damn, these girls were blazing hot.
Our make up and hair was done by an incredibly talented team from the W Salon.
Krystin Hargrove of Be Loud Be You is the best smizer on earth! I'm not kidding-- check out her blog and she will melt you with her laser eyes. She is also one half of 8 Vintage, a fab online store featuring reconstructed vintage apparel by Krystin and her partner Denisio.
Krystin is wearing a consigned Alexander Wang dress (available right now on Snobswap!) and a necklace by Anchyi Wei Designs. I loved that Anchyi styled some ladies with a few pieces from her upcoming collection!
Super cheese. No smize. I'm wearing a Dolce and Gabanna skirt and Hervé Leger top from Snobswap.
This young lady was my favorite of the evening. She's wearing D'Milikah, but mostly, she is wearing her ethereal beauty. I was totally mesmerized.
The whole evening was put together by Dewdrop and Snobswap, with proceeds benefiting Becky's Fund, and each of these organizations deserves recognition:
Becky's Fund helps people understand the elements of domestic violence through education, encourages people to take an active role in helping battered victims find safety through counseling, education and legal representation, and provides support for victims of domestic violence.
Dewdrop is a producer of fashion events, specifically fashion-forward clothing swaps, where stylish locals gather to swap clothes, promoting sustainable living through fashion. Dewdrop also gives back to the community by teaming up with charitable organizations, and most of their events come with pop-up shops, where DC’s local talent gets to showcase their uniquely handcrafted wares.
Snobswap is an online marketplace where users can buy, sell, swap and save on coveted luxury and designer clothing, handbags, shoes, and accessories. It's fun, budget-friendly, and fabulously green.
I was honored to have taken part in such a lovely evening for a great cause. Big thanks to everyone at Snobswap, Dewdrop, 1776, the W Salon, and Becky's Fund for such a lovely evening!
