WIWT3 x Goodwill

I want to take the time to say thank you so much to everyone that supported the WHAT I WORE: tip to toe! (#WIWT3) curated boutique at the annual Goodwill Pop-Up shop and trunk show. Some of you shopped til you dropped and scored the pieces I pulled for the event. Others cheered me on at the VIP cocktail party celebrating the curators. And so many of you sent me words of  encouragement when I posted about the event on social media.

Having the opportunity to work with Goodwill on this project was a full-circle moment for me. I’ve been covering the Goodwill Greater Washington fashion events on WHAT I WORE: tip to toe! for sometime now.

Below are a few photos of the other curators and a sneak peek of the item I purchased from the pop-up shop. A full outfit post on that piece is coming soon!

Here's a look at the mannequin I styled for the #WIWT3 x Goodwill boutique

Angelica in the City

WHAT I WORE: tip to toe!

I love supporting other bloggers. I recently celebrated the relaunch of blogger Angelica Talan. For years Angelica has run a wildly successful "mommy blog" called Clarendon Moms; now she's re-branding her marketing skills with a new travel and lifestyle blog called Angelica in the City!

The launch party was held at Cera Wax Studio in Bethesda and we had a great time checking out their services. There were a few wax virgins in the bunch and Angelica was so sweet, soothing their nerves and keeping their champagne glasses full. 

I knew I'd be coming straight from work to the event so  around the office I wore a fitted jersey dress paired with a blazer then threw on a denim vest from Madewell before leaving for the party. 

Make sure to check out Angelica in the City and follow Angelica on Facebook, Instagram and Snapchat (AngelicaTalan).
