For the dress fanatic

Bridesmaids, mothers of brides, and even guests, social butterflies listen up! Carine’s Bridal Atelier is now selling designer evening wear too.
The couture bridal boutique known for it’s gorgeous dresses now has a line of gowns fit for a bridesmaid or gala-goer.
Carine will kick off wedding parties, galas, and balls with a collection from the Monique Lhuillier, ML line and Theia. She’ll also carry a special Holiday Evening Wear collection from these two lines starting in October.  I love the bronze Monique Lhuillier in the middle below– trying to convince the little sister to choose that for the bridesmaids!

MARK YOUR CALENDAR:Carine’s Bridal will hold a special Trunk show from September 6th until the 12th. There will be a showcase of collections and a 10% discount.

Don’t gawk, Swap!

Everyone has that one friend whose wardrobe is to die for! If you’re like me, you and your best friend may borrow each others favorite shoes or perfect accessories from time to time. Why borrow when you can own. Thanks to “The Swapaholics” Amy Chase & Melissa Massello, you can forget borrowing because there is a new way to get exactly what you want from friends for FREE.

USA TODAY: Swapping Not Shopping
PHOTOS: Swap party recaps

Amy and Melissa, the self proclaimed “The Swapaholics,” have a drawer full of tips for hosting your own clothing swap party. The gals explain this is a budget-friendly way to keep that wardrobe updated without breaking the bank.
The dress-up duo will be in DC Thursday, July 14th, from 6-9pm hosting one of their swaps. Participants bring a bag of gently loved fashions, which Amy & Melissa curate into a “swap boutique,” and at 8pm sharp, the swapping begins.

Perhaps the best part? Everything leftover from the night will be donated to Goodwill of Greater Washington to be sold in their shops to raise money for their job training and empowerment programs. Swap.com is this year’s event sponsor.
