A few years back I sat at my desk, unfulfilled & knowing that I was supposed to be doing more. I wasn’t exactly sure what that ‘more’ was but I knew I wasn’t the type to sit on my hiney & let my 20s pass me by without DOING something. The next thing I knew I was scouring the web looking for the best name for my fashion meets child advocacy organization. G.L.A.M., Giving Labels A Meaning, was born.
The premise is simple. Shop what you love & the money is donated to the child advocacy group G.L.A.M. has chosen to benefit that year. B. A., right? It gets better. As DC area natives, Eden Raskin & I wanted to make sure we were including our homeland in this sweet deal so all the shops at events are local. Double amazefest. If this isn’t the best reason to shop, I don’t know what is.
Has this peer pressure set in yet? If so, snag your tickets here. If not, I’ve put together a case for my argument below that includes the best DC based boutiques, mouth watering giveaways, & your favorite DC bloggers. But first, some quick deets:

Sometimes all you need is a little leopard detailing to make the outfit, no matter the season. I’ve never been one for animal print but in the past year I’ve found, fallen in love with, & become borderline obsessed with all things leopard. Pairing neutral colors to create a statement print? There’s nothing better. Even in a print, the earthy color palette makes it simple to mix & match this clutch with tons of pieces you already have in your closet.
Head over heels for leopard statements like me? Make sure to snag your raffle tickets for Thursday night’s G.L.A.M. Summer Fashion Event & WIN this Love Cortnie stunner! Get the here & at the door!
If you’ve been following me on Instagram for the past few weeks you may have noticed a little influx of clothing racks, shopping trips, & late night meetings & we all know what that means…the G.L.A.M. Summer Charity Fashion Event is right around the corner!
For those of you not familiar with G.L.A.M., it’s a non-profit organization that stands for Giving Labels A Meaning that I started back in 2011 in the hopes of giving back to the child advocacy community here in DC. G.L.A.M. hosts fashion events in the city & donates 100% of the profits to the child advocacy organization that we have chosen to benefit for the event. This year G.L.A.M. is benefitting Safe Shores DC & I would love for you to come shop the night away with me for a great cause!
The deets: You, me, your bffls & your fiercest outfit next Thursday night from 6:30-9pm at 906 H St NW.
