Chic Shop DMV

Hello guys! I feel like I’m always apologizing to you all for taking so long to post! I really need to post more often. This post is kind of a long one so forwarning you all! Remember last post (Leggy Luncheon) where I mentioned I had a busy weekend? Well on Sun 4/26 I went to Chic Shop DMV that was presented by Hakeemah (Cover me Beautiful) and Areej Fashions.  Chic Shop DMV was a fashion, craft, and beauty bazaar, which means it was right up my alley lol.There were so many vendors there, I tried to get pictures of most of them so that I could post them here.

So let’s get started. The bazaar was at Thurgood Marshall Center in Washington DC. When I arrived, there was a chalk drawing outside at the entrance which was a cute way to let people know they were in the correct place. Once you entered and registered, there was a food room that had vendors selling bean pies, cupcakes in jars, smoothies, chocolate and other sweets. There was also a table where people were preparing hot food.

When I entered the actual room where the vendors were, there was so much to see! Tables were set up with people selling all kinds of things from clothing and accessorires, to all natural beauty products like body butter and soaps etc. Below are pictures of some of the tables with links to their websites IF I was able to get that information.  I went around to each table and ended up buying some body butter, soap, scarfs, two bracelets, and a clutch. They also had people doing henna, a hot hula class I think, and a picture stand where you could get a professional picture taken. Everyone was very nice and prices were reasonable. I can’t wait for the next one!

Sorry this picture is blurry. I ended up buying one of the body butters from Wanderlust. She makes all her own from all natural organic products. The one I got had a light citrusy smell. I haven’t used it yet, but it smells wonderful.

Guys I just really want to thank you for being patient with me. Summer is here and I should have more time to blog. I’ve got LOTs of ideas, just need to time to share them with you! Have a wonderful weekend!!

FASHION BLOGGER FRIDAY

Happy Friday!!!!

So on my instagram page I have been doing something called Fashion blogger Fridays. My take on #fbf, instead of flashback Fridays.  Today I thought, why not post on my blog as well for those of you who do not follow me on IG or FB, I can still share these wonderful bloggers with you! Normally I will post one about one fashion blogger each Friday, but today I will post all of the bloggers that I have posted the past few weeks to catch you all up. Today I featured Fabhima She is one of my most favorite fashion bloggers. Her sophisticated chic style is so fabulous and gives homage to style icons from the 50s and 60s. She pulls off styles that I wish I could ! Her instagram page is @fabhima, or you can check out her blog here.140

Deeqa is the very first fashion blogger that I featured for FBF. She is one of the most unique fashion bloggers I have found so far.  Her style in her own words can be described as “authentic, creative and bold”. She wears a lot of vintage looks and many of them are self made.  She pulls her inspiration from her mother’s closet, Audrey Hepburn, and Sarah Jessica Parker.  Her blog can be found here.136

Leena was one of the first fashion bloggers I started following. I love her style, its impeccable.  Not only is she one of the cutest bloggers out there, she’s so sweet.  She answered my questions since I’m new to blogging (whereas some bloggers totally ignore you lol). Beautiful and caring, great combo! Her blog is found here.137

 

I like to get ideas and inspiration from all kinds of bloggers. This day I featured Tanesha. Her blog was named best curvy blog in 2012 and she has a collection as well. I love her blog because if you see something you like you can buy it from her website. Also she is tall and curvy so when she wears something I can kind of have an Idea what it might look like on me. Love seeing other curvy bloggers! Her blog can be found here.138

Audrey I happened to randomly stumble upon while going through my instagram feed and followed her after just seeing one picture.  On top of being so adorable, I love her style.  I feel like in a way we are a bit similar in that we don’t fit into one specific kind of style, but take from different styles to put together stylish outfits.  I also like that she is studying to be a journalist (totally would I would have done in my other life!).  Her blog can be found here.139

I hope you guys enjoy these installments of FBF! When I find things that I like, I love to share, so check out these guys 🙂
