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!

Can you see the blue clutch and the Gray clutch on the left? I couldn’t decide which one to get, ended up getting the gray one. I liked the design on the front. Ok and how fabulous is that animal print boot? To see more check out http://www.iconfashionboutiquedmv.com/.
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.
