Seeking Prom Dress Donations at Katwalk Boutique “Shop & Tell” Event

The plan was to host a Prom Queen Boutique with the Launched Ladies Creative Agency for DC area high school students in need of a prom dress and accessories.  The Prom Queen Boutique is a intimate boutique set up to cater to young deserving women to try on selected donated dresses, gowns, shoes and accessories along with hair & makeup consultations.

Although we weren’t able to connect with a DC high school or organization to make the Prom Queen Boutique a reality in DC, the boutique is taking place in Baltimore.  The boutique will cater to young women of Reginald F. Lewis High School.  Through the end of April, Katwalk Boutique is collecting gently worn prom gowns, cocktail dresses and accessories.

Katwalk Boutique Seeking Prom Dress Donations at Katwalk Boutique Shop & Tell Event

I know for some, Baltimore may be a hike, especially during the week. If you want to make a donation, stop by Katwalk Boutique this Saturday, April 27th. Between 2-8pm, shoppers will enjoy cocktails, preview the new spring collection, and receive a free makeup consultation by Motives for LaLa.  There will also be a silent auction to benefit the Prom Queen Boutique. If you make a dress/accessories donation that day, you’ll receive $25.00 toward a Katwalk Boutique purchase.

If you are able to make it to Baltimore to make a dress and accessories donation, I encourage you to do so! Hopefully I’ll be able to partner with organizations in the DC area next year to host a prom dress donation drive.

Model For A Day: WUSA9 ‘Inauguration Fashions’ TV Segment

This morning, I along with four other DC fashion bloggers, had the opportunity to model Inauguration gowns on WUSA9 News for their segment on Inauguration Fashions.   We showed off gowns from Carine’s Bridal Atelier and accessories from Bishop Boutique. It was an extremely early morning (we met at 4am), but I had a great time dressing up and being a model for the day with other local bloggers.
