Fall is just around the corner which means school is back in session, the leaves are about to change colors and Dewdrop DC will be hosting their fabulous Get Lucky Swap and Shop.

There will be pop-up shops, a VIP Lucky Charm cocktail hour, fashion show and, of course, the Swap. Don’t miss out on this fashionable event on Saturday, September 15.
Pop-Up Shops: Before and after the swap, you’ll be able to shop at pop-up shops, which consist of talented local apparel and accessory companies. The line-up includes Accessories That Make the Outfit, Jewelry by Carmen LeFleur, LITTLE by darin michelle, Nic’s Picks and Styles by Elo.
VIP Lucky Charm Cocktail Hour: Who doesn’t enjoy a cocktail while shopping? From 2:30–3:30 p.m., enjoy drinks and appetizers while you get an exclusive presentation of the latest fall styling tips from major fashion expert, Monica Barnett.
Barnett is the founder of Blueprint for Style and she is also a Lucky Magazine Alpha Shopper. With over nine years of professional styling experience, she is the go-to expert on fashion styling. Fashionistas should come to this swap just to hear her coveted styling tips.
Fashion Show: To top off this great fashion event, a fabulous fashion show will be included. Dewdrop added a creative twist by having a blogger-style challenge fashion show using items dropped off for the swap. Bloggers including Be Loud Be You, Clarendon Moms, Fashionably Broke and Spicy Candy will style and model the hottest fall trends and showcase the looks for less. Don’t miss out on this fun fashion show from 4-4:15 p.m.
The Swap: At 4:15 p.m., the doors to the swap will open. Tables and clothing racks will be sorted and labeled by type of clothing and size, from extra small to plus size. To avoid waiting in line, you can drop off your items anytime from 2–3:45 p.m.
Try your luck by bringing in seven or more stylish items that can be anything from like-new clothing to shoes and accessories. In return, you’ll be able to exchange it for seven new-to-you items from other fashionistas. Embrace some more good fortune by bringing “lucky” designer jeans (Lucky Brand, True Religion and Seven for All Mankind). For each pair, you will get two more items to take home.
This season’s Swap and Shop will benefit two local non-profits, Good Girls DC and Martha’s Outfitters. Good Girls DC’s goal is to create a place where like-minded Catholic women can find fellowship, friends and networking opportunities while encouraging each other to live up to their God-given potential. Martha’s Outfitters’ mission is to transform lives by engaging the community in developing sustainable solutions to poverty. So not only will you look great in your new wardrobe, but you’ll feel great too, knowing that a portion of the proceeds goes towards these wonderful causes.
