Monif C. Pop-Up Shop

One thing about this whole blogging phenomenon is learning about designers and stores that given different circumstances, I would have never knew even existed.

Just last year, I've discovered ASOS and Dorothy Perkins. This year, it's Evans and Monif C.

Last week, I read somewhere that Monif C. was bringing her boutique to Gaylord Hotel at National Harbor for a one night shopping event. Finally, a chance to see these designs face-to-face and not online. 

I had in mind of the dress I wanted to try on and eventually purchase. Unfortunately,  it was sold out. Shit. However, I came across the "Naomi" High Shoulder Dress w/ Panels. My blogger buddy insisted I should try it on.  And with a little bit more convincing from Monif C, herself...and her assistant...and her intern...and a few stand-by customers, the dress was mine (with a nice little discount attached). My first bodycon dress. *raises the roof*
