Summary: Last Wednesday, I had the opportunity to go to the monthly DC FABB meetup. This time around, it was held at an upscale, eco-friendly boutique called Carbon. It's located in the heart of the Woodley Park neighborhood in DC. Also, the founders of DC FABB, Liz and Lacey, organized 10 local designers (who had items being sold at Carbon) to converse with us about their products. Me being me, I got there late. This event went from 7-9pm. I got there at 8:30pm. *avoids eye contact* I would've been there at 7:30ish (I mean, that's still late but that's a little bit better than some 8:30), but I got lost. Which is natural because I stay getting lost driving in DC. Ah well. Luckily for me, it was still on and popping by the time I got there. I was a bit confused. Like, was this going to be the after party? Nope. The attendants were having such a great time enjoying the cupcakes, drinks and socializing that no one wanted to leave at 9pm. Victory for me!
On to the pictures!

Her neon yellow clutch was a hit.
Also a hit? The cupcakes she made for the event!

After the event, Michelle and I were every bit of hungry. I mean, cupcakes can only do so much. So we went to...
...which was on the same block of the event, for some sushi and water. Yes, water. It was hot/humid so drinking alcoholic beverages certainly would not have kept us cool and it didn't help that we ate outside. While eating, Michelle noticed
Kenya Keenyah from Cycle 4 of America's Next Top Model. I totally forgot about her and her season (which makes sense because it followed the best season ever of that series - Cycle 3). It all came rushing back to me when I saw her face.
That was my evening! Please visit Carbon for some great shopping. Also, visit here to see the designers that participated. Finally, to all DC area fashion, beauty and life style bloggers that just so happen to be reading this lil' ol' blog, register to become a part of the DC FABB. You will not be disappointed!
Wishing everyone a safe and fantastic week...while looking fashionable!
