The Too Thrifty Chicks got it in gear on a rainy Sunday afternoon to hang out with the wonderful fashion and beauty bloggers of the FABB Girls Club. ALDO Accessories at the Fashion Centre, Pentagon City, kept their doors open long after closing time to give ladies a chance to meet, greet, play dress up, win amazing accessories, and most of all, SHOP.
We’re regular readers of blogger and FABB Girls Club member Brea Ellis who blogs about her adventures in fashion over at What I Wore: Tip to Toe. We saw her promotion of the event bounce into the inbox and knew it would be a nice way to spend a Sunday evening and we weren’t disappointed. What’s not to love when handbags were 30 percent off and accessories were buy three, get 20 percent off? Yes, please. Thank you. Thirst quenching beverages and snacks also were on deck, which was a nice touch for those of us who can shop until our blood sugar is low. Can we get an amen? Amen.
In addition to getting our shop on, we also got to meet FABB Girls Club creator Lauren Scott, who is putting down the hauteness over at Haute off the Press. Special shout out to her for taking this lovely picture of the two of us, since we’re rarely in pictures together!
ALDO Accessories is one of Ricks’ favorite places for fun, affordable and funky accessories that give a thrifted ensemble just the right amount of wow factor for any occasion. We both left with some goodies for the Too Thrifty Chicks accessory stash, and you’ll be seeing those pieces served up in a thrifty post coming to you soon. Check out some more of these candids from the event.
