Pop-Up in DC! June 04 2016
If you haven’t been to one yet, the new trend among ladies is Pop-Up Parties. Everything from skincare to health and wellness is hot, hot, hot! I’ve been hosting pop-up parties for my clothes and accessories. Florida is my main spot. Women have asked me to host their private parties so their guests can shop, shop, shop! I’m like a traveling boutique circus. I bring the rolling racks, boxes of accessories, and clothes. Ya know that clothing pole that retirees put across the backseat of their town cars?? I have that, ha! Smart and easy way to travel with pieces so they don’t wrinkle. I’ve done parties in Jacksonville, Tampa, Clearwater, Pampano Beach, and Orlando. I love personal styling women, giving them personal attention…instead of them shopping alone online.
Then, good news! My sister lives in DC and wanted to have a party for her girlfriends. She went to enough events, tired of the same concepts. I was stoked when she asked me to fly from FL to DC to have a TADofstyle Pop-Up Shop! First thought, yes! Second thought, how was I going to pull off an out-of-state party. However, I couldn’t say no because it’d be too fun to pass up. So we picked a date, I packed up some clothes & accessories, and shipped off to DC!
I flew out the following week and stayed with my sister. Could have killed her though. I asked her what the weather was like so I could pack accordingly. She said to me “think Spring.” Being a Florida girl, I brought rompers, sandals, maxi dresses, etc. Well I get there and lose my s**t! It’s freezing!! People were literally in sweaters and gloves. I was livid as you can imagine. Did I mention I looked ridiculous in Florida spring clothes instead of jackets and beanies. The words FLORIDA TOURIST should have been plastered on my forehead!
The evening of the party was awesome! Ten DC girlies who have never seen my unique, exclusive pieces before. They like everything…or at least they told me so;) champagne was flowin’ and clothes were flyin’! We took pics or the girls in their new outfits, so I could use in social media. What a great way to advertise PERSONAL STYLIST & BOUTIQUE…WILL TRAVEL. This was a challenge, but so worth it. The girls had a fabulous girly night and I learned a lot about hosting an out-of-state par-tay! What an experience!
