Stock Up On Bold Baubles At Queen Bee's Weekend Blowout

qbslide
We can think of few shopping opportunities more exciting than browsing inside a designer's studio. After all, you're not only seeing where the magic happens, but you can score a piece of it on the spot. This weekend, you can get that one-of-a-kind thrill when you head to a trunk show and blowout sale at Queen Bee Designs' NoVa studio. Designer Allison Priebe Brooks is known for her chunky, candy-esque statement necklaces, and we think one of her creations is just the thing to top off a flirty sundress. For the trunk show, Brooks is slashing prices on her inventory, marking items down to wholesale prices (that's as much as 50% off retail, if you're wondering). Head to the studio on Saturday or Sunday to indulge in some bubbly and shop six rooms filled with all the show-stopping baubles you could ever need. Seriously, do you have better weekend plans than that?
When: Saturday, June 15, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; Sunday, June 16, from noon to 5 p.m.
Where: Queen Bee Designs Studio, 1410 Cool Spring Drive, Alexandria; no phone.
