Glitz, Glamour, & Spring Arrive In D.C. With Our Hollywood-Inspired Bash

Not going to lie, we're a little jealous that we don't always make the cut when it comes to all of Hollywood's star-studded parties. No matter. We teamed up with CUSP by Neiman Marcus for our own VIP soiree at the Georgetown store last Thursday.
Every partygoer got the star treatment — starting with a pink carpet for arrivals (paparazzi included!). And, in true VIP style, there were custom cocktails, a celeb-inspired beauty bar (with a nonstop line all night), a popcorn stand, and a killer candy bar. We shopped (with our host E, the blogger behind District of Chic, sharing her styling expertise), we danced (DJ Adrian Loving knows there's never a bad time to drop a Michael Jackson beat), and we mingled, turning exclusive shopping into a Hollywood-worthy night of glitz and glamour.
