Style for a Cause

by Dominique on June 16, 2012

Last Wednesday I was invited to a fundraiser event for the DC based non-profit organization, Women Thrive Worldwide whose goal is to empower women to lift themselves, and their families, out of poverty in the poorest regions throughout the world.  Merging fashion and fundraising, the organization teamed up with Bar Dupont and the super cool boutique on wheels, The Styleliner.  Always one to support a meaningful cause and never passing up an opportunity to check out a new shopping experience, I gladly attended. I was sooo impressed with the extremely unique Styleliner – not only by its creative venue but also by the well curated, hand selected pieces for sale.
I picked out a pair of beautiful tourquoise earrings (soon to be seen) after mulling over a much needed leather belt with gold accents and an absolutely gorgeous one of a kind python cuff (that I’m still pondering over), while my girlfriend scored with the double wrap bracelet seen below. If the uber chic renovated ice cream truck comes to a city near you, I highly suggest you make the time to check it out.

It’s cool that you make a difference where possible and even better that you ally the useful to the pleasant
Tangerine and regal blue perfection and the big hair makes the outfit Hollywood worthy!

Thank you! I debated on buying the dress for awhile but am so glad I did. It will definitely be a staple this summer.
