#FemmeFataleDC- A Ladies Only Networking and Fashion Event

Since I have transitioned from a more conservative and traditional career as a lawyer into more of a creative (although I don't consider myself a creative) space as a stylist, I sometimes crave the  energy of other creatives for inspiration and motivation in my journey. Unfortunately, I have found that attending certain "fashion/style" events can be a little hit, and a lot of miss. However, a few Fridays ago I had the opportunity to go to Femme Fatale DC. I had seen it posted by various women in the DMV over the last few weeks and had put it on my calendar. It was advertised as an all women Networking and Fashion Party- and I had no idea what to expect. Especially since I have attended a number of fashion events in DC that I found to be severely underwhelming. Sorry not sorry if you are one of those who has thrown one of these poorly attended, lack luster event but I am more sorry to those of us who had to painfully endure it. But back to the subject of this post: Femme Fatale DC - an all women networking and fashion event.  Some of you may already be turned off reading that is a women's only party but I am and have always been a woman's woman.  So just like I crave to be around the energy of creatives I crave to be around positive energy of women, and sometimes the lack of testertorone is in the room can provide for a more pleasant experience because women don't necessarily feel that they are competing for the attention of that one fine baller in the room. Just an observation.  Upon walking in I was immediately impressed, never have I ever in DC and maybe even ever in life have I walked into a room and seen so many individually stylish women even during NYFW!

It was such an inspiring   experience and I met some amazing women. I knew I would attend the next one, but now I'm not only just attending the next one, I am actually participating and I can't wait. I don't think I am doing this phenomenal event justice and i wish I had written this blog post before I was invited as a participant because no it may just look promotional  . But I am a firm believe in giving props where props are due and femme fatale is just one of those events that are deserving of props! Don't belie me, well  you will just have yo come and see for yourselves and the tickets are only $10!   https://www.eventbrite.com/e/winter-wonderland-ffdc-party-tickets-29302523637

From whimsical, to punk, to minimalist , to vintage chic there were so many fly women comfortable in their own style chatting and dancing and overall really just having a good time. I was blown away and so very happy I attended and that was all in just the first 5 mins. Whatever this was I knew, I was just excited to be there. I had experienced some grave disappointments that week and started not to go to this event. I just could not take another disappointing event without being close to quitting . But I was certainly happy to have rolled myself out of bed  and I haven't even told you about   the actual fashion show!
