Fabb Girls Club x ALDO Accesories




This past Sunday, I attended an event hosted by the FABB (Fashion and Beauty Bloggers) Girls Club at the local ALDO accessories store.  Truthfully, I was not that amped to go, because I can admit that I am not a big ALDO fan, accessories or shoes.  One, I hate Aldo shoes just because I think they are overpriced to not have any leather shoes; Two, I like to purchase my jewelry from independent designers, vendors at flea markets, and from thrifting because I like to be original.  Hence the reason I was not that excited.  But I want to support local bloggers in DC so I went prepared to only show my support and leave.  But I ended up staying over an hour and a half.  Who knew that ALDO accessories had so many cute items to purchase?!  I was completely overwhelmed by the choices (I like shopping experiences like that), and I was pleasantly surprised at the offerings.  I was able to talk to other stylish women, see some of the trends in accessories (you know I am always a few years behind), and get some great makeup tips from the Mary Kay representative that was there.  Here, a few pics from the event, and a good lesson in stepping outside your own imposed box...

The gracious, most accommodating staff ever, the ladies from Aldo Accessories


The cutest headwrap, right?!


I purchased these in the hopes that I will like earrings again...

And these...


Looking at this cutie's fresh Mary Kay makeup application wondering how I can duplicate it!

Not big enough, or bug eyed enough


I know you can only see the top part of my outfit, but this is what I wore, Asos Curve Onesie with Mesh Details.  You know I love a good one-piece jumpsuit
