Shopping Saturdays! District Dress Up Event at REDDZ Trading #SHOPLOCAL

I had the pleasure of attending the Guest of a Guest DC District Dress Up event at REDDZ Trading in Georgetown a couple Saturdays ago. I had never heard of REDDZ Trading before this event. It was a great event, with champagne, pizza, a make-up artist and hair stylist present doing mini-makeovers!

As a plus-size girl, I did not expect to find any clothes at the event. I prepared myself to be ok with finding a new pair of shoes, a handbag or necklace.

I was so SURPRISED to find dresses in a size 14! I was able to find three dresses and two handbags for all under $100!


Dress 1

Calvin Klein sheath dress with ruching and a small side slit. This dress fits like a glove! Don’t think it is quite work appropriate, but its perfect for other evening events where you may have to dress up! Got this dress for just $20.00!

Bar III off the shoulder, midi-dress. It is def a dress that I will have to wear shape wear because it is a body-con fit! It will be by go-to dress for the fall! It’s a must have as I shared in my last fashion post. It will be great to wear with flats, booties or even a knee-high boot! I got this dress for $20.00!

I supported the District Dress Up crew by purchasing 2 clutches from Candy Spice DC, I got both for $29.00! They will be perfect for the Fall/Winter season! Plaid is in!
