City in Bloom - Retail Window Competition


EXCITING NEWS!

You know how much we love collaborating with our local creative community. DC is full of inspiring people and events, and this one has us oh-so-excited! :)

Mariella has been selected as one of the judges for the First City in Bloom Retail Window Competition! That's right! DC dresses in pink and smells like cherry blossoms during the months of March and April each year. This time we are partnering with the National Cherry Blossom Festival  to help spread the beauty and celebrate the creativity of our stores during the first ever retail window competition.

Inspired by the holiday window displays in New York, the competition will have a distinctively DC feel using the theme “DC in Springtime”. Follow Mariella on her Instagram stories tomorrow to see the work of each competitor and vote for your favorites!

And don't miss the peak bloom! You can follow the bloom watch in here.

TOGETHER WE GO FURTHER

We met last year. And clicked immediately. When women with strong energy get together, magic happens. 

Shannon and Teri put together the first #likeabossparty in 2014 so creatives and entrepreneurs had a space to get together, network and start planning awesome things for the upcoming year. Kerra and I joined them this year, and we all hosted this amazing event!

Being an entrepreneur has taught me so many invaluable lessons, but the most important one is this one: "If you want to go fast go alone, if you want to go far go together". I'm a feminist, and I believe in women's energy in all spheres. Luckily, and after searching a lot, I found a fabulous network of women in DC who are hustling to make their ideas and dreams happen. All of them have their talents, and I'm convinced that combining them only brings good things.

The #likeabossparty was a celebration of talented women! We had so much fun, and the most amazing collaborators! Please see all tags in the pictures for details. All of them are amazing - and of course, they are mostly women ;) 

I couldn't be happier with the results! And I'm extremely grateful for my lady bosses around. So, here's to every one of them and their projects (picture the glass of bubbly I'm holding now) and to you! May this New Year bring us much more energy and magic. Let's hustle.

Thanks for passing by! Happy Holidays! xx.
