Sweet, Sassy, Fun and Sophisticated a DC 18th St Boutique – Violet Boutique Look book Party

VIOLET BOUTIQUE opened their doors Thursday night for an amazing Summer Look book Party that brought out the who’s who on the DC fashion scene.


With brands like Everly, Lush, Ark & Co, Solemino and recreations from La Petite Marmoset Vintage we couldn’t help but notice the timeless and colorful collections.

Owner Julie Egermayer strives to keep Voilet Boutique affordable for everyone with jewelry under $20 and sundresses to die for ranging from $35 – $45.

I was honored to be a part of this memorable event! Julie along with the fabulous Spicy Candy DC duo asked me to key the make-up of Violet Boutique’s Summer Look book using my line INK Cosmetics. I worked along side W Salon Hair Master Lauren Tenney and cultivated a fresh, fun and easy look. Make-up combined a subtle natural eye with pops of hot pink lips to complement the bold colors in the clothing and beach babe hair. The phenomenal images were captured by the amazingly talented TPWP!

To sum of the event…

Jam-packed, fun, fabulous fashionable people, custom look book cookies, cocktails and boutique must-haves that will keep you coming back for more!
