Once Upon a Spring Cleaning…


Recently I’ve been suffering from I-hate-everything-in-my-closet syndrome. This is due in no small part, I’m sure, to the fact that some of the things in there are holdovers from high school. So the other day I bit the bullet (and downed several glasses of sparkling wine) and did a major closet edit. I swear, I now only own one sweater.

It’s a good idea to ask yourself tough questions about what you own while you sort (Am I kind of embarrassed that I own this? Do I really wear “clubbing” shirts anymore?). Another question: Did I wear this to prom?

While many young Washington women hold on to dresses from both high school and college and pull them out for the occasional format event, they often end up looking like what they are: your senior year prom/sorority formal dress. Ladies, it’s time to let go. So tonight after work, go home, pluck that dress out of the closet, and put it in a bag to donate to Once Upon a Prom, a local nonprofit established to provide prom dresses to girls in DC, MD and VA who might otherwise be unable to afford one.

When you bring the dress (must be from 2000 – present and in good, clean condition) TOMORROW between 5 – 8 to Georgetown’s Urban Chic location, you’ll receive 30% off a purchase (you need to give that hanger something to hold, right?). You’ll get to sample food from Restaurant K by Alison Swope and, best of all, make a local girl feel and look wonderful. If you can’t make it to the event, you can still drop off a dress between now and March 30 to receive a 20% discount.
