We are happy to announce that SNOBSWAP
officially debuted in DC at TARI
last Thursday! We also celebrated TARI
, our first premier partner, for selling its most coveted items on snobswap.com
! Located in the heart of Georgetown, TARI
is an upscale consignment boutique that was the perfect venue for DC's most fashionable to swap, shop, and sip.
Guests included celebrity Mary Amons of The Real Housewives of DC
, Miranda Smyre of NBC Washington
, Yoddit Gebreyes
of Talk of DC
, and bloggers A Diva State of Mind, Clarendon Moms
, Healthy Glow
, and the founders of CapFABB
(Liz Fassbender of So Much to Smile About
and Lacey Maffettone of A Lacey Perspective
To kick off the swap, we gave a toast with Mary Amons
and with TARI's
owner Sara Mokhtari and managing partner Alida Sanchez. Unswapped items were donated for sale on snobswap.com
with all proceeds to go to local charity Labels for Love
, founded by Mary Amons
. Labels for Love
raises funds and awareness for women's and children's charities through fashion events.
Throughout the night, guests enjoyed lychee cocktails and tasty hors d'oeuvres by 42 Degrees
, delicious cake pops by Baked by Yael
, and browsed the amazing selection of designer items in TARI
. Our photographer, Tri Nguyen
, took photos of guests showcasing their amazing style, wearing beautiful vintage pieces and hot designers such as Gucci, Halston, Tom Ford, Diane von Furstenberg, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Karen Millen, and more! At the end of the night, there were three giveaways including tickets to Wine Riot in DC
and the Washington DC International Wine & Food Festival
! The last giveaway of the night was a Marc Jacobs handbag that went to the elated winner Lasheka Brown.
We had the best time celebrating with family, old and new friends, and our SNOBSWAP team. This night was definitely one to remember as we made our official debut to DC's fashionistas as the premier online designer market to swap, shop, sell, and save! Check out pictures of the launch event below. Cheers!
