Dress Swap Recap

We can’t thank you enough for braving the sweltering heat to swap dresses & pretty things with us last night at 40Berkeley! All of our favorite photos from #DressSwap are now up on our Facebook page — yippee! Tag yourself, your friends, grab them for your blog recaps, and share your pics/posts with us, too!

Also, if you loved the garden courtyard at 40Berkeley as much as we do, join them for an hour-long PranaVayu Vinyasa yoga class with Bre Nourse next Wednesday night at 5:30! Tickets are $15 through Eventbrite.
