Party in Pink Fluffy Unicorn LandApril 29, 2009
You couldn’t get much more girly than this if you tried. Unless “trying” counted as redecorating your apartment entirely in Barbie-cotton-candy pink and singing to the bluebirds that tie up your apron for you. Shecky’s Girls Night Out is a shopping party extravaganza, when DAR Constitution Hall gets stuffed to the gills with racks of frilly dresses, Midori drinks, trays of teeny chocolates and, uh, “designer-inspired” handbags.
The event hits DC this week, running Thursday through Saturday nights, 5-10 p.m. Tickets ($25 in advance, $35 at the door) entitle you to a stuffed goodie bag that’s well worth the price of admission. Remember getting a goodie bag at a friend’s birthday party when you were a kid? Now imagine that goodie bag was stuffed with Rainbow Brite dolls. Yeah. It’s that good. No word on what’s in the bag this time, but previous incarnations have included full-size hair-care products, snacks, and on one memorable occasion, an entire package of AquaFresh teeth whitening strips, for that “my teeth look like Chiclets” look.
