Recap: Bitches Who Brunch Trina Turk Trunk Show Brunch

Save to Foursquare

One of my friends refers to me as her “favorite purveyor of first world problems.” Something she decided when one of my tweets complained about a delayed flight to Buenos Aires resulting in a missed polo match. You know, really awful stuff.

Near the end of last week, I was so stressed by first-world problems I couldn’t see straight. I had a huge deadline at work. I wasn’t prepared for our Bitches Who Brunch trunk show at Urban Chic—I hadn’t even picked out my outfit. Sunday was graduation and I hadn’t updated the weekend’s itinerary for my parents. My apartment was a mess, my mail unread, my postage unstamped. I missed a meeting because I had to take a taxi instead of an Uber. Most importantly, I hadn’t washed my hair in four days. The horrors.

Rushing from place to place, I opted to make a makeshift sexy side pony (inspired by Pinterest, of course). Only, my layers weren’t short enough for the desired whispiness. I grabbed a piece and I chopped. I looked down to the sink to see an enormous piece of hair– then realized that I had grabbed a fairly hefty chunk of hair and given myself bangs a la a fourth grader who got scissor-happy. I started to cry.

Only I didn’t have time to cry– I was too busy dealing with very grave concerns. So, I called upon my pal Sophie, the DC Editor of Guest of a Guest, who referred me to the kind-hearted hair wunderkinds over at the newly renamed and revamped Nival Salon and Spa of Chevy Chase. They took pity on my plight and sent me to Neven, a beautiful Croatian man who happens to be one of America’s top 10 hair stylists. This man—a magician with scissors—fit me in at 4 p.m. on Friday and turned my hair from fourth grade disaster to Victoria’s Secret style layered waves.

Ladies, you know what a good haircut can do for your luck and lifestyle—because the weekend went marvelously. The hair held perfectly through Saturday morning (and on to Sunday!) for our trunk show brunch. When I arrived at Urban Chic for our lovely little shindig, co-Bitch Becca (who is capable enough to do her own hair and can also change a tire in stilettos) was looking equally lovely in a Trina Turk aqua crochet sheath dress.

From 11 a.m. throughout the day, ladies piled in to Urban Chic’s Georgetown location. Each visitor was politely greeted by Daisy Mae, my Maltese-Shihtzu mix and the real hostess of the morning, who sat by the door ensuring all felt properly welcomed.

Girls grabbed mimosas and noshed on bagels, quiches, croissants and other heavenly fresh carbohydrates from Patisserie Poupon, everyone’s favorite French bakery that happens to be conveniently located across the street.

Ellie Golding Pandora played through the room and guests shopped, mingled, and stepped out into the sunshine on Urban Chic’s lovely back patio.

Trina Turk’s spring collection is filled with pinks, purples, corals and bright greens. We were thrilled our “Bitches’ picks were hot-sellers—and our Bitches took advantage of the 15 percent off and complimentary Trina silk scarves with purchase.

The ladies behind the Urban Chic boutique are the loveliest, brightest group of girls you’ve ever encountered. They provide helpful service and friendly advice with genuine, courteous smiles, reminding you exactly why it is so much better to shop at a boutique. (They are also impeccably dressed and free of hair debacles, to my knowledge).

It was a perfect, bright Saturday morning—it must have been the good luck from my Fairy God-Stylist.

Keep your ears peeled for more fun shopping and brunch events from the Bitches. In the meantime, stop by Urban Chic for all your summer shopping wishes.

Thanks for coming out, kittens. (You can check out all the photos from the event on the Bitches’ Facebook page).
