Event Recap: CapFABB’s 3rd Anniversary Bash with Capwell+Co!

In only three short years, the Capital Area Fashion and Beauty Bloggers (CapFABB) has become the largest blogger network in the DC area! To celebrate this momentous occasion, CapFABB partnered with jewelry company Capwell+Co for an amazing anniversary blogger bash at Dirty Martini Lounge in Dupont.

We dined on tasty small bites, wine, and cocktails, but the real winner of the evening was being treated to some luxe arm charm courtesy of Capwell+Co. CapFABBers absolutely flipped for the bracelet bar where guests were welcomed to choose from a wide array of Capwell’s amazing baubles.

Take a look at the night’s highlights!

Tonight’s the night! CapFABB’s third anniversary party is tonight and we’re so excited to see everyone who’ll be attending. And since the event’s being held in partnership with jewelry site Capwell + Co, we thought it’d be oh so fitting to chat with the site’s brand development manager, Jessica Sturdy of Bows and Sequins. Take it away, Jessica!

How did Capwell start out? Give us the abbreviated history.
Capwell + Co’s parent company, Kenilworth Creations, has been designing and manufacturing private label jewelry for over 30 years! Capwell + Co began as a passion project for our team of designers. Instead of solely designing for other customers, Capwell was where they could design jewelry without worrying about price points, buyers, and the like.

How has Capwell evolved since its beginnings?
While a lot has stayed constant since the beginning, a lot has happened in the last year and a half! We now have a showroom in New York City, we had our first brick & mortar pop-up store during this past holiday season, we launched our first charity collaboration in January, and the list goes on.

What does Capwell look for when considering potential collaborations with bloggers?
We look for girls with a fabulous sense of style who also have a very engaged audience. A clean site and great photography is definitely a plus, too!

What’s the five-year plan for the brand?
Our major focus right now is working on partnerships and collaborations, as well as expanding our distribution.

Necklace or earrings?
Not to pick favorites, but we love a good statement necklace!

What’s your current favorite piece from the collection?
Can’t get enough of this ring! Plus, all of the proceeds go to charity.

What jewelry trends are you looking forward to for spring?
We’re loving white, lucite, and pastels!


Oh, and in case you were wondering, we couldn’t resist sharing a few of our favorite Capwell + Co pieces — what are your favorites?

- Mixed Plated Snake Chain Stranded Necklace
Purple Graduated Stone Statement Necklace
Emerald Stone Cluster Stud Earrings
Metalized Post Top Statement Earrings
Green Opal and Crystal Cuff Bracelet
Gold Geometric Rings

On January 29, the Karma Beauty Lounge hosted an intimate evening of pampering at the salon in Foggy Bottom. Approximately 25 beauty and fashion bloggers gathered at the salon for a pre-Valentine’s Day bash that featured a blow dry tutorial station, eyebrow bar with celebrity makeup artist Erwin Gomez, an oxygen booster skin bar,  and a champagne nail treatment.

Thanks to Karma Beauty Lounge, Unite, Intraceuticals and Bake Shop this beauty bash was such a success. Stay tuned for more upcoming CapFABB events as our leadership team continues to pursue not only exciting large-scale events, but also some smaller-scale events targeted around bloggers of specific niches and audiences. And as always, please let us know if there’s a particular event style you’d like to see out of CabFABB as we’re always looking to grow and improve!
