Fashion Agenda: Create Custom Converses and Shop for a Cause

Your guide to this week's stylish events.

Stylemakers With a Cause Campaign Launch

Who says shopping can’t be for a good cause? Through PopNod–the online shopping app that allows a portion of your purchase to benefit charities–you can shop the curated selections of ten local bloggers. By buying from their lists, donations will be made to the DC Diaper Bank, the Washington Humane Society, Big Brothers Big Sisters of the Greater Chesapeake, and more.

PopNod, campaign runs through April 30.

Customized Your Converses

As a part of Nordstrom’s Pop-In Shop–a series of “magic hour” events that are running through April 19–you can swing by the Tysons Corner Center shop to pick up a new pair of Converses and then have them customized by on-site artists. No more scrawling on your shoes with sharpies–this event will add chic designs to your favorite canvas kicks while listening to live entertainment.
