The second annual Shop the Capital series of pop up shopping events launched last Thursday, and this Thursdays, those who stop by the Renaissance Dupont Circle Hotel will have the opportunity to shop the menswear selection created in partnership with blogger community, CapFabb.

Brunch and Shop With the Bitches Who Brunch

Is there a better way to spend your weekend than eating brunch and shopping? The Bitches Who Brunch would argue there isn’t, and they’re prepared to prove it this Sunday at Long View Gallery (1234 9th St., NW) with a brunch provided by Heirloom Catering. South Moon Under will have a pop up store set up for guests to browse fall fashions while sipping the bottomless whiskey cocktails, Bloody Marys, and mimosas. The brunch will run from noon to 3 PM on September 20, and the $50 tickets can be purchased at Nvite.

Fashion Swap With Fashion Fights Poverty

Revamp your wardrobe for a good cause with a fashion swap hosted by Fashion Fights Poverty. Clear out old cloths, shoes, and accessories from your closet and bring them to Impact Hub DC (419 7th St., NW, 3rd Floor) on Sunday. Once a pile has been made, all participants will have a chance to rummage for “new to you” items, and the rest will be donated to the Goodwill of Greater Washington. The swap will run from 1 to 4 PM on September 20. RSVP on Eventbrite and bring an item of clothing to attend.
