Insta-Holidays

Just a quick glance at what my holiday season has been like so far. Lots of friends, holiday parties and of course Lucy (my pug).

For those of you who are not hip to the iPhone lingo, Instagram is an amazing app that helps you take creative pictures and post them to your social networks. Don’t have an iPhone? Don’t be sad, you can follow me (and subscribe to my Instagram pics) here!

Hope everyone had a fabulous weekend! :)

Lacy Lady

    

You all know I love to support local, and when Uplifting Nighties (recently featured on The Today Show) asked me if I would like to try their supportive nightie I was absolutely thrilled! Each nightie has an internal, fully lined shelf bra made from the same material as the nightie and the straps are fully adjustable so that you can adjust to your body.

When this buttery soft, pink Lacy Lady came in I was so excited to try it on. It is everything I expected and more! So comfortable and very supportive. Def two thumbs way up!

You can get your own Uplifting Nightie here!

LPM Lookbook

I had the honor of being one of four fabulous stylists (see credits below for the others) on the just released La Petite Marmoset Holiday Lookbook 2011. As a vintage lover I can’t get enough of LPM’s amazing selection (I am pretty sure I need to own every one of the sequin pieces you are about to see).

We started with four beautiful models and told them, “…girls night out on H Street. Go…” and boy did they absolutely kill it. While Katya of Spicy Candy DC and I watched the shoot after a long day of styling she said “I wanna be in there going out with them!” and I responded, “…don’t worry hunny we will.” Hehe. We seriously wanted to jump right in, and you will to… but restrain your self… at least until the launch party on Thursday.

Luckily LPM’s Founder, Katherine, is letting me show you the Lookbook RIGHT HERE! Enjoy, party on and Happy Holidays!

Insta-POTUS

Friday night J said to have a cocktail dress ready for Saturday night. Since he works for The White House, this can mean anything from an Embassy event to a dinner with colleagues. Boooooy was I wrong this time…

Saturday night we got in the cab and he said, “We are going to the Kennedy Center to see the National Symphony Orchesta… in the President’s Box.”  My reaction? “Shut up.”

It was an absolutely amazing night filled with Presidential Seals, fantastic music and champagne. Unfortunately cameras were not allowed in the box, but I used my trusty Instagram to remedy the problem.

What I wore: Vintage black silk dress, thrifted clutch, strand of pearls, deep red lips and Steve Madden Leopard Pumps.

Refinery29 DC Launch Party

Refinery29 DC is finally here! Kicked off with a light-hearted, fashionably clad event last night at Madewell in Georgetown.

See what I wore in an outfit post coming up shortly! Also, catch all the other pictures of the event I snapped here!

Pink Rocks the Runway 2011

Pink Rocks the Runway was one of the better DC fashion events I have been to in my 3+ years here in our Nation’s Capital. Held at the gorgeous International Trade Center, this event was not only fabulous but educational as well –  I learned that night that the Washington, DC area has the highest mortality rate among breast cancer patients.

While 14 stunning breast cancer survivors strut down the runway donning local designer duds – a relatively impressive cover band, Charm City Devils, cranked out some great tunes. Then of course, the moment we all were waiting not so patiently for, Christian Siriano’s Spring 2012 came down the runway. The models were clearly not the models the pieces were made for (all models were local models) but that still didn’t take away from the beauty that is Siriano’s “sea creature” inspired looks. If this is what spring will look like next year – I cannot wait.

What is better than going to a fabulous DC fashion event? Going to a fabulous DC fashion event AND running into the stunning Katie of Go Kate Shoot who said she will take your DSLR (which you still have not completely figured out yet) and take the pictures for you in all her photography expertise glory. Wow. Can a girl get any more lucky?

Below are pictures taken by the talented Katie. I got to just sit back and soak it all in. Now you can do the same…

LOFT Georgetown Grand Opening

Saturday was a gorgeous fall day in DC – the champagne was flowing, the Georgetown Cupcakes were plentiful, LOFT Georgetown was open and Lucky Magazine was in the District. What else does a DC Fashion-tonian need?

At the LOFT Georgetown Grand Opening Event Hosted by Lucky Magazine and yours truly – I had an absolutely fabulous time meeting ALP readers, helping style event attendees and seeing all of my favorite DC bloggers. I was not able to snap a bunch of pictures because I was so busy running around the event, but below are some pictures I was able to take (or have random people take for me). Also, find the details of what I wore at the end of the post.
