ALP Featured: Washingtonian

I am still in utter shock that this interview even happened. When people congratulate me on it, I kind of freeze up. When the Washingtonian tells you they love you, I guess you are officially a Washingtonian. After three years of living here I feel like I just got the “ok you really are a Washingtonian now” nod.

I was interviewed by a fan of the blog, fellow fashionista and the woman who has my dream job – Sarah Zlotnick of the Washingtonian’s style section. It was so much fun reminiscing on all that has happened in a year of this crazy, amazing blogging world. Also, Sarah put together a killer slideshow of some of her favorite looks from my outfit posts, she said that was her favorite part because she got to dig through my blogs archives.

It is so exciting that the fashion blogging world is really beginning to feel the love from Washington. Next up… getting on the Washingtonian cover. ;)

It’s All in the Details…

Accessories are important and becoming more and more important every day. They can completely change the look of an outfit, and women like the idea of having a wardrobe that’s versatile. For instance, a strong piece of jewelry can make a simple outfit look elegant.

Insta-Fall

Above is a summery of my weekend in Instagram pictures. It basically consisted of shopping the amazing Columbus Day sales, watching football and dinner dates. Not a bad weekend, huh? And if that cape in the second picture looks familiar, it’s because it is from my last Friday Fun post. I found it at J Crew on sale! I found the last XS and was literally jumping up and down in the dressing room…. really. I have no shame when it comes to an amazing find.

Anthropologie Opens in Penn Quarter

When I found out that an Anthropologie was coming to 950 F St, NW in Penn Quarter I was excited to see what the store would look like since Antro is known for their urban look. I was thrilled to get an invite to their preview event that was last night, so I put on my best Anthro look and headed to the store. Although I am not a huge Anthro fan, I must say, I was in love with their print mixing and cozy coats. The store felt like being inside someones chic, rustic home. It is open to the public today!

While sipping on some delish fall cocktails I snapped some pictures of the store…

Liz of So Much to Smile About looking adorable as usual.

The line for the fashiontonians to try on their Antro digs.

CapFABB October MeetUp

I had THE most amazing time last night at the Capital Area Fashion & Beauty Bloggers (CapFABB) meet up. As a co-founder of the organization, I was literally in awe of what this group has become. What was once Liz of So Much to Smile About and I’s excuse to get some of our favorite bloggers together for a cocktail hour has become a group with approximately 200 bloggers. Wow. Sometimes I just need to step away from the crowd at our meet ups and take it all in… and this night was one of those nights.

With the sensational BrandLink DC helping us host the event I knew this was going to be a fabulous night. Add on top of a killer co-host that the event was held at Nectar Skin Bar and BAM… that makes for an insanely perfect night of fashion, beauty and conversation. Oh, and not to lay it on, but every blogger in attendance also got to sip on Voli Light Voldka cocktails and this low-cal voldka is not even in stores yet! Yes, we were spoiled rotten. I was also going to mention the insanely fantastic goodie bags we got to leave with, but I thought at that point I would be just bragging. Hehe.

Want to see what I wore to the event and the details of how to get it? Head over to my outfit post here!

All in all, words can’t describe how absolutely fantastic last night was, so hopefully pictures will do…

I was obsessed with this chandelier in the entrance.

A pedicure room for a queen… and some of her fabulous friends.

Another chandelier to obsess over.

This Voli Voldka was seriously so delicious! Cannot wait for it to be available in stores!

Want a mani? How do you say no?
