Me: “Hold on babe, my phone is ringing.”
J: “Are you kidding?! Do you want me to keep shooting?”
Me: “Sure.”
My friend on the phone: “Hey. What are you up to?”
Me: “Taking some pics for the blog… like right now as I speak. HAHA!”

Yup. That is what actually happened to capture that second to last picture. It may not be the best picture of me ever, but I could not help but include it.

J took these shots for me before we headed to our favorite mexican restaurant, Lauriol Plaza, for our date night. This was my first time out in the real world since my week of being sick with the flu (of course it had to happen during DC Fashion Week). My cabin fever had me itching to go out and do something… anything.

I am so sad I missed all of the DC Fashion Week fun, but you will definitely find me at the District Sample Sale tonight! I am so excited! Goooodbye cabin fever! Hello, fall in this nation’s beautiful capital.

Wednesday Wish List

Below are just a few things on the top of my wish list…

Michael Kors Metallic Gold Jet Set Ipad Case
I have the iPad, now I just need something to give it A Lacey Perspective touch and this MK case would be it! There are SO many fashion bloggers out there drooling and posting about this gem, like this post here, that it is a no brain-er to place this at the very top of my list. Click on the pic above to see the other colors/patterns it comes in. Yummy.

Pleated Leopard Maxi Skirt {Forever 21}
I have already told you about my new obsession with maxi skirts (one of the it items for the spring) and while digging for one to call my own I stumbled upon this beauty. Too keep warm in this (until I can wear it in the spring with tan peep toe pumps and a light silk top) I will have to rock black tights, black booties, red silk top, my gold MK watch and a gold necklace. Tres chic.

Chrysanthemum’s The Word Dress {Mod Cloth}

This might just be the perfect Valentine’s Day dress. It will definitely stand out amongst all of the LBDs, be holiday appropriate (without having to wear red or hot pink), and with a faux fur coat I will be warm and look fabulous! Oh… and did I mention it is on sale?! Yes, please.

A Hostess with U Street Chic

After a fabulous weekend full of vintage shopping (so many amazing finds I will blog about later this week), mani/pedis, and biding adieu to football season, I feel refreshed and ready to start the week. But before I begin my week I had to write about my hostess that escorted my girls and I to our table at Marvin‘s for brunch yesterday morning. Quick plug – their cheesy grits are to die for and the mimosas are fantastic!

This girl was effortlessly U Street chic with her long dark hair, blunt bangs, petite stature, and beautiful collection of vintage clothing she was rocking from head to toe. As she walked my gals and I to our table I could not help but notice that everything she was wearing was a different texture yet the whole outfit just worked. I will try to recreate it below…

U Street Chic Hostess
Want to see a couple other outfits I created and see some specifics of the look above? Go to my Polyvore page here.

The vest above does not do her unique, much shorter, feminine vest (note- she wore the vest unbuttoned) justice but the whole ensemble looked like she just walked from her favorite vintage store to work. The maxi skirt, which is a silhouette that you will find everywhere in the newly distributed spring look-books, was whimsical, then the contrast of the heavy braided belt and lastly with a pop of color (her flats) below was absolute perfection. The denim button down, also another spring must have, reminded me I need to find one to add to my closet ASAP.

This girl may never know it but she has become my inspiration for gracefully transitioning my winter wear to spring chic this season when I am out and about these February/March weekends. Thank you chic Marvin’s hostess!
