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. ;)

Wednesday Wish List: Lesson Learned

This weekend, while J and I were on our way to see Hangover2 in Chinatown, we stopped into Urban Outfitters to see if they had the sleeveless trench I mentioned in last weeks Wednesday Wish List (and J was on the hunt for a pair of TOMS). They did AND it was $40 cheaper then online! Woohoo! Lesson learned. Always shop in UO store versus online. Of course, I dug around a bit more looking for other good finds, and the wish list began to build… Continue reading

Happy Spring!

Yesterday was the first day of spring AND the weather is really starting to feel like it here in DC too!

What is the best way to transition your outfit from the warm, sunny afternoons to the cool, starry nights? Spring colored/printed scarfs, mixing bright colors with your winter basics, maxi skirts, layers and bright coats! Here are some pics where I am gathering my inspiration (and hopefully you will too) for my spring wardrobe from some of my favorite style bloggers and fashion sites… Continue reading

Socks & Heels

I am a Fashion Contributor (with a heavy focus on accessories) for HerExchange.com, an online women’s magazine, and wanted to share with you my latest piece. So in case you missed…

Socks & Heels

I know what you are thinking. Does this title mean that socks and heels are a thing now…together?! The simple answer is, yes. Now don’t move over to another article just yet. As you get caught up with the millions of photos taken during New York Fashion Week and even now with Milan, this trend is popping up everywhere.

For those of us that still have cold wintry weather, this trend is definitely worth a try but also be prepared to see this trend on the feet of every fashionista that passes by in the spring as well. The socks and shoes trend is not confined to heels, you will also begin to see socks with feminine flats that give a nod towards a men’s tassel-loafer.

To read the rest of the piece click here.

How do you feel about this trend? Have you tried this yet? I have here and want to continue to mix this look into my wardrobe. My next step is to go find fun flirty socks in bright spring colors. *Sigh* Is it spring yet, DC?

What Should I Wear? {Dupont Circle Edition}

I am currently working on a series called ‘What Should I Wear?’ for each area in DC for GalTime.com (I contribute as their resident DC fashionista). Below is my first post of the series.:

What Should I Wear? {Dupont Circle Edition}

As you get dressed in the morning for your day do you stop and think about where your drink/dinner plans are for after work? Here in DC this quite often depicts your outfit options. Am I going to a wine bar or a sports bar? Am I going to be with the girls or with co-workers? Will I be in Adams Morgan or Capitol Hill?

That last question is key. Unlike most areas in the United States, Washington is full of pockets of culture each with it’s own look, atmosphere, and unspoken dress code. For example, in Adams Morgan you don your best of hipster chic, around Capitol Hill you wear your newest business casual look, and in Georgetown you fight the urge not to dress like you just stepped out of JCrew catalog. What about Dupont Circle you ask?

For the rest of the post click here.
