Sleepy morning. Last night I went to fashion:district and didn't get to bed until midnight. So this outfit was pulled together pretty darn quickly. I can't believe I own a yellow sweater, but I find I wear it often, especially when I myself aren't feeling so sunny. The color is just so joyful!
This tee shirt is another recent eBay score – still had the tag on it and I think it was around $9! However upon receiving this top in the mail I realized I have a striped shirt addition and MUST. STOP. NOW. Unless I find the most adorable unique striped shirt (would really like a short sleeved one with a deeper scoop and puffed or ruched sleeves) this is it. Seriously!
So last night… I was excited to attend because I really haven't attended DC fashion events. I never admitted I was a “DC Fashion Blogger” until last summer so though I am not new to the blogging scene, I am new to the DC scene. I wasn't even planning on going, but then the brilliant Em of Metroventure offered me up a ticket, so I just HAD to go! I was excited because not only would I get to see the work by DC fashion designers, but I was going to meet some fellow DC bloggers.
I was able to meet up with Deb of Real Girl Runway for dinner before the show – we had never met but ended up chatting away immediately, barely able to even place our orders! Once at Longview Gallery, we met up with Keri from A Diva State of Mind and Jill from Presenza.
The show was pretty awesome. Before the show was a cocktail hour of sorts where we got to mingle, People Watch, sip wine, check out the fashion up close. When the show took place, we lucked out and got a spot right against the runway. Most of the fashion was amazing – so creative, well-made, innovative. Some was a bit strange. The same held true for those in the audience – I saw some phenomenal fashion, but not as much actual style. However, last night proved all the critics wrong – DC actually is a very cool, very fashionable city. That gallery was full of some really talented, creative, fashionable people and it made me proud of my city!
