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.

Me & Deb from Real Girl Runway

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

All my pics sucked from the event – silly little point-and-shoot. Seriously, this was the best one – at least it shows where I was standing!

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!

    I know I’m behind the times, but I just started following you last week.  I am wearing my version of this outfir today and I love it.  Black slim leg pants, black and white striped top and yellow sweater (all B.Republic).  I didn’t have a scarf that suited, so I’m just wearing a longg necklace.  And red booties.  Thanks!

    This is one of my favorite outfits that I’ve seen you post. You look great and I love the yellow + stripes combination.

    I really love most things about this outfit, but the only thing I don’t like — and I’m not quite sure why — is the black boots with those dark blue jeans. I have an aversion to navy and black together, so perhaps that is why. I know you already have a significant pop of color in the outfit in your cardigan but I’d like to see a contrasting colored boot or shoe with the dark jeans. Aside from that, I think you look amazing. I can’t believe how good your body looks — you have obviously been working hard at it! 🙂

    Love this outfit! I have a striped shirt addiction too (I bought another one today) so you’re in good company.

    I’m wearing something similar today, dark jeans, striped top, coral cardigan and sky blue scarf! Now I just need to find a yellow cardigan…
    I can also relate to your experience about meeting a blogger friend face-to-face for the first time – and hitting it off instantly. I love that about my fashion blogger friends, we have so much in common, it’s like meeting an old friend when you finally do connect in person 🙂

    Not to be an enabler, but Old Navy has stiped cotten/spandex short-sleeved tees with a u neck in the front and the back. I almost bought one yesterday but couldn’t justify spending $17 on one. They’re on sale online though.

    This is a fantastic outfit — loving the colors and mixed prints! I need to incorporate more of this in my life! 🙂 Have a nice weekend!

    Great use of prints. The scarf and the striped blouse – perfect. Glad you had fun at the event. Can’t wait to finally meet you next Thurs. :oD
