This outfit would probably look far better with my black patent peeptoe pumps, but after wearing my suede heels all last night, my tootsies cried mercy! These were my Godsend shoes after having Emerson, bought them in black and red and they are more comfortable than my sneakers. My brown croco Sofft sandals are similar, but not as utterly plush as these. These shoes are what turned me on to Sofft and made me a lifelong fan.
And speaking of last night, the DC Fashion and Beauty Bloggers meetup was very fun! There had to be 50 bloggers at Carbon, and 10 different designers there to tell us about their lines. The bags from Diamantina were utterly amazing; there were at least a half a dozen I wanted to take home with me that very evening. And it was awesome to meet Jenny from KOLTON.J who makes the most stunning jewelery – she was wearing some of her creations and they were drool-worthy! As for Carbon, it's a gorgeous boutique that showcases chic and stylish fashion which is also eco-friendly. Local designers, upcycled pieces, organic and sustainable materials, a wonderful and fashionable mix. A must-visit in DC, right across from the Woodley Park Metro stop!
I didn't take pictures with my piddly little point-and-shoot, but a lot of fellow bloggers were there with their big fancy cameras and snapped a bunch of pics – I'll share once more come available (thanks Liz at So Much to Smile About for this pic and for co-hosting the event with Lacey from a Lacey Perspective!)
