Right now the sun is shining in the Nation's Capital but this morning was pretty gray and rainy. Searching and I cannot find a ray of sun…
This is the outfit I wore to my friend Shelly's rehearsal dinner – the $24/originally $118 Max Studio dress, with my Ann Taylor stretchy belt with the patent buckle and my Sofft black patent T-straps. With it I am wearing these red ball earrings that my mom bought me when she went on an African safari a couple years ago. The dress washed great – I adore matte jersey. Threw it in the washer on the gentle cycle with a bit of Crunchy Clean diaper detergent (doesn't suds up like regular detergent so great for delicates and low-spin cycles), hung it to dry and it was ready to wear the next morning!
I did the makeup in the same manner than I did on Friday night, and since it's not hot out, it has held up quite nicely all day. I did a quick touchup of lipstick before lunch but otherwise have looked fresh and polished.
Speaking of lunch, we had a business lunch today at Founding Farmers and it was awesome! I had heard amazing things about this restaurant and was not disappointed! If you are in DC you should check it out!
