Event: TARI x FADGeorgetown

booth32So, like I previously mentioned, I’ve been hard at work for the past month or so working on an event for my current job. Well, last Friday night was the moment of truth. It was pouring rain; I mean POURING. The store had minimal foot traffic all day and by 5pm my nerves were a mess as the T-Time loomed closer. Would anyone show up? Would we make any sales? Would we even achieve a “party” atmosphere? I was a wreck.

While we got off to a semi-late start, the party picked up and my nerves were eased. Bloggers, media, and shoppers alike wandered into my store, taking the eCruiser straight to our door. Everyone gawked at the bumping soiree, while other events were canceled or subpar. It was an overwhelming experience, knowing all my hard work had paid off and then some.

Booth4 Booth7 booth28 booth35 booth38The fashionable event was hosted by E of District of Chic and Krystin of BeLoudBeYou, two fabulously sweet and oh so stylish local DC bloggers I’m so happy to have had the chance to work with. Ofcourse, the TARI team was there including our owner, manager, and operations manager, Tamika of MyDesignerDreams. With complimentary cupcakes, tea, and cocktails, as well as sweet tunes by my friend Caleb L’ Etoile and the lovely photobooth images by my friend Brian, not to mention my beau and his BFF Twinning and Bartending, there was plenty of fun to be had!

I wore an H&M dress with H&M booties, instead of my planned cream and white Erin Fetherston dress with cream platform pumps…somehow black seemed much more fitting for the weather, so no regrets.

Saturday Festivities: DC VegFest

20130929-134738.jpg

I’m a total foodie. A vegetarian foodie. With a minor dairy allergy. So I’m basically “mostly” vegan.
This past Saturday I made my way to the DC Veg Fest, being as healthy as can be and biking all the way to Yards Park to take in all the wonder of vegan faire and ethically and morally sound companies.
Walked around, sampled food, pet  pups….
Anyway, read more about my adventures and experience of DC VegFest HERE on my pal Holly’s blog, Traveling Pink Lips.

On to the ensembles:

I loved my casual cool outfit; the colors and accessories were perfect for fall, while the shoes were comfortable for walking and the jeans, which are so soft, were great for all the biking! Even my boyfriend was dressed nicely, in a J. Crew button up and his own vintage Levi’s denim jacket! (Yes, I forced him to pose for me) I loved the whole setting of The Yards Park; beautiful bridges, waterfront, and waterfalls!? Talk about a perfect view!

Crystal, Maybach, Diamonds on Your Timepiece

SaraSLarge-3
Life in DC is ever-changing for me; I crave stability. I’m getting to that age of settling and nesting, yet don’t yet have the means or life stability to accomplish this. So I keep on trucking, faking it till I make it, or something like that. Just Keep Swimming, I tell myself, and feign everything I desire to be true. I apologize for the lack of updates; it’s hard meeting people in this judgemental and cliquey city as an outsider, whether that be quality photographers for my bloggy here, or friends to dine and drink with. It’s never been this hard; a social life is just another thing for me to fake till I have right now. At least I can look good while I do it.

Freedom Hangs Like Heaven Over Everyone

Fun, inspired, and almost completely vintage look that I absolutely love to wear! The dress was handmade for my grandmother in Russia many, many years ago, and the Liz Claiborne hat was also inherited from her. I purchased the vest from a thrift shop literally about 10 years ago, and still find ways to wear it!
The spiked bracelet is from TopShop, the ring is from Francesca’s Collection, and the bangles are from various shops, including Target!

We Know That Our Hearts Are Just Made Out of Strings

IMG_7744IMG_7755
A second post from the whirlwind that has been my settling into life in the DMV! It’s been tedious…It’s been work. I’ve been unpacking, working, traveling, trying my best to explore and socialize, et cetera. What I’m craving most? A nice, relaxing evening involving a chill bean bag (remember those!?) and a movie with a bottle of wine, or a champagne cocktail. Alas, there’s much to be explored as I’m on the hunt for the perfect blog photographer, group of friends, brunch restaurant, lunch spot, dinner diggs, quality man; amongst maintaining my life at my new “home” with friends and new job. Confused/overwhelmed? So am I. These photos were shot by an area photographer, Kevin, who’s work can be found on his site here. He’s got a great eye and some great ideas, so I’m hoping you’ll be seeing more of his work up here!
