I shine, the city never looked so bright

This is a super fun, pattern playing look that I wore recently to the grand opening of Calypso St Barth’s in Georgetown! I love the fashion forward yet office style feel of the look, and the comfort factor was a major plus. The ensemble was also great for the amazing networking and mingling at the event; shout out to the lovely new ladies I met!

She’s The Giggle At A Funeral


The Only Heaven I’ll Be Sent To Is When I’m Alone With You
The weather has been nearing frigid lately, at least compared to two weeks ago when temps were still in the 90s. I keep finding myself in a uniform of a button front shirt layered with a sweater or jacket, or both!
I put together this monochromatic, print playing look for work; casual, cool, with just enough edge to feel like myself. Though I still can’t believe I’ve conquered my fear of clashing prints AND my fear of dressing conservatively. DC has a grip in me, but it’s not TOO tight! 20131027-182521.jpg20131027-182617.jpg20131027-182642.jpgjeans from TJMaxx

Man Repelling as a Ghetto Republican WRapper

**Please note this title is satirical**


Completely channeling Leandra AKA The Man Repeller with this look; pattern mixing to the extreme. The idea of pattern mixing used to send my OCD into a fit just thinking about it, but the idea has been growing on me and I must say it’s quite invigorating to dress a little “crazy” and make the people around me roll their eyes. In fact, when I came out with this on my photographer friend giggled and mentioned I look like a white ghetto republican rapper (hence the title). I went with it; threw on my favorite rap sing-a-long of Nelly’s Hot in Herre, and had some fun shooting this.
