We Know That Our Hearts Are Just Made Out of Strings

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!

Weekend Shopping and fun!

This weekend was a blast! Not only was my wonderful boyfriend visiting, but I had a photoshoot, got alot done, and spent quality time with some people close to me.

Here’s a few images from Saturday’s photoshoot (though it had little to do with clothing/fashion).

As you know, after that my Saturday was spent outdoors browsing the ‘hood with Cody. We checked out a local thrift store, where I found an AWESOME sequined shirt…for only $10! (for outfit info click here)

Since Cody has never been to the infamous Cafeteria with me, we went Sunday morning, along with my hairdresser/friend Sarah. As always, the mac n cheese spring rolls were a gift from god. I ended up trying a bunch of new drinks off their cocktail menu as well!My first drink was a Lychee Lavender, while Cody sipped a deliciously prepared Jameson and Ginger. I recently downloaded a new photo app for my iPhone, as you’re about to notice. It’s called Instagram and you take a picture and there’s, like, 15 filters you can add to it to give the image a different feel!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We ventured from Cafeteria to Union Square, and then down to Waverly Place for some much needed American Apparel. I bought an awesome ring at Aldo, that bodysuit I’ve been lusting after FOREVER from AA. Then, today (Monday) I went to Sephora and Macy’s, picking up some Kat Von D Tattoo Liner (pretty much the best eyeliner besides gel/cream) as well as a Material girl shirt and Steve Madden dress.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Also tried on a couple of tops that I didn’t get. The leopard chiffon was by Ginger G I think? And this amazing asymmetrical ripped knit is by Kensie. I’d like them both, very much!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Since it’s spring break I will have plenty of time to work with these new pieces and can’t wait for all the updates this week!

Hope everyone is enjoying their breaks, or whatever they are doing!

Patricia Field’s Valentine’s Ball

After the IFB conference and workshops I went home and immediately changed to go to the Patricia Field Valetnine’s ball. I got there early to take some backstage pictures of the models getting ready, hair and make up and such. All of the models were professional dancers from various companies around New York City. Make up was by Llamasque, who I LOVE for their pigments. THe event was co-hosted by the fabulous DJ Cassidy, and sponsored by (in addition to Llamasque) Trojan Vibrations, Cafe Bustello, and Belvedere Vodka, YUM!

Around 10 pm the party was starting. Belvedere had reps making drinks at bars lining the entire wall of the Captiale’s ballroom. The model/dancer’s were go go dacing all around, and guests were coming in for photo ops dressed like the club kids of her demographic. I took my photo taken, took some with some other fabulous guests, and mingled about. The party was also in celebration of Patricia’s birthday so she was merrily drinking and looking fabulous. Thankfully I managed to get into the VIP section, meeting up with Richie Rich, Angela Simmons, and a number of fabulous people.
