CapFABB Blogger Meetup: Madewell

From On January 25, 2012

Last night was the CapFABB meetup at Madewell in Georgetown. Sooo many new faces, it’s been pretty amazing watching the group grow. Had a great time mingling with friends and making some new ones. All while trying to balance my bag and a camera. What’s also amazing? Seeing a number of ladies wearing my Love,Cortnie clutches. It truly is a great feeling.

What I Wore:
BCBG Max Azria leather jacket and skirt, Express tights, Chan Luu scarf, Vince Camuto booties and the newest Love,Cortnie leather clutch (it’s not available just yet, but it’s the ONLY one so stay tuned. I’ll be listing it soon!)

Vivy of Heart Print & Style and Allix of The District.

Waverly of Pich and Roor and Carlis of Spicy Candy DC. Adore Carlis’ spotted pants.

Stephanie of Thrift and Style rocking her ‘SparkleShine’ clutch. Love that bag.

Katherine of La Petite Marmoset and I. Check out the Valentine’s Day-inspired clutch I made for Katherine’s V-Day photo shoot for her new lookbook. Can’t wait to see how she styles it.

Elise from It’s Vintage Darling in DC. Easily one of the best vintage boutiques in the area AND she’s carrying the ‘Ashleigh’ clutch. Well done, Elise 🙂

CapFABB co-founders Liz of So Much To Smile About and Lacey of A Lacey Perspective. The floral suit was insane!

Jasmine from Web Haute Jas rocking her one-of-a-kind ‘Berry Pink’ clutch. Looove how she blinged it out with sparkly brooches.

Me and Krystal of The Feisty House. Gotta love how she rocks the ‘Betty’ clutch!


A Blogger’s Night Out Event

From On December 15, 2011

Had a ball with some blogger friends at the Blogger’s Night Out event at Bloomingdale’s last night. Also met some new faces which is always a pleasure. Lots of photos being taken, cute little finger foods and lots of fashion-talking is to be expected. I wore these amazing pleated (and glittery) H&M shorts. I saw them in the store and chose to build my entire outfit around this one piece. Paired them with a silky top from Urban Outfitters, BCBG Max Azria tights, jewelry from J.Crew and Nine West colored-suede heels. Definitely a good time as usual.

*Sorry for the crappy photos in advance*

A Lookbook Party at Violet Boutique

From On December 9, 2011

Last night was such a good time. I love getting dressed up and hanging out with fashionable people. I also got to put some faces to some blogs I visit frequently, as well as, meet some new ones. The Lookbook party was held at Violet Boutique in DC. It was such a cute store, full of adorable clothes and accessories. I finally got to wear my BCBG Max Azria dress too! I’ve only had it for about two years lol. It was originally knee-length, but I got it shortened. So glad that I did.

Ms.Katherine of La Petite Marmoset herself. The party was really to celebrate the launch of her new lookbook. Check out her vintage pieces in her Etsy shop. Did you notice that she is also wearing her ‘SparkleShine’ Love,Cortnie clutch? Shop it here!

Some pieces from her collection. The knit skirts were my favorite.

How cute are her booties? Absolutely adorable.

Carlis from Spicy Candy DC and my sister Ashleigh from The Daileigh.

Waverly from Pich & Roor and Lacey from A Lacey Perspective. Lacey’s La Petite Marmoset vintage beaded skirt was ridiculous. I couldn’t stop staring at it!

Rocking my black and white striped BCBG Max Azria dress with my ‘Glittering Gold’ Love,Cortnie clutch. Shop it here!

Spicy Candy DC‘s other half, Katya, and Naseya from The Seventh District. A lot of adorable leopard prints were in the room.

Lauren in a La Petite Marmoset vintage fur that she looked amazing in. In went home with her.

I spotted one of my Love,Cortnie ‘Ashleigh’ clutches under the arm of the lovely Keri from A Diva State of Mind. Shop it here!

Some stylish ladies that were in attendance, along with Naseya.

Denisio from The Ravenous Creator. Her skirt was pretty amazing.

Vivi from Heart,Print & Style, Jenni from Comme Coco and myself.


Lucky Magazine & LOFT Event

From On October 24, 2011

I had been looking forward to this event since I had heard about it. Lucky Magazine, my favorite mag by the way, had teamed up with the LOFT for the grand opening of their store. Traffic was terrible getting to Georgetown and parking was a pain, but once I got to the store I kind of forgot about it. Kind of. I walked in and a DJ was playing music in the window display at the front of the store. The place was packed. The interior designing was amazing and the merchandising looked pretty impeccable for the crowd of people that was there. There were people going around serving champagne and mini cupcakes. It was really nice.

You were also given the opportunity to style a look from head to toe by grabbing what you liked, then putting it on in the fitting room and then you would come out to a photographer that would snap a picture of your look. I skipped that part because the line was way too long. So I mingled with my CapFABB bloggers and that’s always a good time.

What I wore:
Express blazer, Anthropologie pants, Jessica Simpson shoes (similar style here), J.Crew tee, Gap belt

I wore my Love,Cortnie ‘Ray Limited Edition’ clutch. Get it here! Can you spot who wore the ‘Ashleigh’ clutch? Also available here!

Ponchos were prominent throughout the store
