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.


New To My Love,Cortnie Etsy Shop!

I finally found gold sequin fabric! Yay! I have been searching for a couple of weeks. I found the silver and black sequin fabric while searching, but I was really looking for gold. So on Black Friday (I hope everyone enjoyed their holiday!) I went to pick it up. I rushed home, immediately hopped on my sewing machine and put it together. I love the black and white striped lining. Check out the Glittering Gold clutch here!

Be sure to check out the Love,Cortnie Mentions tab at the top of my blog. There you’ll find different blog posts of people that have styled one of my clutches. For those that own one or plan to purchase one, you are/will be included in the list. If I’ve missed one of your looks just send me an email!

New to my Love,Cortnie Etsy shop is the SparkleShine clutch! With the holidays quickly approaching, it only seemed appropriate to make a few using sequin fabric. The best part about it? The sequin discs are black on one side and silver on the other side. If you swipe your hand across the fabric you can wear it either way! Oh, and it’s also lined in bright pink! Shop it here!


Dirty Chai

From On November 3, 2011

I had been obsessing over this sheer silk top for the longest. It comes in this color I like to call dirty chai and was also available in light gray and in teal. I originally wanted the teal color, but earth tones call my name. Plus it went on sale and was an extra percentage off. Easy choice. I bought it in a size medium instead of my normal XS so I could also wear it as a tunic if I so chose to. BCBG head-to-toe. Sheer black leggings are a fun spin on the normal opaque black styles. Added my leopard print Love,Cortnie bag to spice things up a bit.

Excuse the evil look. The glare from the sun was almost blinding.

What I wore:
BCBG Max Azria silk blouse (similar style here and here), BCBG Max Azria leggings (similar style here), BCBGirls heels (simialr style here), Love,Cortnie ‘Ashleigh’ clutch (get it here!), J.Crew ring
