trillectro, in instagram

oh, hey girl! remember me?

we had the delightful pleasure of attending the first annual (i say first annual because i really, REALLY hope it becomes a yearly thing) trillectro festival in DC. beautiful people, amazing artists and near perfect weather. we had so much fun! here's a sampling of what the day brought, instagram stiz-yle .

Who doesn't love leopard print?! This top is one of my favorites of all time because it looks great with absolutely everything! I also stalked these pants for months until they were in my price range, then ordered them from New York. I knew I had to have them from the moment I laid eyes on them! Diane von Furstenberg is one of my favorite designers. Her pieces are so feminine, timeless, and effortless. They just make you feel like a woman! 

I wore this outfit to a fashion show I heard about through Square Root Group, LLC (http://squarerootgroup.com) . They are an up-and-coming Fashion PR group. The ambiance was gorge, and I had an awesome time, but absentmindedly neglected to take pics at the event!! I know, I know.... I stink.

you're invited to my pants party*

anyone who knows me knows i'm a sucker for a pair of attention-grabbing pants. they fool unsuspecting people into thinking i'm stylish. 

lucky for me, bright and printed pants are really having a moment. they're especially great for this transition into spring (which is seeming to come early for us here in the DC area!). here's a little roundup of some of my favorites.

when in rome....

The hubby and I took a late honeymoon and went to Rome for Valentine's Day. I have to tell you it was one of those most magnificent places I've ever been. I must confess, I've never been too interested in history, but seeing the Sistine Chapel in person completely shattered everything I ever hated about 10th grade art history discussions. This city has some of the richest history in the world, and you'd have to be a rock to not appreciate it. Needless to say, we enjoyed the trip very much, and had a very relaxing view of the city from the window..... Aaaaaaand, I got an awesome new pair of shoes!

hugh and crye event

last week, i had the opportunity to get out to a wonderful event for the gents (and the ladies, too) at shirt-maker hugh & crye's Georgetown space. cleverly called 'cocktails, fancy skirts and fitted shirts,' the event was held  so the fellers could experience well-fit shirts in the presence of cute girls and plentiful libations. genius! i've been a fan of hugh & crye for some time now, so it's great to see them enjoying such success with their business. hats off to them!

i didn't get to take many pictures due to my dying camera battery, unfortunately. i'm such a great blogger. but, gentlemen (because i'm sure there are so many of you reading right now) check out hugh & crye online here.

a compilation of late 2011 events...

capFABB meetup at madewell 

yes, we've fallen off the blog-earth, but that doesn't mean we spent our last two months of the year doing nothing at all. here's a little compliation of a couple of the events we attended late last year. better late than never, right?

celebrating at the launch of Accoutre with our bud Eliot! check out their awesome bowties-- maybe you'll recognize one of the models ;)

here's to a great 2012 (hopefully one filled with far more blog posts!)
