Redefining the Creative

Redefining the Creative: Featuring a white chiffon crop top with bell sleeves and drawstring detailing, dark denim high waist shorts and oversized silver hoops

So a few weeks ago, I went to a DC: District Creatives happy hour. I didn’t really know what to expect, but that was the reason I joined the group. Their description was vague: “A collaborative community of like-minded professionals and innovators.” They didn’t have a strict definition for who a creative was. As someone who often feels like my hobbies are on the fringe of being creative, I was hoping to sneak in using this ambiguity. Bloggers get reduced down to “person obsessed with social media” and coders are often viewed as robots. Neither is the first thing that comes to mind when you think of creativity. read more

Making a Statement: The Latest Sunglasses Trend

Making a statement: Featuring cat eye sunglasses paired with a white tee, red beret, and a plaid mini skirt

Ah, spring. Another change of season that brings along with it new trends for me to buy. This past weekend, I visited the Hirshhorn Museum‘s exhibit Brand New: Art and Commodity in the 1980s. It was a last minute decision based on the cherry blossom peak bloom’s postponement. My trendy spring outfit for that post was not suited for the decidedly not-spring weather, so only one item made it in–these cat eye statement sunglasses. read more

#DCFW: Style of a Gemini takes on DC Fashion Week 2018

#DCFW: Style of a Gemini takes on DC Fashion Week 2018

February 22-28th marked 2018 DC Fashion Week. I’ve only been to one other fashion show in my life. It was seven years ago, and I had come all the way across PA to watch my sister’s Senior Showcase in Philadelphia. I had done a good bit of sewing my own designs at that point, but it was nothing compared to what I saw. My sister’s collection was Afroglam to the fullest, featuring ankara fabrics before wearing daishikis became trendy. The evening of the show, I helped her into a leather mermaid dress and watched her and her friends in awe. After years of watching shows like America’s Next Top Model through the screen, the runway experience had come to life. read more

Honey Mustard

Honey Mustard: Featuring a distressed turtleneck sweater dress, a chestnut fringe clutch and tan ankle booties

It’s 2018 and my life is hectic. So much action has been packed into the last few weeks! I went home for the holidays, came back and saw friends from out of town, came back to a crazy hectic workplace and now I’m working on moving. Whew! Life comes at you fast, and my blog posts got pushed back further and further. But two weeks ago I visited CityCenterDC for winter restaurant week, and it’s so instagrammable, so I had to capture some shots! read more

Dressing for Your Office Holiday Party

Dressing for Your Office Holiday Party: Featuring a midi-length wine velvet pephem dress and gold chrome pumps

So I love going to my office’s holiday party. It’s pretty much all of my favorite things–dressing up, free food, free drinks, and dancing! However, dressing for the office holiday party isn’t always easy. My first year, I spent weeks scouring the internet and local stores for the perfect dress. I didn’t want to be overdressed and stand out in a bad way, but being under-dressed is right up there with spiders and two-headed animal crackers on my List of Things I Hate. I felt like my only option was to get it right the first time. read more

With a Cherry on Top: Wearing Fall’s Hottest Color

With a Cherry on Top: Featuring a cherry red v-neck sweater, a plaid pencil mini skirt and over the knee boots

In case you’ve been underground the last few months, the color dominating fall is cherry red. If you read my previous post on fall trends according to your zodiac sign, you know that this color was all over the Fall/Winter ’17 runways, and I’m loving it. Red isn’t an uncommon color for fall and winter, but it usually comes in the more subdued shade of wine. As fashion has gotten louder as a whole, it’s no surprise we’ve turned up the volume on red as well. read more
