Where do you live? Washington, DC
Where are you from? Baltimore, then Northern Virginia with a brief stint in Bloomington, Indiana for undergrad
What did you major in? Criminal Justice + 4 related minors
Are you a full-time blogger? No, I work a ’9-5′ federal government job
Why did you start your blog? I love my day job - it’s what I went to school for. But the field lacks a certain creative aspect & I found myself wanting to create content rather than sift through Pinterest & keep it all to myself. I’ve spent the majority of my life in this city & I find that women could use a little sartorial
kick in the pants inspiration every once in awhile. Just because the nature of your job is stuffy doesn’t mean you have to be. That’s where District Sparkle comes in
But DC is so not stylish. Why aren’t you in NYC? Easy there, hater. Not only is DC my home, it’s where my dream job is. I’m fortunate enough to have happened upon it relatively early in life & while I have a sick obsession with fashion, I’ll always love my day job just a little bit more
How do you describe your style? Overly accessorized moto chic meets easy + professional office attire. That’s a thing, right?
Who’s your favorite designer? Marissa Webb
What staple should every woman own? A great fitting sheath dress
What’s your favorite piece in your closet? A faux leather jacket I found on super sale & wear all the time. It’s one of those pieces I always feel my best in
What’s the one thing you can’t leave home without? My iPhone
What’s your guilty pleasure? Watching SVU reruns while devouring chipotle cheddar pretzel crisps
Do you have any roommates? I have one; His name is Wendell & we’re constantly bickering about how he always leaves his toys out. Men.
What’s your holy grail beauty product? Oribe Apres Beach Spray
What’s your skincare routine? I swear by M-61
Who does your hair? Hayley at Zoe Salon (Fair Oaks, VA)
