August 3, 2014

I recently sold a few bags worth of clothing that had been sitting in my closet for well over 3 months, leaving a foot (or six) of room for new Fall staples. I made my way across M Street to stock up on favorites from my trusty H&M & was immediately met with cold weather goodness. Racks upon racks of chunky sweaters, faux leather pants, black zippered booties, you guyyyyys. I’d walked into my own little personal oasis. H&M always kills it with their Fall collection but this year I’m even more excited to bag their new line & wear it religiously well into April.


Want to get your hands on a a few of your favorites from this new collection for free? Meet me at the Grand Opening of the 1133 Connecticut Avenue NW DC at 1030am this Thursday + tweet/instagram at me + @hmusa + #hmlovessummer. Freaking out from the sheer excitement of it all? Let’s break it down…

5 winners will be chosen at 11am so get there early to tweet!

The first five customers to tweet/instagram at @districtsparkle + @hmusa with the hashtag #hmlovessummer while waiting in line will win early access with style consultation and a free head to toe outfit courtesy of H&M.

Mark your calendars, fellas, ’cause it doesn’t get better than this.









Can’t wait till Thursday? Shop their new line here & let me know which yummy pieces you’re planning on adding to your Fall wardrobe.

You came, you shopped, & you conquered. A huge thank you to everyone who came out to SMU last Friday night! Between the deals, the company, & that ah-maze DJ, it was such a fun way to kick off the weekend. If you didn’t have a chance to trek across the river to meet Anna Beck’s designer, make sure to visit the site to check out the amazing hand-made gems. I’ve recently added this one to my collection & will soon be adding a few more – they’re gorgeous & perfect for any occasion!

P.S. I’m writing to you today from Portugal! Make sure you’re following me on Instagram, Twitter, & Facebook to keep up with all of my adventures.

With just enough color to pass for a Springtime look, variations of this black + white combo are all I’ve been wearing lately. Whether it’s pants, skirts, or dresses, you know me – I prefer to live in black. & this little gem I recently scooped up at Langford Market at Mosaic makes each of these looks complete!

Speaking of Mosaic, tonight is the night! Come out to Neiman Marcus’ Last Call at Mosaic for insane discounts, $15 off a purchase of $50 coupons, sparkly sips + bites, style challenges & giveaways all night! Don’t worry about RSVP-ing, just show up with your game deal face on & get ready to score some amazing steals!
