A few weeks ago I attended the uber fabulous Washingtonian Style Setters party, met up with some old friends, mingled with new friends, & celebrated a handful of local style setters including friend & fellow blogger, Meg Biram.
I expected the night to be chic as ever & loaded with the DC fashion crowd which meant two things: great times & perspiration. Talk about not-so-chic. When I read the dress code, cocktail attire, I knew I wanted to have a little fun while staying faithful to my signature color at the same time. It fell in the middle of September when it was cool enough that summer dresses weren’t wholly appropriate but not cold enough for a full on fur coat. I’d originally planned to wear this number but as the weather kept getting hotter that day, I knew I was looking at a sleeveless-or-bust situation. Major kudos to this Joe Fresh faux fur vest I scooped up at Fashion Week last month that ended up rescuing me from the perils of pit stains. & a huge thank you to Washingtonian for an amazing evening.
