A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of attending a delightful little gathering at Eno Wine Bar in Georgetown to celebrate Aroche’s launch. I had been looking for a wine bar in Georgetown that fit my personality for quite some time & was so pleased when I found Eno, a new-to-me gem in my ‘hood. After getting over the initial excitement of this magical castle-like wine-filled fortress, I quickly dove into Aroche’s new yummy flats & was overwhelmed with the monogram goodness that surrounded me.
I was almost positive the prepster part of me was lost after graduating from a parochial high school in Northern Virginia, but these monogrammed emblazoned totes that came fresh from Aroche’s HQ made it all too obvious that the teenage collar-popper in me was still alive & kickin’. These totes lined the tables with each attendees’ monogram printed in an assortment of different color patterns. I’m telling you, the possibilities are endless. I’ve been toting mine just about everywhere since it’s nude + camel, & amazing, & lightweight, & has a zipper closure, & has my monogram on it. What’s not to love?
In between shoving my face with brie & politely chugging sauvignon blanc like the lady that I am, I saw these patent drops of goodness whizzing by. I chatted with owners, Alvaro Roche and Elsa Arcila, about their inspiration for these #desktodrinks essentials & discovered that they had the quintessential DC woman in mind while they were designing the shoe. It has a classic & polished look while getting the job done, being functional & badass. Yep, that’s a DC woman alright.
You’ll see just how versatile this tote is next week but for now, I wanted to show you just how jammed packed it can get. I’m a hoarder so this little tote is a godsend. It’s got secret, leather pockets & rolls up into a smaller bag for convenience but man does this sucker hold a ton! I waited for the right lighting to take these shots & at that same moment, someone was interested in sharing the spotlight…
Hay, mom. I think I’ll sleep right in the middle of what you’re working on. We’re still working on the whole impromptu nap time thing…
Sleeping on the job like a bum. Would ya look at that sweet face? Love of my life right there.
