RTR x Georgetown

WHAT I WORE: tip to toe!

My typical New Year's Eve week includes a mad dash to Georgetown where I blow my entire budget on an expensive outfit I'll wear for one night and stuff in the back of my closet. This year since Rent the Runway has opened a store in Georgetown I have no excuse for a fashion emergency.

Union Market District


Last Friday after work I headed over to the Union Market District to check out the many events happening in this part of city. 

First up was a paired down Thread, a curated pop-up shop featuring emerging clothing and accessories brands that debuted last Christmas. Held at Dock 5, an event venue just up the road from Union Market, this year's event featured DeNADA a cozy knit accessories company (hello #sweaterweather), Billy Reid a classic Americana brand, which has partnered with both JCrew and Coach, and Bang shoes whose profits are used to fund entrepreneurs around the world.

Lined up along 5th street, NE were a few mobile fashion booths where visitors could shop inside of an airstream trailer or DIY in a studio on wheels

As I made my way further down the street I stopped at Bidwell for a cocktail party hosted by Tracey Lomrantz Lester, Editorial Director at Gilt. She was in town for the twice-yearly GiltCity Warehouse Sale. 

Over all it was another amazing night in DC!

Veteran's Day in DC

WHAT I WORE: tip to toe!

scarf | sweatshirt | thermal | pants

Veteran's Day is such a great holiday, honoring those who have and are currently serving in the United States Military. Living in Washington, DC you sometimes get to do some exclusive things like bowling at the White Housemeeting a foreign dignitary or stopping by the monuments at 3am after a night out (this is my favorite thing to do when my friends come to visit). 
This year for Veteran's Day HBO filmed a live concert in Washington, DC down on the National Mall. In the shadow of the Capitol Building stars like Bruce Springsteen, Dave Grohl and Rihanna sang songs in honor of our nation's military servicemen and women.
On an unseasonably warm November night we set up our blankets, brought snacks from home and enjoyed an amazing night under the stars. I feel so lucky to be a DC native, especially on nights like this one!
