Remember when I used to take my outfit photos while walking my dog?
I've started doing that again and I think my puppy is mocking me...

Who me? I'm innocent I swear!

Two Lies and a Truth

February CapFabb Meetup
Madewell, Georgetown

Anyone mind if I get a little honest with you today?

Below are photos of my outfit for the February CapFabb meetup and i would like to confess that I purchased this outfit (dress and vest) minutes before the meetup and changed into it in the Zara dressing room, then hid my bag behind the Madewell registerI hadn't planned to attend the meetup, because it seemed like basically a shopping party and Madewell hosts their Denim After Dark event the first Thursday of every month (next one is Feb 2) so I didnt see the point. 

When "Franky J" tweeted to ask if I was coming to the meetup it occurred to me that I had worn my rail straight cords and grey silk top, both from Madewell, to work because I sort of did want to attend; so I got all of my work done and jetted out of the office on time. I actually got to Georgetown a little early, found parking right away and took it as a sign that I should do a little window shopping first.

I remembered someone tweeting that Zara's sale was still going on so I decided to give them a second chance...remember the first thing I ever purchased from Zara was my NYE outfit, which I ordered online and when it arrived NOTHING FIT! Anywho I had much better luck in-store. I purchased these amazing leatherette pants in deep green, the vest and dress I'm wearing in the photos and saw tons of other items I need in my life...or at least my closet. 

I told the very cute man who rung me up that I'd be changing into my purchases because they were much cuter than what I had on and he agreed....RUDE, but honest. Even the fitting room attendant gave me the thumbs up after I changed, so with my previous outfit folded neatly in my Zara bag I high tailed it directly across the street and joined the CapFabb meetup.

I had a great time at Madewell, it was fun to see my blogger friends, and my sales associate Megan (great hair by the way) convinced me to try on a soon-to-be-discontinued style of jean called the High Riser...swoon! I'm a convert! I love love love the Rail Straight style, but the High Riser is my new favorite. Perfect for my hourglass figure, I wouldn't call myself curvy, but my waist is definitely smaller than my hips and the High Riser has got every inch of me covered!

Anyways, just thought I'd tell the truth and shame the devil, as they say...WHAT IS YOUR TRUTH?
