For our latest Bubbles and Bloggers meet-up, we spent an afternoon overindulging in bottomless margaritas, mimosas, and chips and salsa at Auga 301 in Navy Yard. With my love for Mexican cuisine it was almost shocking that I’d never been there before – I’ll have to edit my Mexican restaurant roundup to include it!
Originally, the event was supposed to be hosted at Nomad Yard, a vintage boutique in NoMa, so it was decided that we would all dress in our favorite vintage or vintage-inspired garb. Due to unforeseen circumstances, the event had to be moved but we kept the vintage theme – it was quite the scene at Auga 301. We even had one of the other guests dining at the restaurant come up to our table and ask what sort of event was going on because it was like a fashion show watching us walk into the restaurant!
I’ve been having a love affair with 70s-inspired clothing for the past year or so, so it was a no-brainer that I’d channel the decade for my look. I picked up this jumpsuit at a boutique on our recent trip to Savannah and with its funky print and bell sleeves, I could pretty much be an extra from That 70s Show. I paired the jumpsuit with an actual vintage belt that I snatched from my mom’s closet a few years back and added a bit of modern flair with a choker and peep-toe booties.
I only own one true vintage frock (a stunning cocktail dress from the 80s) but I’d definitely like to incorporate some more vintage pieces into my wardrobe. Do you have any favorite vintage shops in the DC area?
