AerieREAL Pop-Up Tour!


When Aerie — American Eagle’s sleepwear + lingerie line — opened in my hometown mall in 2008, I was overjoyed. I was so excited to finally have a lingerie shop that wasn’t intimidating and actually fit my body type. When Aerie launched its untouched photo campaign in 2014 l fell all the brand all over again. The fact that Aerie promotes self love + acceptance AND creates cute, high quality clothes are just two reasons I’m so excited to be partnering with them for their DC AerieREAL Pop-Up Tour!

On Sunday, December 10, the brand will be popping up in Georgetown at the corner of M Street and Wisconsin NW (the PNC Bank corner) from 11 am – 6 pm. Not only will they be featuring their winter line of bralettes, cozy sweaters, PJs, and quirky beanies, there will be a DIY  Dream Pillow Station, FREE tote with any purchase, and FREE cozy cable knit blanket when you spend $65+. To top it all off, Aerie will be donating 50% of the pop-up’s proceeds to N Street Village, a local charity that empowers homeless and low-income women in DC to claim their highest quality of life. That’s shopping for a cause that I can get behind. 


Whether you’re shopping for holiday gifts or treating yourself, I hope that I’ll see you at the pop-up in a few weekends! If you can’t wait for the pop-up, you can shop the items I’m wearing in this post below!

Join Me For the Undeniable Boutique One Year Anniversary Party!

Puppies, poptails, and cute clothes? That’s my kind of party. 

I’m so excited to be partnering with Undeniable Boutique to celebrate their one year anniversary at their Mosaic Location and am sharing this post because I wanted to extend an invitation to all of my fellow fashion-forward gals in the DC area! Undeniable Boutique is one of my favorite, woman-owned businesses and I’m so excited to be part of this milestone with them. 

I’d love to have you join me for the party on Sunday, August 27 from 1 – 4 pm at their Mosaic Location. There will be poptails (prosecco popsicles, anyone?), plenty of new arrivals, spray tans by my girl Tiffany at On The Glow Nova, and Alicia (UB’s fab owner) has graciously decided to donate a portion of sales from the event to Pet Rescue Alliance. (Alicia and I initially bonded over our love for rescue dogs!) 

If you can attend, please RSVP here:

Read on for more details about about the store and the special guests at the event! 


I’ve written about Undeniable Boutique in previous posts (here, here, and here), and it’s one of my favorite retailers for a multitude of reasons. First of all, the pieces they carry aren’t easily found in the District, and they stock limited quantities so everything is unique and there’s a slim chance you’ll run into someone wearing the same thing as you. Second, it’s a local, woman-owned, small business, so it automatically gets brownie points. Last but not least, the staff is incredible. They are so friendly and accommodating and you walk out of there feeling like you just went shopping with your best friend. Alicia, the boutique owner, and I instantly connected over of love of dogs and doing everything we can to help find adoptable dogs their forever homes, and we eventually discovered that my company designed her first retail space in Fairfax Corner! Small world, it’s freaky.

I’ve only ever had one spray tan. It was from Tiffany at On The Glow NOVA and I don’t think I’ll ever get another fake tan from anyone but her. My spray looked SO real (the pictures in this post were shot two days after I got my spray) and Tiffany is the definition of a southern belle. She’s extremely hospitable, efficient, and makes you feel super comfortable even though you’re standing in a pop-up tent basically naked while she creates a perfect glow!

If you don’t already know, I’m a huge animal advocate and volunteer at my local animal shelter on the weekends as a dog walker. Alicia and I are both major supporters of “adopt, don’t shop” and a portion of sales from the event will be donated to the Pet Rescue Alliance, an organization where she ended up getting one of her pups! The alliance helps match rescue dogs from Texas with fosters and forever homes on the east coast and has been completely swamped this summer so we’re hoping this event will help bring some awareness to their mission! P.S. THERE WILL BE DOGS FROM THE ALLIANCE AT THE EVENT! You will probably find me with a poptail in one hand and my other hand petting a dog the entire time.


A Breezy Zaful Dress For An Evening At Kyirisan

DSC04022IMG_4801 (1)DSC04023DSC04024

Tuesday night, my friend Roxanne and I got to experience a five course wine pairing meal at Kyrisian (with the manfriend and Husband of Glam in tow, of course) and it was so amazing I had to dedicate a post to it. If you’re unfamiliar with the restaurant, it’s an Asian-French fusion spot tucked in The Shay. The service is fantastic, the decor is fabulous, and the dishes are a truly innovative take on fusion food

The four of us unexpectedly ended up at Kyirisan last winter for dinner after a movie and we loved the restaurant so much we hadn’t stopped talking about a return trip since that night. Somehow I ended up on the Kyirisan email list and the second I received a note about a five course meal with wine pairing from Early Mountain Vineyards for $85, I instantly forwarded it to Rox—we may have been the first people to make reservations because we jumped at the chance to attend so quickly. (Disclaimer, a five course meal with five glasses of wine for that price is a HUGE steal for DC dining prices. Most pre-fixe meals in DC start around $80 without drinks.) 

We all went to the restaurant straight from work and Rox and I were matching without even telling the other what we were wearing so we had to snap a twinning photo. My midi dress is from Zaful and it’s a perfect breezy piece that takes me from my sweltering commute to a freezing cold office to after work drinks. The best part? It’s only $12 and comes in four different colors! You can shop it here.   

At the dinner, we were greeted with a glass of rosé and passed hors d’oeuvres while the guests settled in. One of the biggest highlights of the experience for me was that the chef was generous enough to make my dishes vegetarian, which is pretty unlikely when it comes to large tasting groups! Once we were seated, Winemaker Ben Jordan of Early Mountain Vineyards talked us through what we were about to experience, and then we ate all the things. The dishes ranged from a take on sushi with watermelon and hot mustard to a spicy gnocchi tofu topped with popcorn (my favorite!) to a homemade blondie truffle as a goodbye treat. We actually ended up getting to sample six glasses of wine and Gerald and I liked two of the bottles so much we were able to order them from the restaurant with a discount! 

The dinner was one of my favorite events of the month, and the restaurant is planning on hosting more, so keep an eye out!
